How to scrap your car in Gillingham

  1. Phone us to arrange a time for the collection of your scrap car and to provide us with as much information on the car as possible.
  2. We collect the vehicle and the logbook at the allotted time. Alternatively, you can send the logbook to us before hand. (Even if you don't have the logbook for the vehicle we will still be able to tow away the scrap car but you will need to let us know before we take the vehicle and you will need to write to the DVLA, informing them of your intention to scrap the car.)
  3. We provide you with an intent of destruction certificate and give you back section 9 of the logbook.
  4. You mail the section 9 to the DVLA.
  5. We mail the remainder of the logbook to the DVLA, make a SORN (let them know that the car is off the road) and tell them that the vehicle can now be de-registered.
  6. Within about 4 to 6 weeks you should be notified by the DVLA.

What do we do once we've taken away your scrap car?

After we have towed away your scrap car we first remove any parts that may be reused in some way, this commonly includes things such as the tyres and the battery. Then we remove the catalytic converter and other parts which can be recycled. Any fuel remaining in the fuel talk is removed, any hazardous parts are also removed from your scrap car. Finally, the vehicle is ready to be crushed.
