T25 disposal

Postby getunder » 08 Mar 2009, 12:37

If my ageing van should ever go terminal I would like it to go to a specialist VW breaker rather than a general breaker to whom it would be worth its weight in scrap metal which would be a shame as they would also probably not save the small but essential items that are getting in short supply. How far would a specialist breaker bother to travel to collect an immobile one ? Would I have to pay for it to be taken away ? Could some kind person with the right contacts make a list of specialist breakers for use as a Wiki. It would save an awful lot of time slaving over a hot computer.

I guess the moral is to advertise it in this forum for the enthusiast before trying breakers. Hopefully it and I will last a few more years.

Don't scrap it, get it restored or sell it as a project.
