Why the Cash Ban Is Good News
The introduction of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 means it is now illegal to pay in cash for scrap metal. So if anyone does offer a crisp bunch of fivers for your car, don’t sell it to them – if they are willing to ignore the rules with payments, can you really trust them to dispose of your car correctly?
Before the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, scrap dealers were able to pay for scrap with cash and were not required to obtain identification from the seller or keep accurate records. Obviously, this played into criminals’ hands as it made it much easier to sell stolen metal and evade detection.
Some scrap car dealers are complaining about the law, saying that it will harm the industry because the cash ban is unnecessary as we already get proof of identification (V5Cs).
Remove My Car are fully behind the new law, because we are in favour of anything that helps to clean up our industry, which, unfortunately, still has some rogue traders. A better regulated industry can only be a good thing for you, the customer, and legitimate, reliable scrap car dealers like us.
Importantly, the new law will also help to crack down on a major problem that has blighted our towns and cities in recent years – metal theft.
