Many cars that are sold for scrap are no longer roadworthy which can make moving or delivering them yourself so that they can be sold very difficult and costly.

Once we have arranged to collect your unwanted vehicle, we’ll pay you the agreed scrap car price on the spot. As long as the vehicle is as described then we will never haggle or try to knock you down and the money is paid directly into your account before the vehicle is taken away.

Outstanding Scrap Car Prices
When you’re ready to scrap your vehicle, the first thing you’ll want to know is how much it’s worth. The payments for scrapped vehicles can vary widely, depending on several factors when bought by an authorised treatment facility.
The size and weight of your vehicle are two of the most important considerations as well as the make, model, age and condition. It’s important to remember that the continually fluctuating scrap metal market can have an impact on the prices quoted.
At Scrap Car Kings, our quotes are calculated by our team of experts who know the car scrapping network inside and out and liaise with our authorised treatment facility to get you the very best possible price for your vehicle.

Chelmsford Car Scrapping – FAQ’s
What Types of Vehicles Do You Accept for Scrap?
We know from experience that every car has value – new or old, roadworthy or not, broken or in good condition. We offer competitive prices for all types of vehicles, including;
- Non runners
- Mot failures
- Left hand drive foreign registered
- Insurance write offs
- Ex rental/lease vehicles
- Salvage/junk cars
Can You Pay Me Cash for My Scrap Car?
No. Due to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, all our payments are made via bank transfer and we are not able to make cash payments. The money is paid into your account when the driver arrives to collect the car and before they take it away.
If a company is offering to pay you cash for your scrap vehicle, then it may be worth reconsidering, as no legitimate scrap business works this way.
How Do I Get My Tax Back?
The car registration must be surrendered to the car recycling company to cancel the vehicle tax. If you have a Direct Debit in place for your tax, this will be automatically cancelled by the DVLA and any full months paid for which have not been used will be refunded.
A cheque will be issued and made payable to the registered keeper of the vehicle. If you own the car but you are not the registered keeper, you can write or contact the DVLA with proof of your ownership, such as a bill of sale.
In this instance, provide your name, address and car registration number. You should also mention that you would like the car tax refund sent to your address.
Is It Possible to Scrap a Car Without Paperwork?
If you don’t have a registration certificate, then you will need to be able to prove to us that you are the owner of the car.
You can also contact the DVLA to let them know your vehicle has been scrapped. They will need this information to remove the vehicle from their records which will help to avoid any potential penalties.
