The Process of Junking Your Car
I don’t know if you’ve had this experience where you have a lot of stuff that you don’t use and sometimes you just need to either dump, sell or give it away. The process is usually like purge on your things, to get rid of what you don’t need and remain with what you actually use. This is most probably the reason why people have garage sales. There are however certain things that require little bit more attention to get rid of. Let’s take for instance, your junk car that you have had sitting in your garage for the longest time possible and you don’t use it. It is usually very easy to just ignore the car and imagine that no one would possibly want it but that is where you go wrong. The truth is that several people in mostly mechanics are usually interested in them and can easily put to use what you don’t find valuable anymore. Finding a dealer to buy your junk car is not a problem, all you need to do is make sure that you have prepared your car for the sale. Question is, what do you do to make sure that your car is ready before selling it as a junk?
First step in preparation is to make sure that you have removed any personal belongings that might still be in the car. The car may have been left unattended for some time without being used but it might still contain personal and valuable belongings. This means that you have to perform a thorough inspection of your car before handing it over to the dealers. It should not surprise you to realize that you have some jewelry and even insurance cards under the seats and other places that might be hidden from plain sight.
Regardless of how old your car is, there are still some valuable parts that you could you recover from it. Even if you don’t see the need and keeping some of these parts, they could be valuable in a way that they fetch a good price. Things like batteries, alternators, wheels, radio systems and starter motors are some of the valuable parts that you could sell separately. You also have to fill out all the necessary paperwork and avail documents that show you are the actual owner of the car you intend to sell. Transferring ownership becomes easy with all the documents ready and this is why you should always keep copies of the titles. You also have to take out the license plates and cancel any insurance policy you may have taken for the car.
