Scrap Yard

Are you looking for a car recycling centre near you? Trust A Trader is on hand to help, with our online directory of checked and rated local scrap yards.

If it will cost you more to fix your vehicle than it is actually worth, you may decide to scrap it. Vehicle recycling is fairly simple, but there are rules and regulations that need to be followed. The value of scrap vehicles is dependent on the global value of recycled materials, such as steel. When global steel prices are low, it is possible that you will not be offered any money for your scrap vehicle, simply free collection, but when materials are in short supply and commodities cost more, vehicle recycling centres will place a higher value on your scrap vehicle. If your vehicle is rare or of particular interest, it may gain more money for scrap as the vehicle recycler will take it apart for parts before crushing it; be cautious if you are tempted to sell parts before scrapping your car, as scrap yards often charge a collection fee for partially dismantled cars.

If you need to scrap your car, it is important that you know you are getting the best deal from your local car recycling specialists. By choosing an independently rated and reviewed scrap yard on Trust A Trader, you know you are choosing one you can trust.
