How do I sell my scrap car?

Selling your scrap car is done in just 3 easy steps...

Step 1: Scrap Car Price

Start by getting a quote for your scrap car. To find out how much your scrap car is worth, simply enter your car details and location to get an instant price. We'll use your car vehicle details to find out the type of car you have, together with your postcode to find its location, so that we can offer you the best price for your scrap car.

We may also ask you a few questions about the condition of your car, and you'll have the option to upload photos so we can provide the best price based on what you tell us. There's no obligation and if you're not quite ready, your quote will be valid for seven days, giving you time to think it over.
