Scrapping a car could be the perfect start to your New Year, giving you money you can put towards a new vehicle for 2023 and beyond.
At J Davidson Scrap we aim to offer the best scrap car prices in the north-west, and you can get a quick estimate of how much your scrap car is worth by filling in our instant online quote form.
We’ll take care of everything – we can collect your vehicle if it’s a non-runner, sort out the paperwork to prove it’s been scrapped, and if you have the log book we can even liaise with the DVLA so that they know it’s been destroyed too.
Why is scrapping a car a good idea?
There are plenty of reasons why scrapping a car is a good way to start the new year…
A reliable set of wheels for winter
If your current car won’t start on a frosty morning, or you have trouble keeping the battery charged, then putting your scrap car money towards a more reliable replacement could be the best way to start 2023.
Save on fuel costs in the long run
There’s no time like the present to start saving money on fuel economy, and this is one area where many modern vehicles significantly outperform their older equivalents. Saving pounds at the pump will all add up and, on top of your scrap car money, could eventually cover the cost of your new car.
Time to try an electric car?
Hybrids and battery electric vehicles are well established in the mainstream market now, with plenty of charging infrastructure around when you need it. Is it time to think about scrapping a car and replacing it with one that doesn’t use petrol or diesel at all?
How to scrap a car
If you’ve never scrapped a car before, don’t worry, it’s not difficult. To start, just enter the vehicle’s details on our website and we’ll give you a quick quote based on our best prices for scrap cars in the current market.
This is based on a few different factors including the make and model of the car, and the likely value of the recyclable materials contained in its bodywork.
We will carefully dismantle your scrap vehicle, dispose of any hazardous materials like hydraulic fluids, and recycle the rest to avoid sending it to landfill sites.

If you have an old car to scrap there’s no need to wait – contact us today and we can get the ball rolling, and can arrange to collect your car and log book from your home or roadside if necessary.
As always, remember if you have personalised number plates, you must transfer them away from the vehicle BEFORE you scrap it, or the number will be scrapped along with the car and you’ll lose the right to use it on your next vehicle.
