We buy scrap Volvo cars
This 2009 Volvo V70 had critical automatic transmission due to lack of oil and filter changes over time.
Given the high mileage and some damage to the car’s bodywork, the owner sold the car through us for salvage for thousands more than the scrap price.
How we price your Volvo 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 Volvo 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
Volvo scrap trends
Known for their reliability and safety, be it in a a larger SUV like the XC90 or executive sedan, Volvo is a brand that conjures up images of Scandinavian hardiness 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 Volvo cars…
Most scrapped models: We mostly saw the V70 (16% of all scrapped models), Volvo’s popular estate model which lasted 20 years before being discontinued. We see a lot of V50 models too (15% again), another estate model which has since been discontinued. The S40 (14%), the brand’s popular saloon model, is also seen prominently.
Most scrapped year: Our most scrapped years are 2005, 2004, 2006 and then 2007. This suggests that Volvo 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 Volvo drivers are Lancashire, the West Midlands, West Yorkshire and Kent.
