Which Vehicles Get Scrapped the Most?

which vehicles get scrapped the most

We recently made a post on our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram) listing the top 10 most stolen vehicles of 2021. Well, we are definitely list lovers over here at More Cash For Scrap, so he is another great list for you. Since scrapping cars is what we do, we thought it only fitting to dig deep and find out the data about car scrapping statistics, and which makes and models get recycled the most, and here’s what we found.

The Most Scrapped Car Brand in 2021

Ford Focus Family Hatchback is the #1 most scrapped vehicle of all of 2021. In fact, Ford made the top ten list of most scrapped cars for 2021 several times with the Ford Focus, the Ford Fiesta, and the Ford Mondeo. Not only are older Ford model vehicles being scrapped more frequently than any other vehicle, they’ve been doing so for the past few years as the Focus has been the most scrapped vehicle for 5 years running. If you’re thinking of buying a used Ford vehicle, make sure it’s not a Focus hatchback, Fiesta, or Mondeo and if it is, be sure to do your research on the vehicle’s history.

Here is the complete list of the top 10 most scrapped vehicles of 2021 globally (which is why there are car brands on here you may not even recognize).

  1. Ford Focus
  2. Vauxhall Astra
  3. Vaushall Corsa
  4. Ford Fiesta
  5. Volkswagen Golf
  6. Renault Clio
  7. Vauxhall Zafira
  8. Peugot 206
  9. Volkswagen Polo
  10. Ford Mondeo

For those of you in North America, you may only be in possession of one of the Ford vehicles or Volkswagens. But if you are an owner of any of these vehicles, especially older models, it may be time to scrap your car for cash like many of the above car owners did in 2021.

It doesn’t just have to be an older vehicle when you’re considering scrapping your car. We do scrap car removal for many people whose cars aren’t even that old, but have suffered catastrophic engine or transmission failure. Other types of newer vehicles we buy as scrap cars are cars that have been in a big accident and now have major body damage or a bent frame, or newer vehicles that have things like big electrical issues that no one could ever get to the bottom of. There are lots of reasons to scrap your car with a licensed and professional scrap car removal company like More Cash For Scrap. Give us a call today to see if your vehicle is considered a scrap car, and if it is, how much we’ll pay you for it.

BC Hydro SCRAP-It Program

If you decide to scrap your car, and are thinking of trading up into an electric vehicle, you should check out the BC Hydro Scrap-It Program. They offer a wide range of incentives and rebates for getting your older vehicle off the road when you move into an electric or hybrid vehicle. There are stipulations, however, so if you don’t meet some of their criteria, you can contact us and we’ll buy your scrap vehicle for MORE cash, like always.

Here are the details of the SCRAP-It program, before you head off to the dealership to buy the cheapest electric or hybrid vehicle you can. As mentioned before, there are specific criteria you need to meet to cash in on the rebate, and if you don’t, you can call us.

  • The vehicle you are scrapping must have been insured for at least 6 months prior to scrapping it. So, if you’ve had a car sitting on your property for a few years without insurance, it doesn’t qualify for SCRAP-It, but it qualifies for us.
  • If the vehicle is from 2002 or newer, and gets decent gas mileage, it also doesn’t qualify for the SCRAP-It program. Their main focus is to take bad vehicles off the roads, not average ones. This is why professional scrap car buyers like us can be extremely helpful at getting you cash for your older vehicle.
  • Not all makes and models of electric and hybrid vehicles qualify for the program. Anything over $55,000 does not qualify, plus there are other specifics. Check out the list of participating dealerships on the BC Hydro website at Scrapping your car could earn you $6,000 towards an electric car (bchydro.com).
  • There are a lot of rebates that have been issued to consumers in 2021 and 2022, but like anything that is government funded, funding could run out. They are projecting that this particular funding could run out by fall of 2022, so after scrapping your vehicle and heading to the dealership, you could find yourself not even able to take advantage of the rebate you had been hoping for.

If you’ve got a junk car or even just an older used vehicle that you’re wanting to sell, but it doesn’t fall into the criteria prerequisites of the SCRAP-It program, or you simply weren’t offered what you were hoping for it, call us and find out what we’d be willing to pay you for your vehicle. We offer same day pickup, we take care of all the paperwork, we provide instant quotes over the phone, and we always pay MORE cash than anyone else!
