When my Dad was looking at new cars a salesman was telling him that there are ways around the rules
Here's the scenario he gave
You want to buy a new car & get scrappage discount, but you don't have an old car
Your friend does however & might want rid of their car
You buy the car, but in your friends details with payments from your account. Makes their car eligible to chop in
As soon as the log book arrives with your friend you sign the paperwork over to you
Anyone done it? Or used another way around?
To do this I suppose you do need to trust the other person, and not use the car until you own it.
It's a pain but as I've found some dealers will give extra discount with the scrappage but then become a tight arse as soon as you say you don't have a car to hack in
The government only contribute £1000 don't they? So surely as long as the price is £1000 more it's the same whether you scrap or not or not?
