You may love your car as much as your newborn, but when it’s time to let go, it’s time to let go. Just as simple as that. Also if you have really no idea about the true worth of your car, giving your car for scrap is pretty much the best option out there. Best to leave certain things to the real experts out in the field.

However when you are in the process of doing this, one tends to overlook that there are different ways that you can actually use this to your advantage and make some money from your scrap car as well. You may be giving your car away to auto wreckers in auckland or anywhere else, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is you being aware of certain tips that will help you out in the given situation. Here are a few of them :-

  • Be sure to get the vehicle registered: This is quite the no-brainer. If you are not the registered owner of the vehicle then you will really not get much at all. That is a straight up fact whether you like it or not. Without proper ownership, junkyards won’t even give you that much money in return for your car. So be wary of that fact.
  • Be the ballpark figures: As far as this aspect is concerned, it would be best to get it from your regular mechanic rather than anyone else. Ultimately you will have a much better idea and picture of the overall situation.
  • Multiple quotes are a must: Once you have the ballpark figures, then you can get a total of at least 3 quotes. Once you get that sorted out, all you need to do is go to the top 3 wreckers with the according quotes depending upon your cash parameters.
  • Sometime you will need to drop your vehicle yourself: Even though a vast majority of services offer you free auto removal, the same is not true for the rural services. Hence you can save up a bit of cash by dropping your car yourself.
  • Bargain: No matter what happens, this is one things that you cannot afford to forget doing. You can earn those extra dollars even by thoroughly explaining the various merits and benefits of your car in particular.
