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 quote, no chipping the price 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.

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.

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.
