How to Scrap a Van

Van scrapping with Scrap Cars For Cash couldn’t be easier, and in fact all we need to get you started is your van’s registration number and your postcode. From there we can provide you with competitive prices from across the country, giving you the opportunity to pick the best deal. Having chosen your best quote, a collection will then be arranged, all of which is included as part of our service. One of our buyers will come out to collect your van on a mutually convenient date from wherever suits you, whether that’s your driveway, a garage or somewhere else.

How to Salvage a Van

When using Scrap Cars For Cash, scrapping a van and salvaging a van are very similar journey’s from the customer’s perspective. The only difference is that this time around we ask for a few more details on the condition of your van. Salvage vehicles, as opposed to scrap vehicles, still have usable components, and get broken down and stripped of all of these parts before they are finally sent to the crusher, unlike scrap cars that head there directly. The process of choosing your quote and arranging collections remain identical.

Van Scrappage FAQs

What do I need to be able to scrap my van?

Once you have accepted a quote and confirmed a collection time and place, you’ll need to make sure you are fully prepared. Ensure the following items are ready and available for when your collection takes place:

  • Personal identification
  • V5C Vehicle Log Book

Do I have to notify the DVLA if I scrap my van?

Yes, whether you’re scrapping a car or scrapping a van, it’s essential that you let the DVLA know. Failing to let them know can result in a hefty fine. You can notify the DVLA online or you can do so by post.

Can I scrap a van without a logbook?

The process of scrapping your van without its V5C logbook isn’t much different from scrapping a van that has the document. The process may take a little longer to complete as we’ll ask you more questions. Our sales and collection teams will be on hand to help you. It will also be easier to inform the DVLA if you have the V5C logbook.

How much is a scrap van worth?

The short answer is that it depends. The price of scrap metal can vary from one day to the next. Rest assured, we track the value of scrap metal closely to make sure that you’re being offered the correct amount for what your van is worth.

Big vans are typically worth more than small vans. This is due to the scrap value of a vehicle being mainly calculated by its weight. The make and model of your van also impacts the value. The price your van would sell for in a working condition is partially reflected in the value for selling it as scrap.

Why should I scrap my van?

Every van, like any vehicle, has a shelf life. It’s likely that you would earn more by selling your van to a private buyer, but this requires work on your part and there’s no knowing how long the process may take. You should scrap your van if you want rid of it as quickly as possible, with as little effort as possible. Scrapping your van with us ensures you receive a fair, market-rate value for your van and we will take care of the paperwork and collection for you.
