Has your Vauxhall been written off, failed its MOT or become too costly to run? Perhaps you are experiencing unforeseen changes to your personal circumstances or are keen to upgrade your vehicle for a newer model.

To help you make an informed decision about the future fate of your vehicle, we’ve outlined the many factors that could influence how much your Vauxhall could be worth when it is scrapped.

Why should I scrap my Vauxhall?

There are several reasons that commonly lead people to scrap their vehicles. Perhaps you are experiencing a change to your financial situation and the running costs of your current vehicle are too expensive, or the car has been written off in an accident.

Alternatively, you may have experienced an unforeseen change in your personal circumstances, or you’ve discovered that your car is unsafe to drive and you are looking for a quick and convenient solution.

Perhaps your Vauxhall has reached the end of its life and you are experiencing ongoing issues with it? Cars that become older, less fuel efficient and less reliable lead to increased running costs and often cause people to want to scrap them to make some extra cash. With our trusted network of trusted buyers, we will ensure you receive the very best price for your car – simply enter your postcode and car registration here to find out how much you could receive for your scrap car.

My Vauxhall is too good to scrap – what now?

While scrapping your Vauxhall is a convenient and reliable solution, it isn’t the only option available to you.

If you feel that your Vauxhall is in too good condition to scrap, you can also make money from selling your car through one of our trusted and reliable salvage buyers. A salvage buyer will take your vehicle, break it down into individual parts that will either be resold or used to help repair other vehicles.

You’ll still receive the best guaranteed quote from our trusted network of buyers, and you will experience the same level of unrivalled service from us whether you scrap or sell your car for salvage, including our free collection service. With our convenient process, you won’t need to follow the terms and conditions involved in a scrappage scheme.

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

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

With Vauxhall’s scrappage scheme, the money you receive will have to go towards a new Vauxhall model from a selection of vehicles. You will not be able to use the money you receive for anything else, or to buy another car that isn’t a made by this manufacturer.

Scrapping your car through Scrap Car Comparison means that not only will you receive an instant quote  for your Vauxhall 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 Vauxhall’s scrappage scheme, you can use the money you receive however you want.
