Scrap my car in Colchester faq’s

When you’re looking to scrap your car, you may have questions. These are some of the questions we’ve answered for our Colchester car scrap customers.

Would you be able to pay me cash for my scrap car?

All of our payments are made via bank transfer. Due to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, we are not able to make cash payments.

We will pay by instant bank payment once the driver arrives to collect the car and the payment clears immediately BEFORE the vehicle is taken away.

We will wait until you have received it before the driver leaves with the vehicle. You will receive a receipt from the driver when the V5 is stamped for you to send to the DVLA.

How do I get my tax back after scrapping my car?

Scrap my car removal is a professional service that takes away unwanted vehicles typically for recycling.

The car registration must be surrendered to the vehicle recycler & the vehicle tax  will be refunded once the DVLA are notified. If you have a Direct Debit in place for your vehicle 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.

What should I fill out on the V5C?

When you sell a car to a scrap yard or dismantler, you will need to fill out section 9 of the V5C log book document. This is the yellow part on the 3rd page of the booklet.

The information that needs to be filled out on this form includes: your name and address, the name and address of the buyer, the date of the sale, a description of the vehicle, the vehicle registration number, and the odometer reading.

Our collection partner will be happy to help you with any questions you have about filling out this form.

Can i scrap if I’ve lost my V5C or keys?

That’s fine! It is quite common to lose your V5C. The DVLA will need to be notified in writing, and you will need to prove that you own the car.

Do you provide a certificate of destruction

We will also give you a certificate of destruction. only authorised centres are able to provide this. The certificate provides evidence the vehicle has been taken off of the road and scrapped.

Without this document you could potentially still be liable for insurance or road tax. We are an authorised centre and can provide you with the certificate of destruction for your vehicle.
