If you want to sell your car hassle free, then you can’t go wrong using an online scrapping service. Even if you want more than the basic scrap value because your car simply needs a little work doing. In some cases you simply don’t want to shoulder the financial burden of repairing a damaged car. Most online scrap companies will modify their quote to accommodate for this.

The process is a simple one, and you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your house to do it.

STEP ONE – Just enter your registration number to receive the basic scrap value for your car. This will give you a starting point, and in most cases you will be quoted the best available scrap value for your car.

STEP TWO – If your car is still in reasonable condition and just needs some repair work, there is generally a section to provide more details. Outline what is wrong with the car, or alternatively the required outlay to repair the car. It’s also worth noting if the car is roadworthy in its current condition. This last point can add to the re-quote.

STEP THREE – Wait for the website to contact you with a revised quote. Alternatively you can call the company directly if you do not want to wait.

STEP FOUR – If you’re happy with the revised quote you can proceed with the sale.

The process from here is much the same as scrapping your car with any online service.

FINAL STEPS – You just need to agree a date and time for the car to be collected. Once done a representative will come to take the car away. If the car is not currently road worthy then a loader will be used. Cash will be payable on collection of the car.

All documentation will be dealt with by the scrapping company, with any remaining Road Tax being refunded once the DVLA have been informed of the sale.

Ideal if you want fast payment and don’t want the hassle of dealing with a private sale haggling.
