Citroen Dispatch

PSA Groupe brands Peugeot and Citroën have joined LCV rivals with a scrappage offer for older part-exchange vehicles.

The two French brands have been a little more generous than most of their rivals, however, by accepting vehicles registered up to 31 December 2010, which is a year newer than most similar schemes.

The allowances are identical for both brands, which makes sense since the models are virtually identical anyway.

The discounts range from £3,000 + VAT on the Citroeën Nemo and Peugeot Bipper vans, up to £7,000 + VAT on selected Citroeën Relay and Peugeot Boxer van models. There are also offers on the Citroën and Peugeot passenger car ranges, which we are covering over at The Car Expert.

The scrappage allowances cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers, so even if you have an eligible part-exchange vehicle, you should check to see if there are any better deals for your circumstances.

The Car Expert examines the fine print

  • This offer is a part-exchange allowance, for selected used vehicles part-exchanged against selected new vans.
  • Your current vehicle can be from any brand, but must have been first registered no later than 31 December 2010. The first registration date is found in your V5C logbook registration document.
  • You must be the owner of the part-exchange vehicle and the buyer of the new van (same name and registered address).
  • You must have owned the old vehicle for at least 90 days (three months), to stop people buying an old banger for £200 and then getting a £7,000 part-exchange allowance for it.
  • The scrappage price is fixed for any vehicle part-exchanged as part of the scheme, not an allowance on top of its value. You are effectively getting nothing for your part-exchange, but a discount on the new van (although it won’t be written that way on the contract).
  • New vehicles must be ordered and registered no later than 31 December 2017.
  • This offer cannot be used on top of any other offers from the dealer, manufacturer or finance company.
  • The offer is not dependent on you taking any finance package or other products.
