Vauxhall has reintroduced its scrappage allowance scheme – offering up to £2,000 to trade-in customers.
Customers can combine the scrappage allowance with finance offers including Flexible Personal Contract Purchase Plans (PCP) to gain maximum advantage from the scheme which is re-launched today and runs until December 31st.
Cars being traded-in must be registered to the customer at least 90 days prior to the order date of the new vehicle.
“We are pleased to welcome back our scrappage allowance scheme, helping customers to fund their new car with up to £2,000 for their old model,” said Leon Caruso, Vauxhall’s Retail Sales Director.
“Not only can customers potentially receive more for their outgoing model, but they can also use this in conjunction with some of Vauxhall’s great finance offers, making their new Vauxhall even more affordable.”
Customers choosing a new Astra, Mokka, Mokka X, GTC, new Zafira Tourer, Insignia or Cascada model will receive £2,000 (including VAT) towards the cost of their new car.
The Viva, Adam Jam, Corsa Sting, Corsa Sting R and Corsa Diamond are not eligible for the scrappage allowance.
Traded-in vehicles must be scrapped in order to be eligible for the allowance.
Autogreen, Vauxhall’s recycling partner, will identify any cars manufactured prior to 1991 that are presented through the scheme and inform Vauxhall’s Luton HQ.
Relevant owners’ clubs will then be notified, giving them the opportunity to purchase parts through the Authorised Treatment Facility.
Vauxhall’s previous scrappage campaign ran last year and led to the scrapping of approaching 15,000 older, more polluting vehicles.
This increased the volume of scrap cars to enable the industry to meet its 95 per cent recovery target.
