Have you been trying to sell your scrap car, only to get frustrated and find that no one wants it? Maybe you’ve even offered to just give the car away, but still can’t find anyone interested. It doesn’t have to be this way! Follow these tips for how to get rid of your scrap car quickly and easily, and watch your worries about this broken-down vehicle fade away.
Determine the value of your scrap car.
Before you go about getting rid of your old car, it’s important to find out how much your scrap car is worth. Knowing the current market value for scrap cars can help you decide if it’s worth selling or scrapping the car. There are three different services that offer up-to-date scrap vehicle prices: Skrotbil, 3skrotpriser.
Skrotbil offers free quotes based on make and model, while 3skrotpriser has a more detailed list of which parts are worth what on any given day. Both services allow you to create an account with them so that you can see the most recent prices for various makes, models, years and mileage levels from just one site.
Find a reputable scrap car buyer.
This may sound counterintuitive, but one way to get rid of your scrap car quickly is by selling it! If you search online for a reputable scrap car buyer you should be able to find one that charges relatively low prices. After doing some research we found three companies in the U.S. that would buy your car: Skrotbil in Oregon, 3skrotpriser in Tennessee. These three companies offer a good range of prices with Skrotbil the lowest ($95) and 3skrotpriser the highest ($200). In addition, they also offer convenience because all will pick up the car from your driveway (or street corner) at no cost to you!
Arrange for pick-up or drop-off of your scrap car.
To arrange for the pick-up or drop-off, call a salvage yard in your area and make an appointment. You will need to provide the salvage yard with information about where you live, the make, model, year, and mileage of the car.
If you are dropping off the vehicle, be sure that it is not blocking any roadways or sidewalks. If you are having it picked up by a company (usually free), set a specific time window for when they can arrive on your property.
Did you know? You can turn your old car into cash by selling it for scrap. The process is quick, easy, and could even earn you a few hundred dollars in the process. Here’s how:
Call a scrap yard near you (get quotes from a few) Call the police or sheriff’s department to have your car towed there. Be sure to bring your driver’s license with you so they can identify that it is your vehicle! If you’re not driving, ask someone else who is over 18 years old to do this for you. Leave your keys in the ignition so the tow truck driver can start up your car on the way back to the scrap yard.
