Is your car ready for the scrapheap?

Consider BEN’s ‘Give a Scrap’ scheme

Is your car facing the scrapheap? If you can’t justify keeping your old car on the road and there is no possibility of it passing an MOT then you might consider BEN’s ‘Give a Scrap’ scheme. The ‘Give a Scrap’ scheme, operated by BEN in association with ‘Charity Car’, offers an ethical and hassle free way to dispose of your old car whilst turning it into a valuable  cash donation to BEN, the automotive industry charity.

Even better there is an opportunity to win a brand new Mitsubishi Mirage if you scrap your car before December 14th, all you need to do is visit the web site  enter a few details and request collection free of charge by Cartakeback. They will arrange disposal, complete the necessary DVLA paperwork and issue a Certificate of Destruction, freeing you of all liability and confirming the vehicle has been disposed of legally.

BEN’s Commercial Development Manager, Nigel Williams said ‘our ‘Give a Scrap’ scheme is a much-needed opportunity for people to dispose of their unwanted cars simply, legally and charitably. I’m confident this scheme will become more and more popular but the added incentive of a prize car promotion will definitely increase awareness. If you know anyone who might be interested in ‘Give a Scrap’ please pass on the web address.’

If you are the lucky winner of the new Mitsubishi Mirage then you will have a five door stylish hatchback on your drive. It is the lightest and most aerodynamic plus efficient petrol powered hatchback range on the market and the most remarkable feature of the new Mirage is that it is the only model in the UK today to offer 100g/km CO2 or less across the whole range, resulting in zero Vehicle Excise Duty and no London Congestion Charge.

The stylish new car Mirage offers fantastic specification and at a great price, the Mirage 1.0L is priced from £8999. Specification includes 14” Steel wheels with wheel colours, front electric windows, side air bags, tyre repair kit, front accessory socket, AM/FM radio/CD player with two speakers, glovebox USB terminal and stability and traction control.
