Vauxhall Scrappage Allowance Scheme Returns, Offers Up to £2,000
If you are in the market for a new Vauxhall, the return of the automaker’s Scrappage Allowance Scheme and the possibility of getting up to £2,000 toward the purchase of a new vehicle should come as a pleasant incentive.
The Scrappage Allowance Scheme provides up to £2,000 (including VAT) toward a new Vauxhall when customers trade in an old car for the purposes of scrappage. Naturally, this will not be terribly useful if you drive a more contemporary car, but if you have a vehicle that has served you well for a decade or more, this offer will be of great benefit.
“Not only can customers potentially swap their older, often higher-polluting car for a cleaner, more efficient, brand-new Vauxhall, but they can also use scrappage in conjunction with some of Vauxhall’s other great finance offers,” said Leon Caruso, Vauxhall’s Retail Sales Director.
Vauxhall notes that the Scrappage Allowance Scheme will be mindful of classic cars traded in for scrap, adding that any cars manufactured prior to 1991 will be identified by recycling partner Autogreen and reported to Vauxhall headquarters so that owners’ clubs can be notified about available parts.
“Vauxhall has immense respect for the UK’s classic car groups, irrespective of what make or model they support,” said Simon Hucknall, PR Manager for Vauxhall Product and Heritage. “The Scrappage Allowance is designed to capture vehicles that are beyond economical repair, and given the low value of scrap metal, recycling of parts is vital to the scheme’s viability.
“We’re also confident that the number of genuine classics over 25 years old presented to the scheme will be minimal, especially given the steady rise in value of even the most mainstream collectors’ cars in recent years. But if we do see any, our ‘safety-net’ will ensure that classic car owners and clubs will benefit.”
The Scrappage Allowance Scheme will be available while stocks; new Vauxhalls purchased and registered prior to June 30th will be eligible for the program.
