When your car reaches the end of its useful life, you’re not really overflowing with options. You can try and sell it on for parts. You can see if anyone wants to try and restore it for a laugh. You can let the local kids set it on fire. Or, you can scrap it. Having considered all of these options, we reckon you’re best off scrapping it. For three main reasons that we hope you’ll find convincing. So if you’re wondering what to do with your battered old motor, read on and see why you should call the scrap yard straight away.
1: We Should Recycle More
Reason one is all about making yourself feel better. How often do you turn on the TV or open a paper and feel guilty because you don’t recycle as much as you should? But, let’s be fair, it does take a bit of effort to sort through your rubbish, and there are better things to do with your weekends. But scrapping your car should soothe your conscience straight away. Because when you scrap a car, all kinds of metals and materials will be recycled and reused, meaning that less environmentally damaging new materials are made. And recycling a car has to outweigh not recycling your daily paper.You may find more information at auto scrapping deals.
2: Scrapping Reduces Pollution
You can also feel better about reducing your emissions and pollution when you scrap your car.
Because while most of your broken down motor can be re-used to make everything from cutlery to computer cases, there are some parts of your car that are making the planet worse. And the older your car, the worse the pollution it creates. Scrapping your car solves this issue twofold. First, it takes an older car off the road, meaning it needs to be replaced with a newer, greener model. And second, it means that things like tyres and batteries that can be harmful when they’re just binned have to be properly disposed of. And that means you can really feel good about yourself.
3: It’s Worth a Few Pounds in your Pockets
But, while it’s great to feel good about helping the environment, it’s even better to feel good about having a couple of quid to spend on something you’ve had your eye on. When you scrap your car with a reputable car scrapping company, they’ll give you a fair price for your vehicle. All you need to do is hand over your log book, ask them to collect and scrap your car, and then just work out what to spend your cash on!
