Once you have accepted the quote for your car, we can collect it from you - scrap car collection is free! One of our team will contact you by email or phone to arrange an ideal collection time. We'll do our best to collect at your chosen time, and we collect most cars within just two working days.

Our collection times are usually Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm and Saturday's 8am till noon. If this doesn't work for you, do let us know and we'll do our best to make the timing work.
