It is very important for Bulgaria to have an effective and sustainable system built and operating for separate collection and treatment of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) and for recycling and/or recovery of ELV waste in order to minimize the impact of waste on the environment thus contributing to the protection, preservation and improvement of the quality of life. Thus we will preserve our nature.
If your car is depreciated and is no longer worth repairing or has been crashed, find us and you will benefit. What is your benefit? In addition to the money you will receive for the ELV you give us, you will save time and taxes. Call us and you will be explained how the price of your vehicle is determined, what the procedure for its deregistration is, what the consequences are if you fail to take the necessary measures.
What types of vehicles do we buy out?
The answer is ALL types. Whether your vehicle is a motorcycle, a tractor, an automobile, a trailer or a truck. Each ELV has its value. Even the one that has been crashed.
Our terms and conditions for buying out ELVs:
An obligatory requirement for having an ELV bought out is for you to be its owner or a person legally entitled to dispose of it, for instance, a notarized power of attorney or a certificate of inheritance are documents certifying such entitlement.
When handing over an ELV, copies of the big registration certificate of the vehicle and the ID card shall be provided. Where the owner of the registration certificate is not the person handing over the vehicle, the relevant document certifying that you are entitled to sell it will be required.
Attention! The vehicle that is being handed over must not have a forged, deleted or damaged identification number.
We do not buy out road vehicles that were not legally imported or declared wanted until the issue of ownership has been clarified.
What price will you receive for your vehicle??
The price will be determined under the following procedure:
- Verification of the regularity of the documents submitted for the ELV handed over;
- Inspection of the vehicle for the availability of its essential components;
- Measurement of the vehicle to determine its weight;
- Determining the price of the purchased vehicle. The price will be determined on the day of handover, by reference to the quoted prices of ferrous and non-ferrous metals on the world stock exchange.
What is the buyout procedure?
The first step is to decide on the future of your vehicle – to hand it over as an ELV. The handover of ELVs only takes place on sites authorized by the Regional Environmental Inspectorates to accept such waste classified under Ordinance No. 2 of 2014 on the classification of wastes with code 16 01 04* and designated as end-of-life vehicles or under code 16 01 06 and designated as end-of-life vehicles not containing liquids or other hazardous components.
The second step is to call and receive an approximate offer for the buyout of your vehicle. For this purpose, you need to provide data on the make and model of the vehicle as well as the year of its first registration.
The third step is to state whether you want to have your vehicle transported to an authorized site or you will deliver it on your own. A Road Assistance driver, accompanied by a general worker, will lift the ELV and will deliver it to the site.
The fourth step is to prepare copies of the following documents: the big registration certificate, an ID card, and, if you are not the owner referred to in the registration certificate of the ELV, you need to provide a copy of a document certifying your right to dispose of it.
The fifth step is to receive a final offer for the value of the vehicle after it has been delivered. It will be determined by measuring the ELV on a vehicle scales and applying the price rate to its weight on the day of delivery.
The weight of ELVs delivered is measured on a scale certified by the Regional Department of the “Measures and Measuring Instruments” General Directorate, SAMTS (State Agency for Meteorological and Technical Surveillance), with a weighing note issued. The control of the arriving ELVs is documentary – the documents of the vehicle and the documents certifying its ownership or use will be be examined. When lifting the vehicle, a visual inspection will be carried out by the driver in the presence of the owner in order to identify the availability of the main parts of the ELV. Upon entering the site, the ELV will be reviewed by the receiver.
The sixth step: After receiving the value of the ELV handed over, you need to wait for your data to be processed so that you have a dismantling certificate issued. With this document and the removed registration plates, you must go to the Traffic Police to deregister the vehicle. After deregistration, you are no longer a state debtor for tax purposes for this vehicle.
What will happen if you do not take the above steps?
When your vehicle is not in motion, but you feel pity to part with it and keep postponing that moment, there is a risk that it will be lifted at the direction of the municipality. This will happen when your vehicle is parked on a terrain that is state or municipal property, for example, in front of the block. The procedure followed by the municipality is as follows: the mayor of the municipality appoints a commission that places stickers on abandoned vehicles on its territory. The sticker indicates your obligation to move the vehicle within a certain period of time. If you fail to do so, you are subject to a fine and the vehicle will be lifted and moved to an ELV storage site, again giving you a period of time to collect it, but after paying the cost for its relocation. After the expiration of the period, the ELV will be disassembled.

You should know that:
As an owner of a vehicle which is at the end of its life cycle, you are a potential polluter if you do not hand it over to an ELV collecting or dismantling site and in such a case the “polluter pays” principle applies – the persons forming or contributing to the formation of hazardous waste or polluting the environment, or the current waste holders, must cover the full costs for the treatment of such waste and manage it in a way that ensures a high level of protection of the environment and human health.
Modern vehicles have a steel content of about 77%. Therefore, shredded scrap is the most significant weight in the outgoing ELV recycling stream. In Europe, one ton of raw steel is produced in electric volute furnaces from about 1.1 tons of steel scrap on average.
The important principles we all have to follow are:
- “Prevention” – potential waste problems should be anticipated and avoided at the earliest possible stage.
- Waste should be reused and restored, and reuse and recycling should be preferred. This is also the case with the separation of parts for reuse from ELVs.
- “Proximity” and “self-sufficiency” – waste must be disposed of as close as possible to its place of generation, with waste generated in the EU treated within the Union.
- “Public Participation” – stakeholders and authorities as well as the general public have the opportunity to participate in the development of waste management plans and waste prevention programs and have access to them after their development.
- Improving the environmental outcomes from the behavior of all economic operators involved in the life cycle of vehicles, and in particular operators directly involved in the treatment of end-of-life vehicles.

Pretreatment of cars
Upon receipt on the temporary storage sites and by the owners, the End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are dismantled on specially designated places.
Designing and building of the sites comply with all environmental and sanitation requirements under the operative laws and regulations for waste treatment of motor vehicles (Prom. SG. 7 dated 25.01.2013).
The practice of the company shows that taken for dismantling End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are generally divided into three types:
a) End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) for detailed dismantling with a view to preserving the integrity of parts and components for reuse (about 10% of the total flow of End-of-life vehicles);
b) End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) for dismantling with retaining of a small part details specified by accepting party for recycling or reuse – (about 30% of the total flow);
c) End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) for recycling without saving of any parts – (about 60%).
Despite the small percentage of End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) with parts suitable for reuse, when dismantling we pay attention to their separation and the separation of components that are classified as hazardous waste.
Because of this reason the dismantling of the End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) is done very carefully in order to reduce the amount of hazardous substances in waste at subsequent treatment.
After dismantling, the remainder of the End-of-life vehicles (ELVs) are shredded.
During the shredding the materials undergo a series of mechanical and physical separations, thus metal from the non-metal waste is separated, ferrous from non-ferrous metals.
This way, the resulting waste is sent to be put to a useful purpose at the recycling industry.
Recycling processes significantly reduce the need for non-renewable natural resources, which leads to a reduction in pollution.
Around 93% of the End-of-life vehicles (ELVs), mainly metals, are recycled in the EU.
