Your van has outlived its usefulness. The next question is: what to do about it? It is not an issue that you should spend a great deal of time worrying over. You ought to be able to dispense with your van quickly, efficiently, and affordably. This is best done by enlisting the help of a van scrapping service. Such a vendor specializes in collecting vans and disposing of them. As owner of the vehicle, you will be paid a certain sum of money. If your van was severely damaged in an accident, is well past its MOT, or is just too old to be of any use, then the best move may be to have it collected by a scrapping service. It may not be worth pouring anymore money into a vehicle that does not work as it used to. This is especially the case if you are an independent tradesman or professional who uses your van for transportation and advertisement. Having such marks on the van will make it impossible to trade in. It is better to sell it for parts and metal.
Using a van scrapping service is easy and straightforward. You do not have to be present when the vendor comes to collect your van. You can leave the keys, locking wheel nut, registration document, and any other paperwork you have for the van with a friend, family member, or work colleague. The actual process of collecting the van takes little time. It can all be done within 10 minutes if everything is in order when the collectors arrive. The amount of money you will receive for your unwanted van will depend greatly on the make, model, and condition of the vehicle. A newer model van that is in relatively good condition but may simply be passed its MOT will be worth more than a van that has been in serious accident, or a van that has accumulated hundreds of thousands of miles. Once your van has been collected, you do not have to contact DVLA. The van scrapping vendor that you work with will do that for you. They will also take care of any paperwork that is required to certify the transaction. In summary, your best option for an unwanted van is to have it scrapped. The process of having this done is easy, smooth, and hassle-free. All you need do is make sure you work with a vendor that has a proven record of customer satisfaction.
