Our process for scrapping cars Pewsey

Environmentally
Friendly

Selling your old car for scrap metal is an environmentally friendly move that can also put money in your pocket – but there are some procedures that need to be followed. Williams Metal Recycling makes scrapping cars easier for you – we collect your vehicle throughout Salisbury and Swindon, take care of the paperwork for you, and give you a fair price for your old car.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW BEFORE SCRAPPING YOUR CAR

We need to know if the car to be scrapped starts and can be driven or not.

It does not matter either way as we are able to remove a car in any condition. If the car to be scrapped runs but has failed its MOT, we need to know the reason why.

Is the faulty car in one piece?

Are all the wheels attached? Are any of the tyres flat?

Access.

Is the vehicle to be scrapped parked in a place where our recovery vehicle can access it?

If the scrap car has been in an accident or is accident damaged, was it written off by your insurer?

and has it been recorded by your insurance provider as an accident damaged scrap car?

Police Involvement.

If the car has been involved in an accident, been vandalised, stolen and recovered by the police or has been involved in any other criminal activity, are the police satisfied that the scrap car can be removed and destroyed?

Q:

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED BEFORE WILLIAMS METAL RECYCLING REMOVE MY CAR?

A:

You will need the vehicle's DVLA V5 Log Book and two forms of personal ID. We will sign the yellow slip, detach it for you to also sign and send to the DVLA. We don't need it but you can leave any of the scrap vehicle's service history in the glove box. We do not need a MOT certificate.

Q:

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO DO TO MY CAR PRIOR TO REMOVAL?

A:

You don't need to clean the vehicle but please make sure you have removed all personal items including any CDs and tapes you may have left in the radio player. Please remove any rubbish from the interior and the boot of the car. We can only scrap cars; we do not take household rubbish.

Q:

HOW LONG DOES THE SCRAP CAR REMOVAL PROCESS TAKE?

A:

Depending on the location and condition of the scrap car it'll take 10-15 minutes to remove the scrap car, complete the DVLA paperwork and pay you for your old car.

Q:

THE VEHICLE TO BE SCRAPPED HAS BEEN IMPOUNDED, WILL YOU RECOVER IT?

A:

Yes, but you'll need to pay any release fees due prior to Williams Metal Recycling recovering the scrap vehicle. We can't take the car away and pay you if this has not been done.

Q:

I'VE LOST THE KEYS; WILL WILLIAMS METAL RECYCLING STILL TAKE THE CAR FOR RECYCLING?

A:

Yes, but please tell us in advance and we'll bring the tools to be able to enter your car prior to removal from Swindon, Salisbury or surrounding locations.

WILL WILLIAMS METAL RECYCLING DO ALL THE DVLA PAPERWORK FOR MY SCRAP CAR?

Yes, Williams Metal Recycling are an Authorised Treatment Facility and we will de-register the scrap car for you to make the process simple and hassle-free. Our driver will fill out the yellow slip with our details, you will then need to sign it and send it to the DVLA. They will in turn send you confirmation that the scrap car is no longer your responsibility.

Q:

CAN I GET MONEY BACK ON MY VEHICLE ROAD TAX?

A:

Yes, you need to declare your scrap car as off road with DVLA, you need to fill in a SORN document and send that back with the tax disc. DVLA will send you a refund for the remaining tax left on the tax disc.
