Land Rover defenders may be known for their rugged reliability and capabilities, but some of the more road-friendly cars have been known to have electric gremlins here and there. Sooner or later, running and maintenance costs can easily outweigh the vehicle’s worth. But the good news is we scrap based on car weight rather than mechanical issues – ensuring you a fair and transparent price every time.

How we price your Land Rover 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 Land Rover 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
Land Rover scrap trends
If you look at any farm in the UK, chances are you’ll find an old Land Rover knocking around in a shed somewhere. Despite this longevity Land Rovers are still subject to mechanical issues, particularly in some of the newer models. When things do go wrong and Scrap Car Comparison is here when it does. Here’s some interesting themes we’ve seen from scrapping thousands of Land Rovers…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the Freelander (35%), a crossover SUV that was perhaps the furthest removed from the farming workhorses that Land Rover was known for before being discontinued in 2015. We also see a lot of Discoverys (24%), a popular road-going choice for those living in more rural areas. Range Rovers also appear in our figures a lot (20%), officially a model of Land Rover in their early years.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2004, 2005, 2003 and then 2006. This suggests that Land Rover 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 Land Rover drivers are Lancashire, the West Midlands, Kent and Essex.
