car disposing

Disposing of a car
Hi, a request for information for a friend please.

She needs to dispose of a very old car, a 27 year old Renault Clio. It still runs and has ITV to December, but the possible income from a sale would not cover the costs of transferring the ownership. That is, she had an offer of 400e, but was then quoted 350e for someone to do all the paperwork for DGT and La Olivia.

She decided to scrap it. She was told there was a scrap yard in Puerto del Rosario, and they take care of notifying DGT and the Council.

However, where is this scrapyard ? Can anyone help please? A Google maps link would be fabulous (she isn't that familiar with the capital and frequently gets lost!).

Not 100% Tom but my best info suggests it is very near The Go Kart Track. There is also one near the ITV station in El Mattoral
To me drinking responsibly means do not spill it.

Yes, at the bottom of the industrial estate in Rosario, level with the go/cart track. instead of going right up to Ideal, go straigh at the roundabout, carry on to the end and turn left, at the bottom on the right down a track

Shouldn't the buyer pay the fees? I think I paid about €180 when I bought my car.

Or just offer it for free, on condition whoever takes it does the paperwork and pays the fees first!

If you walk up the main street in PR,there are some breakdown trucks parked.
On the opposite side of the road there are 2 offices(sorry cannot remember the name).
We went in there and they arranged to pick up the car and scrap it.
We had to sign some papers agreeing for them to scrap it and allow them to utilise any parts at their discretion.
When the ITV and "car tax" were due we produced these papers and that seemed to be more than enough.

Thanks all. The scrapyard is

Desguace Grúas Miguel auto racing
35600 del las, C. Tahona, 19, 35600 Puerto del Rosario, Las Palmas, Spain
Desguace Grúas Miguel auto racing
+34 928 85 16 90

They take care of notifications to DGT and the Council for you and you sign over the car for scrap and recycling.

However, the lady concerned has had an offer for the car (far more than we expected) and the buyer will cover the cost of transferring ownership. He is viewing the car again today and hopefully a deal will be done.

Thanks to Classic for the map and details.
