If you’re looking to scrap your car and have already scoured the internet in search of the best price, there’s no shortage of comparison sites for you to choose from. Many of these companies don’t scrap the vehicles themselves, they merely pass them on to scrap metal companies like ourselves. The main disadvantage of this from a consumer perspective is that it’ll typically mean you get a lower price because comparison websites will take a percentage in order for them to make a profit. This isn’t the case when you deal directly with Ace Breakers – We’re not middlemen and yes, we do actually crush and scrap your car at our recycling facility on the borders of Kent and south east London. Because of this, we’re generally able to provide higher quotes than most of our competitors.
However, although we always try to monitor and adjust our prices to reflect current market values, occasionally the odd make or model can slip through the net and you’ll sometimes get a slightly higher price from another website. If this happens to you, the good news is that we may still be able to beat the quote you’ve just received.
What do I need to do to get a better price?
If this happens and you receive a quote that’s higher than the one our free online automated quote system has provided, all you need to do is call or email us and we’ll go that extra mile to give you the best possible price for your car (excuse the terrible car pun!). To benefit from our ‘Price Pledge’, all you need to do to find out if your car is worth more is to provide us with some proof. This can be a screenshot of the quote or even just the name of the website the quote came from, together with the make, age and model of your vehicle. Alternatively, if the website has an instant quote system similar to ours, just give us your VRN (vehicle registration number) and your postcode so that we can check and verify the price.
For starters, it’ll only take a moment to do and you may well end up getting quite a few extra pounds for only a few minutes’ work. Secondly, we’ve been in business since 1978 so you’ll also benefit from our proven track record of customer service. We have a large number of genuine Google and Facebook reviews from satisfied customers who can testify to the high level of service we provide. If you read them, you’ll see we’re prompt and reliable, friendly and helpful and we sort out all payments quickly with no quibbles and no fuss. We’ll also take care of all the paperwork and are happy to answer any questions you have.

By all means, shop around for the best price – and if it didn’t come from us, just let us know to find out if we can beat it.
