Ford Scrappage Scheme - Certificate of Destruction Guarantee

CarTakeBack promises that each and every car scrapped through our Ford Scrappage Scheme Dealer Portal will be issued with that all important DVLA Certificate of Destruction by the receiving CarTakeBack Authorised Treatment Facility.

The guarantee applies to all vehicles scrapped through our Ford Scrappage Scheme Dealer Portal, for the duration of the Ford scrappage scheme, where it is possible to do so. (Note that in some cases DVLA's online Certificate of Destruction system will legitimately issue a Notification of Destruction instead).

We aim to issue a Certificate of Destruction within 24 hours of receiving the vehicle in line with DVLA's guidelines.

In the unlikely event that a Certificate of Destruction has not been received within seven days, dealers should notify CarTakeBack who will investigate further.

Should the lack of a Certificate of Destruction result in losses to the dealer in relation to the scrappage incentive payment, we will pay up to £2,000 per vehicle subject to the provision of satisfactory evidence.
