What To Do With A Scrap Car

Did you know that your car depreciates annually by 15%? After maybe 10 to 15 years, your vehicle has a much lower value from when you once bought it, especially if it was a used vehicle.

So when your vehicle has aged beyond repair what can you do with your scrap car?

While it may appear worthless, we at Newcastle Top Cash Car Removal want to assure you that you can still do something with it. Regardless of how bad it looks your scrap car still holds some value. That’s right, it doesn’t need to lay and take up space in your driveway unnecessarily.

Here are several ways to deal with a scrap car:

1. Sell Your Scrap Car

It may seem old and worthless to you, but someone else might find a use for it even in its condition. At the very least, if it’s parts are still intact, they could be worth a lot of money.

So while you may consider selling it to someone who might repair it, a better option is to simple scrap it. This is what happens when you sell the car to us. We strip the valuable parts and crush the remaining parts for recycling purposes.

Your scrap car is valuable to us and we will buy it, regardless of the condition. Our car scrapping company can get you an instant quote. Once you accept we schedule an appointment to come down to your place, buy and pick up your car.

2. Exchange It For Another Model

Most likely you still need a car, a working one nonetheless. While many new or used car dealers often offer reduced prices if you bring in your old car as a trade in. Most will not be interested in taking an non-working car. Or if they will accept it, they will not give you anything for it. More than likely they will offer take it off your hands and make out that they are doing you a favour. Then they will call us and we will come and collect it and end up paying them, when it was your car!

So if you are planning on using it as a trade in, do yourself a favour and call us instead. We will give you a fair price and then you can use that money to reduce the cost of the new car buy.

3. Donate It To Charity

Although they are rare, charities that run car donation programs still exist. The charity organisation can see the value in all things that are donated to them. They realise that any car has some value in the parts or metal. More often than not they too will call us up and we will pay them cash for their car.

So by donating your scrap car to charity you are effectively giving them cash. Although there will be a transfer of ownership a couple of times. In this case we think it is best that you contact us and we pay you for your scrap car removal. Then you can simply give the money to charity yourself. The charity would prefer this easier transaction much more too.
