Many of our Dagenham clients tell us that they were initially worried about using a “cash for my car” service due to it being their first time. But there’s really nothing to worry about! To reassure you of how simple the process is, we’ve answered some questions we commonly receive from first-timers.
HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO GET FOR MY SCRAP CAR?
The amount our cash for my car company pays for any given scrap car depends on a number of factors. Chiefly, the size of the vehicle and its condition. If it’s more or less in one piece and relatively sizable, you’ll likely get a good sum for it, as we will be able to recover more recyclable material during the de-pollution and scrapping processes.
DO I NEED TO INFORM THE DVLA THAT MY CAR HAS BEEN SCRAPPED?
Typically, you would. But as we are officially registered with the DVLA, we are able to fill out all relevant forms on your behalf. This is ultimately to save you time and effort, and to ensure that a Certificate of Destruction is posted to your Dagenham home within 7-days of your car being scrapped.
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD BE AWARE OF BEFORE CALLING YOU?
It’s worth considering what method of payment you will require: bank transfer, cashier’s cheque or PayPal. Scrap car companies are not legally allowed to pay for vehicles in cash, under the Scrap Dealers Act. Whichever of the aforementioned permitted payment methods you choose, we will be sure to pay you promptly. It’s really just a matter of personal preference!
