It seems that more vehicle recyclers are heading down the route of not taking cash for payment, the latest news comes from Charles Trent, one of the leading experts in vehicle recycling, who are making some important changes to how they accept payment for salvage vehicles at their sites.
As of the 1st February 2020, cash payments for salvage vehicles will not be accepted at Charles Trent sites.
You will still be able to pay cash into a Charles Trent bank account for any vehicle(s) won at their auction and they will continue to accept payments for salvage vehicles via debit cards at their sites.
Small cash payments can be made for storage fees, but please contact their team ahead of collection to confirm that you are intending to pay via this method.
If you have any questions regarding any of this information, Charles Trent salvage auction support team can be contacted on 01202 744194 (ext. 403) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note, car parts purchased with cash aren’t affected, unless over the legal threshold.
