ScrAppit friendly guide to scrapping and deregistering your car
So, you’ve received bad news that your
car has failed its latest WOF due to rust hidden away underneath the bonnet. Oh
no! You get a few quotes and realise the cost to fix your broken car is more
than double what it is worth.
If you decide the easiest, most
cost-effective and least time-consuming way is to sell to a car wrecker then
you will want the best price possible, right?
Years ago, this process was very
frustrating. It would involve calling around different yards for quotes,
explaining the vehicle details over and over, then have several wreckers come
to view it, only to have them negotiate on their original quote.
Luckily for you, times have changed. Now,
there is ScrAppit.
ScrAppit is the free online marketplace
for scrap cars. With a few simple steps, you can list your car on our site,
then carry on with your day while you receive quotes from wrecked directly to
SListing with ScrAppit is really easy. In
just three simple steps, you could have money for your scrap car.
Here's how it works...

description and photos.
ScrAppit will automatically send the information
out to their nationwide database, who will then send you quotes directly to
If you see a quote you are happy with, simply click to accept and book a
collection. It is as easy as that! And you can do it all from the same site.
The Next Step - Deregister Your Car
Ok, now you have accepted a quote and
booked collection, now it is time to deregister your car. This effectively
means that you are alerting NZTA and the other authorities that your car will
no longer be on the road. Now you don't have any registration costs to pay.
Here's what to do...
Remove the number plates from the vehicle
Remove the registration license tag from the windscreen
Take the number plates and license tag to any AA, VTNZ, VINZ. (NZ
Post does no longer provide this service)
Hand this in along with the number plates and license card. There will
be a $9.10 processing fee. Any outstanding registration fees or road user
charges will need to be settled at the same time.
If you are lucky enough to have remaining registration or Road User Charges,
New Zealand Transport Agency will reimburse you via cheque. This will be sent
in the mail to the registered owner's address. Alternatively, you can contact NZTA Motor Registrations on 0800 108 809 and request this be
deposited into your Bank account.
