Are you expecting an influx of MOT failures?

Car Take Back - Car scrappage

Taking the sting out of MOT failures…

Now that the government has announced the COVID-19 MOT extension will end earlier than planned on 31st July 2020, are you likely to end up with cars you need to scrap on behalf of customers?

Scrap car recyclers, are finding MOT centres and garages turning to their service to dispose of MOT failures and cars that are just not worth the repair cost.

After the ‘dangerous’ fault category came into force and drivers found themselves in the position that their MOT failure is not only beyond repair but is illegal to drive away, CarTakeBack saw a way they could step in to help deal with this type of vehicle.

Alison Price from CarTakeBack commented “Whether you recommend us, or use CarTakeBack’s scrap car recycling service yourselves, we can become that extra service to enable you to go above and beyond for your customers. We take away the hassle, and you can guarantee your customers that their scrap cars will be recycled to the highest standards.”
