How to Recycle Your Scrap Cars and reduce the environmental impact

If your car is over 16 years old, it won’t be fitted with a catalytic convertor making it a poor choice for buyers who are concerned about their carbon footprint.
Deciding to scrap a car in Dunmow is actually a very environmentally friendly choice for a car owner to make. Here at Scrap Car Kings, we make sure that the parts that we scrap can then go on to be made into something new.

Scrap my car in Great Dunmow 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 Great Dunmow 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 car recycling company to cancel the vehicle tax. If you have a Direct Debit in place for your car 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 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.
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 your 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. If you do not have a V5C log book you can go to our article on how to sell a car without a V5 for more information
Our collection partner will be happy to help you with any questions you have about filling out this form.
Is it possible to scrap a car without paperwork
If you don’t have a registration certificate, you can still contact the DVLA to let them know your car has been scrapped. Make sure to give the full details of the scrap yard or recycling center handling your car, as well as the full car details including registration, make, model, and date of sale.
The DVLA will need this information in order to remove the vehicle from their records and avoid any penalties for unlicensed vehicles. By law, all scrap yards and recycling centers must be licensed by the Environment Agency, so you can be confident that your car will be disposed of safely and responsibly.
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.
