How to Make Money from Your Scrap Car

That old, scrap, broken, rusting, and/or unwanted car you have sitting in your driveway or yard probably feels like a burden, doesn’t it? What if we told you that you could actually make money from that car?

Plus, you won’t have to do any work to make the money, it’s all completely legitimate, you’ll get the cash in your hand, and you’ll help protect the environment in the process.

Yes, all that is possible simply by selling your unwanted car – the car that, let’s be honest, you will never drive again – to a car wreckers.

A car wreckers will pay you for the car, they will collect the car, and they will then recycle it to ensure the component parts cause no damage to the environment.

Of course, you will have to use a reputable car wreckers in Auckland such as us at Delta Car Wreckers, but that is not a hinderance to you making money from your scrap car.

As experts in the car scrapping industry, here are our tips for making money from your scrap car.

Move Quickly

Your scrap car is depreciating in value every day it sits on your property. This is no different to any other type of car, in fact, as all cars depreciate as they get older.

Therefore, there is no point delaying. Acting quickly will help ensure you get the maximum price possible for your car.

Remove Anything Added to the Car

There are two reasons for this point:

  • You may have personal belongings in the car which can be hard to get back once you sell your car to a wreckers. This usually means you will have to replace the belongings, which is an added expense you don’t need. Spending a few minutes removing your personal belongings is worth the effort.
  • Added features to the car may be worth more money sold separately than sold with the car itself. Importantly, this doesn’t apply to standard components of the car as removing them might reduce the price a car wreckers is willing to pay. Things like new stereos and mag wheels, on the other hand, might be worth removing.

Contact Car Wreckers for a Quote

The process of selling a car to a car wreckers involves contacting the wreckers so they can give you a quote. Don’t just contact one car wreckers, however. As with any other type of quote you get, it’s always better to get more than one so you can compare your options.

Make Sure You Choose a Wreckers that Offers Free Car Removal

Finally, never pay the car wreckers to have your car removed. This is an expense that will reduce the amount of money you make, plus it’s totally unnecessary as good car wreckers will collect your car for free.
