Top Things You Need To Scrap A Car

Scrapping your car with Scrap Local is easy! All you need is:

  • Valid Photo ID
  • Keys to your vehicle

The collection agent who comes to remove your vehicle should fill out and return to you section 4 or 9 from your V5C. You will need this section to contact DVLA about scrapping your vehicle.

However, this document is not necessary to scrap your car with Scrap Local!

If you’re looking to scrap your car without having to worry about any paperwork, then feel free to submit a scrap car enquiry to us.

  • Name and address of the ATF your vehicle is being taken to
