How we price your Volkswagen 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 Volkswagen 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
Volkswagen scrap trends
Known for their extensive range of vehicles, be it a family-friendly SUV or city-suitable hatchback, Volkswagen 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 Volkswagen cars…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the Golf (38% of all scrapped models), Volkswagen’s eternal hatchback which has been around for decades. We see a lot of Polo models too (21% again), the smaller hatchback cousin of the Golf. The Passat (14%), the favoured saloon of VW drivers, is also seen prominently.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2006, 2005, 2007 and then 2004. This suggests that Volkswagen 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 Volkswagen drivers are Lancashire, the West Midlands, West Yorkshire and Cheshire.
