Scrap My Car Reading
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 Reading.
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.
Reading is a large historic university and minster town in Berkshire, England, of which it is now the county town. It is in the Thames Valley at the confluence of the River Thames and River Kennet, and on both the Great Western Main Line railway and the M4 motorway. Reading is 70 miles (110 km) east of Bristol, 24 miles (39 km) south of Oxford, 40 miles (64 km) west of London, 14 miles (23 km) north of Basingstoke, 12 miles (19 km) south-west of Maidenhead and 15 miles (24 km) east of Newbury as the crow flies.
The first evidence for Reading as a town dates from the 8th century. It was an important trading and ecclesiastical centre in the medieval period, as the site of Reading Abbey, one of the largest and richest monasteries of medieval England with strong royal connections, of which the 12th-century abbey gateway and significant ancient ruins remain. By 1525, Reading was the largest town in Berkshire, and tax returns show that Reading was the 10th largest town in England when measured by taxable wealth. The medieval town was seriously affected by the English Civil War, with a major siege and loss of trade, and played a pivotal role in the Revolution of 1688, with that revolution's only significant military action fought on the streets of the town. The 18th century saw the beginning of a major iron works in the town and the growth of the brewing trade for which Reading was to become famous. The 19th century saw the coming of the Great Western Railway and the development of the town's brewing, baking and seed growing businesses. During that period, the town grew rapidly as a manufacturing centre.
