How to Sell Your Car for Scraps in Melbourne

Is your bombed out car still taking up space in your yard and starting to rust?
Or, have you given up on repairs or finding a drive-away buyer because the costs of getting your vehicle repaired enough to be able to be driven are too great?

Whatever the circumstance, if you have a vehicle that is no longer providing you with any benefit, and only occupying your space then you’ve come to the right place. At Cash For Cars Melbourne, we see the value in all vehicles and no matter what condition yours is in, we will take it off your hands and pay you for it.

Here’s how you can sell your car for scraps in Melbourne.

Clean Your Car

Before you decide to sell your car, even if it’s for scraps, you should make sure to clean your car first. This is a good idea for a number of reasons. Firstly, you’ll want to make sure that no forgotten possessions you may have left behind get sent to the scrap yard!

If your vehicle became a secondary storage unit after you stopped driving it you definitely need to clear it out so you don’t risk refusal based on waste. Car removal companies are not equivalent to garbage companies and they certainly don’t want to deal with disposing of your waste items. So if you want to make sure that your car is removed efficiently and that you get your money for it, you should save yourself the trouble by cleaning your car.

When you request a free quote, you should tell us accurately about the condition that your car is in, what kind of car you have, the car mode and make of it. While all of these things are determining factors, we try to look at your car as a whole.

Which moves us on to our next question…

…Is Your Car Whole?

Whether or not your car is whole can be a determining factor of how much you’ll get for your car and how you should go about selling your car for scraps. When your car is whole, you’re more likely to get more money as there is more scrap metal resources present.

How ‘whole’ are we talking as scrap car buyers? Well, ask yourself whether your car has everything it needs to run. Do you have tyres? Do you have an engine? Do you have brakes and doors? Even if some of these items are damaged, old or simply not present, a vehicle will retain some value for its scrap metal. So, if you have a full car body, or close to it, it will be more favourable.
