How Our Scrap Car Calculator Works


Our calculator couldn't be simpler to use. All we need is your car's make and model along with your postcode. We'll do the rest in the blink of an eye.


  • Vehicle details: This helps us identify the exact make, model and age of your car, and ensures we calculate the best, most accurate quote possible.

  • Postcode: This helps us understand where you are in Australia, which means we can calculate the best scrap prices for your local area.


How To Have Your Scrap Car Collected


Once you have accepted the quote for your car, we can collect it from you - scrap car collection is free! One of our team will contact you by email or phone to arrange an ideal collection time. We'll do our best to collect at your chosen time, and we collect most cars within just two working days.


Our collection times are usually Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm and Saturday's 8am till noon. If this doesn't work for you, do let us know and we'll do our best to make the timing work.
