The Top 10 Most Scrapped Cars in Birmingham

As the UK’s second largest city, Birmingham is a well-regarded university area packed with fantastic eateries (it has the most Michelin star restaurants outside of London) and well-known as the home of Cadbury’s chocolate and Lord of the Rings writer JRR Tolkien. 

Often affectionately referred to as the ‘workshop of the world’, and at one time considered the greatest industrial city in the world, this West Midlands hotspot is particularly famous for manufacturing, and the area boasts Britain’s first ever car factory. Having been home to car brands like Peugeot, Triumph, Jaguar and Land Rover, it’s clear that Brummies know and love their cars.

But that doesn’t stop them from needing to send their cars, vans or motorcycles to the scrapheap from time to time. And that’s where Scrap Car Comparison come in.
