If you own a used vehicle that isn’t worth repairing you may be wondering what you should do in order to get the most money for it. You’re obviously not going to be able to trade it in when buying a new or used car or sell it privately to someone who wants to drive it away. However, your old car does have some value, and it’s important that you get the most money you can for it. This holds especially true if you’re planning to buy another automobile that’s in good working order. Even if you don’t need to replace your old broken car with another automobile, it still makes sense to sell it.
You certainly don’t need to have it sitting around your yard. Not only is your used car an eyesore, but the longer it sits and rots away the less it will be worth. The q that remains is should you sell your old car for used auto parts or sell it for scrap metal? The best solution is to sell your car in one piece to a reputable salvage yard that specializes in auto parts on Cape Cod. A salvage yard like Robertson’s Auto Salvage will give you the best price for your used vehicle and then remove and resell the used auto parts that are still in good working order.
Robertson Salvage will then use the rest of the used car for scrap metal. This solution is the best of both worlds. You will get top dollar for your used and broken vehicle and you won’t need to remove and sell the used auto parts yourself. Even if you’re handy with a wrench it still takes a lot of time to take apart your used vehicle piece by piece. Once that task is complete, you then need to find buyers for all of those parts and pieces. In the meantime, you need to find a place to store all of those parts and pieces. Although there is a chance that you could make more money this way, there certainly is not a guarantee of that.
That bottom line is that after spending all of that time disassembling your used car you may not actually be able to sell all the used auto parts. In addition, you need to carefully consider if you’re truly capable of the task. Changing your own oil is quite different than breaking down an entire automobile. You need to consider the fact that working on a vehicle tends to be dangerous. You need to handle sharp objects and dangerous fluids. One slip could lead to a serious injury. You also run the risk of causing damage to the environment.
When you take a car apart for used auto parts the fluids, such as gasoline, oil, and steering fluid to name a few, need to be properly disposed of. That costs both time and money. The good news is that Robertson’s Auto Salvage will do all of that work instead. All you need to do is figure out what you’re going to do with the money.
