What is the Car Breakers service?
With our Car Breakers service you can select one individual vehicle to remove parts from and book a seven hour time slot for removing all the parts you need.
Placing an order is easy:
- Search our website for the car breaker you need or visit our York or Edinburgh breakers yards to browse vehicles
- Call U-Pull-It to book your time slot
- Come to our breakers yard at your allotted time slot, make your payment and remove the parts you need
Your time slot will be an entire day within each yard’s opening times. You will need to reserve a time slot at least 48 hours before the time you wish to strip your parts.
Members of our parent company, Copart UK Limited, can receive at least 10% discount on purchases. To find out how to become a registered Copart UK member, visit the Copart website.
If you have a vehicle and require facilities to strip the parts, you can also reserve a space at either of our car breakers yards. Once you have removed all the parts you need we will then dispose of the frame for you in accordance with all current legislation. Contact either of our breakers yards today to book and reserve your slot. See our price list for more details about charges.
Please note that you are buying the right to remove parts from the vehicle and not the vehicle itself; you will not become the registered keeper of the vehicle and you will not get a log book for it. You are purchasing the parts of the vehicle that you can remove and take away yourself in your timeslot, except for:
- The battery
- Any catalytic converter
- The vehicle’s frame
The battery will be removed from the vehicle before your visit. If you would like to buy a battery from us, you will need to pay extra for it. You may not purchase the vehicle’s catalytic converter or frame under any circumstances.
If you would like to take the engine or gearbox, we will need to remove these from the vehicle before you visit due to their size and weight. As such, there will be an additional fee of £40 to cover our labour costs for removing these if you would like to take them. For safety reasons you will not be permitted to remove the engine or gearbox yourself. See our used engines page for more information on how to buy an engine at U-Pull-It.
After your appointment we will keep the vehicle and dispose of the parts you have left behind.
Tools are not provided for you, so you may bring hand tools and battery-powered tools with you. Power tools and cutting/grinding equipment are not permitted at our breakers yards. You will be provided with a safety vest and a wheelbarrow or sack trolley for carrying your parts.
When you visit our breakers yards you will need to sign in and out at reception and agree to our safety rules.
If you need to change your appointment you can do so at least 24 hours beforehand. If you do not attend your appointment and do not give us 24 hours notice, there will be a rescheduling fee to cover the costs of preparing the car breaker for your visit. This fee will need to be paid before you come to remove any parts.
We will store the vehicle for you for up to thirty days. You will have to pay a storage charge of £5 per day before you come to remove any parts.
If you do not come to remove parts from the car breaker within thirty days of your original timeslot, the vehicle will be put up for resale in U-Pull-It's Car Breakers Scheme. We will deduct the rescheduling fee and any storage charges from the proceeds of the resale, and if you paid by debit or credit card we will refund the rest to the card you used to pay for the vehicle. See our price list for more information about charges.
BreakerBid4U provides you with so much more than the car breakers you see on our website. It can help you to purchase a vehicle online from U-Pull-It’s parent company Copart, and have it shipped to a U-Pull-It breakers yard in Edinburgh or York where you can strip the parts.
