What should I do with my old car?
I got a quote on we buy any car of £155 for my S reg Fiesta Ghia X. I not sure if I will get more scrapping it and get the insurance and VED refunded.
Its got a 121K on the clock it has the 1.25 was the 1.4 but that went bang it has a bit of a rain water leak into the drive foot well.
Not sure what to do with it?

Depends on the cost of scrap. It fluctuates. I got over £200 for a small Rover. A year or so later about 100 for a Peugeot due to a large reduction.

Ebay is always worth a punt - I got £500 for a non-running Nissan Almera; the guy exported them into Eastern Europe for scrapping. He even let me keep the tax disk.

You won't get more than £100 scrap for that.
Also the quote you get from webuyanycar is not what they will actually offer you on the day, when you take it in the durty burglers will start taking a tenner of for every scratch or ding they can find. I doubt you'll end up with even £100 from them.
Private sale or ebay would be the best way to go if you have the time. It's worth more than £100.

Get it off the road as soon as you can and get the tax disk refunded then stick it on ebay with no tax.

Stick it on eBay. Spares and repairs. Get more than £160 for it?

Go banger racing with it...
You'll still get about £50 for it in weight at the scrappy.

How much tax and MOT is left? There are plenty of people who simply buy a £200-£300 banger to run until it dies. Works out cheap for many.

We buy Any Car offered me £50 pound for my old 1997 Volvo, I could of got more by scrapping it and cashing in the TAX.
In the end I got £460 from ebay buyer , it was well worth it for the condition it was in.

We had a V reg Fiesta, timebelt went. Sold ebay £250 to a guy who wanted the car to put another engine in. EBay's the way.

Remember webuyanycar charge an admin fee as well, £50 on the price you have been offered so you would only get just over £100 if they didn't try and bat you down on price.

I honestly cannot believe anyone sells their car to 'webuyanycar'
Biggest bunch of rip off merchants going. I put them in the same basket as Wonga.

Keep it taked till the 29th, put it on ebay now for a week saying it's taxed.
Make your listing long and precise. factor the tax refund cost.
It will sell.
in the unlikly event it does not sell cash in the tax and relist.

ebay or gumtree - the latter is sometimes easier if you can research what you might get for it.
Definitely not webuyanycar or scrap - after all you can always do that later if you can't sell it, but I bet you will
My son has sold all sorts of rustbuckets, non-runners and goodness knows what on both ebay and gumtree - as long as you are honest about what is wrong it will be fine

Merc C230 ( WBAC.CON ) £160 - Ebay got £660
Volvo V40 ( WBAC.CON ) £115 - Ebay got £630
