Scrap Your Ex: You Can Now Name Soon-To-Be-Scrapped Car After Your Ex-Partner

Every year Valentine’s Day marks the season of love and romance, but let’s be honest – not all relationships last the distance, meaning that for some, this time of year can be a reminder of those partners you’d rather forget…

So for those in the midst of a break-up, or suffering from heartbreak this Valentine’s Day, we want to provide a unique way to gain some closure: say hello to our new ‘Scrap Your Ex‘ scheme and goodbye to your ex!

At Scrap Car Comparison we work with hundreds of scrap yards up and down the country, and scrap thousands of vehicles every year – so this year, we wanted to put the vehicles heading to the scrap heap to particularly good use…

What better way to let go of the past, and indulge in some proper ‘car-tharsis’ by naming an old banger about to hit the scrap heap after your ex-partner, and waving their namesake car out of your life for good?

Sound good? If you’re interested in naming an old car heading for the scrap heap after a former lover, all you need to do is complete the form below, telling us what your ex is called, and why you want them to be ‘scrapped’ this Valentine’s Day.

All entries must be made by the day of love itself – Wednesday 14th February 2024.

Open to anyone worldwide, we’re expecting high levels of demand, meaning that we may not be able to scrap everyone’s ex this year, but we’ll do our best!

The lucky lovers who do get the opportunity to scrap their ex, will receive photographic evidence of the deed once it has happened, providing the ultimate heartbreak healer.
