  • light van
  • 3-wheeled motor vehicle (but not a motor tricycle)

If you want to scrap any other type of vehicle you can still take it to an ATF, but you won’t get a CoD.

A CoD is proof that you’ve handed over the vehicle for scrap.

You could still be liable for traffic offence penalties or vehicle tax if you don’t have a CoD when your vehicle’s scrapped. # scrap car

Recycling Your scrap car The Legal Way

The person present at the time of collection will have to provide Photo I.D and some form of address proof,recent Utility Bill/Bank statement, etc. The law about cash for cars.

Why do I need photo I.D to Scrap My Car + Cashless Payment

Due to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, we now need to obtain a copy of your Photo I.D and a recent Utility Bill (no more than 3 months old). We understand that this may be inconvenient and it was never required before, but that is now the law. We don’t create the rules; we just have to make sure we adhere to them.  

The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 replaced all previous legislation, but the big change was car breakers as well as scrap metal dealers weren't able to buy any scrap metal for cash, including vehicles. Companies also now have to take copies of the persons Photo ID and a recent utility bill. Cars wanted. We buy any scrap car
