Scrap Cars

Scrap My Car

Safely, legally, environmentally, AND we will pay for it too!

As an authorised treatment facility, Singleton’s operate to the End of Life Vehicles Regulations 2003.

They will process your log book, notify the DVLA and issue you a certificate of destruction. Simple!

If you have a car that your need to scrap, bring it along to Singleton’s Scrap Metal along with the registration document (V5 log book) and we’ll do the rest.

Don’t risk it: Not only do we give you a good price for your scrap car, we do all the paperwork and give you complete peace of mind that the job has been done correctly.

Please note that we do not sell car parts.

Recycling your scrap car

Leave your scrap car with us and we will remove the tyres, all fluids and the battery.

Once all pollutants have been removed from your vehicle it will then be scrapped and crushed with all the metal being recycled.

This scrap car service can only be carried out by an authorised treatment facility (ATF) who have all the equipment to comply with the 2003 regulations – like us!


Keeping your scrap car’s number plate

If you wish to retain your scrap car’s licence plate number you’ll need to do this beforeĀ you scrap your car.

Details of what yo do can be found on the personalised number plate page of the website.


Certificate of Destruction when you scrap a car

The End-of-Life Vehicles Regulations 2003 require that if you want to scrap a car you may only do so at an authorised treatment facility (ATF).

An ATF will issue you a Certificate of Destruction (CoD). This document terminates your responsibility as the registered keeper of the vehicle. Without this certificate you will still be responsible for the vehicle and for payment of a road fund licence.

If your scrap car is a passenger-carrying or light goods vehicle up to 3,500kg you will be issued a Certificate of Destruction immediately. You should retain your scrap car’s Certificate of Destruction as a duplicate cannot be issued.


End of Life Vehicles Regulations

The End of Life Vehicles (ELV) Regulation 2003 aims to reduce the amount of waste from scrap vehicles (cars and vans). It imposed strict environmental standards for Authorised Treatment Facilities, made provision for the free disposal of scrap cars and introduced a system for issuing Certificates of Destruction (CoD).

Further information on disposing of cars for scrap can be found on the Scrapping your Vehicle page of the website.

The Environment Agency website contains details of Authorised Treatment Facilities.
