Nearest Scrap Yard To Me

I want to scrap my car Bury

What’s bugging motorists..

Warmer weather brings out the best in folk and it also brings out a few more visitors. We’re not talking social distancing rebels – we mean green flies or aphids as they’re also known. 

And while this is a normal part of nature this time of year it can mean the extra bug splat on your vehicle when you drive and even when it’s parked up.

Bugs like green flies tend to leave a very sticky residue on your paintwork which can be a struggle to remove without damaging paintwork at times.

But there are quite a few ways to prevent the build up of sticky bug sap in the first place. 

After washing your car, apply a wax, this waxy sheen will make it harder for bugs to stick around.

If you do find an onslaught of bug residue, clean your car with a specialised bug spray remover for vehicle. Don’t be tempted to use regular household products like washing-up liquid.


There are plenty of bug and tar removers for vehicles which will safely remove any ground in dirts and splats without damaging car paintwork. 

As a popular scrapyard in Bolton and also serving the nation, we often hear of cleaning mistakes motorists make when trying to scrub out green fly sap, for example or bird poop.

Some have used abrasive scourers and sponges and inadvertently scratched their cars. In the long run that costs them dearly as they require resprays.

Others, who may have older cars with exteriors they are not that bothered about any more just let the bugs have a field day and the sap builds up becoming harder to remove.

We’ve had cars brought into our yard where you literally cannot see through the windscreen because they’re that thick in bug splat and sap.

This happens when they’ve been parked up, under trees for ages. Cars that don’t perhaps run anymore. That’s usually when car owners are saying, “I want to scrap my car Bolton way”. Or they are saying  “I want to scrap my car in Manchester. Some think, “I want to scrap my car Bury way.” Or anywhere else for that matter.  

Then they give us a call and we do the rest.
