The government is considering the ban of all petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040 as we move into a more sustainable, electric driven world. Whilst this is many years away, many car manufacturers are doing their part in order to help cut air pollution in the short term. Whilst mainly targeting older diesel vehicles, which are the most polluting, many manufacturers are banding all older vehicles together, no matter the fuel type, in order to get drivers into a newer, cleaner vehicle. That's where the scrappage schemes come in. These act as incentives or "rewards" to customers who opt to change their vehicle for one less polluting and bagging a great discount in the meantime.


Scrappage schemes favour older cars, and in terms and value for money, the older the better. No matter the age of the vehicle, as long as it's registered before a certain date, a manufacturer will give you a set amount against a new car. In turn, you can use this as a finance deposit, which can bring your monthly payments down to very affordable levels, making a new car more accessible than you might think.

It is worth noting though that the amount on offer can vary by model and Scrappage offers are not often available across the a full manufacturers range. Different manufacturers also have different trade-in criteria, so where you might be eligible for one offer, you may not for another.


All Scrappage offers have been extended until March 2018. All schemes require that the new vehicle is contracted before the end of March, but some franchises are extending the delivery date until later in the year. Read the terms and conditions of each of the manufacturer offers as these do vary.


Here at Birchwood Group, we represent four franchises; Ford, ŠKODA, Kia and Mitsubishi. All of the manufacturers we offer have their own different Scrappage scheme; Plus, as a multi-franchise dealership group, we also offer our very own Birchwood Group Scrappage deal.
