How we price your Vauxhall 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 Vauxhall 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
Vauxhall scrap trends
Known for their reliability and affordability, be it a small hatchback or family crossover, Vauxhall is a brand that has become synonymous with the UK’s historically hard-working motor industry. However, as cars age and production methods change, 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 Vauxhall cars…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the Corsa (29% of all scrapped models), Vauxhall’s popular hatchback which seems to have been a hit with drivers since the day it first launched. We see a lot of Astra models too (29% again), a slightly larger model than the Corsa. The Zafira (13%), the popular family car, is also seen prominently.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2007, 2008, 2006 and then 2009. This suggests that Vauxhall does have worse 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 Vauxhall drivers are Lancashire, the West Midlands, Yorkshire and Devon.
