Popular Car Scrapping Questions
What happens after I have accepted a quotation?
After receiving and accepting your online quotation, you will be sent an email confirming the quote. Within hours of accepting the quote, a member of the BHA vehicle salvage team in Oldham will contact you to arrange your convenient collection or delivery and to confirm your preferred payment method, either by BACS or cheque.
Do you charge for vehicle collection?
No, not unless stated in your quotation. We cover the area of Oldham and Greater Manchester and provide a completely free collection service from anywhere within this area. This is determined by the postcode you entered when providing your information for a quotation.
How long after I have accepted your quote will it be until my car is collected?
The BHA recycling centre will contact you within 4 hours, but in some cases can lead up to 24 hours depending on our current volume of scrap car enquiries. Collections are usually arranged within 48 hours. Please ensure to remove all belongings prior to your vehicle being collected or delivered.
How and when will I be paid for my car?
We offer immediate payments within minutes of your vehicle being delivered or collected. We only offer payments via BACS and cheque for scrap cars and vans. Under The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, cash payments for scrap cars are not permitted. You can provide your bank details to the recycling centre when they call you to book your collection or delivery.
Do I need to contact DVLA when I sell or scrap my car?
Yes. It is the seller’s legal responsibility to inform DVLA of a change of ownership. This should be done using the yellow section (transfer to a motor trader or vehicle dismantler) of the V5, with the remainder of the V5 being given to us.
BHA Auto Recycling will complete their details on Section 9 of the V5C and hand this back to you. This should be immediately posted to DVLA. Alternatively, you can notify DVLA online by visiting DVLA website. If you do not have a V5C, you should send a letter to DVLA to inform them of the transfer of ownership as soon as the vehicle has been handed over to the recycling centre.
