Scrap your car with CarTakeBack

COVID-19 Suspension of Service

In line with the New Zealand Government’s decision to move into Alert Level 4 from 25th March 2020, and in an effort to protect our customers and staff, all CarTakeBack services have been temporarily suspended until further notice. We will resume our activities when it is safe to do so. The CarTakeBack Team are all working from home and are still available by phone and email. You can still get a quote for your car and any that are accepted will be contacted when we're ready to resume our service.
