How it Works


  • You will receive confirmation of your application within one (1) business day.
  • Details of your vehicle and the city it is located in will be forwarded to local Certified Recyclers for them to bid on your vehicle.


  • You will be notified via email of the highest bid from your local Certified Recycler AFTER two (2) business days after receiving confirmation of your application.
  • You will be able to accept or decline the highest bid.
  • If you accept the bid, your contact information will be sent to the winning recycler. If you decline, the file will be cancelled.
  • The offer is valid for the next seven (7) business days, if you do not respond within that time, your file will be cancelled.


  • After assignment you will be contacted within five (5) business days by the winning recycler to arrange pickup of your vehicle.
  • If you are available and in a pickup area, the recycler will pick up your vehicle within seven (7) days and will provide payment via cheque in full for your vehicle.
  • Please ensure you provide the original of your vehicle registration documents to the recycler.


  • The bid amount is dependent on the year/make/model of the vehicle and location. Recyclers value the vehicle as a source of materials and some parts. In certain special circumstances the vehicle could be resold to another recycler or repaired.
  • Not all vehicles will generate a bid due to the vehicle location or the value of the vehicle. In these situations we will take best efforts to re-bid the vehicle, but in some circumstances a vehicle will need to be dismissed.
  • Vehicle registration must match Vehicle Owner
  • Cheques will be issued to the Vehicle Owner only
  • In certain circumstances, a cheque will be mailed to the Vehicle Owner, as the recycler is using a contract tower to remove the vehicle. In all cases, the cheque will be mailed immediately.
  • Vehicle condition and description must match the information uploaded for the recycler to evaluate your vehicle
  • Original ownership and keys must be presented to the recycler upon pickup of the vehicle
  • Vehicle Owner or designated Contact must be present to accept payment
  • All bids can be cancelled without notice at the discretion of the recycler based on missing or incomplete information, or administrative error.
