Cash For Scrap IconScrap my Hyundai – all you need to know

If your Hyundai is sitting gathering dust after an accident that’s too expensive to fix, it’s been written off, or you’d simply like to upgrade your car for a newer model, you may be wondering what you can do with your old car. Is there a way your old Hyundai could help you afford a new car or unlock some money that you could use elsewhere?

It doesn’t matter what your reason is, if you have a Hyundai that you’d like to sell, but can’t trade through regular channels, such as through Autotrader or a dealership, then we offer an alternative solution. You can bring your car to Scrap Car Comparison and we will help you sell it to the right scrap or salvage buyer and secure you the best possible deal.

While there are several factors that can influence how much your old Hyundai will be worth when it’s scrapped, we’ve included everything that could possibly affect it so that you can make the most informed decision for you.

Common reasons for scrapping a Hyundai

Whether you’ve experienced a change in personal circumstances, need to adapt to a new finance situation, or had an accident or breakdown, you may be considering scrapping your car.

Alternatively, you may be experiencing the end of the life of your Hyundai – all cars get slower, less fuel efficient, less reliable and can accrue increased running costs as they get older, and sometimes it’s not worth keeping the car at that point. You may have recently moved and no longer need your car to commute, or you may have bought it to fix it up and it’s sitting collecting cobwebs in the garage.

Even if none of the above reasons fit your situation, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still scrap your Hyundai to make some extra cash. No matter the reason, get a quote for your old Hyundai from Scrap Car Comparison. With our network of trusted buyers, we ensure you get the best price for your car – just enter your postcode and car registration to find out what you could receive.

What affects my Hyundai scrap value?

When you receive your quote for your scrap Hyundai, the price that you receive will be affected by several factors. The weight of your vehicle is the most significant factor to influence the price, but it can also be affected by:

  • The model of Hyundai.
  • The age of the car.
  • Any damage it may have received.
  • The general condition of the car before it is scrapped.

If you’d like to find out more about the different factors in more detail, and what you can do to get a better value for your Hyundai, read more in our blog.

My Hyundai is too good to scrap – what now?

While scrapping your Hyundai is both an easy and convenient option, it’s not the only one. If your Hyundai is too good to scrap, you could also make your money from its sale through one of our salvage buyers at Scrap Car Comparison. Instead of crushing your car, a salvage buyer will instead break the car down into parts that can be resold or used in other vehicles for repairs.

You’ll still receive the best quote, from our trusted and reviewed network of buyers, and you will receive the same unrivalled service from us whether you scrap or sell your car for salvage, including our free collection service. With our hassle-free approach, you won’t need to go through the long process of selling your old Hyundai or have to adhere to the terms and conditions of a scrappage scheme.

Hyundai scrappage scheme

Hyundai has a scrappage scheme currently in effect (at the time of publishing this article). The stipulations of this scheme are that if you own a Hyundai that was registered before the 1st October 2011, you can trade it in and make between £300 to £4,000 which will go towards a new Hyundai model.

You must have owned your Hyundai for over 90 days and this extends to both petrol and diesel cars. Find out more about the Hyundai scrappage scheme here.

Scrappage vs scrapping – what’s best for your car?

The main difference between the Hyundai scrappage scheme and scrapping your Hyundai car with a buyer or Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), through Scrap Car Comparison, is how you’ll receive your money for your scrap car

With Hyundai’s scrappage scheme, you are able to find out how much you could receive for your vehicle on their website, between £300 and £4,000, but the money you receive will have to go towards a new Hyundai model. You will not be able to use the money you receive for anything else, or to buy another car that isn’t a Hyundai.

Scrapping your car through Scrap Car Comparison means that not only will you receive an instant quote  for your Hyundai through our handy quote tool, it will come without any hidden fees or charges, meaning that the price you’re quoted is the exact amount you will receive if you accept the offer.

You will also be able to take advantage of our Scrap Car Collection service, which will transport your scrap car to wherever your buyer is located, completely free of charge. And, unlike Hyundai’s scrappage scheme, you can use the money you receive however you wish.
