If you've chosen 'Scrap'
Autolink will recycle your car, completely and forever. They'll take care of unloading, delivery, storage, scrapping and the scrapping paperwork. They'll get a certificate of scrapping registered to the owner of the vehicle. Autolink can forward this, plus registration papers or number plates.
Reasons why you might need copies of these documents include registering a SORN, showing them to your insurance company to cancel your policy or getting your Iran Carnet deposit back. There is a fee to pay Autolink for postage and administration. This will be €50 +VAT (per vehicle) to within Europe, €100 +VAT outside of Europe. You pay this directly to Autolink.
If you've chosen 'Collect'
Autolink will know of your intention to collect the car from the disclaimer you sign and the colour of the spot on the car. After your car has shipped, you need to contact Autolink (from your registered email) and arrange with them the details. You can discuss with Autolink, an arrival date. If someone else is fetching your car then you need to let Autolink know in advance, along with details like your friends ID and arrival time. If your friend doesn't show, you're still responsible for the vehicle and the storage costs your car is incurring.
What if I'm late?
All cars are delivered to Paldiski, Estonia. The first 7 days' storage are free. After that, storage costs 1 EURO per car per day for 31 days +VAT, and then 5 Euros + VAT per car per day. It's your responsibility to let the shipping company know your plans. If they haven't heard from you a certain amount of time after your vehicles arrival, your vehicle will be scrapped.
