How to dispose/trash/recycle used car?

Hello,

We have to finally say good bye to our first car. It seems like we have to spend a fortune to keep it on road. Is there a place like a scrap yard where they accept such cars without we having to pay for it.

Thanks

Anu

I'm not sure a good thrashing will work in this case

That's what we did too. Just took it to the place it usually got serviced (in fact it had to be towed there...) and they got rid of it. No idea what they did with it, but the never charged us for it.

Look in your local "Käseblatt" (municipal newspaper). There is usually at least one advertisement for someone with an 079 number who buys cars for cash. As mentioned above, they are for export, and usually will net you a few crisp 100s, if you're lucky. Just be sure to make a simple bill of sale and cancel the plates and insurance before it's picked up.

The local garage is definitely the easier way to go.

i took my very old golf here last year (it is near Winterthur and just got the S8 back) and they disposed of it for free - spoke a bit of English too.

Car scrappage Basel

My car engine died last week. I feel it's not worth repairing as I hardly use it since movng to Basel. Can anyone recommend car dismantlers in Basel or over the border in Lorrach/Weil am Rhein as my car is in a garage there.
Many thanks
