Why Scrap your car?
The most obvious reason, of course, is that it’s simply stopped working! If your car’s no longer roadworthy and your garage mechanic has told you it’s not worth repairing, taking it off the road is the
only responsible and safe thing to do.
And if your car’s MOT or car tax has run out, or the insurance has lapsed but you’re keeping it on the road, you’re risking more than life and limb – you may receive a fine from the DVLA, points on your
license or even be at risk of prosecution.
When you pass on your unwanted car to us for vehicle scrapping, we will pay you the best price around and make sure that it’s disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

What's this about paperwork?
We know you hate paperwork, so scrapping a car with Car and Metal Recyclers makes it easy. We will notify the DVLA of the vehicle scrapping, and they will update their records. We will give you an official
Certificate of Destruction (CoD). This vital document proves that the vehicle has been destroyed and that you are no longer the registered owner.
Scrap dealers with less integrity than Car and Metal Recyclers may neglect to give you a Certificate of Destruction, then go on to resell a potentially dangerous car, or use it in illegal activities. Without
a CoD, you are still the registered owner and potentially liable.
When Car and Metal Recyclers give you a Certificate of Destruction, it’s your guarantee that your scrap car has been recycled to the highest legal and environmental standards, and that you no longer hold
responsibility for it.
