Urgent help required required scrapping UK car

Urgent help required. My UK car blew its turbo or something worse this morning emitting clouds of smoke over the turkish hills. I have decided that I do not want to get it repaired and I would rather scrap it rather than repair it. I think it was a Friday afternoon one and I am sick of throwing money at it. 2008 peugeot 307cc. Diesel.
It will just about start but is rattling like hell. How / where do I take it to scrap it. We are 120 kms the Istanbul side of Izmir near Dikilli. I don't even know if I can get it as far as Izmir which is where I presume the nearest customs are.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

You will need to hand it in to customs in Izmir. I would contract a tow service (Kurtarici in Turkish), get a price before they take you even if it is a price per km. The Turkish Turing club may be able to help. http://www.turing.org.tr/iletisim/
You will find a kutartici on most industrial sites (Sanayi). If you are desperate geta taxi to take you to one. Good luck.

If you change your mind work on cars here is cheap, they will find a second hand part easily.

Re: Urgent help required required scrapping UK car

Thanks for that I have breakdown assistance and presumably they would tow it there if I cannot make it under my own steam. Whereabouts are the customs located in Izmir ?
Do you know what they charge. ?

Re: Urgent help required required scrapping UK car

It is in the centre at the port (Liman in Turkish). I do not know how much they charge. If you need to stay the night there I would head to basmane (close to the railway station). When I lived there (34 years ago) there was a Turkish Turing club office very close to the port.

Re: Urgent help required required scrapping UK car

You need someone with a bit of Turkish knowledge at Izmir Port, had three dealings with them. First time I learnt the hard way, thereafter I had someone with me. If your not careful you can pay on the quayside, instead of the office with a receipt.

Re: Urgent help required required scrapping UK car

Many thanks for that. ALIAGA is our nearest port. I will ask there first. You never know.

Aliage will not have a customs office able to accept a car, it is a port primarily for petrochemicals/oil/gas, but feel free to try it. Personally i would have it towed to a car sanayi in Izmir and get a quote for the repair. You do not have to go ahead, you can still take it to the customs at the port. I would not do any of this on a Sunday though. Monday is your first window. Good luck
