Scrap Car Services for the Brentwood and Chelmsford Areas

Cash For Car Essex provides a 24-hour a day, 7-day a week scrap car service to motorists around Brentwood, Chelmsford, Colchester and Braintree. On this page we’ve provided a step-by-step “scrap my car” guide.



Scrap Your Car in No Time At All



First of all, give our cash for my car service a call for a quote, and find out much your vehicle is worth as a scrap car. We offer generous, competitive payments that often surprise prospective customers. Keep in mind that if your car is badly damaged, then garages and dealerships around Chelmsford, Braintree, Colchester and Brentwood are unlikely to accept it for any money whatsoever – making a “scrap my car” service an even more attractive option.



We pride ourselves on being able to pick-up scrap cars within an hour of receiving a call from a seller in Colchester, Chelmsford, Braintree or Brentwood. Once you have accepted a quote from us, tell us the best time to pick up the vehicle and we will endeavour to accommodate it. Our team are very discreet, so if you’d rather the neighbours not know you’ve scrapped a car, it’s no problem. The vehicle will be out of your hair before you know it.



The best part! Payment will be arranged within the same hour time-frame we allow for collection. We can pay by cashier’s check, bank transfer or PayPal. It is illegal for “cash for my car” companies around Chelmsford, Braintree, Chelmsford, Brentwood or anywhere else in the UK, to actually pay in cash under the Scrap Dealers Act. However, the aforementioned methods are quick and easy, so don’t fret! If a scrap car company offers cash for your vehicle and not a bank transfer or cheque, then they are actively breaking the law and shouldn’t be trusted with your business.



We can fill out all relevant paperwork on your behalf and send it off to the DVLA. It is essential that the DVLA is informed of your car’s destruction, as otherwise, you may continue to be taxed on it. Within 7-days of scrapping your car, we will post a Certificate of Destruction to your Braintree, Chelmsford, Chelmsford or Brentwood home. This should be stored away in your personal records.
