Reasons To Scrap Your Jeep
There are various reasons as to why your Jeep may be scrapped. We understand that you are scrapping your precious vehicle can be difficult and that you may want to look for alternatives, such as selling or repairing it. But if this has proven itself to be a challenge it may be time to accept that your Jeep needs to be recycled. Some of the most common reasons to recycle your vehicle include:
MOT Failure: Your car has failed its MOT; ultimately deeming it as unworthy. Not only can you can no longer drive your Jeep, you can’t even sell it to make some extra money! Now you’ve decided that you want to recycle your car but can’t take it to the scrap yard because it’s now unfit to drive, then there’s no need to worry. We will collect your vehicle from you and remove it at the scrap yard ourselves.
Old or Rusted Jeep: Inevitably the older your vehicle is, the harder it is to sell. Buyers ultimately want newer products and makes of Jeep, which is probably why you’re struggling to sell your old/rusted car. In addition, rusted and ageing cars are easier to damage and will therefore need repairs. They can also often be dangerous to drive. For this reason potential buyers will look for new Jeep models instead. Therefore we advise you scrap your car with us for a bit of money.
Damaged Jeep: Perhaps you’ve damaged your Jeep in a collision and now you have the choice of either spending a large amount of money on repairs or earning some quick money by scrapping it with us! Before you decide to scrap your car, your insurance company will need to assess its salvage value and then consider whether it’s a write-off and needs to be scrapped.

Jeeps: Big History, Big Vehicles, Big Drawbacks
Jeeps come packaged with a lot of history. The original Jeep was built in 1941 for the US army as an all-terrain reconnaissance vehicle. In 1945, the first civilian Jeep entered the market, but the brand didn’t gain a foothold in the UK until the 1990s with the development of the right-hand drive Cherokee.
A must-have for the urban school run until fuel prices became prohibitive, the boxy styling of the Cherokee now looks like something from a different age. When it was first imported to the UK in 1993, the iconic 5-door four-wheel-drive estate was offered with a 4.0 litre 6-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. This was rapidly followed by a Sport variant with a manual gearbox.
Three turbo diesel models were produced from 1995, each of which had a 2.5 litre engine and manual transmission. A second-generation Cherokee arrived on the market in 1997 with a different interior and face-lifted front and rear. Called the Jeep Liberty in the USA, third- and fourth- generation Cherokees were introduced to the UK in 2001 and 2008 respectively.
Major quibbles with the Cherokee are the cramped accommodation for rear passengers and the surprisingly small luggage space. Jeep drivers dreaming of more space were excited by the Grand Cherokee after its UK debut in 1995. This luxury 4×4 was specifically built to transport four people and boasted a high-specification interior.
Though bigger than its little brother, the Grand Cherokee is no slouch. With a 4.0 litre engine under the bonnet, 0-60 mph takes under 10 seconds on the way to a top speed of 112 mph. For those who want even more power, the second generation – introduced in 1999 – offers a 4.7 litre v8 engine. Unsurprisingly, fuel economy suffers, with a return of well under 20 mpg.
As your Jeep gets older, it will need more and more replacement parts, which must be imported from the US. The ageing Jeep is therefore a pricey prospect. More serious, though, is the questionable safety of Jeeps with fuel tanks mounted behind the rear axle. A feature of the Grand Cherokees manufactured between 1993 and 2004 and the Liberty (aka Cherokee) between 2002 and 2007, the rear-mounted fuel tank is more likely to rupture in a crash and catch fire.
You may love your ageing Jeep, but even the most besotted owner can’t deny that the object of their affections is expensive to run and repair. Worst of all, your Cherokee or Grand Cherokee could jeopardise your safety in an accident. Scrap Car Kings are the experts at recycling Jeeps.
