Reasons to scrap your car in Luton

There’s a multitude of reasons you may want to scrap your old car in Luton. The most common reason is that the car has failed it’s MOT due to normal wear and tear and is simply too expensive to have repaired. If your car has been in an accident this can be another reason. Other times, something can go wrong with a car whilst the owner is already considering a new vehicle. Because, just diagnosing a fault in a car can be expensive, you may consider simply scrapping the car instead.

For a small minority of those in Luton the car scrappage scheme offers some extra encouragement to scrap their old car. If your old car meets the strict requirements set out by the government, you may be able to get a discount on a new car by scrapping your old car.

The fact that any car must be taxed, unless it is declared off the road, probably provides the most pressing need people have to scrap their cars. The car must still be taxed even if it is completely broken. In this case, it is best to scrap the car before the road tax expires and you have to spend money on a car you longer want. When you scrap a car that still has time left on its tax disk you can claim back the road tax for the time remaining.

It’s also good for the environment to scrap old cars. Newer cars are far more fuel efficient than older ones, meaning that they produce much smaller amounts of greenhouse gases. Scrapping an old inefficient car in favour of a new one allows you to reduce your carbon footprint. By always reusing or recycling as much of a scrap car as possible, we at Scrap Car Luton are able to maximise the environmental benefits.
