Quick and easy, smooth collection with updates along the way. Also turns out someone had stolen the catalytic converter from my car, but Scrap Car Kings still took it away (with a fair lower price). Thank you!

Would you like to know more about scrapping your car in Essex? Here are some of the most common questions we receive from our customers.

What is an Authorised Treatment Facility?

An Authorised Treatment Facility or ‘ATF’ is a site that is authorised by the Environment Agency and must follow strict environmental guidelines to scrap a car.

No. As long as somebody can be there on your behalf to permit access to the vehicle and provide the necessary documentation then it can be done without you. They will need to show the collection driver the necessary - photo ID, V5 documentation and a recent utility bill as proof of ownership.

On occasions we have people come to us who have already sold off the wheels of their car and are looking to scrap the remaining parts. However, in most cases we will not take a car without wheels.

Our scrap collectors use excellent recovery vehicles with powerful winches to pick up cars and vans of varying conditions without issue, however, it requires different equipment to scrap a car without wheels.

Because of this, keeping the wheels on your vehicle is important if you plan to scrap it.
