ULEZ Scrappage - anyone done it?
« on: October 06, 2023, 06:11:52 pm »
I have an old diesel which has been approved for scrappage. 2010, Ford Mondeo Estate.
I would say the car is worth £1500 as a runner - there's absolutely nothing wrong with it.  Apart from the emissions!  But here we are.

Let's say it's worth £500 scrap, for illustration.  The grant is £2,000.

What's the process? 

Will the dealers give me zero,  and TFL give me  grant for £2,000?
Will the dealers give me £500, and TFL give me  grant for £1,500, to make it up to £2000?
Will the dealers give me £500, and TFL still give me whole grant for £2,000?    So I'll end up with £2,500?

I've seen some scapper's adverts, offering cash on top of the grant. About £250.

Clearly that would be a bonus, but I don't know if that's legit or not.   

Want to know where I stand, and how it works, before talking to scrappers.

I've replied on pepipoo.com

Briefly, it's legit.

Thanks for replies; and reassurance.

Sorry for duplication on Pepipoo.   It wouldn't update there for some reason,  so I thought I'd bite the bullet and finally join this site.

Just make sure you follow the TFL rules or you will struggle to get the 2K out of them

Whatever you get from an approved scrappy is bunce

Follow up in case anyone interested

I got £300 cash from scrappy - plus £2k from TFL. So very happy to get £2300 for a £1500 car.

Scrappy was unbothered by steps introduced to discourage money laundering / car theft.

They are supposed to check my details - photo ID, proof of address - and pay into a bank for an audit trail.

They paid cash - and didn't ask for any details apart from v5. Even though V5 was in my sister's name!  (I had a authorisation letter prepared and her details with me too)
 
As they seemed a bit loose with the rules, I made them sign and stamp a note confirming they were authorised DVLA scrappy to cover my back.

A scrappy playing fast and loose with the rules… who’d have thought!
