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’ll 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 from you – scrap car collection is free! One of our team will contact you by email or phone to arrange an ideal collection time. We’ll do our best to collect at your chosen time, and we collect most cars within just two working days.

Our collection times are usually Monday to Saturday between 7am and 7pm. If this doesn’t work for you, do let us know and we’ll do our best to make the timing work.

4.9/5 stars based on 741 service ratings over the past year

Great service.

Easy to use, straightforward process to book the collection and receive payment. I'd recommend, especially if you're not able to take your car away yourself.

Very Straightforward and Professional

Very easy and straightforward to use the car buying service. Good prices offered..Good communication. Very professional. Would definitely use the service again.

Prompt reliable no hassle service

Very simple, fair price paid for vehicle, prompt collection and certificate of destruction received promptly. Glad I found them as many other firms won't take very old cars.

5 stars

Very easy to deal with this company, they did every thing they said , payment was within 24 hours. And a good price paid. The collecting driver was very friendly & courteous, altogether an excellent transaction

Thumbs up for cartakeback

Gave me a fair immediate quote. Phoned me the next day to book a collection and the collection happened when I was told. The money was in my bank account by the next working day.

I would highly recommend

An efficient, friendly service. They gave me over £100 more than a 'tatter' had offered me and the money was in my account a couple of hours after the vehicle had been collected. The guy whom collected it was friendly and informative.

Efficient, friendly service. All sorted in a jiffy

Really efficient service. Friendly call to get everything organised. Pickup was prompt and the payment and paperwork came through quickly. Would recommend to anyone

Very pleased

Very efficient and friendly service. Collection man was very cooperative and patient even though we had to keep a medical appointment on the same day as collection.
