How we price your Tesla 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 Tesla 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: Tesla sales soar

Tesla cars have rocketed up through the UK’s sale figures, with the Model 3 ending 2021 as the second-best selling car in the country and the Model Y taking third-place a year later. With EVs set to dominate the market in the coming years, these numbers are sure to continue growing.

Tesla scrap trends

Known for their electrical pioneering and incredibly high-tech features, Tesla is a brand that conjures up images of sleek, comfortable journeys and problems that can be solved with a simple software update. 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 Tesla cars…

Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the Model 3 (47% of all scrapped models), Tesla’s most recognisable car. We see a lot of Model S cars too (40%), a smaller, nimbler model. The Model Y (7%), Tesla’s SUV model, is also seen prominently.

Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2020, 2021, 2016 and then 2019. This suggests that Teslas either have terrible reliability, or, more likely, are involved in a high number of accidents. Most cars scrapped last year were originally registered in 2007.

Most scrapped locations: Popular areas where there’s a high concentration of Tesla drivers are London, Surrey, West Yorkshire and Buckinghamshire.
