Of all the ways to get cash for scrap cars, the offering from CompareMyScrapCar is probably one of the easiest.
That’s because we remove the need for you to contact various scrapyards near you and having to give them the same details in a bid to find the best payer.
Instead, it’s easier to fill in your details, just once, and then have a member of our team contact you to confirm those details before we approach more than 120 scrap car collectors who will then bid on your vehicle.
This means there is not only lots of competition to offer the best price for your unwanted vehicle, but you also get to approach lots of scrap car collectors in your area as quickly as possible.
Those collectors will then make a bid with the winner – that’s the one offering to pay the most money for your scrap car – then getting in touch to arrange a pickup which will be free and at a time that suits you.
Scrap my car for cash
There’s also something really important for those who want to ‘scrap my car for cash’ because it’s now illegal to be paid money when your scrap car is picked up.
And because it’s illegal, you should be wary of any scrapyard offering to pay cash when scrapping your car because you will be committing an offence and, worse still, you will be still held liable for what happens to your car after you hand it over.
So, for example, the scrapyard may rack up speeding tickets or even dump the car body somewhere for you to deal with. And the authorities will hand you a bill if they have to remove it.
It’s important to appreciate that only reputable scrapyards that are authorised treatment facilities can give you a Certificate of Destruction which is official proof that you have disposed of your scrap car carefully and legally.
Thankfully, all of the scrap car collectors in the CompareMyScrapCar network are authorised treatment facilities and they can give you the certificate.
The best scrap car prices
Indeed, as part of our offering the best scrap car prices you’ll be reassured that we and our agents comply with the law.
So, not only should you use an authorised treatment facility, you also need to be wary of any scrapyard offering to hand you a certificate of some kind in the belief that this will be a Certificate of Destruction. Unless it actually states those words, then it’s highly unlikely that it will be valid proof.
It’s not worth the time and trouble dealing with these scrap car firms and it makes your life easier to use a reputable firm and be paid directly into your bank account when your car is picked up.
Also, scrap car prices vary on a regular basis and the age and model of your vehicle will also have an influence of the prices being offered – with newer and heavier cars tending to deliver the best prices.
