Scrapping a car is a very environmentally-sensitive process

This article is brought to you by Sell The Car.

You’ve finally decided to take the leap and buy a new car.  Your finances are all in place, you know which set of wheels you have your eyes on and have imagined it sitting perfectly in your driveway. The only thing standing in your way now is the small little question of what to do with your current car. 

You might be lucky enough to be able to sell it to another driver who will look after it and love it like you once did. However, if you’re not fortunate enough to have the luxury of being able to offer someone a fully working, safe and efficient car then how do you dispose of it to make way for your new vehicle? It may be that you’re vehicle is now not safe to drive and a risk to you and other motorists or maybe an accident has written your car off.

You’ve gone through the options available to you and identified one as scrapping your car. However, if this has now conjured up images of vast land filled with old and battered cars stacked sky high then you wouldn’t be alone. You would then be pleasantly surprised to learn that scrapping your can may be one of the most environmentally friendly and safe options to dispose of your car.
