We buy old, scrap or damaged cars, MOT failures or End of life cars. We are NOT a used car buying service.

For cars older than 12 years old, we work on your vehicle weight to determine a scrap value. This can change weekly due to changes in the market, but we will always offer the best price in Northern Ireland. For newer cars or damaged cars, we use calculations based on the information you supply to value your car.
