It’s often thought that the amount you will get for your vehicle is solely dependent on the make and model, but this isn’t the only factor and there are others that are considered.

Here we will help you understand how much your damaged car is worth and different factors which may be taken into consideration when calculating its worth.

How is the value of my vehicle calculated?

As we are a vehicle scrappage company, all of the vehicles we buy are recycled legally and in line with environmental guidelines. When a vehicle is sold to be scrapped, it’s often end of life, whether it’s damaged due to an accident or an MOT failure, the owner makes the decision to scrap it as it’s unfit to drive or not worth the cost required to fix it.

Scrap vehicles are often stripped of their parts before being depolluted and recycled for their metal. Here at Scrapping A Car, the main factors which are taken into account when giving you a price for your vehicle are:

● The weight of the vehicle: This is the main contributing factor to the price you are given as usually heavier vehicles mean more metal. The heavier the weight of the vehicle, the more you will be paid.
● The national scrap value: The amount the scrap merchants receive for the metal is dependent on the national scrap value so this will have an effect on the cars worth.
● Make and model of the vehicle: Some vehicles carry high value parts, and this will increase the amount you are paid for your scrap vehicle. Such parts can include; engines, body panels, gearboxes, alloy wheels, and other parts which could be resold as used.
