Services

This Site provides a service to help you sell or recycle a vehicle. You can use this Site to submit details about a vehicle and the location of which you need the vehicle collected to us, which we will use to provide a quote ("Quote”).

RMC third party agent

We act as an appointed agent for a network of third-party agents who process end of life vehicles either for recycling or repair. They are independent of RMC. If you choose to proceed based on a Quote by submitting an order (” Order”) to us, and we then accept your Order (by email), you will enter into a purchase agreement or a disposal agreement with one of these third parties. You understand that we are not a party to the purchase or disposal agreement and shall have no liability whatsoever to you in relation to your dealings with a third-party agent. You also agree that we shall have no liability to you in relation to act, omission or negligence of a third party agent when collecting your vehicle including if the third party agent damages your property.

Details of the relevant third party will appear on the Site after you accept your Order.

RMC is not a party to any purchase agreement or disposal agreement and is not liable for any breach of those agreements by you or the relevant third party.

Please note that our third-party agents are obligated to follow certain laws and regulations with regards to your vehicle if it is being disposed of, including the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013. In particular, you must be aware that you will not be permitted to receive cash if your car is being disposed of and there are certain minimum ID requirements that you will also have to meet. A Certificate of Destruction can be issued for end of life vehicles. If you require this, please ensure you have informed our third-party agent or RMC directly, before your vehicle is collected. If you fail to notify RMC or our third party agent prior to collection, we cannot guarantee a COD will be issued.

In order to access your Quote, you will need to enter your vehicle registration and your 4 digit login code where prompted on the Site..

Privacy

Your privacy and personal information are of utmost importance to us.

Requesting a Quote

To request a Quote, you’ll need to tell us your vehicle registration and collection postcode (where known). In some cases, you may have to answer some questions about your vehicle before receiving a Quote.

Registration and lookup services

Our registration lookup service (based on your post-code) will attempt to return certain details about your vehicle such as the make, model, derivative, year, and fuel type.

Questions and assumptions about the condition of your car

We may ask you some questions about the condition of your car – these will be in the form of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers. For any unanswered questions, we may make some assumptions. Your answers and our assumptions will be shown to you alongside your Quote.

You will have the opportunity to discuss your Quote, with the relevant third party agent who will be processing your Order.

If upon viewing of the vehicle, the vehicle’s condition is not as described, we reserve the right to adjust the Quote accordingly and our third-party agents may do the same.

Our response to your request for a Quote

We will attempt to use the details you have given us to provide you with a Quote.

Your Quote will be based on the type of vehicle and the postcode entered, as well as your answers to our questions about its condition if required when requesting the quote, and, in the case of any unanswered questions, our assumptions. These details will be confirmed to you alongside your Quote. We will also send a copy of these details to you by email, where you have provided us with your email address. 

Collection service

We are unable to provide our free collection service and can refuse to collect your vehicle if you do not ensure that you comply with the above two bullet points or we may deduct a fee from the Quote if our time spent collecting your vehicle is delayed due to accessibility or other issues caused by any of your acts or omissions. 

We or our third-party agent will agree a collection time with you verbally or in writing.  If for some unforeseen intervention or circumstance, you need to re-arrange collection for a different time, you agree to notify us immediately by email at info@removemycar.co.uk and in any event within twenty-four (24) hours of the planned collection. If You fail to notify us of cancellation and the recovery driver completes all or part of the journey to the collection point to no avail, we or our third-party agent be entitled to charge you a call out charge to the sum of one pound (£1) per mile in respect of the recovery driver’s one-way journey to the collection point or the sum of sixty pounds (£60.00), whichever is the greater.

Minimum requirements

Your Quote will be based on the following “Minimum Requirements”:

·                you can provide photographic ID and proof of address;

·                you are the sole owner of your car, and your car is free of all finance charges, such as a hire purchase or loan agreement;

·                no parts are missing whatsoever including for example all sets of keys, exhaust, engine, lights etc. If parts have been removed in the past, the replacement parts must be like for like therefor must be a genuine OEM part. 

Please tell us if any of the above criteria do not apply, as the Quote provided on our Site will be void. You will have the opportunity to discuss these details with us when you request a Quote. We, or the third party agent , may, at our/their discretion, decide to provide a new Quote, which you will have a reasonable opportunity to accept.

Quotes

Scrap value quotes

Should the quote show for your vehicle as a ‘Scrap Value’, we are able to guarantee your Quote if you comply with the Minimum Requirements set out above and any other criterium specified on the Site that you are asked you or your vehicle complies with before we give you a Quote.

If you have any questions or queries regarding your Quote, do not hesitate to give us a call on the number set out on the Site.  

Please note that your Quote may change after discussing your vehicle with us. You are under no obligation to accept the revised Quote if we alter it at any point.

High value vehicles

For higher value vehicles, we may specify on our Site that we require more information about your vehicle before confirming a quote, You will then be required to enter your contact details and submit your completed form. We will aim to send you an SMS message and an email,  approximately 1 hour later. Please note that sometimes it might take us a little longer to contact you, so we cannot guarantee that you will receive the notification within an hour from the time you submit you form.

You must ensure that your description and all details relating to the vehicle that you provide us with are true and accurate and not misleading. Please note that if we deem that you have not accurately described your vehicle at any point after providing you with a Quote, we reserve the right to change the Quote without liability to you whatsoever.

How our quotes work

Your Quote is guaranteed to be fixed and will not change, as long as the details on which it is based are still accurate at the point at which your car is handed over.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the details on which your Quote is based are accurate before you accept it.

Please note that if parts have been removed from the vehicle and/or modifications have been made, whether it was by you or a previous owner, if the part has been replaced by a significantly cheaper version of the part or the modification was poor quality, your Quote may be reduced. If we do this, you are under no obligation to accept the new reduced Quote.

Your Quote will be valid and honoured regardless of the collection date given to you by the third-party agent. However, if you wish to cancel or change to collection date given to you by our third-party agent whether you are disposing of or selling your vehicle, we or our third party agent reserve the right to cancel and withdraw the Quote in our or their absolute discretion and provide you with a new Quote closer in time to the proposed collection date of your vehicle.

If, at any point, we become aware of anything that affects the details on which your Quote is based, the Quote will become void or we later discover that your vehicle does not meet the specific criteria for your Quote as set out above (i.e scrap value criteria and criteria for high value cars, we, or the third party agent, may, at our/their discretion, decide to provide a new Quote, which you will have a reasonable opportunity to accept.

 

Scrap Metal Dealers Act (the “Act”)

If your car is being disposed of you will need to ensure that you comply with the Act. This will set out the key information we  need to store for 3 years after disposal for example. It is your obligation to ensure that you comply with the Act. 

Limitation of our liability

We cannot be held responsible for delays due to extreme weather, strikes, pandemic, lockouts, industrial disputes, acts of god, or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

Nothing in these Site Terms excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by English law.

Payment Guarantee

We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our Website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of any websites you visit.

15. What happens if you fail to provide personal data

If you do not provide personal data to us and this would prevent us from performing the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you, or place us in breach of the law, we may have to cancel your order. We will notify you if this is the case.

If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

17. International transfers

We will not transfer your data outside the UK without first obtaining your written consent. Where we have your consent to transfer your data outside of the UK, we shall take all reasonable measures to ensure that it is sufficiently protected and that we are in compliance with all applicable laws, including but not limited to the UK General Data Protection Regulations (UK-GDPR).

18. Data security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties on a need-to-know basis. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

19. Liability

Our liability to you under this privacy policy shall be subject to the liability cap set out in these terms and conditions.

20. How long will we use your personal data for?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

You can ask us about the retention periods for different aspects of your personal data by contacting us.

In some circumstances we may deidentify or anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be used to identify you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

21.Your legal rights

You have the right to:

21.1 Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

21.2 Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

21.3 Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Please be aware, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

21.4 Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

21.5 Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

(a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy;

(b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;

(c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or

(d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

21.6 Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

21.7 Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

21.8 We do not knowingly collect data relating to children who are not able to consent to giving us their personal data.

21.9 You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request if we reasonably believe that your request is unfounded, repetitive or excessive.

21.10 We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

21.11 We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
