How and when will I be paid for my car?
Under The Scrap Metal Dealer's Act 2013, cash payments for scrap cars are not permitted. The only permitted forms of payment are non-negotiable cheque or bank transfer. The recycling centre's payment offerings will be shown when you accept the quote online. You can supply your bank details online safely. Our website is secure - look out for a small padlock symbol in the address bar and note that our web address begins with https:// (the s stands for 'secure'). If you do not wish to supply your bank details online, you can provide your details to the recycling centre when they call you to book the collection
Do I need to contact DVLA when I sell or scrap my car?
Yes, it is your legal responsibility to inform DVLA that you are no longer the owner/keeper of the vehicle. The recycling centre will complete their details on Section 9 of the V5C and hand this back to you. This should be immediately posted to DVLA. Alternatively you can notify DVLA online by visiting DVLA website. If you do not have a V5C, you should send a letter to DVLA to inform them of the transfer of ownership as soon as the vehicle has been handed over to the recycling centre. You are transferring the ownership to the recycling centre and it is their business details that should be supplied to DVLA. You are NOT transferring the vehicle to Motorwise.
