Can I scrap my van for cash

Scrapping your van for cash may seem like an attractive option, however it is important to be aware that scrap metal dealers are required by law to provide evidence of the transaction. This includes records such as the name of the person involved and a cheque or printed receipt. Without these documents, scrap van transactions are not in accordance with the Scrap Metal Dealers Act (SMDA) which makes them illegal. For this reason, it is crucial that any scrap van deal is checked and authenticated before being completed in order to stay within legal parameters. Our scrap van dealers pay via electronic transfer of funds (bank transfer).

What about filing in the paperwork?

We will notify the DVLA to inform them that we have scrapped a van, then you as a customer must then fill out the logbook about your scrap van and send it to the DVLA.

A confirmation letter will then be sent out. If you don’t receive any confirmation, we advise calling 0300 790 6802 to request a letter.

Steps to take before scrapping a van

Prepare the paperwork

When you’re getting your van ready for collection, be sure to have all the necessary paperwork on hand. This includes the V5c (logbook), any manuals, service history and receipts.

The driver will need to see all of this documentation before they can take possession of the van. Having everything in order will help make the process go smoothly and avoid any potential delays.

Empty your van

Before selling your van, it’s important to clear out all your belongings from the vehicle. This includes anything that might be under the seats or in the side of the door.

Many people place items in their van and then forget about them for months, but you will not be able to get any forgotten items returned to you.

It’s also important to clear out any rubbish from the vehicle. Buyers don’t expect a van to be waxed and polished for collection, but they can refuse to take a vehicle if the interior is filled with household waste.

By taking the time to clear out your van before selling it, you can avoid any problems with the sale.

Ensure that your van is accessible

When your van is in need of recovery, it is important to ensure that there is clear access for the recovery truck. Recovery vehicles are longer than average, so you’ll need to make sure that your van is situated somewhere where there is adequate room for manoeuvre.

If possible, try to park on a flat surface and remove any obstacles that may be in the way. By taking these simple steps, you can help to ensure a quick and efficient recovery process.
