HAVING worked in the trade on the Costa Blanca for over ten years the staff at Bradley Breakers could tell a horror story or two about people who thought they had scrapped their “old banger” only to find that the car was still registered many months later.
There are individuals who have faced large fines after the vehicle they thought they’d seen the back of was still driving around.
Unfortunately as long as your name remains on the document of ownership you are legally responsible for that vehicle. Here in Spain the system of scrapping a vehicle is far more complex than anything you are likely to face back in Ireland or the UK.
You also have the added complication of the language barrier so it is imperative that when considering disposing of a vehicle, you use a company in which you have complete trust.
You will find one such company in Bradley Breakers who have recently joined forces with the experienced and extremely reputable Spanish company Autos Deugusces Gomez.
They are experts in the field and they can make the whole process as simple and uncomplicated as you might wish. Simply make the call, they will make you a cash offer for your vehicle and if accepted they will collect on a tow truck from your home.
They will leave you with the necessary legal documentation advising that they have taken ownership of your car and then following its scrapping, you will be issued with the official DGT Certificate (Baja).
Do be aware that if this is something that you are currently considering, you need to ensure that your vehicle is scrapped by 31 December to avoid any further SUMA bills.
Bradley Breakers, who employ over 40 people, also have an impressive new scrapyard consisting of a 20,000 square metre on which they house a 3,000 square metre warehouse in which they store thousands of used parts which they have removed from cars.
All parts are recorded on a computer stock system and attached on racking within the warehouse. You can even buy parts online.
At any one time they also have oven 2,000 cars on site so they will always be able to find that elusive part from a wheel nut to a complete gearbox or an engine.
The new fully legal scrapyard is located just minutes from the AP-7 motorway exit 730 at Catral…….they are sure to be able to help and they can even recommend a reliable local mechanic to help fit the part is needed.
