Here at Scrap Cars For Cash, we’re always asked how we get the figures that we quote to our customers and if there is anything that can be done to get a little more out of their quote. The absolute truth is that the price we quote you is the very best offer that we can get for you, and we have already explored every avenue to get there.
Whether it’s a scrap car or a van, our team of experts look up and down the country through our vast network of specialist scrap and salvage dealers making sure that we are getting the absolute best value deal for you.
How are scrap van values calculated?
The value of a van as scrap is intrinsically linked to its weight. The heavier a van is, the more metal there is to be taken from it, meaning it is worth more to the scrap dealer working on it. The more it’s worth to them, the more they’ll be willing to pay you to take it off your hands. Simple, right?
Not quite! While weight is the key parameter when it comes to pricing up your scrap or salvage van, the make and model will be taken into account, as well as its age, mileage and general condition. Salvage vans will be stripped of any of their reusable parts before they’re confined to the crusher, so getting an idea of the condition of those parts will have an effect on how much our buyers are willing to offer you.
As mentioned earlier, Scrap Cars For Cash monitors the price of scrap metal nationwide every day, and with our expert team knowing exactly what to look for and how to get the best quote possible for you, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’ll be getting the very highest price available – guaranteed.
How do I know how much my van will be worth?
You might think, having read the above, that it will take a lot of back and forth and going through minute details before you are able to know how much your van is worth as scrap or salvage, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. By using our quick and easy online system you’ll be provided with your best price in just a matter of moments. A member of the team will then be in touch to iron out any additional details and provide you with a final quote, guaranteed for 24 hours. From there, should you accept the offer, our advisors will begin to make arrangements between yourself and the buyer to find a mutually agreeable time to collect your vehicle, and that’s that! Easy!
Where and when will my van be collected?
Thanks to our nationwide network of scrap and salvage buyers, we are able to provide a free collection service no matter where you are in the country. We will also arrange for the collection to be carried out at a mutually convenient time for you and the buyer, and the process is usually completed within a couple of days.
How do I get paid?
You will receive your quoted payment, subject to inspection, upon collection of your van. If the collection agent notices some major discrepancies between what was described and the vehicle they are picking up then they may renegotiate a price, but as long as you have been honest from the outset, there will be no negotiations necessary. Payment will be made by either electronic bank transfer or business cheque, in line with the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013. Cash payment is not available.
