This SEAT Leon from 2004 clocked in close to 2000,000 miles before it finally gave up life and needed significant repairs well above the car’s value.
It will be recycled and broken down to its core materials. In all likelihood these materials will be used to manufacture new cars as part of the scrapping process.
How we price your SEAT 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 SEAT 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
SEAT scrap trends
Known for their 4×4 prowess, be it a hardy pickup or rallying royalty, SEAT is a brand that conjures up images of strength 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 SEAT cars…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the Ibiza (41% of all scrapped models), SEAT’s popular hatchback which hit the market in the 80s. We see a lot of Leon models too (33%), another hatchback model that began production slightly later in the 90s. The Altea (11%), which is now discontinued, is also seen prominently.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2007, 2006, 2008 and then 2009. This suggests that SEAT does have around 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 SEAT drivers are the West Midlands, Lancashire, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.
