Great service

This is my second time using car take back. Both times this was a really good service in contact with me with in a day and both cars gone in less than a week. Great srrvice

Excellent Scrappage service - highly recommend

The service was efficient. They did what they promised they would do i.e. payment was as agreed, they turned up on time and all the documentation was dealt with promptly and legally. I would definitely recommend this company to family and friends

Would highly recommend.

Excellent service. The guy came at the time he'd said, removed a car that had been broken down on my driveway for over a year. And paid me for it. Was very pleased.

Excellent service

Excellent service. My car was picked up at the arranged time and the quoted price was paid in full on the spot with no questions asked. I received the certificate of destruction within 4 days. I couldn't ask for more !

First class service

From start to finish this company we're one of the most professional I've delt with. From the first phone call, to arranging collection, to payment and paperwork - first class. Thanks to all involved.

They did exactly what they said they would

They came they took the car and they paid cash. They did need a reminder call to arrange the pick up other than that - they did what they say they would.

Quick Eyesore Removal

Very good... they rang and they came they collected and paid.. now no more junk at the back door... Excellent service
