A car disposal company gives people the opportunity to get rid of their old clunker without paying the usual high scrap metal prices.
There are times when you need to make an urgent disposal of an old vehicle. Whether it is cluttering up your driveway, costing you money through unnecessary road tax or just because you’re tired of hauling it around, the time may well come when you need to make a prompt disposal of that vehicle.
Do you know any of these secrets? If so, you should share them with others. And, if you don’t, you should think about getting educated. Don’t worry though, We’ll still be here to help you when you need it.
What you should know before disposing your car
Before you decide to scrap your car and get rid of it this way, there are a few things you should know.
Firstly, the process of having your car scrapped and the metal it contains recycled is not always as simple as it seems. There are certain requirements you have to meet and you cannot simply drive your vehicle to a scrap yard and have it towed away.
It is true that many yards will not even look at your car unless you have it properly prepared, but there are others that do insist on seeing your vehicle before they will pay you to have it removed.
If this is the case, you will need to make arrangements for your vehicle to be picked up by a towing company and taken to a scrap yard. The tow truck driver will need to make an official record of the vehicle being towed away. He will then need to contact the scrap yard and give them details about the vehicle and get quick quote to remove your old car.
The process of car disposal
- it’s free to scrap your car
- you don’t have to decide immediately
- there are no transport or storage costs
- you can keep any documentation you have collected
- you may be able to claw back any costs associated with scrapping your car
- it could be worth a lot more if you decided to sell it privately
It can take days or weeks instead of hours and that is not good if you are in a hurry to make some money. There are certain things you should know about the people who will buy your car that will make it easier (and more profitable) for you to get rid of your vehicle.
For example, many people who buy cars at scrap yards have a very low opinion of the people who sell them cars. They think all scrap dealers are dishonest and only care about making as much money as possible from the cars they sell. This is not true but often, it is the people who sell cars at scrap yards who suffer most from this negative perception. It is not always the case but, when it comes to car buying, most people who go to a reputable dealer are well intentioned and will treat your car with respect and pay a fair price for it.
The same cannot be said for all scrap yards. In fact, many scrap yards are so dishonest, they will even offer less than the government allows for an “invoice” price for a vehicle. Invoice price is the price you are allowed to charge when you are selling your car at a dealership. It is usually much higher than what you would get if you sold your vehicle privately.
