Why Is Norwich Car Recycling Important?

Every year, an incredible ONE MILLION cars are taken off UK roads, once and for all. This amounts to millions of tons of waste material and components, of which around 90% can be recycled or reused.

Unfortunately, research suggests that at least 10% of these cars simply disappear into thin air. That’s at least 100,000 vehicles per year, which rather than being recycled are allowed to go to waste. It’s estimated that thousands of scrap cars in Norwich alone are confined to scrap heaps annually, which amounts to a tragic waste for the UK’s recycling cause.

Doing your ‘bit’ for the environment is about more than simply separating your household waste. When the time comes, you need to pass your vehicle over to a Norwich car recycling specialist you can trust. This way, nothing has to go to waste needlessly.

Effective car recycling massively reduces carbon emissions, prevents pollution entering UK waterways and saves the economy incalculable sums every year.  The average Norwich scrap car might not look like much to you, but holds more value than you think!

So next time you’re looking to scrap a car in Norwich, you know who to call!

Norwich Car Recycling FAQ:

 Still, have questions on car scrapping and recycling? Read on for all the information you’ll need to make the right choice when the time comes:

How do I scrap my car in Norwich?

With us, all you need to do is pick up the phone and let us know where you are. We’ll arrange a convenient time and date to pay you a visit and take your scrap car off your hands.

What do I need to scrap my car in Norwich?

Along with the car’s V5C registration document, we’ll also need proof of your identity and the car keys. It’s also useful to hand over any locking wheel nut keys at the time of collection.

Why do you need my identification?

Because we take a strong stance against fraud and misuse of car scrapping services. It’s simply a way of ensuring we know exactly whom we’re dealing with, which is a legal requirement in accordance with the Scrap Metal Dealer’s Act 2013.

What if I don’t have my VSC document?

These things go missing all the time, so don’t worry too much. You’ll simply need to get in touch with the DVLA to let them know you’re planning to scrap your car and follow their instructions accordingly.

What’s an Authorised Treatment Facility?

Contrary to popular belief, not every Norwich car recycling specialist’ plays by the rules. In fact, it’s a legal requirement to ensure that your vehicle is passed on to an Authorised Treatment Facility. Which is, essentially, a facility that is officially licensed to do what it does and is regulated by the government.

How quickly can you collect my scrap car?

It all depends on the time and date of your inquiry, but we generally have drivers out and about 24/7. This means that it’s perfectly possible to organize same-day collections if we happen to be in your area at the time. If not, we’ll do whatever we can to collect your Norwich scrap car as quickly as possible.

Can I claim back my unused tax and car insurance?

You will be credited any unused tax by the DVLA automatically when they receive notification that your car has been scrapped. Refund policies differ significantly from one insurance provider to the next, so you’ll need to contact your insurer for more information.

Can a scrap my car in Norwich for cash?

Technically yes, but you might end up breaking the law in doing so. These days, it’s a legal requirement for UK car scrapping and recycling services to transfer payments directly into the bank accounts of customers. This ensures accurate and complete records are kept – one of the many measures used to prevent fraud where possible.

How much will my car be worth?

It’s impossible to say right now, as we calculate all vehicle prices in accordance with scrap values on the day. Nevertheless, we guarantee you will not find a better deal than any other Norwich car scrapping and recycling service. Feel free to shop around, but you’ll be back!

Whether ready to go ahead or simply considering the available options, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Contact a member of the team at Take My Scrap Car today for more information.

Why Should You Scrap Your Car?

By now, you probably understand the importance of responsible car scrapping and recycling in Norwich. But when does the time come to scrap a vehicle?  How can you be sure that now really is the time to get Take My Scrap Car on the job?

In our experience, these are the five most common reasons why our customers scrap their cars:

High running costs

If your car is costing you more to keep on the road than it’s worth, you’re pouring money down the drain for no good reason. Regular breakdowns, constant repairs, MOT failures, and so on – all the kinds of warning signs it could be time to scrap.

Unsafe to drive

It’s down to you and you alone to determine whether or not your car is genuinely safe to drive. The occasional rattle or squeak is one thing, but there are far too many dangerous faults that go routinely overlooked. Unless you have 100% confidence in the safety and integrity of your vehicle, you’re putting yourself and everyone else at risk by driving it.


If your vehicle is written off, responsibility may fall on you to dispose of it.  When fixing it or selling it simply aren’t options, why pay a traditional dealer to take it off your hands?  Instead, it makes far more sense to work with a leading Norwich car scrapping and recycling company. One that guarantees a fair price paid for every car collected!

Impossible to sell

Speaking of which, it could simply be that the used car you intended to sell hasn’t caught the eye of even a single buyer. These days, the second-hand car market is more heavily populated by outstanding vehicles in prime condition than ever before. Hence, anything that doesn’t make the grade might be better handed over to the recycling specialists.

A quick cash injection

Last but not least, many of our customers use the somewhat dated vehicles in their lives to provide them with a quick cash injection when they need it.  Scrapping and recycling a car isn’t going to make you rich, but can be a great way of boosting your bank balance in an instant. And once again, we guarantee you will not find a better deal from any Norwich car scrapping and recycling specialist!

Whether ready to organize the collection of your Norwich scrap car or simply explore the available options, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Call the team at Take My Scrap Car today, or fill out the online form and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
