Customers Say Goodbye To Their Old Cars

For most of us it’s either a cause for celebration or commiseration when we scrap our old cars and vans. CarTakeBack customers have sent in their photos and told us if they’re sad or glad to say goodbye to their old vehicle, and why!

Before you say goodbye to your old car – Don’t forget to send us a photo!

“Today, I said goodbye to an old and loyal friend. We have been through so much together, from first dates (with my now wife), to numerous house moves and significant journeys. Never once did you let me down, and you bailed me out of trouble on countless occasions. You never failed to start and did more than was ever asked of you. My life won’t be the same without your reassuring presence. If you have a car to scrap, CarTakeBack UK take all the hassle out of it. Super easy and caring service with great communication.”

“Bye bye C-Max. A very hard-working little car it was too – seen us through a lot. Am actually quite sorry to see it go. Thanks very much to the guy who came to collect it. He had such a nightmare trying to get it loaded up as a result of the two slashed tyres! But he was really good-humoured the whole time. 👍🏻⭐️
