Vauxhall introduces vehicle scrappage scheme

Vauxhall has launched a Scrappage Allowance scheme, five years after the ending of the official government-backed initiative that helped jump start new car sales during the recession.

The Vauxhall scheme will offer customers £2,000, including VAT, as a scrappage trade-in against new a new car. Models excluded from the scheme are the Viva range, Corsa Sting and Corsa Sting R and Adam Jam.

To qualify for the scheme, customers must have owned their trade-in vehicle for a minimum of 90 days. There is no upper age limit for cars and any manufacturer’s vehicle will be accepted.

“Vauxhall’s Scrappage Allowance scheme makes buying a new car even more affordable,” said Leon Caruso, Vauxhall’s retail sales director.

“Even customers who think that their current car is only worth a few pounds can now turn it into a £2,000 contribution towards the cost of a new Vauxhall – and that’s over and above any other deals they negotiate with the retailer.”

As part of the scheme, vehicles must be traded-in and scrapped to be eligible for the allowance.  All surrendered vehicles will be handled by Vauxhall’s official contracted end of life vehicle partner Autogreen through its online platform.
