At J Davidson Scrap we run a fully up to date Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) for the disposal of scrap cars – and this means you can scrap your car faster when you bring it to us.
Because we are a DVLA-authorised ATF, we have a direct link with the DVLA. That means when you scrap a car in the north-west with J Davidson‘s Scrap, we can give you all of the documentation you need to prove that it has been destroyed.
This includes an on-the-spot certificate of destruction that removes any future liability for the vehicle and means you can then cancel your car insurance and recover any excess insurance premiums and road tax you have already paid.
A better way to scrap a car in Greater Manchester
From our scrap metal recycling plant in Altrincham, we can take delivery of vehicles from across Greater Manchester, or come out to collect them from properties and roadsides across the north-west if required.
We aim to offer a better way to scrap a car in Greater Manchester than you will get elsewhere, with modern facilities to safely dismantle the vehicle, separate out any recyclable metal parts and also retrieve any potentially dangerous fluids and acids for safe disposal.
Our scrap metal processing plant can handle both ferrous metal (i.e. steel) and non-ferrous metals such as copper, aluminium and lead, so everything can be recycled for future use to the greatest extent possible.
What else is on-site?
Come down to J Davidson Scrap Metal Processors in Altrincham and you’ll find it is by no means a junkyard for scrap cars – in fact it’s a £2.5 million purpose-built site that contains everything we need to collect and process scrap metal to an incredibly high standard.
Across two acres of land we have heavy plant including cranes and other lifting equipment, as well as our 1,000 tonne shearer/baler, a truly epic piece of kit that has taken our total processing capacity to around 1,500 tonnes of scrap metal per week.
You’ll also see our infamous fleet of HGVs, salvage trucks and recovery vehicles parked up, if they’re not out on a job, as we have an on-site garage for around 20 vehicles including our famous airbrushed film, TV and videogame inspired trucks.
