1. Get appropriate documentation
It’s important to gather the necessary documents before you scrap your vehicle. Different documents are essential, while others are more desirable. You’ll need to ensure you have proof of identification and address, such as a passport or driving license.
The vehicle registration document or V5C is the vehicle logbook this is the most important document needed for scrapping your car. It proves the car you are about to sell for scrap belongs to you and stops any unauthorised sales.
2. Remove your personal belongings
Ensure you’ve removed any personal items such as chargers, sunglasses and CDs. Also, make sure any tools and gadgets such as Sat Navs and Dash Cams. Any items that are left in the vehicle may not be retrievable once collected so take extra care when preparing your motor.
3. Remove the car licence plate
If you wish to keep your number plate, whether it’s personalised or not, then you will need to get in touch with the DVLA to organise transferring the number plate over to another vehicle, or a Retention Document to hold the number plate.
