The top 10 reasons why Warrington residents scrap their cars
Warrington has come a long way since its roots as the heart of the industrial revolution. Unlike other towns, the end of that revolution didn't stop it from growing, and it now has a population of just over 207,500 people. As the largest town in Cheshire, there are plenty of different reasons why locals are selling their cars for scrap. Here is the top ten.
The running costs are too expensive
The good thing about getting a second-hand car in Warrington is that it's one of the cheapest parts of the country for used cars. It's not cheap to keep them running though. Higher than the national average, drivers in Warrington are paying around £561 a year on insurance premiums. That fact that only 47% of the population is in full-time employment, so it's not hard to see just why so many locals are choosing to get cash for scrap cars in Warrington. Instead of spending money, they are making some! While many of the local motorists that sell their cars to scrap yards in Warrington use the money to buy a cheaper car to run, others are keeping hold of the cash and using it on alternative ways of getting out and about. So why not get some fast cash for your car, and with the top prices paid for scrap.
You want a hassle-free way of selling your car
Warrington might have been named as the second-best place to live in the whole of the UK, and the locals have been repeatedly named as being in the top 10 happiest in the country, but that doesn't mean that you'll notice that when you try and sell a car. In Warrington, it is worse trying to sell a car simply because the average price of a used car is so low. So, not only are you competing on price with other private sellers, but you're also competing against local car dealerships. That means you're going to have to ask a lower price for your car and still have to deal with hagglers and timewasters. Tired of wasting time and coping with the car-buying public, Warrington residents are instead getting a quick, convenient sale by selling to scrap dealers in Warrington. They're even having the paperwork filled out by us, for free!
You find public transport preferable
Although Warrington is a large town, it's very well serviced by the local public transport links. With five train stations that can get you anywhere in the country and a bus service that's hard to beat, it's no wonder that so many locals are ditching their cars and sticking to public transport travel instead. There's a higher rate of households without access to a car in Warrington than the national average, with 21.8% in urban areas lacking private transport. That's because the cost of travelling by bus or train is considerably cheaper and less stressful than driving, owning, and continually paying out for an old car. Whether you live in a more rural part of the town or slap bang in the town centre, you could be saving a fortune by getting cash for scrap cars in Warrington and using the money to get a lot more miles (and all without the stresses of driving!).
The car has failed its MOT
Close connections to some major road routes (including the M62), as well as a high number of used car dealerships in the town, means that second-hand cars in Warrington are considerably cheaper than anywhere else in the UK. However, not all of those used cars are fit to drive, and we see this in the fact that 32% of all cars in the town that go in for an MOT will fail. Although that's lower than the 35% average for the rest of the country, it still means a lot of cars need more money spent on them just to be able to drive. It used to be very hard to sell a car without an MOT in Warrington, but we can help. Not only will we pay you the top prices for an MOT-less vehicle, but we'll also come and collect it for free.
You could use the money for other things
Although roughly 78% of locals in Warrington are employed, only 47% of those workers are working full-time hours. Of those that have managed to find full-time work, 25% work more than 45 hours a week. That means a poor work/life balance, even if you can find a full-time position. Warrington is joined by Sunderland and Swansea when it comes to population debt levels of 21%, meaning that economic shocks and unexpected bills can have long-term consequences that can take months or even years to recover from. Paydays loans are one option to consider when you need some quick cash, but these come with a wide range of risks and additional debt issues. Now, locals are finding that they can get paid immediately by our expert scrap metal dealers in Warrington. With free car collection, it couldn't be easier to get access to some emergency money when you need it the most.
Your car’s no longer safe to drive
Ranked as the 7th best place to buy a used car in the UK, the cars of Warrington are cheap, and don't have excessive amounts of mileage. Older cars are never going to be as reliable as something newer. Of course, all cars are vulnerable to the ravages of time, and continuous use means constant wear and tear. While that's not an issue when it's minor scratches on the paintwork or a faulty lock on your boot, it starts to become a problem when those minor issues start affecting your ability to drive safely. Worn tyres, old brake pads, and dodgy suspension all increase your chances of being in an accident, so every time that you start the engine, you're putting everyone at risk. To avoid those dangers, locals are upgrading to newer, safer cars by selling even badly damaged cars in Warrington and using the immediate payments to buy something more reliable.
Your car is costing you a fortune to maintain
When only 47% of the Warrington population is in full-time employment, money management is essential in the town. While Warrington has some of the cheapest second-hand cars in the UK, it also means a lot of those old cars are going to need regular maintenance if they are to remain safe and if they want to stand a fighting chance to pass an MOT. Warrington might have a low cost of living, but that doesn't mean locals can afford to keep on throwing money at an old car. When you need a month's worth of wages to keep on using your car, it makes sense to examine your options, and it's those high maintenance costs that are causing more locals than ever to get cash for scrap cars in Warrington. Some use the money to invest in a new car, others realise that they can use alternative ways of getting around.
Scrap a car if it's not being used
In the more urban parts of the town, almost 22% of households don't even have a car. That's testament to the excellent public transport and the proximity of the shopping options. However, that leaves 88% of the town's households who own a car but aren't using it as often as they might, especially when they don't need to. You still have to pay insurance and road tax, even if you haven't used your car in a month and it is just sitting on a drive or in a garage. While some drivers will declare a car as SORN when they realise, they aren't going to use it for a while, that still means paying to have the SORN removed when you do need to drive somewhere. For locals not using their cars, many are realising that rather than spending money, they can be getting cash for scrap cars in Warrington instead.
Your car is written off
When 1.71 billion vehicle miles are driven on the roads of Warrington every year, combined with the fact that the A49 that links Warrington to Chester is considered the most dangerous stretch of road in the county. Boxed in by three very busy motorways means that traffic flow is constant at all times of the day, seven days a week. Vehicle collisions can happen at any time, and they are never a good thing. Even once any injuries have been treated, you still have the problem of sorting out your old car. If it's been damaged to the point where the cost of repairs is more than you spent on buying the car, then that spending is pointless. Rather than throwing money away, you can now sell that wreck to our scrap dealers in Warrington, and if your car is so damaged that it won't drive, our free car collection will make the process stress-free.
You’re looking for a part-exchange
When cars in Warrington can be such a bargain, with the town being named the 7th best place in the UK to buy a used vehicle, part-exchanges are common. The problem is that because cars in the town are up to 22% cheaper than the national average, there is a lot of local competition on prices. That means car dealerships (of which there are many in the town) want a bargain, so you will always end up with less value for your car than you expected. The more damaged your car or, the more problems there are with it, the less you'll get, meaning that the car you do want is suddenly out of financial reach. To avoid this consistent problem, drivers are selling their old cars to scrap dealers in Warrington, so that they can head straight to a car dealership knowing exactly what their budget is and getting better deals as a result.

The benefits to car recycling in Warrington
Warrington went through a boom period during the industrial revolution, but it didn't slow down even once the revolution was over. It continued to grow to become the thriving town that it is today. When locals sell their old cars in Warrington, they aren't just getting the best prices in the town. They're also getting some additional benefits that they might not have considered.
Good for the environment
Everyone is more responsible when it comes to their environmental impact, and locals in Warrington are no different. That's partly due to the easy accessibility of so much green and natural space. Currently, Warrington has 12 green spaces with Green Flag awards, and the local presence of great crested newts, bats, and water voles means that there are a lot of habitats and natural beauty to enjoy. Risley Moss and Rixton Claypits are also protected because they are Sites of Special Scientific Interest. If you use a scrap yard that isn't an Authorised Treatment Facility, there is a much higher chance of your old car being sent to a landfill site, and that can be catastrophic for the local environment. When you use a Scrapi.com partner to recycle a car in Warrington, you know that it will be disposed of responsibly and that as much of it can be reused will be.
When you use a scrap yard in Warrington that isn't part of our network, then you will tend to find that they simply crush your old vehicle and send it straight to a landfill site. That's bad news for the environment, for you, and for the local economy. For every tonne of waste that gets sent to landfill sites, the local council has to pay Landfill Tax, and that's money that could be better spent elsewhere on local schemes and improvements. So, it makes sense to only use dedicated and professional breakers yards in Warrington. They have the expertise and experience to make sure that your car is disposed of both responsibly and in a way that benefits your bank balance the most.
Job creation and employment benefits
Currently, the town ranks fifth in the UK for high-skilled private-sector job roles and has been named as one of the most likely locations for mass-scale automation. When you recycle a car in Warrington, you are helping local businesses to keep their costs down because they no longer have to look further afield for the materials that they need. That means faster business growth and more opportunities to create new employment opportunities. As all of the Scrapi.com breakers yards in Warrington are Authorised Treatment Facilities, you know that when you sell us a car, it will be used to help boost the future of the town.
Helping local drivers
When as much of your car is as recycled as possible, you are also doing your part to help other local motorists. Thanks to the fact that cars in the town are around 22% cheaper than the rest of the UK, there are a lot of old cars out there that need spare parts if they want to pass an MOT or continue to be safe. By having access to the spare parts that they need, locals can keep their cars going for longer. It's not just longevity either. Although air quality in Warrington is generally good, it is still an issue on the main roads of the town. You can help reduce that problem when you recycle a car in Warrington. When local car owners have access to the spare parts that make their cars more fuel-efficient and less harmful to the environment, our Authorised Treatment Facilities are playing a significant role in helping to improve the future of the town, boosting the bank balances of local drivers, and helping locals make some good money at the same time.
Car scrap yards in Warrington
There are a lot of scrap yards in Warrington, largely due to its location between Liverpool and Manchester. The problem is that not all of those scrap yards are the same, and not all of them are partnered with Scrapi.com.
Authorised Treatment Facilities
Every single scrap yard that makes up the national Scrapi.com network is an Authorised Treatment Facility, and that includes those in Warrington. That means that all of the salvage yards that we partner with in the town will not just ensure that you get the top scrap metal prices in Warrington, but also means that you get the satisfaction of knowing that your old car is going to be disposed of in a way that is both responsible and economically proactive. It also means that you won't get scrap metal prices in Warrington that are based on the whims of exploitative scrap yards who simply want to get your car for the lowest price and who will add some additional fees at the last minute. To have a more hassle-free and professional service where the price you're quoted is the price you get, then using only the best salvage yards in Warrington is essential.
A professional service
An unprincipled and inexperienced scrap yard owner will always be the bane of the industry. They will offer low prices and bad advice, and that advice can often get you in trouble with the law. They don't tend to have the necessary industry knowledge, so they'll tell you it's fine to drive a car with a SORN to their yards, and they'll often even offer to pay you a better deal for cash-in-hand. This is simply breaking the law ever since the launch of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act of 2013.
The Scrapi.com car and van scrap yards in Warrington not only know every facet of the trade but also offer the service you need to keep you protected
