Whether it’s an instant obsession or a slow-burn romance, most of us end up loving the cars we drive. After years of reliable commuting, endless drive-thru meals, and on (or off) road adventuring, there comes a time when your sweet ride begins to falter and needs to be replaced by a new love. But what to do with your old scrap car? If it’s no longer functional and viewed as virtually worthless for a trade-in, you may want to think about selling it to the auto wreckers. Here are four great reasons why.
What better way to honor your former car than by having its parts recycled? Perth Car Wreckers are the experts in recycling vehicles, ensuring all usable parts are recovered from the body to be resold or reused. All parts that cannot be utilized are recycled or disposed of responsibly, professional, sustainable manner.
In a car, everything can be repurposed if it has enough life in it. From tires to car batteries, engine parts, and electrical components, all these parts can be either sold to be refitted in other vehicles or sent to a remanufacturer to be restored or rebuilt.
Once the usable parts of a car have been completely stripped and the fluids have been removed, the shell of your vehicle is processed down even further, with the removal of heating and cooling systems, wiring, and any other leftover components to ensure that nothing recyclable is left.
Despite what many people may think, a car that no longer works still holds a great deal of value. A dismantled car is a veritable goldmine of reusable parts that may be of great importance to the next owner (mainly if it’s a more expensive car part, such as a head gasket, transmission, or engine).
When a car generally stops working or is deemed in not good enough condition to be resold, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all its parts don’t work – because most of them do. Lights, seat upholstery, mirrors, and alloy wheels are all parts of a car that can be stripped from the body of a vehicle and repurposed. Now that’s good value.
Ease Of Disposal
If you’ve ever sold a car before, you’ll know what a jungle the used car market is. Whether it’s a private or dealership sale, there’s usually that nagging feeling that you may be getting ripped off. And you may well have.
When you dispose of your vehicle with an auto wrecker, there’s none of that. Most Perth Cash For Cars company pay top dollar – and often in cash – for old cars, wrecked, unwanted or unlicensed. They are usually cars that wouldn’t fetch much (or anything) out in the marketplace anyway.
One of the best things about selling your car to an auto wrecker is that, once it’s been approved and you’ve received a free quote, the business will drive out to and pick it up for disposal for you. Many wreckers, such as Advanced Auto Wreckers in Maddington, even have their own in-house wreckers workshop.
And don’t wait around either. The more you leave an unwanted car out in the elements to rust and deteriorate, the less money you’ll receive for it.
One of the great things about sending your unwanted car to an auto wrecker is that not only are you helping the environment, but you’re supporting local businesses as well. Auto wreckers can be found in cities worldwide, and there’s bound to be one near you…
