Non runner van UK in Portugal

Hello everyone I have moved back to Portugal from the UK in a Renaul Trafic from 2004, it had no issues until yesterday, it was bought for the move and I used it for a lot more. Is there any business that would collect it and buy it from me? What other options do I have?

Any help would be great, thank you

Vehicle dismantlers (scrapyards) will take it although you are meant to comply with Article 24 of Lei 22-A/2007 and they (scrapyards) should ensure you have the relevant paperwork authorising it (many people and scrapyards don't).

1 - Os veículos que entrem em território nacional e não se destinem a ser matriculados, por se destinarem a desmantelamento, circulação ou permanência em domínio exclusivamente privado, colecionismo ou qualquer outra razão que dispense a atribuição de matrícula nacional devem, no prazo de 10 dias úteis após a entrada em território nacional, ser objeto de apresentação de DAV, sendo os documentos originais do veículo entregues no IMT, I. P., ou nos serviços competentes em matéria de transportes terrestres, no caso das regiões autónomas, no prazo de 10 dias a contar da data de apresentação da DAV.
2 - Os veículos destinados a desmantelamento devem ser reconduzidos diretamente para os centros credenciados para o efeito, ficando os seus proprietários ou legítimos detentores obrigados a enviar às entidades referidas no número anterior, no prazo de 30 dias, o certificado de destruição do veículo.
