What is a "cashless" method of payment?
Our agents use various methods to make payment. These include...

  • Cheque.
  • BACs Transfer (Bank Transfer).
  • Payment direct to your Debit / Credit card.
  • Prepaid Debit / Credit card.
  • Paypal.

Please discuss which methods are available to you when our agent calls.

Does the legislation cover the whole of the UK?
The legislation currently covers England and Wales. Our agents in Scotland have voluntary decided to adopt the new legislation in preparation of it becoming law. Our agents in Northern Ireland are still paying cash.

Will I be able to get cash from other companies?
No. If any company offers to collect and pay cash then they are doing this illegally. By getting your vehicle collected by a company that is not legally licensed you will not get a Certificate of Destruction guaranteeing the vehicle is to be scrapped. If your vehicle is then sold on you could be liable to speeding fines / parking tickets that occurred after you got rid of the vehicle.

Back to top

Is there any exceptions to the rule?
If the vehicle is to be repaired and not to be scrapped then the agent can pay cash. This option is only available where...

  • Part of the agents business is the repair and sale of vehicles.
  • The vehicle is in a repairable condition.
  • The vehicle has a valid MOT certificate.

No Certificate of Destruction will be issued.

To Scrap Your Car, Complete This Form.

Raw2K�s operations are focused upon lowering our waste and increasing recycling, therefore providing us with a controlled and reduced sustainability impact wherever possible. A scrap car is much greener than an abandoned car and the owner is paid cash for scrapping their car.

Raw2K�s fully licensed Sites store all recovered cars / vehicles on an "Impermeable surface" this means a surface or pavement constructed and maintained to a standard sufficient to prevent the transmission of liquids beyond the pavement surface.

The ELV Directive requires the provision of: appropriate storage, including impermeable storage for oil contaminated spare parts some spare parts, e.g. engines, require oil in order to preserve working surfaces. Such parts shall be appropriately segregated and stored in or on containers that are secured such that oil cannot escape from them. Oily parts shall be stored on an area with an impermeable surface and a sealed drainage system.

The ELV Directive requires: removal and separate collection and storage of fuel, motor oil, transmission oil, gearbox oil, hydraulic oil, cooling liquids, antifreeze, brake fluids, air-conditioning system fluids and any other fluid contained in the ELV, unless they are necessary for the re-use of the parts concerned, and appropriate storage tanks for the segregated storage of ELV fluids; fuel, motor oil, gearbox oil, transmission oil, hydraulic oil, cooling liquids, antifreeze, brake fluids, battery acids, air-conditioning system fluids and any other fluid contained in the ELV.

Airbags, Tyres, Catalysts, Glass and Non Ferrous Metals shall all be removed and disposed of inline with the ELV Directive.

* We always strive to provide you with the best price and scrap car service, however on occasion due to temporary over supply and scrap metal prices we cannot always provide this service in your area.
