Is your Volvo starting to get a little long in the tooth? Or perhaps you’ve had your S40 project sitting on your driveway for the last couple of years and it’s finally starting to settle in that it’s just never going to move again. If the answer to either of these, or any similar situations, is yes, then it’s time to start looking at scrapping, and National Scrap Car is here to make it as simple as possible.
Common Reasons for Scrapping a Volvo
There can be any number of causes that result in a car being scrapped, from physical problems to a change in your own circumstances. For example, you may find a repair bill to fix accident damage or a mechanical failure may prove too expensive for you, or you simply may just find that as the car ages it’s becoming less and less economical to keep it running. Alternatively it could be that you simply do not need the car like you once did. A location or job change could mean you no longer need to commute, or you simply can’t afford the upkeep on an older vehicle.
No matter the reason, National Scrap Car will happily take the motor off your hands, getting you the best price with minimal fuss.

Scrap Car Collection – Most Collected Volvo Models
More often than not when we compile the statistics for each manufacturer there is a runaway model that takes the lion’s share of the percentages. With Volvo, that is far from the case, and the S40 narrowly sits atop the standings, less than 1% more than the second placed V70 – not bad going for a car that’s been out of production for a decade. The S40’s replacement, the V40, sneaks into the bottom of the top five, but there is only an 8% gap between first and fifth.
