    The Benefits of Scrapping Your Car

    Home » News » Should You Scrap Your Old Car? More Money, Less Problems

    Financial gain

    Scrapping your car is a quick and easy way to earn a bit of cash and more often than not, you will receive an upfront payment from when you hand your car in.

    It really is as simple as handing in your car and leaving with money. You can speak to a member of the team at Jarvis Metals, who will be able to provide you with a free quote for your vehicle.

    Better for the environment

    It is no secret that we all need to be more mindful about how we can reduce our carbon footprint. Older cars tend to be less fuel-efficient, with the average petrol car on the road in the UK producing the equivalent of 180g of CO2 every kilometre it drives.

    Of course, opting for public transport as opposed to driving any car would be the most environmentally friendly option, but of course, this concept lacks practicality for many of us. However, a new car is a great alternative, with better fuel consumption meaning less impact on global warming.

    Additionally, when your car is scrapped, environmental regulations must be adhered to which means your car parts and materials are recycled, which in turn reduces the amount of steel having to be produced.

    Less hassle

    Having to constantly worry about an old vehicle breaking down is stress no one should have. Older cars can often be unreliable and even a hindrance, knowing that they will need to be repaired every few months.

    With taking your car to a scarp near you being such an easy option, there is no reason to have the additional headache of your old vehicle. 

    Extra space

    Having an old car lying around on the drive is not only inconvenient but can also be an eyesore. Getting rid of it will be one less thing taking up space, especially if it is not regularly being driven.

    So, if you’re around the Brackley or Northampton area, give us a ring today to see how much you could get for your old car. Be assured that you can hand your car over to the professions so your car can be disposed of in the right way.
