Where can I get a car scrapped near me?
Where to scrap a car near me’ is a question many people ask when attempting to sell their car for scrap. Finding a local scrapyard that will give you a good price is simple. To find local scrapping yards online, use the free Government Portal. You can use it to find ‘cash for cars’ quotes too.
Once you have located a possible place that will buy your car, you’ll be able to view all the details about the yard and its opening times. You can also use Google Maps to find it in more detail.
After you’ve found the perfect scrapyard, arrange for them to collect your car and make sure you get paid before your vehicle is crushed.
The scrap car should not be driven and if you can avoid it, keep it on safe premises such as your garage or workshop until you move it because the police could stop and seize your car if they deem that it is being driven on public roads.
Also not, free towing is not guaranteed with every offer on price comparison sites. If you want a free tow, you need to look for that extra feature. Some scrapyards will give you free towing and others won’t.

What the local scrapyard does with your car
The scrapyard can recycle the parts from your car or sell them for profit, so if you have parts you want to keep, take them out before you sell your car. Likewise, if your car is not roadworthy and you don’t intend to repair it, then it may be better to take it to a scrapyard than a local garage where you will pay more.
The scrapyard has a whole network of people who either want your car, or can make some money from it. Because they buy hundreds of cars every week and store them all, they can afford to put profit-making schemes in place with local shops and garages before the day that you sell your car to them.
The scrapyard will often dismantle cars, before transporting them to their storage and dismantling facilities around the nation. The scrapyard will be looking for vehicles that are high in metal, like those with an aluminium chassis. It is also more likely to accept most vehicles if it’s clean and free from oil leaks.
