WICKS Scrap vehicle division is dedicated to depolluting all End of Life Vehicle’s whether it is written off, beyond repair or redundant. We recycle 98% of your vehicle and provide you with a DVLA certificate of destruction for assurance and peace of mind. As well as all of the above your vehicle could be used for vital fire brigade RTC training.

The ELV process:

1.    Getting your vehicle to us:

There are 2 options:

1.    We can arrange to collect your vehicle at a time and place that suits you.

2.    You can deliver your vehicle to our depot at Sowerby Woods without the need for an appointment. (see our opening times)

Once we have received your vehicle  we will issue you with a certificate of destruction (CoD)

It’s a legal requirement for all scrap cars to be issued with an official CoD when they reach their useful end of life.

We generate a CoD via the DVLA online system; this will either be sent to you via post or email.

We advise you to keep the CoD indefinitely as it is important as you may need it to prove to the DVLA that you have taken your vehicle to a registered ATF waste site and it is no longer on the road.

(there is no charge for the initial CoD but may be if a replacement is required)

·         We will then begin the De-pollution process as set out by the environmental agency.

We make sure all vehicle materials and liquids are reused, recycled or safely disposed of.

This process is closely audited by the environment agency as well as the department for BIS.
