When you have a junk car or any other junk vehicle, it can be a bit frustrating finding out how to get rid of it.
There’s advantages and disadvantages of bringing your junk vehicle to car scrap yards. Bringing a scrap car directly to a scrap yard (in most cases) will earn a little bit more money than calling a junk car removal service. Although it may only be a $50 difference, $50 dollars can go a long way in this economy.
However, some people don’t want to deal with the hassle. There’s a lot more to the car salvage process than most realize. If you decide to tow it in yourself somehow, there’s a few things you should know. You must drain all fluids from the vehicle, and in some case the tires are not accepted at the salvage yard.
Prepping a car to be towed to the car salvage yard isn’t something most people want to deal with. So the next option is to call a professional car removal company.
Contacting an auto recycling company is typically more convenient and preferred more than doing it yourself. Even recycle guys who scraps cars often times get cash for junk cars from one of these services.
Don’t fall for the free junk vehicle removal ads because a little more searching and there’s always a company that will actually pay you for them.
There are a few things you should know prior to having a car removal company to tow your car, truck, or RV.
Cars and trucks that are 1995 or newer, as of 2010 must have the title. Junk cars that are more than 15 years old don’t require a title. Also having a registration can help in some cases it depends on your location and state rules/regulations.
Now a company who removes junk cars can pay equal to or more than bringing it directly to the scrapyards. Anywhere from $50 to $600 can be paid for a junk auto. It’s certainly worth it to have a car removal company get rid of the junk vehicle. They pay well, and the tow able condition and location of the scrap car doesn’t matter.
