End of Life Vehicle Disposal
H.C.S is Brighton’s only authorised end of life vehicle treatment centre. We are fully licensed by the Government and Environment Agency. We are also working hand in hand with DVLA, disposing End of Life Vehicles and issuing a Certificate of Destruction.
WARNING: DISPOSE OF YOUR VEHICLE LEGALLY OR FACE FINES AND CONTINUOUS CAR TAXATION
Don’t dispose of your vehicle to 'cowboys'
They don’t deal with your V5
They don’t issue you with a C.O.D
They don’t de-pollute the vehicle
As an owner of an End of Life Vehicle, DVLA have stated it is your responsibility to dispose of your vehicle to an ATF (authorised treatment facility), which can legally deal with de- polluting the vehicle. The COD will be issued to the last keeper or owner of the vehicle, which will end their financial and legal responsibility, by updating the record held at the DVLA, (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency).
Once the D.V.L.A has been informed, the last owner will receive an acknowledgement letter confirming the discharge of liability of the vehicle.
If an acknowledgement letter is not received within four weeks the owner should contact DVLA on 0870 2400010.
YOU ONLY SCRAP YOUR VEHICLE ONCE SO DO IT LEGALLY
The DVLA has started to issue new V5C Registation Documents.You can no longer use the V5C to notify DVLA that the vehicle has been scrapped. You need a C.O.D.... A CERTIFICATE OF DESTRUCTION from us to notify scrapping and to get a refund on the vehicle road fund license (Road Tax). Only a licensed AUTHORISE TREATMENT FACILITY such as ourselves can issue a C.O.D
