Scotland Scrappage Scheme

Scrap your car in the Low Emission Zone Scotland

With the introduction of Low Emission Zones in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow, the Scottish Government has introduced disposal grants for non-LEZ compliant vehicles. As well as the scrappage scheme offers there is a loan offer also available

Scrappage Scheme Grants

For Households

Households can apply for a £2,000 grant to incentivise the scrapping of a non-LEZ compliant vehicle. This will include an additional offer of up to two £500 mobility grants or Travel Better vouchers for people to purchase a bike, e-bike or public transport voucher.

Low Emission Zone Support Fund for households


For micro-businesses, the fund provides an incentive of a £2,500 grant per car or van to remove a non-compliant vehicle, replace it with a compliant vehicle, or to invest in an alternative mode of transport such as an e-cargo bike.

Low Emission Zone Support Fund for businesses

Used Electric Vehicle Loan

The interest-free Used Electric Vehicle Loan, funded by Transport Scotland (an agency of the Scottish Government) and administered by Energy Saving Trust, offers eligible drivers in Scotland an interest-free loan of up to £30,000 to cover the cost of purchasing a used electric car or van, or up to £5,000 for the purchase of a used electric motorcycle or moped. The loan has a repayment term of up to five years.

Scrapping your non-compliant vehicle

You must not scrap your vehicle until you have received a grant offer letter from Energy Saving Trust confirming your eligibility, otherwise you will not be eligible for funding. Both schemes are administered by the Energy Saving Trust. To find out more about scheme, to see if you’re eligible and to apply for the grants, you should visit their website.

Once you’ve had confirmation of the grant and you’re ready to go ahead, CarTakeBack would be happy to help! We will scrap your old car or van and provide you with the necessary DVLA paperwork as well as paying you a great price for your old car or van.

Great service.

Easy to use, straightforward process to book the collection and receive payment. I'd recommend, especially if you're not able to take your car away yourself.

Very Straightforward and Professional

Very easy and straightforward to use the car buying service. Good prices offered..Good communication. Very professional. Would definitely use the service again.

Prompt reliable no hassle service

Very simple, fair price paid for vehicle, prompt collection and certificate of destruction received promptly. Glad I found them as many other firms won't take very old cars.

5 stars

Very easy to deal with this company, they did every thing they said , payment was within 24 hours. And a good price paid. The collecting driver was very friendly & courteous, altogether an excellent transaction

Thumbs up for cartakeback

Gave me a fair immediate quote. Phoned me the next day to book a collection and the collection happened when I was told. The money was in my bank account by the next working day.

I would highly recommend

An efficient, friendly service. They gave me over £100 more than a 'tatter' had offered me and the money was in my account a couple of hours after the vehicle had been collected. The guy whom collected it was friendly and informative.

Efficient, friendly service. All sorted in a jiffy

Really efficient service. Friendly call to get everything organised. Pickup was prompt and the payment and paperwork came through quickly. Would recommend to anyone

Very pleased

Very efficient and friendly service. Collection man was very cooperative and patient even though we had to keep a medical appointment on the same day as collection.
