The car scrappage scheme

The car and van scrappage scheme may seem like a great idea at first. However, you cannot purchase any vehicle on this scheme. You can't buy any car, you have to be told a list of possible cars (this changes with each manufacturer). People a lot of the time are finding that the car they wanted they can't have, due to the fact that they are not in the car scrappage scheme.

Reasons to scrap your car

There are so many reasons as to why you would want to scrap your car. The main reason in our experience is that the car is beyond repair, it will be cheaper to buy a new one. If you have a scrap car that is unusable you need to either declare it off the road or scrap it, otherwise your will continue to need to pay road tax on the car.
