Use A Reputable Local Firm To Recycle Your Vehicle
Don’t be tempted by the cash in hand crew. Use a legal service such as Scrap Car Kings who will offer you a fantastic price and quick pick-up.
If you’re in the market for a brand-new motor but don’t know what to do with the rust bucket you’ve been riding around in for the past decade, then it’s time to call a scrap car service. Not only will you be able to get a price that’s comparable with the trade-in value offered by most car dealerships, you also have the convenience of your car being picked up from your home. Scrap Car Kings offer the best scrap service in Essex but are additionally able to collect cars from all over London and Kent.
In order to protect the environment, since 2005 it has been required that any cars to be scrapped must be sent to an Authorised Treatment Facility, and that the scrapyards must possess a licence issued by the Environment Agency or the Scottish Environment Protection Agency. Such regulations ensure that vehicles are scrapped responsibly and that parts such as battery acid, engine parts and gearbox oil don’t harm the environment in any way. Scrap Car Kings are affiliated with a certified Authorised Treatment Facility, are fully compliant and are registered with all applicable environmental agencies. When you use this trustworthy sell car for scrap service, you can be assured that all legal boxes are being ticked, while doing the utmost to save the planet.
What Do You Need?
When the scrap driver arrives at your property, you will need to present the keys to your vehicle, the registration document known as V5C, a locking wheel nut alloy if your car has one and any other relevant paperwork that you may have. You’ll also need to produce your driving licence or passport to prove who you are. Scrap Car Kings will notify the DVLA that you are no longer the registered keeper of the vehicle and you may be eligible for a rebate in road tax and insurance attributed to it.
It’s not necessary to prepare your car in terms of cleaning, but always ensure that you’ve removed all personal belongings from the car, as once it’s gone, then it’s gone. You should also ensure that you’ve taken off any extra keys, such as those to your home, off the key set.
If you’re not able to be present at the handover, then that’s no problem. You can ask a friend, family member, or neighbour to meet the driver, so long as they’ve got the logbook, all relevant paperwork and keys.
How Do You Receive Payment?
Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous services out there that will offer you cash in hand to scrap your car. But this arrangement is now illegal. To scrap your car with a reputable service, an instant bank transfer will be made. This clears the money straight into your account, which both benefits you and satisfies the new regulations which require a paper trail of all scrap deals to be evident.
Scrapping your car really is a convenient way to get a great price for your old, or unused vehicle, with next to no effort required by you. Get this obstacle out of the way and you’ll have plenty more time and cash in your hands to start looking for the next car of your dreams.
