Frequently Asked Questions

What ID should I bring?

A photo card driving licence is perfect, as this has your photo and your address. Please note, the address must be current and correct. If you do not have this, another photo ID such as a membership card or passport is fine, but you must also have a recent (within three months) utility bill, bank statement or HMRC letter.

Can I use my passport as ID?

Yes, but only for the photo, as passports do not contain your address. You will also need to bring some proof of address if you bring your passport as ID.

Do I need to bring anything else with me?

Yes, you will need to bring a high visibility vest for your own safety and so you can be seen at all times on site.

Do you pay cash?

No, since 2013 it is illegal to buy scrap metal for cash. We do same-day bank transfer directly into your bank account.

What Bank Details do I have to leave?

We need the name on the account, sort code and account number.

What if I don’t bring my ID?

You will be unable to leave your metal with us.

What if I don’t have my bank details?

You can still leave your metal here, and call us with your bank details.

When will the money go into my account?

We aim for money to go into your bank within a couple of hours. It is always transferred by 6pm the same day, unless there is a problem with the bank.

Do I need the logbook if I’m scrapping a vehicle?

No - we are linked directly to the DVLA and we will issue you with a Certificate Of Destruction from the DVLA before you leave.

Do you collect vehicles or scrap from the side of the road?

No, we are not a recovery company. We can collect if it is outside your home only.

Are you open Bank Holidays?

No, we are closed on all UK Bank Holidays.

Do I need an account with you?


Do you help offload my scrap?

Yes, our staff are more than happy to help you.

Why am I charged to leave my tyres at your site?

We have to pay to dispose of these, so the cost is passed directly to the customer.
