Renault announced that it will collaborate with CERO for vehicle scrapping services. The news comes the day after Mahindra signed an (MoU) with Mahindra MSTC Recycling Pvt Ltd (MMRPL) towards offering its customers a first-of-its-kind, end-to-end solution for scrapping vehicles under the brand name CERO. Renault’s new “R.E.L.I.V.E” program allows car buyers to ditch their old vehicle for a new one under one roof. This eliminates the hassle of visiting your local RTO or scrappage agency.
Speaking on the announcement, Venkatram Mamillapalle, country CEO and managing director, Renault India Operations, said, “We are extremely confident that this partnership will ensure a hassle-free experience for the customers and adoption of better technology and promote safety on the Indian roads in a scientific and environment-friendly manner.”
Renault has rolled out the programme for its customers in six locations, including Delhi NCR, Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, and Bangalore.
What’s the process for Renault’s scrapping services?
Your old vehicle will be evaluated for a fair scrapping/exchange value.
Post evaluation, the vehicle will be sent to CERO for dismantling and scrapping.
A certificate of destruction with the vehicle’s value will be provided to the customer.
CERO and Renault will also be responsible for de-registering the vehicle at the RTO.
The certificate of destruction makes you eligible for benefits (of the scrapped vehicle’s value) on the purchase of a new Renault. Renault will also be offering the exclusive channel for scrapping old two-wheelers.
Mahindra Intertrade Managing Director Sumit Issar said it has set up dismantling centers at Greater Noida, Pune, and Chennai and collection centers in major cities such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, and Chandigarh.
“Further, CERO has plans to have a presence in 25 cities within the next 8-10 months. The arrangement with Renault is going to strengthen the reach and benefit all Renault vehicle customers and prospects who are looking for solutions for scrapping their old vehicles,” he added.
