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.

For more information and how to apply for the scheme, visit Energy Saving Trust.

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.

A Painless Process

It was simple, quick, and straightforward. Everything worked as it should, and the cash arrived when promised. There were no snags at all, and I would happily recommend them to other sellers, provided the price was right.

A good service all round!

Went as stated….pick up driver had to cancel because of family issue but turned up next day as requested on time….cash went into the back shortly after pick-up, so all in all a good service!

Successful collection

Easy service, came to me to collect the car and the Comms were very good. First pick up didn't go to plan, but the organised a second pick and made all the arrangement to make things easy for myself.

Great and quick.

A very quick response , picked up my car on time and paid as they said they would which was more than any other companies. Would definitely recommend them. Thank you

Very good service

Good price very good service received and money straight in my account from start to finish always was kept in the know contacted by driver before collection

If you sadly have to scrap your car, these guys can help.

It was easy to arrange, good checks in place, very efficient, quick service, and very efficient pick up of my vehicle. I got a better price than from my local 'scappy'. The guy who collected my car also explained to me exactly what would happen to it.
