There’s a large number of reasons why someone might want to get rid of a car, or why it may be considered scrap. If your car has taken a bit of a battering from an accident, it might be irreparable, or the costs to repair it might outweigh the value of the car itself. It may be so old that it’s no longer considered safe to drive. Or, you might just find yourself strapped for cash and own an old car that could solve that problem for you. Whatever your reason may be, getting cash for scrap cars comes with a whole range of additional benefits you might not have realised.
Create space and declutter
If you’ve had that hunk of metal sitting at the back of your garage for longer than a few days, there’s no doubt it becomes not just an eyesore, but a consumer of valuable space. Whether you’ve been storing it waiting for the right time to sell, the right price, the right buyer, it can be difficult for the stars to align in just the right way before motivation for selling the car diminishes and it soon becomes forgotten in the back of the garage, or worse, abandoned in a lot somewhere. In the used car industry, it’s averaged that it takes about 60 days for a used car to sell. If we bear in mind that this number comes from professionals who do this day in and day out, we can safely assume that it could take significantly longer for a private seller to achieve the same goal.
But why wait over 60 days to do what you can achieve instantly with a service like ours? There’s no time like the present. Anyone who is interested in getting cash for scrap cars should know the importance of selling the car before it starts to rust or other elements run the risk of reducing its value.
Good for the environment
If the car you own is completely wrecked, or other factors restrict your ability to drive it, it can be tempting to park it in a lot somewhere and forget it exists. However, it comes as no surprise that this will have a negative impact on the environment. As components deteriorate, materials like oil and battery acid can leak and wreak havoc for the plants and animals in the environment it’s parked in.
On top of the lasting negative impacts on the environment, abandoning your car is also a waste of money. Even if your car is completely immovable, MetalBiz will bring our services to you so that you have every opportunity to get cash for scrap cars.
Get the most cash for your scrap car
No matter what the reason is for getting rid of your old car, you can be sure that with our service you will always get the best deal for your scrap car. However, there’s a couple of ways you can ensure you get the most value and most cash for a scrap car;
Know your car’s worth: in a business where everyone is looking to get the best deal, it’s important to know the value of your car at its current state to ensure you get the best deal and the most possible cash for the scrap car. You don’t need to do any research or have any industry knowledge to value your car at a fair price. Instead, it’s as easy as filling out the form on our website or calling us at 3274 4664 to receive a reliable quote based on the information you provide us.
Leave it intact: to get the most cash for scrap cars it’s a good idea to keep it as intact as possible at the time you try to sell it. This means avoiding taking it apart from the inside and selling the pieces separately. The reason for this is simple – the more metal you’ve got, the more cash you can get.
Drive it to the scrap yard yourself: It’s not uncommon for most scrap car companies to charge a fee for picking up a car from your location. Therefore, in most cases it would be recommended that you, the owner, drive the car to the scrap yard yourself to eliminate that cost. However, MetalBiz understands that this might not always be feasible; whether it’s because you live too far from a yard or your car isn’t in drivable condition, it can add a complicated element to a process that should be as easy as it gets. This is why we offer a free car removal service for cars of any condition, to save you the hassle of having to drive around in a car you don’t want while still ensuring that it doesn’t remove from its value and you’re still able to get the most cash for scrap cars.
At the end of the day, inevitably having to say goodbye to that piece of metal you’ve likely had many memories in, can be difficult, but we make it worth your while with good old cash for scrap cars.
