Have you recently had your car damaged in an accident? Is the value of the vehicle less the cost of needed repairs? Maybe you have an older car that you want to remove from your driveway but you think no-one will want to buy it. If you are considering calling a scrap company to take away your vehicle, there is an alternative solution. Why not call someone who will pay cash for used cars?
Disposing of your car the easy way
If you try to sell your vehicle, you will struggle unless the car is in reasonable condition. Even if you find people who display interest in your vehicle, you will incur advertising costs and the loss of your time while you arrange the sale. If you decide you call a scrap company, they will happily take away your car, but they will charge you for their work. If, instead, you call a company that offers cash for used cars, they will collect your car, and pay you to let them take it away.
Why would anyone want your old car?
You might think that no-one will want to buy your car unless it is in perfect condition, but that's not true. A car doesn't need to be in good condition or even capable of running to have value. A vehicle that can't be driven on the road will still contain many useful parts. There might be sections of the bodywork or interior fittings that can be used for repairing other vehicles. There could be engine parts and mechanical items that can be reconditioned and sold as spares. Even something that is mainly rusted metal will still have a scrap value. Instead of spending your time stripping the vehicle into a pile of parts to extract anything valuable, it is best to sell it to a company offering cash for used cars.
Selling your used car
If you decide that it is time to part with your used car, call a company that offers cash for used cars. They will be able to tell you everything that you need to know before you sell your car. They can also explain the price you can expect to receive for your vehicle. Once you have received an offer, it will then be for you to accept that price if you are happy with it. The company will come and collect the car at a time which is convenient for you so you won't need to worry about staying in when you would much rather be out doing something more interesting.
