Reasons to scrap your car

There are a lot of reasons for wanting to scrap an old banger. One of the main reasons for scrapping a car will be that it has failed its MOT, and the work costs to much to put it right. 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.

The car scrappage scheme

The vehicle disposal (car scrappage) scheme may seem like a brilliant idea at first. However, you are in fact limited to what type of new car you can get. You can't buy any car, you have to be told a list of possible cars (this changes with each manufacturer). This can prove to be very frustrating as you have to choose a car that is currently in the scrappage scheme.
