Excellent. Easy to book for my old car to be collected, everything was confirmed by email and the car was collected at the time we agreed. The payment was in my account the same day and paperwork was hassle free. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend, quick and simple process

Very simple and easy. They picked up my car the next working day and paid the full amount they quoted me for. Absolutely seamless and smooth process, highly recommend

Scrap my car

They gave a good price and a great service totally hassle free very professional and money paid promptly straight into my bank account they also sorted the details for DVLA I would certainly recommend them Thanks again Paul

Very impressed, good service and saved me time and money

very good service, but the online form needs tidying - had to give out my bank details 3 times when it should only need to be done once and then confirmed correct by email, which they were not. The rest of the process was totally excellent.


Picked up efficiently by a handsome long-haired older guy whose signature looked, appropriately enough, like “Gorgeous” but was more likely (Greek??) Giorgios. My filthy old Punto was completely crushed in the end. Have him back? Yeah I would.

Brilliant service!

An absolutely brilliant service! It was all done very professionally and I can thoroughly recommend it. Everything I was told was straightforward and happened exactly as expected.

Excellent service.

Excellent service, from initial phone call, confirmation of collection date and time, and collection of vehicle and bank payment. The whole process was smooth and well handled by all staff concerned. Thank you.


Very easy service to use, quick quote, no hassle to collect car form house. Arrived when they said they would. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking to scrap their cars.

Very good!

A very good service, can't really fault it in any way. A good price offered, good communication, good collection and full price paid the following day.
