When your vehicle costs more to repair than to replace or is too damaged to be fixed, it’s probably time to arrange for it to be scrapped. Make the decision early and you’ll avoid the extra expense of next year’s road tax and the stress of trying to arrange scrap collection quickly.
FirstLine Recovery offer a full, transparent and well documented scrap vehicle collection service throughout London, Surrey, Sussex, Essex and Kent. Our fleet is equipped to transport most vehicles, including non-runners, accident damaged vehicles and larger vehicles such as motorhomes and buses.
Failure to correctly dispose of a car that has reached the end of its life can be expensive. It’s important to arrange for proper disposal to make sure you adhere to current legislation and don’t end up liable for future speeding tickets, parking fines or abandoned vehicle charges.
Legally cars that are sent to be scrapped must be sent to an Authorised Treatment Facility to make sure disposal doesn’t damage the environment. The facility will recycle those parts it can and safely dispose of toxic or otherwise harmful waste. You must also be provided with a Certificate of Destruction once the vehicle has been destroyed.
Contact our efficient office team, who are continuously trained and kept up to date with latest legislation. They will guide you through the scrap process, help you to collect all required documentation and make sure it is sent to the right place. Our collections are quick, and in cases where road tax is due soon or the vehicle is causing obstructions or other problems collection will be expedited. We’re open 24 hours a day, every day, so you can contact us and arrange collection at a time that suits you. Our collection service is ideal for non-runners, if you’re not insured to drive the car, where the car has failed MOT or if you simply don’t have the time to take the car to be scrapped.
