How We Calculate Your Scrap Car Price PRICE

WE OFFER SOME OF THE BEST PRICES FOR SCRAP CARS

Scrap car prices are quoted using a vehicle database lookup and take into account a number of elements to enable us to accurately price your scrap car and offer a great price.

Why Don’t I Get Cash in My Hand for My Scrapped Car?

:(

We would love to give you cash for your scrap car or van but it is illegal. Any so called “scrap dealer” offering you cash is not genuine so be aware. Due to the Government ban on paying for scrap with cash, we usually wire the money to your bank account when we come to collect your scrap car. We have now also joined Bread4Scrap scheme which allows us to pay you for your scrap with a prepaid mastercard.

Three cars collected (one of which had not moved for 12 years) in one swoop. Excellent service both from the office/admin and the lorry pick up. Really pleased to have this service and have it done so effortlessly… got a better price for the cars than quoted elsewhere too.A great team who kept me informed via WhatsApp at every stage - pick up arrangements, banking details, collection completed etc.Well done Assington Autos!

Got my car picked up today - was stationary for ages and seemed like it wasn’t going to even start. The two guys that came to collect it were really experienced and so helpful, managed to load it up in no time. I honestly thought getting rid of it would now be so much hassle, they definitely proved me wrong! Great service, highly recommended!Also, the receptionist lady I spoke to was so helpful (and most likely advice saved me a £1000 fine).

Assington autos collected my car through scrap car comparison. I phoned them to arrange collection the lady explained to me the process and took my bank details for payment into my account. I sent a copy of ID. The driver telephoned me on the day of collection to say he was going to be 20 minutes. He turned up filled in the log book and took the car. Payment was in my account by that evening. It was a nice and easy process and staff were helpful.

Very friendly and professional service - highly recommend.I was a little worried about the whole process, as I haven't done this before, but the customer service lady was so helpful & guided me through everything I needed to know.Communication was excellent and very reassuring.The guy who collected was also friendly and told me exactly what I needed to do next. Money cleared exactly as promised - I needn't have worried at all :) wish I had more cars to scrap!

Great company, was offered a quote on a compare site for my car and then Assington called me the next day to arrange a pick up for it. They sorted a day out for me when I was available and then man who collected my car was great and did everything he needed to do. To top it off I was paid the same day with the full amount I was quoted for. Definitely recommend using this company for scrapping your car

We have scrapped three cars in two years (don't ask - blame the kids!) and Assington are by far the best of the three companies. Both other firms gave a price but tried to argue it down when they arrived, hoping that we would just accept the odd £50 less as they were at our door and ready to load. Assington didn't do that. They also told us when they would come, when we would be paid, confirmed they had received the car back at their yard and then sent a text to confirm payment had been sent. Perfect service - shame we have no more cars to scrap!

We sold our car to Assington Autos for breaking/scrap. Their communication was absolutely brilliant, everything was completely transparent and well explained. They also offered us the highest price for scrap, when compared to others. The collection was booked and carried out in a really good time frame, and I would recommend them for this service. Big shout out to Tara, who I spoke with to make the arrangements and who handled the admin side, you’re doing a great job and you’re a credit to Assington Autos.

What a pain free experience!Was really reluctant to get rid of the car despite knowing it would never go on the road again. When I originally got the quote online I was stunned at how much I was going to get and waited for the callback to be knocked down in price. I wasn’t!Got the call at 8.05am on the day we’d agreed, telling me they’d be there between 15 and 20 minutes and they were spot on.When the driver turned up, the car wouldn’t start so I thought, great how’s this going to work? But of course, there was a battery charger in the cab of the lorry! The driver was COVID safe, really friendly and funny but at the same time, very professional. The office staff were of the same standard. The money went in as promised on the same day.Would highly recommend them.

I even didn't have to stay in & left my car key in an arranged place so car could be picked up while I was at work. I feel that they gave me a good price for my car & paid the price quoted in the text that was sent. Money was paid direct to my bank account. My experience has been a good one and I would use this company again & recommend.
