Sell Commercial Van and Vehicle Guide

How to sell, scrap or salvage your commercial van or vehicle

Whether you’re looking to scrap a van, taxi, refrigerated or agricultural vehicle, the process for scrapping is precisely the same as scrapping a car through our service. Once we acquire the details of your commercial van or vehicle, we will generate an estimated quote for your vehicle by contacting you either by telephone or via email. The price you will receive for your vehicle will vary upon various factors, such as; any added extras or modifications, the age of your vehicle, and the vehicle’s overall condition. Reclamet will consider these factors to see whether your vehicle is worth repairing and salvaging or whether the vehicle should be scrapped at our Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) and be depolluted before being recycled in line with governmental guidelines.

What types of commercial vehicles are scrappable?

Just about any commercial van or vehicle in any condition can be scrapped; here are some examples:

  • Old vehicle
  • MOT failure
  • Crash damaged
  • Insurance write-off
  • Broken down
  • Non-runner
  • Parts missing
  • Faulty parts
  • Insurance buybacks

The process of scrapping a commercial vehicle

The scrapping process of a commercial vehicle is completed in stages. All liquids, such as the hydraulic and battery fluid, are removed by authorised handlers in the disposal process. The tyres are then either sold on or removed, disposed or recycled. After we complete this process, we remove any salvage parts from the commercial vehicle that can be reused and sold on. Once everything dangerous has been removed and components salvaged, the vehicle is then scrapped.

How much can I get paid for my commercial van or vehicle?

As long as you have described the condition of your vehicle accurately, the price you are quoted is the price you receive. Once you accept your valuation quote, we will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient collection date, straightforward, with no hassles.

What are the factors we take into account when valuing your vehicle?

  • The weight of the vehicle
  • The vehicle make – specific makes will be worth more
  • The vehicle model – particular models, will be worth more
  • The condition of the vehicle – if a vehicle has salvageable parts or could be repairable, the value will be higher

Environment-friendly commercial vehicle scrapping

When choosing a scrap dealing company, make sure it employs safe and environment-friendly procedures to get rid of old vehicles. Pick a dealer that scraps a van by reducing pollution or desire to run a zero-waste company. This way, you can ensure that 80% of the scrapping will be recycled or reused. Also, an old van is itself enormously detrimental to the environment. You should get rid of it as soon as possible to reduce harmful emissions and pollution.

Scrap commercial vehicles and regulations

The regulations that control the scrapping of commercial vehicles is the same as the scrapping of cars, whereby the commercial vehicle must be scrapped by a certified and Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF). Scrapping your commercial vehicle at an ATF will ensure a high level of environmental protection.

Which documents do I need to sell my van or vehicle?

To scrap your vehicle, you will need:

  • Driving license or passport ID
  • The vehicle V5c – also known as a logbook
  • Any service or MOT history – not essential, but desirable

How about all the legal paperwork?

When filling out the paperwork for your scrapped vehicle, we take care of most of it. If your vehicle was road registered, we will inform the DVLA that it has been scrapped at our ATF. You will need to fill out section 9 in the logbook and send it off. You will then receive in the post a confirmation letter from DVLA. On the rare chance, you don’t get a confirmation letter. You will need to call DVLA on 0300 790 6802 to confirm that the paperwork has been received.

Honest, great communication, great prices. Friendly. I had a damaged catalytic converter from an attempted theft and Reclamet was the only company that had adequate communication and was not dodgy as most of the other scrap metal dealers seemed. So it was well-worth my drive from central London to Kent to get the £784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
