Busting junk car myths

All cars become junk vehicles sooner or later. When this happens, someone is going to be the poor loser who has to dispose of it somehow. Kind of like a game of musical chairs. If you have ever found yourself in this position, you can attest to how annoying it is. You may have felt a sense of hopelessness at the idea of ever managing to get rid of it. Who is going to buy a junk vehicle off someone? They’re worthless, right? Well, it turns out that this is but one of the many outright myths about clunkers that are floating around in the popular consciousness. It’s time to put them to bed.

Myth number one: Junk cars are worthless

As was mentioned above, junk vehicles aren’t the most desirable thing to own, not least because they are unwanted, and very hard to get rid of. After all, who is going to want to buy a car that has died and no longer serves any purpose? The thing this myth doesn’t acknowledge is the fact that your average scrap car is still made up of materials that can be sold, like steel. Furthermore, even the most decrepit trash vehicle will have components and parts on it that can be salvaged and resold.

Myth number two: Parts for reliable cars don’t sell

There is this idea out there that because makes such as Toyota and Mazda are so reliable, they hardly ever break down. Therefore, people don’t require parts to fix them with. This couldn’t be further from the truth if the truth lived in a different galaxy. If you want the reality of the situation, it turns out that even the most reliable of vehicles need maintenance and fixing. And when this happens, it is a God send to have a scrap yard nearby selling affordable second hand parts.

Myth number three: You will only find popular models at the salvage yard

Of course your average salvage yard will have more popular models than not. But the fact of the matter is that parts from popular models get snapped up very quickly. It is the fact that they are so popular that drives this. Lots of people are constantly requiring parts. If your vehicle is a make that has high numbers on the road, don’t despair when it dies, as you will still be able to get rid of it.

Myth number four: Vehicles that are in working order should not be disposed of

Just because a car is in working order doesn’t mean that it is safe on the road. You will be putting you and yours at risk if you take it out onto the road. If your car has mechanical issues and is old. You should get rid of it regardless of whether it is technically driveable or not. The car will have plenty of parts and components on it, so you won’t have to worry about whether it can be sold or not.
