Who can join MVDA?

MVDA membership is open to companies of all sizes, from owner-operators to national multi-site & international businesses: 

  • Vehicle dismantlers, salvage agents, metal recyclers
  • Companies associated with the industry (auction houses, recovery operators, body shops, equipment suppliers, service providers etc.)
  • Vehicle recyclers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
MVDA members must comply with Association requirements including the Code of Conduct and have all legal requirements in place.

MVDA does not 'regulate' members but our members wish to portray the association and themselves as representing the best of the vehicle dismantling/ recycling industry.

All MVDA members that process/ dismantle/ scrap vehicles and/ or sell used parts must be registered as both an ATF & a Scrap Metal Dealer.  We do not accept applications from 'exempt' operators.

Spare Parts

The use of second hand vehicle parts is as old as the motor car itself, and is probably the single greatest success story in the reuse/ recycling of any consumer product. Apart from saving you money & creating employment in the UK, it has enormous environmental benefits.

Sell or Scrap a Vehicle

Selling your vehicle to someone advertising in a local newspaper or on the Internet, especially if they have no premises & operate with just a mobile number, is fraught with risk. Chances are they are illegal. To avoid fines for speeding, parking or tax offences, only use MVDA members.

Buy a Damaged Vehicle

Buying salvage can be a great way to save money, & get the vehicle you want for a fraction of forecourt prices. But to make the most of it you need to understand exactly what you’re doing; in particular, what to avoid.
