Kia may now have the reputation of a good, well-built and good value Korean brand of car, but that quality wasn’t always there. If you’ve got an older Kia in your driveway, there’s a strong chance that sooner or later running costs or maintenance bills will soon start outweighing your vehicle’s value. That’s where Scrap Car Comparison comes in. We scrap based on car weight rather than mechanical issues – ensuring you a fair and transparent price every time.

How we price your Kia 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 Kia 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:
- Crash damaged cars
- Insurance write offs
- SORN vehicles, missing DVLA paperwork and those without an MOT
Kia scrap trends
Known now as a hugely reliable brand – backed up by its seven year warranty – the thought of a Kia being a non-runner is somewhat strange. However, when things do go wrong with your Kia, Scrap Car Comparison is here for you. Here’s some interesting themes we’ve seen from scrapping thousands of Kia cars…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the Picanto (21%), a city car that was Kia’s best seller in Europe throughout 2004 to 2006. We also see a lot of Ceed models too (19%), a larger family hatchback. We also scrapped a similar number of Sportages (17%), an SUV regularly seen on school runs up and down the country.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2006, 2009, 2005 and 2007. This suggests that Kia enjoys 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 Kia drivers are Lancashire, the West Midlands, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.
