Wilmoths is participating in a superior scrappage scheme launched by Citroën and DS Automobiles that goes further than other makes’ schemes by including vehicles registered up to December 31 st 2010, a year newer than any rival.

The idea is to encourage customers to replace older, less efficient cars and vans with new, modern and more efficient Euro 6 Citroën and DS models.

Customers who have owned a car or van of any make and model for more than 90 days, which was originally registered before 31 December, 2010, can trade it in and receive a scrappage allowance of between £1,600 and £6,400 (incl. VAT) off the price of selected new petrol or diesel-powered Citroën cars, and between £3,000 and £7,000 (excl. VAT) against the purchase price of selected new Citroën panel vans. To qualify for the Citroën Scrappage Scheme, all new Citroën vehicles must be ordered and registered by 31 December 2017.

All vehicles part-exchanged under the scheme will be scrapped and recycled by CarTakeBack™, the Citroën brand’s approved vehicle car recycling partner in the UK.

Vehicles recycled by CarTakeBack™ are treated in an environmentally friendly manner, with all hazardous materials such as oil, batteries and tyres being disposed of responsibly. Processing by CarTakeBack™ will ensure that a DVLA Certificate of Destruction (COD) is issued for every vehicle recycled through the scheme.

The Citroën Scrappage Scheme cannot be used in conjunction with any other existing customer offer. However, retail customers will be able to benefit from dedicated Elect 3 PCP finance at 6.9% APR over 37 or 48 months. The Citroën Scrappage Scheme will be marketed nationally and will be available at participating dealers.
