Motorbike & Scooter Breakers FAQs

How much will you charge to collect my bike?

If we agree to collect your vehicle, We will not charge you, providing it is within mainland England, Scotland or Wales. There are no additional administration or hidden charges.

How soon can you collect?

Depends on your location usually within 3-4 days but in any event no longer than 10-14 days. Same-day collections are usually available within 50 miles.

Do you break/dismantle all the bikes you get in?

No. However, we do deal with a number of police forces and recovery firms and it is stipulated that most of these bikes are dismantled and the headstock removed to ensure the frames are not put back on the road.

Do you need the Vehicle Registration Document (Logbook/V5)?

Ideally (and preferably) yes but it is not essential for us to collect your bike. It is also preferable to have the keys too. However, we do not buy or collect stolen bikes or bikes we have reason to believe are stolen or where the frame and/or engine numbers have been removed!

How much will you pay for my bike

It obviously depends on the make, model, year and condition of motorcycle and also your location, please email us as much information as possible so we can give you an accurate assessment. We will agree a price before we come out and see you. We will pay cash at the time of collection or payment direct to your bank if we are sending a courier.

Will you inform the DVLA?

No, however we will complete the V5 Registration Document, there is a section for you to send back to the DVLA.

Will I received a Certificate of Destruction?

No, we are not an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) and so therefore cannot issue you with a certificate, however we do recycle over 99% of the motorcycles we collect.

How do you treat hazardous waste? 

We use a registered external third party company who specialise in the collection, transport and recycling of hazardous waste fluids such as used engine oil and coolant. We store these on the premises and they are periodically emptied.

Do you just collect motorcycles and scooters?

No, we can collect trikes, horse boxes, trailers, pit bikes, mopeds, quad bikes and ride-on-lawnmowers too! We also have a sister companies that buys cars, vans, trailers and caravans too, car-breakers- peterborough.co.uk.
