Selling your scrap car can be one of the most challenging or easiest tasks, depending on how you approach it. If your car has some life left in it, you can take the age-old approach of selling it to an individual. But if it has already run its course and is no longer roadworthy, it is only worth its weight in scrap.
However, you can still sell it for a better price by contacting a car wrecking facility. Car wreckers buy all kinds of scrap cars without making a fuss about its condition. Any car, dead or alive, can be resourceful as they resell the functional parts for profit and recycle the rest of the metal.
Since your trash is their treasure, you are highly likely to get an excellent deal.
Keep in mind that not all car wrecking facilities are the same, and there’s no price regulation by any government body. As a result, the price that you will get for your old car may vary significantly depending on who you are selling it to.
Since car wrecking is a highly competitive industry, several businesses are even willing to offer a price-match guarantee and other benefits, such as free car removal and paperwork assistance. They are bent to provide the most convenient way of selling a scrap car, and as a seller, you can use this to your advantage.
The first step is to contact a car wrecking facility in your city – near or far, it doesn’t matter.
You can provide your car’s details, such as make, model and year of manufacture, over the phone. A car wrecking facility is interested in buying your car the moment you ring them up. So, feel free to divulge any details related to its condition, whether it’s been in a spot of bother or has rust all over the underbelly.
Based on this information, you can get a ballpark price quote. The exact quote can only be provided to you at the time of on-site valuation. This brings us to the next step.
