If your car has reached the end of its useful life or is no longer road legal for one reason or another and now doing nothing more than occupying useful space in your garage – it is time you start thinking about how to dispose of it off hassle free and profitably.
As a matter of fact a car, even it is nothing more than complete junk has always some value attached to it and you can actually convert that value into cold cash – only if you know exactly what to do.
What is the best way of dealing with a junk car? Well, people do have different preferences in this matter and can confuse you whether you should sell it to a private buyer, a Car Removal Sydney or you should be directly selling those to the car wrecking services or automotive recycle facilities.
As a matter of fact, there is no consistent method for evaluating the exact valuation of a junk car and if you plan things a bit the following tips can help you maximize what money you get from that piece of scrap.
- Take quotations and compare: As we have already stated that there is no standard way of evaluating a scrap vehicle it will be unwise to sell your car to the first car removal service you come across – even if you want to get rid of the vehicle really quick. Contact at least a few removal services for quotations and compare the prices they offer. The prices do vary though not by much and you can always sell to the best offer for more cash.
- Sell parts separately: Most people are ignorant of the fact that junk car removal companies don’t bother about the parts and the quotations they offer don’t cover the components of the car which may still be usable or have some value in the market. The radiator, the battery, catalytic converter, and many other smaller spares can be sold separately along with the tires if they are still in usable conditions and by doing this you can obviously add some more cash to what you get from the vehicle.
- Sell directly: Any Cash for unwanted Cars Sydney to which you sell your car will ultimately take them to the junkyards for dismantling and recycling. So if you can sell directly to the junkyards you can have a couple of hundred dollars more in your pocket. But you should also keep in mind that in that case you have to tow the vehicle to the junkyard and that will certainly cost you both time and money. Selling to removal service can be more hassle-free.

Paperwork: There are some regulations on selling junk cars in Australia violating which can lead to legal difficulties. But when you sell to a legitimate car removal service you are no longer required to bother about the legal difficulties for they will complete all the necessary paperwork necessary with the authorities and hand you over the papers along with the money so that you don’t have to face any legal difficulty in future.
