Tips for Disposing of an Old Car
If you have an old vehicle lying around your property and it is no longer suitable for the road, why not get rid of it in your local scrap yard. You can make money from what is left over and get rid of an unwanted vehicle which has been lying around your garden or garage. If you drive a car which is not roadworthy, you could end up getting in trouble with the law. You can be issued with penalty points or the car can be taken off you, depending on the situation. Your safest bet is to contact a scarp company in Rainham, and have it taken away to the junkyard.
If you decide to get rid of your car, there are a few things you must remember:
- Get your documents in order
- Bring proof of your identity & address
- Clear the car before you bring it to the scrap yard
- Reclaim insurance and tax
- Only use a legitimate scrapyard dealer

Why Scrap Your Car?
Most people scrap their car as a last resort, usually after it has been involved in a bad accident and the vehicle is beyond repair. If this is the case, you can get some money back if you sell it to the scrapyard.
If your car is really old and it has failed the MOT more than once, you may think about sending it to the crusher. Some people also sell their vehicle because it is too expensive to repair, or they simply can’t find a buyer.
