In business since 1978
We started trading back in 1978 in Kent as a car and van scrapyard. Nowadays, we specialise in scrapping cars and vans but no longer sell car parts. However, we do still sell part-worn tyres and car batteries.
We’re not a scrap car agency and we’re not middlemen, you deal with us directly when scrapping your car. As such, we’re able to pay the best price for your scrap car or van. Why not fill out the free, instant online car scrappage form at the top of the page and see for yourself?

Scrap My Car Kent & SE London – Scrap Car Collection
All prices 100% guaranteed
We’re a local scrap metal merchant and Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) located in Gravesend, Kent. We specialise in scrap vehicle recovery throughout Kent and the surrounding areas including all of South East London. We also buy and sell ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
Most importantly, we deal with our clients direct, allowing us to cut out the middle man and provide them with an accurate price quote that’s usually higher than they’d get from similar scrap car comparison websites. What’s more, we don’t just scrap cars, we also accept vans at our Kent metal recycling facility.
Cut out the middleman and deal direct
Many of the larger scrap my car agencies that you’ll find on the internet act as middlemen and will provide a quote for your vehicle but won’t actually deal with the collection and scrapping of your car directly. Instead, this part of the process is handed over to companies such as ourselves, meaning that you’ll probably get a lower price from them once they’ve deducted their profit margin. If you deal with a scrap car company directly, you’ll most likely get the best price for your scrap car.
As you’re dealing with us direct, it’s important to us that you’re 100% satisfied with the service we provide. Due to the constantly fluctuating price of scrap metal around the world, our quotes are based on completed car prices and are valid for 48hours only. For more information on how to scrap your car please visit our scrap metal page or get in touch with us for free advice.
Do you charge for scrap car collection in Kent?
All companies will factor the cost of collecting your scrap car into the price they quote you. With this in mind, we have a sliding scale for the amount we charge to collect the vehicle. The closer you are to our Kent scrapyard, the lower the price charged. Our free, online scrap car quote system automatically factors in the cost of collection based on the postcode you enter. If we collect from your area of Kent or South East London, you can see the difference in the price for collection compared to the price should you choose to deliver your scrap car to our Kent scrapyard yourself instead.
How do you calculate the scrappage price?
Many companies will simply provide a car scrappage quote based on the weight of the vehicle in kilograms. This calculation is made by using the make and model of your car (determined by the vehicle’s registration number). We do things slightly differently; virtually all the prices returned by our scrap my car quote generator are based not just on weight, but on the value of some of the car’s components. For example, if your car has a higher value catalytic converter, we’ll offer you a better price compared to simply pricing it based on its weight alone. Because of this, we can generally provide the best price to the client when they decide to scrap their car.
Can I scrap my car for cash in Kent?
Due to changes in legislation, the law doesn’t allow any scrap metal company to pay you directly in cash for your scrap car in Kent. This applies to ALL scrap car companies, not just us. However, we can provide immediate payment in the form of a cheque or bank transfer instead. For more information, read the ‘Payment’ section of our FAQs page or read the Scrap Metal Dealers Act directly for more information.
Are you a car breakers or Kent scrap yard?
Yes and no. Although you may find us listed on other sites relevant to the DA postcode area (e.g. Bexley Car Breakers) we no longer sell all car parts although we do still sell part-worn tyres and used car batteries. Nowadays, we deal predominantly with scrap metal and scrap cars, which we collect, depollute, crush and recycle at our Kent facility.
