The Procedure To Scrap Your Car

You can give us a call, or if you prefer, you can send us an email and provide us with the details of your car.

Once we know all the information we can then provide you with the price for your scrap car. We are confident you will be happy with this quote. Our previous customers have all been pleased to sell to their cars to Cars Equal Cash based on our unbeatable scrap car prices.

We then arrange a collection time to suit you. We aim to make this as easy for you as possible. We collect 7 days a week between 8am-8pm weekdays and 9am-4pm Saturday and Sunday. So let us know a time and a day that will suit you and we will be there!

Your disposed vehicle is then de-polluted at the ATF (Approved Treatment Facility i.e. Scrap Yard!) – this means all fuels, oils and liquids are removed. The tyres are also removed and the remaining metal is crushed and recycled. So you can rest assured your vehicle is being scrapped in the most environmentally-friendly form possible and by Governmental Approved methods.

We cover the areas of Nottingham, Derby, Stoke-On-Trent and other surrounding areas, call up to see if we are within range to come out to you.

What About Collection Day?

On the day we collect your vehicle, we can help you complete your part of the V5 Document* (log book) and the part you will need to send to the DVLA. We recommend you make a copy first.

We will not haggle with the agreed scrap car value we have given you. We then hand over in the full amount as agreed previously. Your trade-in car deal is done! You then put your feet up and we will do all the rest! So if you’re thinking where can I scrap my car, Cars Equal Cash is at your rescue!

What Happens To My Car?

One of our drivers, who are all licensed waste carriers, will then remove your vehicle from your specified location and will take it away on a recovery truck.

Your car is then taken to a Government Approved Treatment Facility (ATF) and then the disposal process begins. Your car is de-polluted whereby all oils, fuels and liquids are removed, as are the tyres and then all the metals of the car are compacted and recycled. We only dispose of cars within the guidelines set out by the Environment Agency and in line with Hazardous Waste Legislation, so you can rest assure your car is being scrapped legally and with the least impact possible on the environment.

The Legalities


As you have now sold your scrap car, you no longer want the vehicle to be registered with the DVLA with your name as the Registered Keeper. As the buyer of the car, Cars Equal Cash will hand over the Motor Trade/Dismantler section of the V5 Document to the ATF when we take in your vehicle.

This will allow the ATF to register your vehicle as an ‘end of life vehicle’ (ELV) with the DVLA, and as soon as the DVLA receive your part of the V5 Document, the vehicle will be deleted from the DVLA database and no longer exist within their system.

Please don't forget to submit your part of the V5 Document to avoid costly repercussions- you could be fined £80 if the DVLA records still include your vehicle on their database and you have not registered a SORN.

Cars Equal Cash can STILL buy and collect your vehicle even if you no longer have a V5 registration document or any section of it, providing you can verify for us that you are the legal owner of the vehicle. Ownership can be verified through several other means, including insurance paperwork, tax documents, or SORN notification.

In regards to the DVLA, the responsibility will lie with the Registered Keeper to inform them of the disposal of the vehicle in circumstances where the V5 is lost or missing. Unfortunately, we are unable to do this on your behalf, but the process is simple. All you are required to do is write to the DVLA and inform them of the registration number and the date the vehicle was scrapped. They will respond to you in 2-3 weeks with an acknowledgment letter of the car's disposal.

Cars Equal Cash offers fast, reliable, and easy scrap car collection.
