How we price your Mini 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 Mini needs to be scrapped or could be salvaged. If your Mini 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
Mini scrap trends
Known for their cool British style and convenient size, Mini is a brand that conjures up images of tradition and reliability. 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 Mini cars…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the Cooper/Hatch/One (92% of all scrapped models), which encapsulated most of Mini’s cars. We see a lot of Countryman models too (4% ), the largest model in the range. The Clubman (3%) is also seen prominently.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2007, 2004, 2005 and then 2003. This suggests that Mini does have much 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 Mini drivers are Lancashire, the West Midlands, Surrey and Essex.
