Van Scrapping FAQs

What About the Transport for London Scrappage Scheme?

The Mayor of London put a variety of scrappage schemes in place, to help the motorists in London scrap their older, polluting vehicles in order to meet required emissions standards. While these schemes are currently suspended, if you are in the middle of the process to scrap a van you can still push your application forwards, and if you’re looking to sign up, you can find out more below and be prepared for when the schemes resume.

The scrappage scheme for vans and minibuses is helping to depollute London’s air. The scheme supports small businesses and charities, with 50 employees maximum. The objective of the scrappage scheme is to encourage drivers to replace their older vans which do not meet the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) emissions standards. The grant for a light van or minibus was £7,000 to purchase a replacement van, but your current vehicle must meet certain criteria.

How Much is My Scrap Van Worth?

The value of your scrap van will depend on the weight, condition and age of the vehicle. If there are any parts on the van that can be salvaged then the value of the scrap metal is the biggest contributor. In general, the heavier the car, the greater the scrap value. However, some vans will hold more value than others, and this is due to the engine size, make and model, as well as the rapidly changing metal market. These factors make it worth more for a collector and in turn, make it more valuable to sell.
