How we price your BMW model

When you get a quote with us we’ll use your registration plate to find all of the relevant details; model, year manufactured, weight, MOT status, estimated mileage. This gives us a good idea of whether your car needs to be scrapped or could be salvaged. If your BMW is deemed necessary to be scrapped then we’ll check prices from the best scrap yards in your area. They’ll bid for your car based on its weight rather than condition, mileage or existing faults.

In a lot of cases we are able to salvage your car which gives you a bigger cash payment than simply scrapping it. Salvaging means finding a buyer from your car from across the UK who will either attempt to fix it or strip it for parts. Whereas scrap prices are based on your vehicle’s weight, salvage prices are based on overall condition, mileage, any existing damage and ease of repair. We accept:

Did you know: BMW has a performance division

For many people, BMW’s most significant vehicles are its ‘M’ Division cars. Launched in 1972, all BMW M vehicles are higher performance versions of the brand’s motoring lineup. All M cars are tested at the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

BMW scrap trends

Known as a pillar of German reliability, BMWs have long been the symbol of quality when on the roads. However, things can, and do, go wrong and Scrap Car Comparison is here when it does. Here’s some interesting themes we’ve seen from scrapping thousands of BMW cars…

Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the 3-Series (43% of all scrapped models), BMW’s popular saloon known the world over for its hugely successful sporty ‘M’ model. We see a lot of 1-Series models too (26% again), a hatchback model that many use as their entry point to premium motoring. The 5-series (15%), one of the key models in the executive market, is also seen prominently.

Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2006, 2007, 2005 and then 2008. This suggests that BMW does have better than average reliability as most cars scrapped last year were originally registered in 2007.

Most scrapped locations: Popular areas where there’s a high concentration of BMW drivers are the West Midlands, Lancashire, London and Essex.
