If you are in the unfortunate position of owning a vehicle that costs more to keep running than it would cost to buy a new one, congratulations. You have a “Junk Car”. When you find yourself in this situation, it may seem hopeless, as there is no way anyone is going to want to buy it. People tend to want cars that they can actually drive. But this isn’t entirely true. There are a few options that are available to you to get cash for unwanted cars.
Part the vehicle out
The fact that the vehicle is no longer in working condition doesn’t mean that the individual components on it are also not in working condition. The likelihood is that your scrap automobile is a treasure trove of re-usable parts that can be sold individually. All one needs is a lot of knowledge about how are car works, the skills required to disassemble a vehicle without damaging anything, and a vast array of tools. You will especially need something to cut the body to pieces in order to sell to a scrap metal yard for recycling, and something to lift the incredible heavy engine out of the hood.
On top of that there is the space required to do all of this, and then store all the parts for sale. This is a very involved process. Not everyone has the time, space or know-how to successfully take it on. If you are not one of the select few who can do this, you can breathe a sigh of relief at the fact that there is another option out there.
Car Removal Service
The ultimate fate that you want to befall your vehicle is for it to be thoroughly recycled. But no-one can blame you for just wanting it out of your life, at no extra cost or effort to you. An Auto Wreckers are a great way to sell your car fast. They are the convenient, easy and simple solution. But the main draw here is the financial remuneration that comes along with it. They pay cash for the junk vehicle.
All it usually takes is a phone call, or if you prefer. You can fill out the form that most of these companies have on their website. A detailed description of your vehicle is all that is needed for this phase. After that, you are finished with a free quote, and if you like it, arrangements are made for a proper assessment of the vehicle. After which a final price is decided for it. If you are happy with that price the cash is given to you on the spot. The unwanted junk vehicle is removed from your property free of charge.
Sell your car “as is”
You can sell your car online privately to a customer who wants it for the parts. They will probably part the vehicle out, much like was described earlier. You may need to pay for ad space, depending on where you are advertising it. It also might take a while, and involve some haggling with prospective customers. It isn’t as quick and convenient as using an auto removal service. And you may not make the best amount of money. But it is another option.
Basically, just keep in mind that it’s not okay to just abandon vehicles anywhere. This is something people do, and it is illegal. The above options should provide you will a basic framework for tackling the problem that is a useless junk vehicle.
