Established in 1979, Pigotts Autoparts have a great deal of knowledge, expertise and experience in the vehicle dismantling industry. As of 2008, the current staff have a combined service of over a hundred years at Pigotts alone. Over the years we have seen many changes within the industry with the European Directive on end of life vehicles having a huge bearing on these changes. The directive required all dismantlers to upgrade sites to a standard of compliance with the necessary stipulations of their site licences with the Environment Agency and undergo regular site inspections. Further licences such as a waste carriers licence are required and strict requirements have to be met to be granted registration with DVLA. We are also required to keep specific records for Police inspection.
All of this legislation proves a great expense, both financially and in labour time. Read more here about the processing of a scrap vehicle.
A further service we provide is the supply of all North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue training vehicles to their training centre, helping to save lives.
