There’s a growing list of reasons why taxi drivers should scrap a taxi for cash and here at The Scrappers we will explain more.

Firstly, the introduction of the ultralow emission zone (Ulez) in London has led to firms scrapping their diesel vans for low emission versions – as are taxi drivers.

Now growing numbers of towns and cities are looking at introducing clean air zones for their city centres, including:

Bath

From late next year high emission vehicles will be charged to enter the city centre. Taxis will pay £9 per day.

Birmingham

Taxis face an £8 levy from January next year once the proposed clean air zone comes into operation.

Glasgow

From January 20, taxis will be among those vehicles being restricted in the city centre.

Greater Manchester

With growing numbers of electric vehicles, or EVs, on our roads, you may be searching online for ‘How to scrap your electric car’.

While numbers are low currently, there’s no doubt that from 2019 more electric cars will need to be scrapped or recycled because they’ve either been involved in an accident or are too expensive to repair.

This then leaves owners with something of a conundrum because they will need to use a reputable scrap car firm to ensure their vehicle is disposed of correctly.

Failing to do so may lead to the environment being polluted as rogue car scrappers will fail to de-pollute the car properly so there may be oils and chemicals being thrown away.
