Scrap my Audi – all you need to know
Has your Audi been in an accident and been written off? Is it on its last legs and too expensive to repair? Are you looking for some extra cash to fund the purchase of a new vehicle?
If you have an Audi that fits any of the criteria above, you could find the best solution is to scrap your vehicle. While there are several factors involved with scrapping an Audi, we’ve included everything you need to know in our blog.
Find out the different reasons your Audi might be eligible for scrapping, which Audi models are worth the most when scrapped and the different scrapping and selling options available.
Common reasons for scrapping an Audi
The decision to scrap your Audi can be caused by a number of different situations. You may want to scrap your Audi due to personal circumstances, or your vehicle may need to be scrapped due to its condition and the cost of any repairs it could need.
Sometimes repairs and maintenance of an older model of Audi can be too expensive to maintain, your vehicle could be less fuel efficient or not as reliable than it used to be, or your vehicle could have been in an accident and may be considered unsafe to drive or be on the UK roads. If your experience corresponds to any of the above situations, you could scrap your vehicle and make some cash to invest into a new vehicle.
Even if your Audi isn’t damaged or underperforming, there’s still an opportunity to scrap it. You could have recently moved and no longer need to use your Audi as much as you used to, or it’s a second car that’s collecting dust in the garage. If you want to avoid the hassle of taking your car to the scrap yard yourself, we at Scrap Car comparison can lend a hand.

What affects my Audi scrap value?
When scrapping an Audi, the price that you will receive will be most affected by the weight of your vehicle. Beyond that, the model of the car, its age, any damage it has received, and its general condition will also affect the price.
If you want more information about the different factors, and how they can affect the value of your car, check out our blog to find out how much you could get.
After the weight, the model can be one of the next most important factors, so read on to find out how much money your Audi model could be worth.
Audi scrap value comparison
In this section, we will look at the different Audi models and how their scrap value measures up against each other.

My Audi is too good to scrap – what now?
Even if your Audi car is too good to be scrapped, there’s no reason why you can’t still make some money from it through Scrap Car Comparison. You’ll still receive the best quote, hand-picked from our network of scrap and salvage buyers, and we will be sure to offer you the same service as we would if your car was getting scrapped with us.
You’ll find the whole process hassle-free and still be able to get rid of your old Audi car, without wasting any time or effort selling your old vehicle or having to buy a new car in exchange, as some scrappage schemes require.
Audi scrappage scheme
Audi doesn’t have a designated scrappage scheme, but it does offer a part-exchange service that could allow you to either sell your Audi vehicle or exchange it towards the cost of a new or Approved Used Audi.
Their designated app, much like the Scrap Car Comparison quote tool, allows you to get an idea of the value of your car so that you know how much you could receive when trading it in at Audi. You can then contact your local Audi Centre and they will arrange to complete an appraisal of your vehicle and provide a professional part-exchange valuation. However, this value is only a guide since the actual price will depend on other factors, such as the colour, any modifications, the vehicle’s condition and service history. The price can also change depending on when you visit your local Audi Centre.
Scrappage vs scrapping – what’s best for your car?
The main difference between the part-exchange scheme from Audi and scrapping your Audi car through a buyer or Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), such as Scrap Car Comparison, are the conditions tied to receiving your money.
With a part-exchange scheme, you won’t know exactly how much your Audi vehicle could be worth until you take it to the Audi Centre for an appraisal. Additionally, once you have received your quote, that quote will often depend on you trading in your car and using the money you receive to buy a new car from Audi.
Scrapping your car through Scrap Car Comparison means that not only will you receive an instant quote for your Audi by using our handy quote tool, you’ll also be able to have your scrap Audi collected and scrapped completely free, and the money you’ll receive can go towards whatever you wish.
