Vauxhall revives the scrappage scheme with £2k guaranteed part-ex on new cars
Vauxhall is offering new car buyers a minimum £2,000 trade in value when part-exchanging their old car against most new models
Vehicle scrappage schemes could be making a comeback in the UK as Vauxhall is re-launching its Scrappage Allowance policy. Those wishing to partake will be eligible for a £2,000 minumum part-exchange value when trading their old car in against a new one at Vauxhall dealers nationwide.
While previous scrappage schemes only applied to vehicles of a certain age, Vauxhall’s scheme has no upper age limit and applies to any manufacturer’s vehicles. The only requirement is that customers must have owned their trade-in vehicle for at least 90 days.
Cars excluded from the offer include the Viva, the Corsa Sting, Corsa Sting R and the Adam Jam but other than that the Vauxhall range is completely up for grabs. All trade-ins will be scrapped by Vauxhall’s contracted end-of-life vehicle partner Autogreen.
Vauxhall’s retail sales director, Leon Caruso said: “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, such as free insurance.”
The Vauxhall £££ signs in new car buyers eyes should bring a lot of buyers/interest back into the Vauxhall showrooms as they are the only car company with this C4C scheme, and once driven they might be smitten. Seems like a great idea to me.
