The scrap­page scheme is back!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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.
