Can I scrap my car in lockdown?

Let's have a scrap!

BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS – there’s a lot of it going on right now as we try to figure out what’s to do for the best in the current climate. 

With local lockdowns springing up here and there looking pretty likely for some time it can be hard to plan what’s for the best.
It’s no wonder the coronavirus pandemic has got us all feeling a bit lost. Speaking of lost, who remembers the days before sat navs and smartphones?
When we had to rely on good old fashioned map reading!


For some it was a breeze, second nature to figure out how to get from A to B. But for others it was stuff of nightmares, usually resulting in a mini breakdown behind the wheel. Luckily technology has stepped in for those who have a terrible sense of direction. It can help those who struggle with map reading, unless they can’t grasp a smartphone either!!

For those types of people it’s always best to have someone who knows the way sitting right next to you in the passenger seat! However, if areas are going into regional lockdowns there won’t be much opportunity to drive anywhere and get lost anyway!

At the time of writing it was announced that Bolton, home of Britain’s best breakers yard The Scrappers will be closing down pubs and restaurants. Takeouts will still be available but going to the boozer won’t be for the foreseeable.
