Finding the right car scrappage company to scrap a car

Anyone who wants to know how to scrap a car must first become familiar with the modern state of the scrappage industry. Long gone are the days when you might have paid a company to take your car away. Today, it’s not just the metal bodywork of a car that is worth something. It is also other components from the alloy wheels and exhaust to the engine and gearbox. Even the tyres have many potential applications for reuse such as music studio sound insulation.

Two million cars are scrapped in the UK each year and as much as 85% of a car’s weight can be reused. Even if your vehicle consists of a large amount of less expensive materials such as fibreglass.

However not every company that you approach is necessarily going to provide the quality of service that you require. Or even the money to which you are entitled. You would be surprised by the great number of companies that are disorganised and fail to turn up at the agreed collection time. There are also companies that barter on the previously agreed price once the collector finally does arrive.

The result could be unmentioned collection fees or an amount of money for your vehicle that is below the original quote. This is why it’s important to choose a reputable company such as All Scrap Cars Northampton.
