Why Scrap your vehicle with Scrap Car Kings?

At Scrap Car Kings Essex we make the process of scrapping your car as easy and hassle-free as possible. We understand that the process can seem daunting if you have never scrapped a car before. Our website FAQ section explains the process in clear detail and you can call us on 07944 495 495 for a free estimate or if you have any questions about the process.

Everyone is aware of the pressing need to reduce carbon output and make sure that cars are as environmentally sustainable as possible. Older vehicles have not been fitted with the same technology as today and it’s more responsible to take them off the road and scrap them. We offer the best scrap car prices in the Essex area and we ensure a fair deal for you.

We conduct all our payment processes via bank transfer. We comply with the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 which means that we are unable to make cash payments. We pay by instant bank payment once the driver has arrived to collect the car and the payment clears immediately BEFORE the car is taken away and we will wait for you to check you have received it before the driver leaves with the scrap vehicle. The driver will stamp the V5 for you to send off to the DVLA and issue you with a receipt.

As well as giving you peace of mind on the price of your scrapped vehicle, we provide evidence of full compliance with the regulatory authorities governing scrap metal dealers. We are connected to a fully certified Authorised Treatment Facility and all relevant environmental agencies. Authorised Treatment Facilities must pass stringent quality and safety checks in order to operate. It is against the law to recycle or otherwise scrap your car in a non-ATF due to the potential hazards associated with car parts such as car batteries and engines. We also liaise directly with the DVLA to assert that the vehicle has been scrapped and you will receive all your paperwork immediately.

We are available to take many different types of vehicles, including new cars, old unwanted cars, MOT failures, accidentally damaged vehicles, vans, trucks, 4x4s and old classic cars. We also buy newer “non-scrap” cars too which we will offer premium prices for especially if under 8 years old.

Contact our team 

The easiest way to contact us is by calling 07944 495 495 for a hassle-free and no-obligation estimate on your vehicle. You can also find all the details you need to get started on our website.

We are a professional organisation with an outstanding reputation for quality work and excellent customer service. We take pride in having helped numerous residents outside the M25 and in the Essex area with their car scrapping needs and provide a fast turnaround on payment for your vehicle. We provide on-time collection and ensure that you receive all your documents in a timely manner. Most importantly, we will communicate with you throughout the entire process so that you are fully updated by phone, text and email.

Scrap My Car FAQs


Do you only scrap cars in Essex?

We scrap cars in all areas of London within the M25. We also scrap cars throughout Essex, in all areas around the M11 and A12 and if you aren’t sure whether we collect in your area, give us a call to have a chat with one of our friendly representatives.

How do I scrap my car?

Whilst it may seem like a daunting process, scrapping your car with Scrap Car Kings is actually very easy as we do all the work and you don’t need to visit a scrap yard. Once you’ve got in touch with us over the phone or via our website, we will take some details about your car and offer you a quote. When you have agreed the price, we will pay you the money and bring a truck to any destination in Essex to collect your vehicle and the Vehicle Registration Document. Once your car has been scrapped we will send you a Certificate of Destruction.

What is the Vehicle Registration Document?

All cars should have a Vehicle Registration Document, also known as a VC5. This registers your vehicle with the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency) and includes important details about the car, including the date it was first registered, manufacturer, engine size and colour. This document proves that the car you are scrapping belongs to you, which is why we need to have it to enable us to take your car.

Can I scrap my car today?

We will offer you an instant quote for your car as soon as you have got in touch with us by phone or via our website. We will collect your car from you as soon as possible, depending on how busy we are and how many other cars we have to collect. Whilst this may not be on the same day, we will arrange with you to collect your vehicle at a time that works best for you.

Do I need to be present when you collect my car?

No. If it isn’t convenient for you to be around when we come to collect your car, you can ask a neighbour, relative or friend to hand over the keys and relevant documents. It is usually a very quick process to collect your car and should take between 5 and 10 minutes, though this depends on where your car is parked, how big it is and whether it is still in good working order or not.

Do you only scrap cars in Essex or other vehicles too?

Cars are what most people ask us to scrap, we also regularly scrap vans too, and can scrap most vehicles with wheels. Just give us a call and tell us what vehicle you have and we’ll let you know if we can scrap it. We also buy newer vehicles that still run well which don’t need to be scrapped. We pride ourselves on offering the best quotes in Essex and the surrounding areas, especially for cars that are less than 8 years old and in good working order.

What state does my car have to be in?

It’s important that your car is complete, which means it must have all the elements that make it drivable, like a catalytic converter, battery, wheels, etc. If these parts are missing, we can’t collect your car.
