CarTakeBack makes it easy, convenient and rewarding to scrap your car, whatever its condition. We will calculate an instant, great value quote for your vehicle; all we need is your reg. number and postcode. If you are happy with your quote, you can choose between dropping your car off at one of over 200 UK branches, or having it collected by us.

How Our Scrap Value Calculator Works

Our calculator couldn't be simpler to use. All we need is your car's registration number and your postcode. We will do the rest in the blink of an eye.

  • Registration number: This helps us identify the exact make, model and age of your car, and ensures we calculate the best, most accurate quote possible.
  • Postcode: This helps us understand where you are in the UK, which means we can calculate the best scrap prices for your local area.

How To Have Your Scrap Car Collected

Once you have accepted the quote for your car, we can collect it for you. One of our team will contact you by email or phone to arrange an ideal collection time. We will do our best to collect at your chosen time, and we will collect most cars within just two working days.

Our collection times are usually Monday to Saturday between 07:00 and 19:00. If this doesn't work for you, do let us know and we'll do our best to make the timing work for you.

Dropping Your Car Off With Us

You can drop your car off at any one of our UK branches. You don't need to make an appointment – you will just need your reference number. Our branches are usually open between 09:00 and 17:00 on week days, and many are open on weekends. Find your local branch for exact timings.
