Top 3 Reasons for Scrapping a Car

Posted on by Steve Whipp

Has your car come to the end of its life? Perhaps it’s been involved in an accident or the maintenance costs are just no longer financially viable – if this is the case you may well be thinking of scrapping your car. But is scrapping a car the best option for you? Here are a few reasons why it may well be the ideal solution:

1. Money

As with most things in life, it all comes down to money. Scrapping a car could earn you that little extra cash. And coming to a company like Recycling Monkey may well mean you can get more money for your car than you would placing an advert in the paper or listing it on an auction site.

2. Peace of Mind

When you scrap a car through a trusted and reliable company you can be confident your car has been disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way possible, and that anything that could be retrieved from the car has been recycled and reused. It also offers you the reassurance that your car will not end up back on the road illegally. You will also receive a Certificate of Destruction so you can be sure it has been disposed of safely.

3. The Hassle-free Solution

We all know that selling a car can be stressful and often time consuming. You need to advertise the car, make yourself available for potential viewings as well as having to deal with the money side of things. You always have the danger of buyers coming back to you after deciding they’re not happy with their purchase.

Seeking the help of a specialist scrap car recycling service will take all the hassle away. You simple need to provide them with the necessary information and they can do the rest.
