Scrap My Car Basingstoke

The biggest problem most people face when scrapping a car is actually getting it to an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) without incurring huge delivery or collection fees. At Scrap My Car, we are committed to offering our customers only the best service and will arrange for the collection of your scrap vehicle COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE in Basingstoke.

We can usually arrange to have vehicles collected within 24 to 48 hours and at a time that is convenient to you.

All of our prices are guaranteed and there are no hidden charges or fees. We aim to be as transparent as possible in our service and pricing, and the quote that you receive on-screen will be the amount we pay you for your unwanted car. If you're happy with the figure then go ahead and accept our offer to begin the process of turning your unwanted car into useful money.

Since the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, cash is no longer a legal payment method. We therefore pay by bank transfer following collection of the vehicle. Simply give your details to the receptionist or the driver. We guarantee you will receive payment next working day into your nominated bank account. More Information: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2013/10/enacted

There are many different websites and companies offering prices and it is well known that not all prices offered for scrap cars are guaranteed. If you have been offered a better price, you should be mindful that this is often because the collector will negotiate the actual payment on your driveway or at the roadside on the collection day.Usually this will be less than that publicised. We do not act in this way – if the conditions are met your price is guaranteed

After collection your vehicle will be taken to an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF). Your car will then be de-registered on-line direct with the DVLA and a Certificate of Destruction (COD) should be issued via email, usually within 7 days.

Once the car has been successfully recycled, you will be issued with a Certificate of Destruction (CoD). This in essential which is essential as it proves that your vehicle has been disposed of by a licensed ATF - as only those with access to the DVLA system can produce a genuine CoD for your vehicle, and it confirms that you no longer hold any legal responsibility for the car which ultimately protects you should it ever be linked to criminal activity in the future.

You can cancel your car insurance as soon as the car has been collected. If you cancel your insurance before the car is collected, then it is illegal for you to use it on the public highway.

You can possibly get a refund for any outstanding car tax by returning the yellow section of the V5C to the DVLA. More Information: https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-refund.

We do not sell car parts.

Overview

Basingstoke is the largest town in the administrative county of Hampshire (Southampton and Portsmouth are now unitary authorities in their own right, and Winchester is a city). It is situated in south central England, and lies across a valley at the source of the River Loddon. It is located 30 miles (48 km) northeast of Southampton, 48 miles (77 km) southwest of London, and 19 miles (31 km) northeast of the county town and former capital Winchester. According to the 2016 population estimate the town had a population of 113,776.[d] It is part of the borough of Basingstoke and Deane and part of the parliamentary constituency of Basingstoke. Basingstoke is often nicknamed "Doughnut City" or "Roundabout City" because of the number of large roundabouts.

Basingstoke is an old market town expanded in the mid 1960s as a result of an agreement between London County Council and Hampshire County Council. It was developed rapidly after World War II, along with various other towns in the United Kingdom, in order to accommodate part of the London 'overspill' as perceived under the Greater London Plan in 1944.[2] Basingstoke market was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and it remained a small market town until the early 1960s. At the start of World War II the population was little more than 13,000. It still has a regular market, but is now larger than Hampshire County Council's definition of a market town.[3]

Basingstoke has become an important economic centre during the second half of the 20th century, and houses the locations of the UK headquarters of De La Rue, Sun Life Financial, The Automobile Association, ST Ericsson, GAME, Motorola, Barracuda Networks, Eli Lilly and Company, FCB Halesway part of FCB, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, the leasing arm of BNP Paribas in the UK, and Sony Professional Solutions. It is also the location of the European headquarters of the TaylorMade-Adidas Golf Company. Other industries include IT, telecommunications, insurance and electronics.

  • CATHRYN FROM BRACKNELL

    I would just like to say that sometimes companies don`t get enough positive feedback from customers and so I`d like to thank you for making the process of scrapping my car easy and hassle free. The process is simple, the quote was the highest I could get from shopping around, the collection driver was pleasant and, although on a personal level I found actually letting go of my car difficult, I am really pleased that I chose scrap my car because it made the whole process a lot less stressful for me. I was also pleased to know that my car would be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. I would also like to thank you for your timely and courteous correspondence with this matter. I am likely to recommend you to my family and friends and have already done so. I just thought you would like to receive some good feedback.
