Q: How long does the scheme last?

A: The Toyota (GB) scrappage scheme runs until March 31st 2019.

Q: Do I need to own a Toyota to qualify?

A: No you don’t. The scheme is open to any car or light commercial vehicle so long as it is more than seven years old and you have been the registered owner of the vehicle for more than six months.

Q: Can I trade in my motorcycle or motorhome as part of the scheme?

A: No, the scheme only applies to cars and light commercial vehicles.

Q: Are Diesel vehicles applicable for the scheme?

A: Yes, there is no restriction on fuel type on your trade in vehicle.

Q: How much money is the scheme worth to me?

A: The value of the trade-in does depend on which Toyota model you want to buy. This table above shows the maximum amount against each model.

Q: Are there any Toyota models excluded from the offer?

A: While each model is available on the scheme, certain grades are excluded (mostly because of availability). Contact us for full details about the scheme and the model availability and grades included.

Q: Can I use the scheme as well as other, existing Toyota offers?

A: The scrappage allowance offer can be used in conjunction with the Finance APRs but not available with any other customer saving programme, Free Servicing offer or finance deposit allowance. Please contact us about your exact requirements.

Q: What happens to my old car after it is traded in?

A: In accordance with the law concerning scrappage schemes, your trade-in will need to be professionally disposed of so that it cannot go on the road again. We go to great lengths to make sure your car is scrapped in the greenest possible way, with everything which can possibly be recycled being extracted by experts (we partner with a company called Autogreen to achieve this). We will handle all of this for you.

All vehicles taken off the road through the Toyota scrappage scheme will be processed at authorised treatment facilities managed by Autogreen. After the safe removal of all pollutants and the recovery of retrievable parts, shredding and recovery will be handled by EMR. Together, these processes will meet the legal requirement of a minimum 95 per cent recycling by vehicle weight.
