Do you have an unwanted car, which is nowhere near the state of being driven in your garage, taking up enough space for many months? The best way to make hundreds of dollars out of that junk car is to sell it to a reliable car removal service.
Every morning, when you catch a glimpse of that rusty car, you might be asking yourself, Should I repair it at an automobile mechanic and to a useful state so that one day, I will drive it again? Or should I just get rid of the piece of scrap and dump it in a nearby junkyard?
Well, your decision can depend on a few things:
- Is your car still in running condition?
If yes, then you might think about either repairing it for your own usage or to sell it privately in a better condition for more money.
- If it has some mechanical issues but looks just fine.
- If it is completely functionally broken down and even the exterior is rusted.
You may take your time to come to a decision with the former two conditions, but for the latter one, we suggest you that selling it to a car removal service would be your best pick.
What is a car removal service?
Car removal service is a set of tasks including collecting, towing, and recycling unwanted cars from your doorsteps. It is the most effective way of getting rid of junk vehicles occupying extra space in your garage or the backyard for years.
What is the benefit of using a car removal service?
There are multiple benefits of hiring a professional car removal service:
If your damaged car has been in your garage for so long, then you may either need money to repair it for use or have to pay a couple of bucks to tow it away to a junkyard. But with the reliable car removal services offered by the professionals at Express Auto Group, forget about spending those bucks. Instead, you can get a better offer for your junk vehicle than selling it privately.
Easy and fast
Finding the right buyer, transporting the vehicle to the desired place and then thinking about the possibility of it getting dumped in a junkyard for years and damaging the environment is too much of a job for one person to handle. Once you contact Express Auto Group for our car removal service, our inspector will visit your place to investigate the vehicle and then quote you with the best price. After agreed upon, we take full responsibility of completing the paperwork and then towing away your rusted vehicle, providing you cash in hand.
At Express Auto Group, we make sure to dispose-off your junk vehicle in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Cars, trucks, or any other vehicles are made up of many different materials such as iron, zinc, aluminium, copper, steel, and many more. With proper segregation of the parts that can be recycled and also evaluating the probability of reusing some spare parts which are still in better condition, we try to create as much less scrap as possible.
How does a car removal service work: Broken down in steps
To prevent yourself from getting deceived or scammed, one needs to know about the car removal service. Companies offering car removal services are very professional in their job, so you can sit back while they get the job is done by following these easy steps:
Step 1: Contact to sell
Search for a car removal service provider in your nearby area to make the process quick. Always look for a professional car removal service provider who offers to visit your place and tow the car from your doorstep without costing you any extra dollars.
Step 2: Request a quote
Once you contact a car removal service provider, they will send their professional to investigate the condition of your junk vehicle and offer you a specific amount for it. Some companies do not offer any price to you and simply put their effect and cost of towing away your scrapped vehicle away into consideration. But with Express Auto Group, we guarantee to offer you the best price for your car.
Step 3: Documentation
There are specific rules one need to consider before selling their car to a new owner, even if you are selling it for scrap. These rules and regulation vary according to the states and region, so it is important from both the sides (seller and buyer) to attend to the completion of all the paperwork beforehand.
Step 4: Tow away
After successfully taking care of all the steps mentioned above, the car removal service provider will send a tow truck to your doorstep to take away the junk vehicle from your backyard. At Express Auto Group, we respect and care about the sentiments you have with your car, and thus we make sure to offer you with the best quote to ease up your decision of selling your vehicle in the junk.
Step 5: Instant cash
After successful completion of all the steps from inspection to evaluation, the company pays you in cash before towing away your car and so, you don’t have to worry about getting scammed.
Things you should consider before handing your car over to a vehicle removing service provider.
Know the recent market price of scrap metals
Consult any local scrap metal service or surf online to get a better idea of the current market price of the scrap metal. You can then confidently ask the car removal company about the price they offer and bargain according to your idea.
Ask for the costing of mechanical parts that are still working.
If you are just selling off your car for scrap, then there is a fewer chance that the car removal service provider company will consider the operational status of the motor, alternator, GPS, or any other mechanical parts. Nicely ask them about their take on this, and if you find better pricing for those parts, then you can disassemble them from the vehicle and sell them separately.
Determining the weight of the car
Although it is not likely to get scammed for the weight of the scrap metal when pricing the vehicle on its weight, but it is always a better option to have a rough idea on your own. Look up for the weight of the vehicle on searching by its model on the internet.
Getting a quote from different sources
If you are aware of the costing and evaluation of the junk metals, then it will definitely help you, but if you are selling something this big, it is advisable to consider at least three or four junkyards before selling off the vehicle.
Take out or drive yourself.
Remember not to forget asking the car removal company about the towing service they offer along with the buying option for your junk vehicle. If you have a used car, still in a driving condition, then you can also consider driving it to the junkyard if it saves you some dollars. However, with Express Auto Group, you get the cost-free towing option while selling your car to us.
How you can get money for used cars using car removal services?
You may think that removal of the junk car from your garage or backyard without costing even a single penny is the best deal you can get. But we are sorry to say that you might be wrong on this! Can you agree on selling a product, which once cost you thousands of dollars, just like that for free? That’s why at Express Auto Group we are motivated by a fair trade by offering the best quote for their used or junk vehicles, which you will find worthy and appealing for sure.
Our process is honest and transparent, and thus we have listed the most important points that play an important role to determine the value of your used car. These points are given below:
- The market price of scrap metal: The rate of scrap metal keeps fluctuating, and this can easily affect the amount of money you can get for your junk vehicle.
- Transportation cost: if you have a used car still in driving condition, it will definitely cost you less (even you can drive your car to the yard), but transporting a junk vehicle will require a tow truck resulting in the extra cost of fueling. Also, grabbing a good deal from a nearby service provider will save up on some penny.
- Condition of your car: If you are told that the condition or working status of your used car is not considered while selling it to a car removal service provider, then you are being scammed on these words. Many people think that at junkyards, your car is disassembled and only the metals are extracted for their value, but that is not true. While being stripped, motor, GPS or even the spare parts, which are in good condition, are extracted to be sold off separately. So, make sure that you get the right amount of money for your car and not just for the amount of metal it weighs.
Not many junkyards will tell you this, but there are some efficient ways to get more money for your used car.
- Scrap off the rust from the body of the car as much as possible, lesser the rust, greater the benefit.
- Check if the mechanical devices such as the engine, motor, GPS, etc. are in good working condition.
- Wash the dust off from the vehicle (it will make the car not look much older).
- Keep an eye on the mileage covered by the car (if it is still in driving condition); a less used car can get your more money.
- Repair a little here and there if possible on your own.
