not legally
you will have to pay for someone to collect it I'm afraid

We scrapped a car a while ago for a friend who had emigrated and we didn't need to pay anything. They just came and took it away on a low loader.

I would imagine that the way scrap metal prices are going at the minute they might even pay you for the priveledge of taking it away.

Shouldn't your insurance company pay for recovery? BTW it's always worth challenging what they've offered you for the car - I've done this twice and they've always accepted what I've asked for once I've sent them proof that other cars the same age, model, etc are on the market for more than their offer.
