Quick and easy, smooth collection with updates along the way. Also turns out someone had stolen the catalytic converter from my car, but Scrap Car Kings still took it away (with a fair lower price). Thank you!

We appreciate that it may be difficult for you to be there, so we are happy to work with someone else as long as they are able to provide us with the information and access to the car that we need.

When you’re looking to scrap your car for the most money, it’s important to find a reputable company who will give you a great price for it. There are lots of companies out there who claim to offer the best prices for scrap cars, but not all of them will deliver on their promises. Do your research and take the time to read reviews before you choose a company to scrap your car with. Once you’ve found a good company, the next step is to get your car ready for scrapping. Make sure that all of your personal belongings have been removed from the vehicle, and that it’s clean and tidy. The company you choose should be able to provide you with a great price for your car, regardless of its condition.

You can tell the DVLA that your car is being scrapped, on their website or by post.


If you would like to notify the DVLA on their website, you will need the name and address of the scrapyard, your V5C logbook number and your vehicle’s details such as vehicle registration number.

It will require an 11-digit reference number which you will find in section four if your logbook was issued after April 2019, or in section nine if it was issued before April 2019.

Fill out the form and the DVLA will now know your car has been scrapped.

By post

To notify the DVLA by post you will need the name and address of the scrapyard and the vehicle registration number.

DVLA recommends that you complete section 4 of your V5 logbook, or section 9 if your V5 dates from before April 2019. The address is:



SA99 1BA

You should obtain a receipt from the DVLA to confirm that everything has been taken care of for you.
