How to scrap a car for the most money

If your car is no longer roadworthy and you think it’s reaching the end of the road, you might be starting to think about scrapping it and getting yourself some money for it. But what can you do to get the most money for it? It’s not always an obvious one but there is a couple of things that you can do to help make sure that you get the most out of scrapping your car.

Try not to remove any parts

If you want the scrapping process to be as easy as possible then it’s a good idea to leave your car as it is and not remove anything from it except for any belongings. If you decide that you fancy making some money by removing your tyres or battery, then this could affect the scrap price that you might be offered. As difficult as this may be as this could get you some extra cash quickly, if you want a good quote, leave everything where it is.

Use all of your fuel

If you’ve paid for it you may as well use it! Fuel isn’t as cheap these days so you definitely want to get your monies worth if you’ve still got some left in your tank. That’s if your car is still running of course. Also, if you leave any in there, the scrap yard will only take it out anyway before they can scrap it. However, if your car has been run into the ground and doesn’t run anymore, there’s always the option of siphoning it off and using your fuel for another car.

Honesty is the best policy

It pays to be honest. There’s no point in lying when it comes to selling your car as the truth will always come out in the end. Even if it’s just a white lie and you decide to change your car’s cause of death, this could ruin any chance you had of getting a good price for your scrap car. The best thing to do is to make sure that you describe your car as accurately as possible so that any price you’re offered won’t be drastically affected if there are just one or two confusions.
