Get a free, instant quote to sell your faulty car

Whether your car is ready to scrap or it has still got some miles left in it, CarTakeBack buys any faulty car. Simply tell us your registration and postcode to see how much you can sell your faulty car for. Our buyers in your local area compete to offer you the best deal for your vehicle, meaning you get the highest price for your faulty car.

We won't haggle. When you get a quote, simply answer a few questions about the condition of your car in advance and if you've given us accurate info, you'll get an accurate price, no chipping for things like scratches, or missing trim.

It’s completely free and there’s no obligation. Plus, we’ll even save your quote for seven days.

Free car collection 

Some car buying companies need you to drop your car off when you sell it -  that’s not always possible, especially if your car is faulty. However, CarTakeBack offer free car collection – we’ll contact you to arrange a time and place that's best for you. Get your car collected from work, home, a garage, or any place that suits you throughout the UK.

Official paperwork sorted

Whether your faulty car needs to be scrapped or not, we’ll help you to sort the necessary DVLA paperwork and avoid any potential fines. It’s vital that you ensure you’re free of responsibility of your old car. If you’re selling your faulty car to us, your local branch will help you to correctly inform the DVLA using your registration certificate.

If your car needs to be scrapped, we will provide you with an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction, proving you’re no longer responsible for the car.

Choosing to sell your vehicle with CarTakeBack means you can rest assured that everything legal will be sorted, hassle-free.
