Should I Fix My Cars Problems Or Scrap?

Fri, 26 Feb 2021 11:26:00

Unfortunately, cars don’t last forever.

And it may come to a point where you’re seriously considering either fixing the damages on your car or whether or not you should just scrap it.

In this article, we’ll take a look at when you should fix and when you should scrap.

When To Fix

The first thing to identify is what’s wrong with the vehicle.

If you’ve got a flat tyre, then more than likely, you’ll want to get the tyre fixed and keep the car.

But if you have an engine problem or a complicated electrical problem, then you may need to weigh up your options.

So firstly, identify the problem and then take a look at the cost.

£50 - £1,000 may be reasonable for you to justify fixing the car. It may be more, it may be less depending on your budgets and how much you value the car.

But if the fix costs just as much as the car or even more, then it may be time to start thinking about scrapping your car.

When To Scrap

As mentioned, when the cost to fix the car is just as much as the current cars’ value or even more, then you may want to consider scrapping the car.

The most common cases for scrapping your car as opposed to selling comes down to the severity of the issue with the car.

Usually, these are issues that are serious and are difficult and expensive to fix.

And you want to make sure you have alternative options available. Especially if your car isn’t drivable or is too dangerous to drive.

Consider a car on loan or a car on lease. Or for the time being a rental car. Until you’re in a position to buy a new car.
