We All Buy Any Van For Top Cash In The Bank

We scrap vans for top cash in the bank – Even if your transit van is a non-runner, your VW camper is damaged, or your Mercedes sprinter has failed its MOT.

We don’t just buy scrap vans, either! If your vehicle is younger than eight years of age, we may be able to offer more than van scrap value on what is classed as a salvage car.

Specific models, such as a transit van, Mercedes Sprinter or VW camper, are more desirable to some of our car breakers – Meaning they can offer the best prices to scrap a van on many other makes and models. 

Our specialist van scrap yards will provide a competitive price, and once you’re happy, they will scrap your van – Even with no logbook or finance (if written off).

What Determines the Scrap Value of My Van?

The price you’ll get for your scrap van isn’t set in stone – several factors come into play when scrapping your commercial vehicle. Knowing these ensures you’re getting a fair offer and helps you compare quotes from different scrap yards. Consider the following:

  • Weight and Metal Content: A larger, heavier van naturally contains more scrap metal. The types of metals found in your van also matter– some, like copper, are worth more than others on the recycling market.
  • Condition and Reusable Parts: A van with major components in good working order (such as the engine, transmission, or body panels) may be more desirable to scrap yards. They can resell these parts, increasing the overall value they get from your vehicle.
  • Current Scrap Metal Prices: The scrap metal market is always changing. When demand for scrap metals is high, you’ll likely receive better prices. Keep an eye on general market trends if you’re flexible on when to scrap your van.
  • Scrap Yard Demand: Certain scrap yards specialise in specific van brands or models. If your van type matches their needs, you might receive a higher offer than from a general scrap yard.
  • Location: Scrap metal prices and scrap yard competition can vary by region. If you’re willing to travel a little further, you might find better offers outside your immediate area.
Get Your Van Ready for Scrapping: A Simple Guide

While the scrap yard will handle most of the work, taking a few simple steps beforehand makes the collection process smoother, ensures you don’t leave anything important behind, and can potentially increase the value of your van. Here’s an expanded checklist with additional considerations:

  1. Clear Out Personal Items: Start with the obvious places – glove compartment, centre console, and door pockets. Then thoroughly inspect less common hiding spots like under seats, behind sun visors, in any overhead storage, and within the spare tire compartment. Any forgotten items will likely be lost for good once your van is scrapped.
  2. Valuable Parts & Equipment: As long as the vehicle is complete an original you shouldn’t overlook removing the upgrades added accessories might be worth more if sold separately. This won’t affect the scrap value of the vehicle if it remains in a complete and original state. This applies to things like custom stereos, navigation systems, roof racks, toolboxes, or even heavy-duty seat covers. Remove them carefully before the scrap yard collects your van.
  3. Inform the DVLA: Legally, you must let the DVLA know that your van has been scrapped. Your chosen scrap yard will usually assist with completing the necessary forms, often providing you with a Certificate of Destruction for your records.
  4. Additional Preparation: Some scrap yards may have specific requirements. Ask beforehand if they prefer you to disconnect the battery, remove tires, or if there are specific guidelines for damaged vans. Communicate clearly about missing wheels or any major components that could affect the collection process.
  5. Safety First: If you’re removing parts yourself, prioritise safety. Always refer to your van’s owner’s manual for instructions and wear appropriate protective gear. If in doubt, it’s safer to leave certain parts attached to the vehicle that can be recycled by the professionals at the scrap yard.
