Why scrap your car in Dartford?

There are many reasons you might want to scrap your old car in Dartford. Most often, the car has simply failed its MOT and the cost to repair it is greater than the value of the car, rendering it worthless. Sometimes though, the car has been in an accident which has caused catastrophic damage. Less commonly, a car can develop a fault whilst the owner is already considering the purchase of a new vehicle. As just finding out what is wrong with a car can be costly you might want to scrap the car instead.

The car scrappage scheme offers an extra incentive to scrap a car to a small minority of those in Dartford. 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. This is true even if the car is broken and not in use. It's best to scrap the car before its tax disk expires in order to avoid paying out again for road tax. Also, if you scrap your old car whilst it still has a lot of time left on its tax disc you can claim that tax back from the government once it has been scrapped.

Scrapping an old car is also good for the environment. Old cars are far less fuel efficient than newer cars, which means that they produce larger amounts of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. 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 Dartford are able to maximise the environmental benefits.
