4.9/5 stars based on 1,004 service ratings over the past year

Satisfied customer

Very fair with their offer and on time with their collection Offer was way higher than other other offers and payment was quickly transferred to my account.M Woods

Great service

Simple, quick and reliable service that lets you compare best rates for scrap. Booked, and sorted hassle free. No issues with payment. Will use again and recommend

Smooth process

All went really smoothly. I completed all details online then received a call within 10 minutes to confirm my answers and to confirm price etc. Car was collected within 2 days and I was paid about an hour after collection. Would recommend.

Car pick up

Easy process booking, but arranged pick up day missed, with no contact. Picked up next day. Few days delay in receiving payment, but eventually sorted.

Unnecessarily worried

Quick and easy. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be paid or the car wouldn't be reported as scrapped to the DVLA, but I was paid within 24hrs and the vehicle has been scrapped. The guy who came for the car was friendly and helpful.

A nice and easy service.

A nice easy service to use. Get your quote, they collect the car, you get paid. Nice! Driver doing the collecting needs to cheer up a bit, but we've all had those days.

Highly Recommend

Easy to access and contact. Speedy response and able to book a collection time that suited. Very fair price and money received quickly. Professional service on day of collection.

Painless, fast and professional

Well that was easy. Great communication from the off after the initial online quote, everything explained, collection bang on time, money transferred next day. Couldn't be smoother, very happy.

Your car could be worth more than the average!

Various factors contribute to the value of your scrap car, including, the demand for scrap metal and reusable car parts, plus the age, weight, condition, and even your location.
