BANGER, BE GONE: THE VAUXHALL SCRAPPAGE SCHEME IS BACK!
Vauxhall introduced their own landmark scrappage campaign back in 2015, designed to remove older, more-polluting vehicles from the roads. The scheme was a big success, with thousands of motorists using the opportunity to upgrade to safer, better and more eco-friendly models while saving a few grand thanks to the guaranteed trade in price...
... so for this month only, we're pleased to announce that the Vauxhall Scrappage scheme is back and better than ever before.
WHAT IS SCRAPPAGE? WHAT'S THE PLAN?
It's that simple. There's never been a more optimal time to trade up your vehicle, especially if you're currently driving an old diesel (which are set to be slapped with huge taxation measures and may be difficult to sell as used vehicles in the near future.)
But hey, if you're bringing us a fairly new motor just because you fancy a change, remember that we're offering at least the advertised scrappage amount. In the case of newer or higher spec vehicles, chances are likely that we'll be able to offer you substantial more.
AND THE CATCH?
There really isn't one. All we ask is that the car has been in your ownership for at least six months.
WHAT IF I BROUGHT YOU SOMETHING LIKE THIS?
Looks good to us. We'd probably say you can keep the netting, but as long as you can physically (and legally) drive the car to your local Eden Vauxhall dealership, it'll absolutely qualify for the scrappage scheme.
WHAT HAPPENS TO CLASSIC CARS THAT ARE BROUGHT IN?
Based on the previous time we ran the Vauxhall Scrappage scheme, we can confidently say that the number of classic cars that are brought to us beyond economical repair are minimal. However, any that are presented to us are scrapped with due care and attention - in particular, the details for pre-1991 models are passed on to UK owner's clubs and classic car groups so that parts can be purchased before the rest of the vehicle is scrapped.
SO HOW MUCH WILL YOU GIVE ME?
There's only one way to know for certain how much you'll get for your trade-in, and that's by giving one of our friendly sales team a call. They'll be able to talk you through the scrappage scheme in more detail, as well as offer you a figure for your current vehicle (non-obligatory, of course, but we guarantee you'll find it hard to refuse!)
