Free Scrap Car Collection

When you sell your scrap car with us, we’ll collect it from you – there’s no charge for collection. Our free scrap car collection service is the perfect option if your car isn’t working, you don’t have insurance, or if you simply don’t have the time to drop it off.

Arranging scrap car collection

Arranging collection of your scrap car is quick and easy. Our wreckers can collect your car from home, work, a garage, or wherever’s best for you. After you’ve accepted a quote for your scrap car, your local CarTakeBack wrecker will get in touch with you to sort out a convenient time and date to pick up your car. They’ll also be able to answer any questions might you have about the collection.

We’ll do our best to fit in with you and most scrap car collections are arranged within a day or two of you accepting a quote. Collections usually take place from Monday to Saturday between 7am and 7pm. But please let us know if you’re in a hurry, or you need us to collect your car outside of these hours.

On the collection day you’ll need to have a few things ready…

  • any documents you might have for the car
  • and don’t forget to remove any personal belongings and rubbish from your car

When we collect your car, we’ll help with the paperwork, and sort the payment. It couldn’t be easier!

Thank you

Awesome experience, keep up the great work... the lady on the phone and the truck driver are true assets to the team.

Easy to use

The website was easy to use and gave me more confidence than I have been getting from calling phone numbers and not getting any reply. The text also gives me confidence you are not just taking information without converting that to action.

- Michael Restieaux
