What are the downsides of scrappage schemes?
Perhaps one of the biggest problems with a car scrappage scheme is you are forced to buy a brand new car which will lose between 30 and 50% of its value in the first year of ownership. This means that anyone looking for a nearly new car which is 1 or 2 years old is excluded from taking advantage of these scrappage schemes.
Another problem of scrappage schemes is that they require your car to be in full working order with a valid MOT, road tax and insurance. For anyone with an old banger sitting around at home without any of these, you won’t be able to take advantage of any of the schemes. The schemes are also limited to vehicles which are registered between 1992 and 2010, so if your car falls outside of this period then you will be out of luck.
For the best price possible we can offer to buy your scrap car and can even collect it from your home. Whether your car is a non-runner, needs some TLC or is accident damaged, we’ll be happy to take it off your hands.
