Our UK wide network collects your vehicle free of charge, therefore it is not necessary for you to drop your vehicle off. Although some collectors do sometimes offer a little more for your vehicle if it was delivered to their address.

We use your post code to determine which collectors to get prices from, to make sure we are getting you the best possible price for your vehicle in your area.
Is CompareMyScrapCar fully GDPR compliant?
Yes, we fully comply with all GDPR regulations.
Do you sell spare parts?
Unfortunately, at this time CompareMyScrapCar don’t sell any spare parts. We are simply a comparison website with access to a large network of vehicle collectors across the UK, therefore don’t handle any cars or parts ourselves.
Do you collect vehicles with no wheels?
All of our collectors will only collect vehicles with wheels, and that roll. Therefore, if a vehicle doesn’t have wheels you would need a specialist collector with a HiaB to collect your vehicle.
What do I do with the V5C (log book)?
It is your responsibility to make the DVLA aware that you have sold or scrapped your vehicle, and you will need to fill in the V5C (log book) stating this and send off to the DVLA. Your collector will help you with this necessary paperwork if you are not sure what to do.
Do you need photos of my vehicle?
In some cases, i.e; for crash damaged vehicles, you will need to provide pictures of your vehicle. Our specialist staff will make you aware if pictures are required to get a guaranteed quote on your vehicle.
