How Do I Scrap A Car Near Me?

Scrap Near Me


It’ll come as no shock, the rear-end well and truly fell out of the car sales industry with new purchases down by nearly 90 per cent compared to May last year.

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show a mere 20,247 vehicles were registered in May 2020 and that was mainly after ‘click and collect’ services were introduced during the middle of the month.

Crazy to think though, this time last year there were 163,477 more car registrations and 

last month was the lowest in car sales since May 1952! That’s 68 years ago!

Now that car showrooms have reopened with new social distancing measures in place, there’s hope the market will pick back up again soon.

But for some motorists, it’ll mean keeping hold of their current car for longer than they intended. This means ramping up car maintenance practices so when it is time to sell a car your vehicle’s resale value will be at a premium. And getting your hands on quality replacement car parts when needed!


Measures including regular tune ups which could include replacing or cleaning systems like fuel filter, spark plugs and ignition wires. Make sure your motor’s oil is changed and check the engine has coolant so it doesn’t overheat.

Keep a check on tyres too, there is a straightforward penny test you can do to check the treads. Pop a coin in upside down and see if you can see the Queen’s head, if you can it’s time for new tyres, if you can’t your tyres are good to keep on turning.

To get longevity out of your tyres, it’s a good idea to rotate them, so when they wear, they consistently wear. 

Here at The Scrappers we offer all types of tyre services, from tyre rotations, to pressure checks, to replacement tyres.
