Scrap cars are one of the most common things that you can see in every city today. Scraping your old car is an excellent way to make money out of something that would otherwise be a waste. It’s also an environmentally friendly way to dispose of a vehicle that doesn’t work for you anymore. Even if you think it does, it might be worth getting rid of it anyway because the scrap value is higher than the cost of repairs.
Here are some tips on how to scrap your old car:
The first thing that you will need to do when scrapping your used vehicle is to make sure that there are no valuable parts on it. This means checking under the hood and under the car for anything that could be sold separately. You can also check inside the car for any extras like stereos or seat covers which could also be sold separately and make money on top of what you get from scrapping your vehicle.
Clean up your car properly. Make sure that no fluids are leaking from your car and that there are no gas fumes coming from it. The last thing you want is for someone to get hurt because they touched something on your car and got burned or asphyxiated by fuel fumes. You should also remove any personal items from the car, such as clothing or tools (this will help reduce clutter when taking photos of the car).
Take photos of your vehicle before sending it off to be scrapped or sold. You can take these photos with a camera, or use an app like Google Photos to take them automatically every day (this makes it easy to find photos later). These photos will show potential buyers what condition the car was in when you took ownership, so they know exactly what they’re paying for when buying from you (or if they want to buy).
You should then remove all personal items from inside your car including mirrors, airbags and even carpeting if possible because these items can also be sold separately for extra money on top of what you get from scrapping your vehicle.
Take off any lights from inside and outside of the vehicle such as headlights, tail lights or side marker lights because these also have value in them as well as being able to sell them separately for extra cash.
Many auto dealerships have programs that allow you to bring in your old vehicle and have them dispose of it for no charge. They will usually send someone out with a tow truck who will take the car away and get rid of it for you. Make sure that the dealership accepts all makes and models before bringing your vehicle there for disposal because some do not accept certain types of cars.
