For anyone searching online for a scrapyard with the term ‘scrap my car for cash’, then there are a number of issues you need to be aware of.
The first, and probably most important issue, is that it is illegal to pay someone in cash to pick up a scrap car.
Also, you should only deal with a scrapyard that is an authorised treatment facility which proves they are a reputable organisation because their activities are monitored by the Environment Agency.
And the last issue for anybody wanting to be paid in cash is that you must receive a Certificate of Destruction which is legal proof that you have legally disposed of your vehicle – without this certificate you have not done so and you will be held legally liable for whatever happens to your vehicle after you hand it over.
