Car scrapping

Hi all,

In Geneva area..

My Renault Scenic 2003 on foreign plates drives but has a number of things that need to be fixed.
Does anyone know who might buy it for parts or for scrap? Alternatively, a mechanic who might fix it for less than 800 chf?

Thanks in advance

H

Re: Car scrapping

You have to take it back to the country where it's registered to scrap it or sell it.

Otherwise, you have to import it first to do so here.

(I just hauled back a scooter from Italy to junk here for the same reason, as I had been using it there on a Swiss plate until I cancelled it when they called it in for MFK two years ago)

Re: Car scrapping

Without any details, what needs to be replaced , it is not possible, to
make a statement.
Did you get a quotation from a mechanic already ?
Do this over the border in france as well ........

Re: Car scrapping

I am just over the border in France. The car cannot be driven back to its country of origin.

Main issues are:


-Back seat mountings are bad or not done right (May mean the seatbelts).
-Right exhaust/silencer is not mounted correctly
-Some vent or valve on LPG tank seems to be missing.
-Some leakage in the LPG gas system

Thanks

Re: Car scrapping

Blow it up, after removing all VIN number plates.

Re: Car scrapping

In the other thread you said it passed M.O.T. in Albania.
Sell it to an Albanian who can take it back there again

Legal to do in CH on private land even on a Sunday. I did this for a film, Police scratched their heard when we asked for permission as there is no law preventing such a thing
