Cash for Scrap Cars
Nowadays, UK law requires registered car scrap dealers to pay customers by bank cheque or money transfer. In other words, the outdated practice of paying cash for scrap vehicles no longer exists; in fact, it breaks the law. In 2013, new legislation prevented car thieves from stealing vehicles and scrapping them for immediate cash.
Interestingly, the introduction of secure measures benefited above-board motorists looking to scrap a car in Colchester and East Anglia, as scrap values rose slightly.
