If you have an old car that is cluttering up a garage or your property, you may be considering selling it for scrap. Before you call to have it hauled off, there are some things that you will need to do, such as remove the plates and find papers of ownership. You may also want to remove personal items and parts you want to sell separately. Here are some things that you will want to do before you have that junk car hauled off:
1. Removing Plates Of An Old Car Before Hauling It Away
Removing the plates from your car is an important step in getting it ready. The plates have personal information and are yours. Remove front and rear plates to ensure that they do not get stolen or reused in your name.
2. Getting All The Paperwork To Show You Own The Car
If you have a junk car on your property, you may not be the owner. This can sometimes be difficult. With older cars, often a simple bill of sale can be enough to show ownership of the car. You can contact the person that owns the car to get this contract. If it is a newer car, you may need to transfer ownership to your name or have the owner sale it.
3. Removing Personal Items That May Have Been Left In The Car
There are many personal items that can get left in an old car. This can be things like bank statements in a glovebox and other personal items. Before you sell a junk car, look in the interior for any personal items. This can protect you from things like identity theft. Even if the car has been sitting for years, it is a good idea to take a quick look for any personal items.
4. Taking Off Any Parts That You May Want To Keep Or Sell Separately
There are many parts that you may add to a car as aftermarket features. Some of these items may be newer, and you can remove them and save them. There are also be salvage car parts that you may want to remove and sell separately or take to an auto parts service to get a core deposit back on them.
These are some things that you will want to do before you call to have an old car hauled off. If you are ready to get rid of your vehicle, contact a junk car removal service and talk with them about taking your old clunker away.Share

There are so many things that can go wrong with a vehicle at any given time. Being on a tight budget limits me to the type of cars that I can afford to buy, and many times the ones that I buy require some work to get them running before I can drive them. What parts should you check when buying a car? What parts can easily be replaced without spending too much money? My blog will show you all sorts of things about buying a car in need of repair. It is my hope that you will learn what is worth buying and what should be left on the lot.
