On The Road Again


Surprise surprise, here at Britain’s best-loved salvage yard, The Scrappers, we eat, sleep and breathe cars. New and old – running or not.

And we love driving. 

So today we thought we’d share a few of our favourite DOs and DON’Ts when it comes to courteous and careful driving –  good deCARum, if you like:

DO – play your favourite tunes and have a good sing-song. Car-themed tracks are usually the best, Mustang Sally, Little Red Corvette, Pink Cadillac, Life is a Highway, On The Road again…. we could go on!

DON’T – swear and finger gesture at a fellow motorist who might have peeved you off. They might have had a bad day – maybe they didn’t get the best price for a scrap car locally. 

DO – smile at fellow motorists, turn that frown upside down. A smile can elevate your attitude and pep-up mind-boosting neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, which make you feel happy – just like when you sell a car for scrap with the best paying scrap dealers locally

DON’T – pull out suddenly in front of another moving car causing the fellow driver to slam on his brakes – his brakes might not work and he could suffer a damaged vehicle which he may need to scrap locally.  

DO – wait for a safe and sizeable gap before pulling out into traffic.

DON’T – tailgate. It’s not nice for any motorist to have a driver right up their jacksy – how would you like it?!

DO – leave a nice gap in between you and the vehicle in front. With the roads quiet like they are now, you should have ample room – enjoy the road and make the most of it while it lasts. 

Yes we love cars and anything to do with motors.

But not just your fancy pants high end vehicles, we love a clapped banger just as much – actually even more!

That’s because it can be recycled and turned into something new, and the parts that are still in great working order can go on and live in other vehicles, saving you money and also doing good for the planet. How’s that for thinking of others!

Why have new when you can just as easily have good quality reused car parts locally. 

For example, you might be thinking, ‘I need a BMW breakers yard for parts locally’ well, from used BMW engines to headlamps we have the lot. 

We love every molecular scrap of a car, van, truck or motorcycle, so if you need car parts locally, get in touch.

And if you need a breakers yard locally, for parts or to scrap a car contact The Scrappers today. 

We will pick-up your vehicle and take it to our salvage yard where it can be recycled at our Authorised Treatment Facility.

Collection won’t cost you a penny and we will give you dosh for your old vehicle and pay the money directly into your bank account. 

You’ll also get the best price for your vehicle if you’re thinking, ‘I want to scrap a car near me’.

The Scrappers trusted network of collection agents will come and take your scrap car at a suitable time for you. 

When you sell your scrap car locally it will go to our authorised treatment facility where it will be dismantled and you’ll be handed a certificate of destruction.

A certificate of destruction is that all important legal evidence you have scrapped your car responsibly and to government standards. 

So if anyone tells you otherwise, forget about common car-tousy and give them a hand gesture!! 

Seriously though, only Authorised Treatment Facilities like ours are monitored by the Environment Agency to guarantee rules and regulations are being followed. 

This is reassurance that you’ve sold your car locally to a trustworthy and reputable car breakers firm for the best price.
