Abandoned Vehicles Advice
It is illegal to abandon a vehicle on the street in the UK. Removing abandoned cars that are blocking highways costs local authorities a fortune, and public areas can become ugly when scrap cars have been left behind.
Criminals also target abandoned cars, stealing used car parts and property from them and using identification numbers and numberplates as part of their illegal activities. You could find yourself in trouble if this happens to your car - the police will want to speak to you as you will still be legally responsible for the vehicle and its registration details.
If you're considering abandoning a vehicle, we at Metro Salvage would advise you to sell the car for scrap instead. We will pay you in cash for your scrap car and aim to collect it as quickly as possible, usually in under three days.
When we salvage a car, we provide its former owners with full certificates of destruction and inform the DVLA that the vehicle has been scrapped. This means you are no longer legally responsible for it.
There is never any excuse to abandon a car - simply sell the scrap vehicle to us! We will pick up the car at a time that suits you and will recycle it at one of our dedicated scrap car yards. Get in touch today to sell a car for scrap or to speak to one of our experts!
