Maximising Scrap Car Prices

Your End of Life Vehicle (ELV) is never worthless, regardless of what some might claim. Even if it's only worth its scrap value, every ELV holds some value.

Here are 5 steps to help you extract the maximum value from your ELV and secure the most favourable scrap car prices:

Many scrap dealers reduce their prices as the month ends due to handling their high workloads during this busy period. By starting your research early in the month, you can secure a quote at the highest rate.

Removing parts from your vehicle can significantly decrease its value and may deter companies from buying your car. The more parts your ELV has, the higher its value to a dealer.

Settling on a price for your ELV and then having to renegotiate when it's collected can be frustrating. That's why it's crucial to find a company like Take Scrap Car that offers guaranteed prices.

As long as the description we received is accurate, we'll give you the agreed price with no disputes, no complications, and absolutely zero haggling.

You can reclaim the road tax you've paid on your vehicle by informing the DVLA that you no longer own the car. They will then cancel your vehicle tax and automatically issue a refund cheque for any full months left on your vehicle tax.

Some scrappage firms might attempt to decrease their price by £25 if you tell them you don't have your V5C or log book. Don't fall for this!

At Take Scrap Car, we'll collect your ELV without a log book and will never attempt to deduct £25 off the agreed price. Remember, these five steps will help you get the best possible price when scrapping your car.
