How to scrap a car

Postby fearless nige » Mon Oct 05, 2009 7:45 pm

Having recently bought a replacement car, our old Peugeot 306 is now headed for the garage in the sky. There is an old thread on here that went into this a bit, but may be out of date as it's over 5 years old. In short, can anybody tell me how to go about scrapping a car and the paperwork involved? Thanks. (it's a fully spanish vehicle)

Hi

If you have a local scrap yard they will do all the necessary bookwork. Simply take the car with all its paperwork, your NIE & Empadron (or residencia) passport for backup (all with photocopies - this is Spain) and there should be no probs

dave, before you scrap it, is it still road worthy? you´ll get nothing for it at the scrap yard. deliver it to mine and i´ll pay to change the paperwork ... ???

bring it up, i´ll pay the transfer into my name(200€ more or less), but you´ll have to pay the road tax first (under 50€) (cant do a transfer without up to date road tax) what does it need for itv, and why didn´t you get it done ?

Had a problem before with the itv, it passed first time but the emissions were highish, in fact the guy did it twice then it was OK. drivers side window sticking. nothing else really just needs a tidy up, I didn't bother as I bought another car.
