Are all the van scrappage schemes the same?
Not at all – each of the van marques involved in 2018 are doing things slightly differently, although each does require you to trade in an older, more polluting vehicle in order to get the scrappage discount.
We’ve highlighted the major points of each scheme below, but you’ll find more info on the individual scrappage pages for each manufacturer.
Ford is offering a variable amount of money off through scrappage, depending on the particular model, with the biggest discount coming on the full-size Transit.
Unlike the 2017 scheme, the discount cannot be combined with other offers. There is also now a discount available on the Ranger pickup, which was previously excluded.
Ford has also committed to not scrapping vehicles listed as ‘historic’ by the DVLA.

LDV is offering a flat rate of £8,500 off the entire V80 range – making an already budget-priced product even cheaper.
However, the deadline is the end of January, and the V80 only meets Euro 5 emissions regulations – whereas every other manufacturer is using scrappage to promote sales of cleaner Euro 6 engines.

The trade-in vehicles will be scrapped, and they must be diesel, meeting Euro 1 to 4 emissions regulations. They can be cars or vans, but they also must have been registered to you for at least six months in order to qualify.
