The scrappage scheme is back!
Vauxhall has opened its Scrappage Allowance Scheme once again – allowing customers up to £2000 towards a new car when their old one is scrapped. As part of the scheme, vehicles must be traded-in to be scrapped or recycled in order to be eligible for the allowance.
The latest scrappage scheme is aimed at reducing air pollution. Vauxhall has surprised many, however, by offering an unprecedented safety net to the classic car community.
Autogreen, Vauxhall’s recycling partner, will identify any cars manufactured prior to 1991 that are presented through the scheme. It then informs Vauxhall’s Luton headquarters. Relevant owners’ clubs will then be notified, giving them the opportunity to buy parts through the treatment facility.
Vauxhall’s PR manager Simon Hucknall, says: ‘Owners’ clubs will benefit from the good parts. they can’t purchase the car outright, as we’re duty bound to put them in for recycling. The parts themselves are sold by Autogreen, and the prices are set by the company. This is a real positive outcome for some clubs crying out for spare parts.’
Scrappage Scheme victims can’t be bought outright, but their SCRAPPAGEvaluable parts can be.
