At Take My Scrap Car, we understand the importance of timeliness where end-of-life vehicles are concerned.  But assuming you would prefer to get the job done sooner rather than later, exactly how long does it take to organise collection of a scrap car?

As with most things, the answer depends on a number of factors.

Of course, one of the few things most scrap cars have in common is their tendency to become scrap cars at short notice.  Scrapping and recycling a vehicle doesn’t tend to be something you can plan for.  All of a sudden, you find yourself lumped with a vehicle that no longer functions, and you need to get rid of it as quickly as possible.

Call For a Quote 

When this happens, the first thing you need to do is call Take My Scrap Car for a quick quotation.  Alternatively, you can complete the online form on our website, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Based on scrap values on the day, we will provide you with a fair and honest quotation for your scrap car.  All of which takes no more than a few minutes, after which you will be able to decide whether or not you want to go ahead.

If so, we’ll arrange to collect your scrap vehicle at a time and date to suit your schedule.  How quickly we can be there will depend on how far from our main offices you are located, and whether we have any drivers out and about in your area at the time.

More often than not, we can accommodate urgent requirements with same-day or next-day collection services. We collect and dispose of scrap vehicles during daytime, evenings, and weekends alike, so we’re pretty flexible with our availability.

Even during peak times, we always do our best to carry out collections within no more than a few working days.  But if you need to get rid of your old car as quickly as possible, call for a chat with a member of our team, and we’ll be with you in no time. 

What Happens Next?

Once your car has been collected, you will be provided with a formal certificate of destruction for your records. This serves as legal evidence of the disposal of your end-of-life vehicle, in accordance with UK legislation.

After which, the full price quoted for your scrap car will be transferred directly into your bank account. All services provided by Take My Scrap Car are 100% free of charge, so the price we quote is the price we pay – no deductions.

All scrap car values are calculated on the basis of scrap values on the day, enabling us to guarantee an unbeatable deal.
