So, you've arranged to
deliver your scrap car to a CarTakeBack scrap car recycling
centre. Here's what happens next.
Please make a note of your reference number which begins 'CC';
this was shown at the end of the quotation process and will also be
shown on your confirmation e-mail. You will need this
reference number when you deliver your scrap car.
You should take any documents you have for the scrap car with
you such as the registration document (V5C/logbook), MOT
certificate, handbook and any service history (don't worry if you
don't have any of these documents as we'll still be able to accept
your car), as well as any keys. Please also remove any
personal belongings and any rubbish. Remember to remove the
tax disc if you wish to claim back any remaining road tax.
When you arrive at the CarTakeBack scrap car recycling centre
you should park your scrap car safely in the designated area and
make sure that you have removed all of your personal belongings,
before reporting to the main reception. You should then hand
over your printed confirmation containing your reference number, in
order to guarantee your quote.
Your car will be assessed to confirm that it meets the terms of the
quotation; in particular whether it is complete and free from
waste. If these terms are not met the price may need to be
adjusted. You will have the chance to accept or reject any
new quotation before you hand over your scrap car.
Certificate of Destruction
You will then be issued with a DVLA Certificate of Destruction
while you wait, or if you're in a hurry it can be sent out to you
by e-mail if we have your e-mail address or if not, then by post.

or toxic oil tipped down the drain. Read more about the
