Frequently Asked Questions About Scrapping a Caravan

If you own a touring caravan that hasn’t been used for years, there is a chance that it will no longer be in a sellable condition. When your caravan sits empty on your driveway or in storage, over time it will suffer a lot of wear and tear, and it will be damaged by the elements. It isn’t uncommon for unused caravans to experience problems with damp and mould, and sometimes the frame will start to rot. If this is the case for your old caravan, you’ve probably thought about scrapping it to get it off your hands and make a little bit of money.

Lots of people don’t realise that scrapping a caravan isn’t as easy as scrapping a car and you will likely need the assistance of a specialist company. Here at Jones Caravans, we buy old unwanted touring caravans and static caravans, and we frequently help people get rid of the leisure vehicles they no longer use. Our caravan removal services make it incredibly easy to scrap your caravan and we can take the vehicle off of your hands.

If you don’t know much about scrapping a caravan, keep reading today. Below we have answered some of the questions we’re frequently asked by our customers.

Where can I scrap my caravan?

Generally speaking, the majority of scrap yards won’t take caravans because they are difficult to dispose of and there is often a lot of waste from leisure vehicles. For this reason, it’s always beneficial to look for a local company that provides caravan removal services. At Jones Caravans, we buy damp, damaged and unused caravans, and we can save you the hassle of trying to find a scrap yard that will accept your caravan.

We even offer an on-site dismantling process for unmovable caravans, so you don’t need to worry about being able to get your caravan to our facility. Whether your touring caravan is fire-damaged or storm-damaged, for example, we can help you.

How much is a scrap caravan worth?

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer to this question and several factors will impact how much a scrap caravan is worth. Typically, everything from the make and model to the age and condition will impact the value of your touring caravan when you’re scrapping it, and our team at Jones Caravans can provide you with a quote.


Will scrap caravans be recycled?

When you contact us at Jones Caravans for assistance with scrapping a caravan, recycling is always at the forefront of our services. We will never simply throw something away and during the dismantling process, we will assess every component of the vehicle. Whenever possible, we will


and put them on the second-hand caravan market. All parts we sell are tested in our NCC-approved workshop to check they meet the requirements of a used product and we will ensure they are completely safe before selling them to the general public.

Any parts that can’t be salvaged will be recycled whenever possible and we will follow strict environmental guidelines when disposing of touring caravans. We will do all we can to limit the amount we send to landfill when people scrap their caravans.

Can scrap caravans be renovated?

Depending on the condition of your caravan, it might not need to be scrapped and our team at Jones Caravans might be able to give your leisure vehicle a new lease of life. We recondition old caravans and as long as your caravan isn’t uneconomical to repair, it’s beneficial to sell it rather than scrap it.
