Top 5 things to do before you scrap your car

  1. Know your Wheels

Before you call any junkyards, it’s necessary to know what kind of wheels your car uses. Is it Conventional Steel Wheels or Modern Alloy Wheels? Be sure to do your research so you can get the best price for your scrap cars. When you are looking for a quote, let the person know about the type of wheels your car has to get the best quote.

  1. Be aware of frauds in the market

Always be aware of middlemen, and other fraud agents in the market. They might give you a high quote price to attract you as a customer, but upon viewing your vehicle change the price drastically. Remember you always have a right to refuse to hand over your vehicle to such agents, they might even ask you to pay for the towing and travel time.

  1. Remove all the valuable items before you junk your car

We normally suggest our customers do this right after they decide to scrap their cars. If you are someone who uses cars almost every day, treating it like a second home, there are high chances that you might have some belongings in the car like spare coins, water bottles, sunglasses, watches, etc. It’s best to go over each compartment and holder to make sure it’s all empty.

  1. Remove the license Plates

We recommend all our customers remove the license plate beforehand or while we remove their scrap cars. You may have some time left on your license plate sticker, which will make you eligible for some credits. 

  1. Ask Questions

When you are shopping around, always make sure to ask questions. Ask Questions like, Is it the Same Day Removal? Can you Schedule Scrap Car Removal? Do you remove cars from underground parking? Can you tow a car without wheels? Is there any hidden cost?
