There are many reasons why you should scrap your car and some are more obvious than others. If you’re asking yourself “why should I scrap my car”, this article will hopefully help you make the right decision.
Better for the environment
Your car may be damaging the environment due to excessive Co2 emissions or high fuel consumption. It’s more environmentally friendly to recycle your old vehicle and buy a new one that has lower emissions. Lower emissions will also reduce your tax cost so you will save more money in the long run.
Excessive running costs
Is your car costing you an arm and leg in constant repairs and high service fees? In this scenario you’re better off selling or scrapping your vehicle to save yourself the headache and stop throwing money down the drain.
You could use the money
We’ve all been in a tight spot once or twice in our lives and a little extra in our pockets can really help us out. If you’re not using it, sell it. Turn that lifeless heap of metal into hard cash and put yourself in a better position.
Your car’s no longer safe to drive
There comes a time in a cars life span where it actually starts to become unsafe to drive. Don’t put yourself and others at risk and scrap it before something terrible happens. It really isn’t worth the risk.
You prefer public transport or cycling
Not only is it better for the environment, but it can be better for your health too. If you can live without your car then why keep wasting all that money and space. Get rid of it and with that extra money you can treat yourself to a yearly travel card or new bicycle.
Your car has been written off
Firstly, we hope you or anyone involved are ok if there has been an accident, but if your car has been written off then it’s worth speaking to us to see what we can do for you. It’s possible the car can be salvaged and therefore we would buy the car from you. If it is unsalvageable, we will scrap it and give you the best price possible.

It also means you have proof of destruction in case you ever needed it.
