Our next topic of news within the auto scrap and junk car scrap market focuses on an incentive program implemented in Spain designed to spur new vehicle sales and remove older cars from the roads.
A January 4, 2016 article titled ‘Spain’s car sales rose 21% in 2015 boosted by scrappage program’ on europe.autonews.com told us the following: “Spanish new-car sales rose by 21% in 2015 to 1.03 million, vehicle manufacturers’ association Anfac said on Monday. Registrations increased by 21% to 88,609 in December, Anfac said. A Spanish government-backed subsidy scheme to boost new vehicle acquisitions has helped spur purchases over the last 2 years. In November, the government said it coordinated to renew the incentive for the 8th time stretching it until the middle of this year. Under this scheme, vehicle owners who scrap their cars and buy a new one get 2,000 euros, 50% of which is provided by the government and 50% from the automaker.” The complete article is available here.
Apparently this car scrapping program designed to boost new vehicle sales has been revised on several occasions. A July 2014 article on wardsauto.com by Jorge Palacios provided us the following information: “The new program closes a loophole in prior versions of the plan. To scrap a car it must be at least 10 years old, or for a light-commercial vehicle at least 7 years old and must show current proof of ownership. It was discovered many of the transactions in earlier schemes involved vehicles that had languished in junkyards for years.” The story is available in its entirety at this link.
This salvage vehicle trade-in plan is very similar to the “cash for clunkers” model that was used in the US several years ago. Essentially, the new car dealer acts as a salvage car buyer and junk car scrap site for those willing to trade in the old vehicle toward the purchase of a new one. The US government heavily subsidized this program and the reviews were mixed in the overall effectiveness of this program.
