How to Junk Your Car

Do you have an old car that sits forever in your yard and you don’t know what to do with it? Maybe nothing works on it anymore, and it is rusted out. In attempting to repair or rebuild it there is no meaning. So because you figure paying to get rid of the thing is a steal, you’re thinking of hiring a junk car removal service to haul it away. Ok, here are some stuff you should know before you do this, because you may be throwing away good money. Vehicle Removal¬†offers excellent info on this.

Many people don’t know that an old piece of scrap metal from a junk yard will deliver a decent price. Steel and other metal prices have fluctuated recently, but metal is never worthless. Before being sold for scrap metal, the way junk car removal services make money is by breaking the old vehicles down into bits that can be sold separately as used auto repair parts. It could be worth a lot of money for the battery, catalytic converter, rims, tyres, radio or CD player, etc. An old junker may be worth between $100-$300 and may be more to the right buyer in some instances. And you could get a $100 price difference between the top and bottom deals, depending on who you speak to.

To see if there might be any equipment, jumper cables, additives, or a spare tyre that can be sold separately, be sure to take an inventory of the trunk. Check for money or personal objects under the seats. Having a copy of the title for the car is a good idea as this is needed in some states to prevent turning in stolen vehicles and most yards prefer to have the original title. The junkyard will know if a car that is going to a crusher needs a title. If the car still runs but needs some repairs, to see if anyone is interested, you could run an honest advertisement in the newspaper to sell junk car. To find this out, it might be worth the cost of the ad. If you don’t want to bother with the promotional headache, be sure to tell the junkyard that the car is still running. Better still, if you can bring it in, you can get more cash so they don’t have to recover their towing costs.
