A scrap yard with lots of cars piled up

Yes, scrapping your car is totally worth it for the cash reward alone! There are so many reasons to get rid of your car, and the money you’ll get from choosing to scrap it is a great incentive.

It’s not just the money that makes selling your car for scrap worthwhile, though – there are plenty of other benefits. If you’re unsure what to do with your old or broken car, here are 4 reasons why you should opt to scrap it.


1. The money is good

Selling your car to a scrap dealer can earn you a nice little lump sum – put it towards a new car or treat yourself to whatever you want!

Here at A&L, we can give you a free, no-obligation quote that’s tailored to your specific car. Depending on the age and condition of your vehicle, you could receive as much as you would if you traded it in at a car dealership...but without all the fuss and admin that comes with that.

Even if your car is beyond repair, it will most likely still have some scrap value and we can offer you top prices for your car disposal.


2. It’s surprisingly easy to do

Scrapping your car with A&L is a simple 4-step process:

Step 1: Enter your car registration and postcode.

Step 2: Receive your free quote straight away.

Step 3: Review the details and accept your quote.

Step 4: Drop off your car or arrange a collection and we'll arrange payment.


3. It’s a quick way to get rid of your car

Life can be unpredictable, and for one reason or another, you may find yourself needing to get rid of your vehicle very quickly. You might be tempted to put your car up for sale, but this can be a long and arduous process. Choosing to sell it for scrap is much faster.

At A&L, we can provide you with a quote on the day of your request and, in some cases, can even arrange to collect it and provide payment on the same day.


4. You can do it from the comfort of your own home

Scrapping your car with A&L can be done without even leaving your house! Simply request a quote online or over the phone. Then, once you’ve accepted it, we can arrange for one of our dealers to collect your vehicle at a time that suits you. All you’ll need to do is make sure the car is emptied of all personal belongings/rubbish and provide us with the following upon our arrival:

  • Photo ID
  • Keys, locking wheel nut and security codes if you have them
  • Logbook, service history, MOT certificate and user manuals if you have them

We’ll then arrange payment on the same day and even take care of all DVLA paperwork.
