    Depending what Mini you have and the condition of its parts, there are specialist Mini garages (or indeed, probably any brand of car) that would happily take it off your hands for parts.

    Probably offer you a better rate than a scrapyard.

    My first car was a Mini Clubman and being from Essex I obviously couldn’t stick to factory spec

    Cue highly modded car polished off with four front fogs and fogs in the rear window wired to brakes (which actually meant I could see bugger all in the rear view when I braked.

    Met up with an old Hong Kong friend who has left HK and moved back to London. He exported his car back - not a special car - just a BMW of some kind. However, he said the prices being offered for cars in HK were really low. Reckon's he'd get £10k for it in HK but it's worth £20K in the UK. So paying £5K to have it transported/imported was worth it.

    Yeah I’ve just been helping family pick out a used car in the UK and see prices are still sky high with the new car/chip shortage. The car I sold before I left 4 years ago (2yrs old) is worth at least as much as I sold it for, maybe even a bit more even though now way out of warranty. if transport is now possible for gbp5k it is probably worthwhile for a lot of cars. Presume vat gets applied based on the UK value too though?

    @abcdef apparently the animal charities are super grateful for a donation of a car. Maybe try that if you need. Might be other charities that would accept it too. (sorry if this has been mentioned, no I didn't read 3 pages)
