how to get rid of a scrap car | Cash for Cars | Auto Scrap

Taking up space in your garage, driveway, or backyard for years, that old, non-functional car can be a source of some much-needed cash if you decide to sell it for scrap. Part of the reason you may not have sold it already may be due to the erroneous belief that the process is intricate and complicated. Further, you may also be thinking that transporting your old junk car from your home to the scrapyard will be at your expense. Rest assured, neither of these beliefs is true; this will become abundantly clear to you as you follow Auto Scrap’s Guide to How to Get Rid of a Scrap Car.



The Guide to How to Get Rid of Your Scrap Car: The Steps


  1. Call Auto Scrap: Once you’ve decided to sell your car for scrap, give Auto Scrap a call to determine what your car is worth.


Before you call, it’s a good idea to have any valid papers, including the vehicle portion of your ownership, titles, and paperwork from the dealer, and/or the owner’s manual on hand. These documents will help you identify the details of your car, such as the model, make, and year of production, which will help our representatives assess the worth of your car more accurately. Having the vehicle portion of ownership also helps cut through bureaucratic red tape concerning the car’s proper ownership and allows you to sell it quicker.


At the conclusion of the interview, Auto Scrap’s representative will provide you with a quote for your car. Once you accept, you can book a pick-up date for your car. There’s no need to worry about charges or hidden fees- Auto Scrap will pick up your junk car free of charge! Discovering how to get rid of a scrap car has never been easier!


  1. Clear Out Your Car: Remember, once your pick-up date is scheduled and the car is gone, you won’t be able to search the seats for a lost earring or your trunk for a valuable tool. It’s best to clear out your car for all keepsakes, valuables, and decor items as soon as you can.


Search the trunk, glove and storage compartments, seat cushions, and even under the seats for items you will want to keep.


Something else you will want to consider removing is parts and systems that can fetch more money if sold individually than if for scrap. Sound systems, decor items like spoilers, and parts like your car’s engine and the catalytic converter may be worth more intact than as scrap, so best to remove them before your pick-up date.


Lastly, don’t forget to remove your license plate!


  1. Reap the Rewards: Once you’ve followed the aforementioned steps in Auto Scrap’s Guide to How to Get Rid of A Scrap Car, all that remains is to sit back and reap the reward. After our representatives secure your vehicle on pick-up day, they’ll pay you, in cash, before they leave. There’s never been an easier way to make money for a junk car!
