The Chelmsford Area’s Scrap Car Questions Answered

Have you recently thought to yourself: “is it time to scrap my car?” Don’t be put off by any perceived complexity, it’s far simpler that you think!  Below we’ve answered a few questions we regularly receive from clients in and around Chelmsford who are new to the cash for my car industry. But if you have a different question for our team, don’t hesitate to call 07858 677 949.

 

 

Scrap Car F.A.Q

 

WHAT KIND OF VEHICLES CAN QUALIFY AS SCRAP CARS?

We will buy crashed and damaged cars, non-runners, insurance write-offs, MOT failures, salvage cars, junk cars, unregistered foreign vehicles and even spare cars. But it’s not just scrap cars we buy. We’ll also purchase bikes and vans for scrapping.

 

WILL YOU PAY CASH FOR MY CAR?

Under UK law, it is illegal for scrap car merchants to pay cash for your vehicle. Instead, instant bank transfer, PayPal or a cashier’s cheque should be employed. Whichever method you prefer, we’ll ensure that payment is both generous and prompt. In fact, we look to ensure that all our Chelmsford clients receive payment within an hour of receiving their call.

 

WHY SHOULD I SCRAP MY CAR?

If your car is old and performing poorly, then scrapping it for some money toward a new vehicle purchase may be a good idea. But if it is badly damaged, has failed an MOT or won’t run anymore – then it’s an even better idea to scrap it! Many clients call us when their vehicle is rejected by a garage or dealership. As an environmentally friendly, quick and easy way of disposing your vehicle, you can’t really lose when you choose Car For Cash Essex.

 

WHAT QUALIFICATIONS AND ACCREDITATIONS DO YOU HOLD?

We are an Authorised Treatment Facility, meaning we have received certification from the Environmental Agency to process scrap cars. This is important, as there are many scrap car companies operating in and around the Chelmsford area which have not been granted Authorised Treatment Facility status. Often these companies show blatant disregard for the environment, and recklessly dispose of hazardous materials that can contaminate soil and water sources.  We’re also registered with the DVLA. This affiliation allows us to fill out official paperwork on your behalf and quickly source a Certificate of Destruction – which puts an end to any tax or duty you might be paying on a scrapped vehicle.

 

DO YOU JUST COVER THE CHELMSFORD AREA?

No. In addition to covering Chelmsford, we pick up vehicles from all across Essex and surrounding areas.

This includes Colchester, Brentwood and Braintree.
