Is scrapping an old car worth it?

Whether or not you decide to scrap an old car you may have been lucky enough to have owned, depends on what the Independently Audited Value of the car is, relative to any Costs you will need to incur to repair the car or get it roadworthy again.


To decide whether to keep your car or not, start by calculating your Vehicle’s Street Value


Avoid the temptation to use the precharted value that you find on websites. This may have inaccuracies in it depending on when the data was calculated and published online.


Inaccurate data means you could sell your car for less than the price the market is prepared to pay you for it. It could also lead to you overpricing your car, and not getting many enquiries for it.

  • Take the Valuation your Cash for Car dealer has given you and deduct it from the Cost of Repairs you’ve worked out with your Mechanic (don’t forget to add any Pink Slip or Green Slip expenses to your Estimated Cost of Repairs)
    • Repairs must last for a minimum of 12-0 254 months depending on the age of your car.


  • The decision Point – if your car’s Independently Audited Valuation exceeds the cost of your Car’s Repair quote, you can safely sell your vehicle.
