At Car Scrap Surrey, we’ve been scrapping and recovering vehicles for over three decades, so we know absolutely everything about the industry. That’s why we’d like to set the record straight on vehicle scrapping, so you’ll know exactly what to expect from the moment you realise your car’s joy-riding days are over.
Car scrapping can earn you money
One of the main reasons so many people leave their unwanted cars to rust and rot is because they think it would cost a fortune to get rid of them. Well, guess what? Not only is it absolutely free to have your old jalopy collected by us, but you can actually get paid up to £150 for your unused vehicle. Car Scrap Surrey simply pays you directly for your car and even absorb the cost of removing your tyres and glass, and extracting fuel. All we need is proof of ownership and you can be walking away with cash within minutes.
What to watch out for
Car scrappers purchase unwanted vehicles so that the metal parts can be safely recycled and reused. However, it’s critical that you go to a trustworthy vehicle scrapping service who will deliver a valid Certification of Destruction (CoD); otherwise, you run the risk of having your vehicle or its parts on the road illegally and YOU will be responsible. No matter what a service provider tells you, you should never have to accept a lower sum for your vehicle in exchange for a CoD. Just ensure that the authorised treatment facility receiving your vehicle is recognised and reliable.
How car scrapping benefits the environment
Scrapping your car isn’t just good for your pocket—it’s hugely beneficial for the environment as well. Disposing of an end-of-life vehicle in a landfill, throwing old tyres away in ditches, or pouring oil down the drain as toxic waste are all highly damaging to the environment and in many cases illegal and will carry fines and possibly a jail term too!.
Alternatively, recycling your vehicle by having it scrapped has been proven to reap rewards for the environment by reducing pollution and mining waste, saving energy and saving on raw materials in manufacturing.
However, the only way scrapping your decommissioned vehicle can benefit the environment is if you engage an authorised scrapping service such as ours that is equipped to properly recycle your vehicle and safely dispose of the associated pollutants.
Easy as 1, 2, 3!
So there you have it: a bird’s-eye view of the car scrapping industry from start to finish.
All it takes is one quick call, and then your vehicle should be collected and paid for at a fair price; a CoD should be issued, and the service provider must then recycle your vehicle and safely dispose of any associated waste.
To ensure that each of these steps is completed to the highest standards, giving you peace of mind without any unnecessary hassle, contact us at Car Scrap Surrey any day, at any time.
