    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.

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

    By Law the vehicle needs to be scrapped at a scrapyard or Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) which is licensed by the Environment Agency. Taking your End Of Life Vehicle (ELV) anywhere else is illegal.

    You need to make sure that you have informed the DVLA that you have scrapped your vehicle. Failure to do so could result in you being fined £1000.

    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 will need:

    The vehicle logbook (V5C) – Part of your identity to prove the vehicle is yours, without a vehicle log book you cannot scrap your vehicle as you must prove ownership. Do not forget to keep the yellow slip from the vehicle logbook (V5C/3) and also get a receipt from the Authorised Testing Facility (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 from any future liability for the vehicle.

    Top scrap yard !

    Phoned them up about a car I had for scrap or spares, they came the same day and picked it up from outside my house, top price paid also as I had another quote from another local scrap yard and they was offering less.

    don't know if prices were the best wasn't worried for the little bit I had but very helpful. Floging scrap has got much more official since the last time I did it but money was in the bank within half an hour will go back there again next time I've collected enough to bother with (probably another 3 or 4 years
