What happens when I agree to drop my car off?

What you'll need to do: 

  1. After you've accepted our quote, please make a note of your reference number.  This will guarantee the price.

  2. You’ll need to take your identification with you to the recycling centre (if you live in England or Wales).

  3. It helps if you take your registration certificate with you if you have it.

  4. It's also helpful if you can bring any keys and service history for your car, but these aren’t essential.

  5. Don’t forget to remove any personal belongings and rubbish. 

  6. After you've parked up at the recycling centre, go to reception and tell them your reference number.

What we'll do for you: 

  1. We’ll check and take a copy of your ID (if you live in England or Wales). 

  2. We’ll take care of the DVLA paperwork

  3. Finally, we’ll sort out the payment.

Don't worry if you've got any remaining road tax, if we issue you with a Certificate of Destruction DVLA will refund you automatically.
