8 reasons why you should scrap your vehicle

So, the time has finally come to wave a fond farewell to your beloved vehicle, but what’s the most efficient - and not to mention, hassle-free - way to dispose of it? In this scenario, scrapping your car is the best way to go, offering a whole host of benefits that make the process worth your while.

1.To avoid high running costs

Do you own a car that’s just failed its MOT? Is it causing you a headache due to its unreliableness on the roads through constant breakdowns? Or maybe you’re tired of replacing car parts? In these cases, scrapping your vehicle is less likely to burn a hole in your pocket. Instead, you’ll receive cash almost instantly, which can then be put towards something new.

2. If your vehicle is a risk on the roads

It’s inevitable that your car will fall victim to wear and tear over time, but sometimes it gets to a point where the odd rattle starts to become a regular occurrence. Noises like these should never be ignored. Your vehicle could end up becoming a hazard to other road users, which could potentially cause harm to both yourself, other drivers and pedestrians. Instead, why not scrap your car today with Autosave and put the money towards a brand new vehicle that you can trust?

3. If your vehicle has been written off

If you’ve unfortunately been involved in a road traffic accident and your car has been written off - meaning it’s damaged to the point that it’s no longer road-worthy or repairs cost more than the car is worth - a cost-effective solution is to get your vehicle scrapped. You’re rid of an unusable car and receive cash all in one go.

4.To free up space

For those that find it easier to travel via public transport, but also want to avoid their vehicle collecting dust at the back of their garage, scrapping your car could be a better alternative. There’s no point in a vehicle that isn’t in use taking up valuable space, and when you can get some cash out of the process too, it’s a win-win situation.

5. If you’re looking for a quick and easy disposal

Having a car on your hands that’s not in use or needs to be gotten rid off can be daunting, and how can you be sure that you’re getting the most for your money? Here at Autosave, we aim to provide a quick, easy and stress-free disposal service, offering a competitive price for your car parts that you can put towards a brand new vehicle. Not only this you won’t need to worry about dropping your vehicle off either; we can arrange for a friendly member of our team to pick up your car on a day that suits you.

6. To do your bit for the environment

By both scrapping a vehicle and investing in used car parts, you’re doing your bit to support a sustainable future. This eco-friendly method ensures that no parts go to waste, which is particularly important where non-renewable resources - such as scrap metal - are concerned. As an example, the process of creating new steel emits dangerous levels of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Instead, scrapping your car means that less new materials need to be made, which is much better for the environment.

7. For energy-saving purposes

Alongside being an eco-friendly solution to disposing of your vehicle, scrapping your car also saves the energy that’s required for manufacturing new materials. Again, by making use of car parts that remain intact and finding new purposes for scrap metal, we can work towards a conscious community that holds sustainability at its core.

8. Receive cash

There's no denying it; one of the main reasons why you should scrap your vehicle is the easy cash you can make from the process. Whether you choose to put this towards a brand new car, or something else, the choice is yours. At Autosave, we offer same day payment, so you won’t need to worry about counting down the days until the money hits your bank account.
