-- From 3 December 2012, scrap yards in Leeds, and the rest of the UK, cannot pay cash for scrap cars but Yorkshire’s ACME Auto Salvage can.
This is because ACME Auto Salvage operate out of recognised End of Life Vehicle (ELV) stations, scrapping cars in the most environmentally friendly way possible and adhering to guidelines laid out by the DVLA, Environmental Agency and DEFRA.
It means that they can pick up a car from anywhere in the UK and give the customer cash in return; along with a Certificate of Destruction to prevent any further action from the DVLA. The team at ACME could even help road users to claim tax back on their scrap car.
Changes to the Scrap Metal Dealers Act, effective from December 2012, were introduced in a bid to combat cable thefts which have blighted the rail industry. Thieves of copper and aluminium will no longer receive cash at the scrap yard for their ill gotten goods, but a by product of the change is that road users can no longer scrap their car for cash at the local scrap yard.
As a legal ELV station, ACME Auto Salvage offers cash for damaged cars and salvage vehicles, and they guarantee to not be beaten on price; beating any genuine quote from another vendor.
The ACME Auto Salvage service is seen as an improved new way to scrap a car, since road users might previously have had to transport their ELV to the scrap yard at greater expense. Now, a member of the ACME Auto Salvage team can pick up the vehicle from any address, and the customer can arrange for the pickup online, at a time which suits them.
