How do I scrap my vehicle for immediate payment?

At Thanet Metal Recycling we believe in scrapping made easy. In the past, you would often pay to have your vehicle taken off your hands when it has come to its end of life.

But new guidelines where put in place to avoid abandoned vehicles, meaning that disposing of your end of life vehicle should be free. And because of the increase in demand for scrap metal, you can get some money for your vehicle that is being scrapped.

By Law, this has to take place at a scrapyard, or a Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) and also they are licensed by the Environment Agency. Taking your end of life vehicle (ELV) anywhere else is illegal, so make sure they’re fully licensed to scrap your vehicle.

Also, you need to make sure that you inform the DVLA if you’ve scrapped your vehicle. Failure to do so, you could be fined £1,000.

The process of recycling your vehicle is also beneficial for the environment, as some parts are often recycled afterwards.

What paperwork do I need to scrap my vehicle?

Make sure you have the correct paperwork before scrapping your vehicle. You’ll need:

The vehicle logbook (V5C) – Part of your identity to prove the vehicle is yours, without a vehicle logbook you cannot scrap your vehicle as you must prove ownership. Don’t forget to keep the yellow slip from the vehicle logbook (V5C/3) and also get a receipt from the ATF.

A Certificate of Destruction (CoD) will then be posted or emailed to you. A Certificate of Destruction is a DVLA certificate that proves you’ve had the vehicle recycled, and exonerates you of any future liability for the vehicle.
