When I scrap my car, what happens next?
Once you have agreed to our terms, our scrap car buyers will arrange for a free collection service to get your car. To prove that the vehicle in question is lawfully yours, all you will need is your VC5. Whether your vehicle is parked privately or on the street, we will come to pick it up and take it away at the agreed time. It is important to note, however, that our Billericay car scrapping service will never involve us handing over cash, as this is no longer legal. We will transfer the agreed amount to your bank account instead.
After the car is taken away, it becomes our responsibility too, so you won’t have to worry about paperwork.

After scrapping my car, how do I get my tax back?
Car scrapping is the process of removing unwanted vehicles from the road for recycling. In order to cancel the vehicle tax, the car registration must be surrendered to the recycling company. Direct Debits for car tax will be automatically canceled by the DVLA and any months remaining on the tax will be refunded. We will issue a check payable to the registered owner of the vehicle. If you are the legal owner but not the registered keeper, you can write or contact the DVLA with proof of your ownership, such as a bill of sale. If this is the case, you should provide your name, address, and registration number. Please mention that you wish to receive your car tax refund at your address.

Get in touch (5mins) – To request a free quote, call us or fill out our online form. Please provide us with some basic information about your car, such as its make, model, and age.
Book a collection (2 – 4 hours) – Once you accept our quote, we’ll schedule a convenient time to collect your car. We cover the entire Baildon area, so no matter where you live, we can come to you.
Clear out your car (5mins) – Take a few minutes to inspect your car before we collect it. Make sure you have removed all decorative items from the vehicle and that you haven’t left anything behind. You should also remove any personal belongings from the car, as they will not be covered by our insurance
Put your scrap car onto our loader (10mins) – An average scrap car collection takes between 5 and 10 minutes, although this can vary depending on the car. Providing your car is accessible to the tow truck and you have all the paperwork ready, you’ll simply need to sign the appropriate section of your V5C logbook. Your car will be hooked up to the collectors’ truck, and you’ll be done. It may take a little longer if the vehicle is difficult to access, has no wheels, or cannot be pulled.
Immediate payment (5mins) –
Scrap metal dealers are now prohibited by law from paying cash for scrap cars. The law is part of broader legislation aimed at preventing car theft for scrap. You will instead be paid directly into your bank account.
An average collection takes about half a day from quote to collection
What can i expect to get paid if I scrap my car Billericay
The first thing you need to determine when scrapping your car is its value. The payments for scrapped vehicles can vary widely, depending on several factors when bought by an authorised treatment facility. Two of the most important factors to consider are the size and weight of your vehicle. Your car’s make, model, and age are also important. Furthermore, the continuously fluctuating scrap metal market can affect the price quoted. Location is another factor to consider when choosing your scrap dealer. Dealers may be willing to pay more for specific areas, such as Billericay, where cars are located. The condition of your car when it is delivered to the scrapyard will also affect its value. If a car has been stripped of all its parts, it will be less valuable than if it is still running.

Why should you scrap your vehicle with Scrap Car Kings?
Scrap Car Kings Billericay makes scrapping your car as easy as possible. Unless you have scrapped a car before, the process can seem daunting. Our scrap car 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.
We are all aware of the pressing need to reduce carbon output and make sure vehicles are as environmentally friendly as possible. Since older vehicles don’t have the same technology as modern ones, it’s more responsible to take them off the road and scrap them. We offer the best scrap car prices in Essex and ensure a fair deal for you.
All of our payments are made via bank transfer. We are compliant with the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, which means we cannot make cash payments. Upon arrival of the scrap car driver, we will pay by instant bank transfer. If the payment clears immediately before the vehicle is removed, we will wait until you confirm that you have received it before the driver leaves with the vehicle. The driver will stamp your V5 and issue you with a receipt to send to the DVLA.
The price we offer for your scrapped vehicle is guaranteed, and we provide evidence of full compliance with the regulatory authorities that govern scrap metal dealers. We are connected to an authorized treatment facility and all relevant environmental agencies. Authentified Treatment Facilities are subject to rigorous quality and safety inspections. Recycling or otherwise scrapping your car in a non-ATF is illegal due to the potential hazards associated with car parts, such as batteries and engines.
Additionally, we contact the DVLA directly to confirm that the vehicle has been scrapped, and all paperwork is provided immediately.
We accept a wide variety of vehicles, including new cars, old unwanted cars, MOT failures, accidentally damaged vehicles, vans, trucks, and 4x4s. We also buy newer “non-scrap” cars that we will pay a premium for, especially if they are under 8 years old.
