If you have an ELV (End of Live Vehicle) or aren’t sure if your car is worth fixing, give us a call to find out how much we could offer for your scrap car. We offer competitive rates for scrap vehicles with additional benefits for catalytic convertors and alloy wheels.

We can de-pollute an average ELV (End of Live Vehicle) in just 15 minutes. We have the capacity to depollute up to 140 ELV¹s per day, and our equipment and service exceeds all regulatory requirements and effective compliance procedures.

Authorised Automotive Treatment Facility

All Scrap Vehicles have to be correctly disposed of and failure to do so could result in a fine for the last registered owner. Which is why it makes sense to choose an authorised Automotive Treatment Facility such as A1.

ATF permits are only granted through Acceptable Site Standards and an undertaking of the proper and correct ELV Treatment Process ­ all legislation, authority and standards are currently excelled by Wokingham Metal Recycling.

We also contact the DVLA to inform them of the scrapping of your vehicle and offer competitive prices for all scrap cars. Scrapping you vehicle has never been easier!
