Find out Best Ways to Sell Scrap Cars in 2022

Here are the four best steps to sell scrap car and make good money while at it which includes:

  • Selling your car as-is
  • Sell your car to a dealership
  • Sell car for parts
  • Sell your car for scrap

Sell your car As-is

The first option you want to consider is to sell your car the way it is. Even if it is wrecked, scratched, or old, there is always someone willing to buy the car in any condition it is. All you have to do is find people willing to buy and you do that by advertising.

Using social media like Facebook, you can reach potential buyers. You can also use online e-commerce platforms like Craigslist or eBay to sell your car.

If you want to go this route, know that people will want to lowball your offer. So make your research on the price of your car model as a scrap so you are well aware of the prices to consider.

Don’t be afraid to negotiate, and even if you will compromise, make sure it is not more than a few hundred dollars below the market price you researched.

Sell in a Dealership

If you don’t want to go through the route of selling your car as it is through Facebook or on Craigslist, you can sell your car in a dealership. The best way to go about this option is to sell to dealers of the same make as your car. E.g if you use a Camry or a Subary, it is best to sell to a Toyota dealership. That way, you will get the best deal on your scrap car.

Some dealerships will suggest you trade in your scrap car for a new one by adding some money on the car. If that is what you want, you can go for it. In the end, you are using your scrap car to get value, and that is what matters.

Note that of all the options, selling to dealerships sometimes leaves you with the short end of the sick. They give pretty lowball offers especially if your car is in bad condition (wrecked, scratched, missing some parts). To get better offers with this option, your vehicle needs to be in good condition, less than ten years old, and at least, less than 100,000 miles.

Sell in Parts

Another way to sell scrap cars is to sell it in parts. This option is best for non-running/ dead cars and wrecked/totalled cars. It might be difficult to sell these cars as they are or to dealerships, but you can still get value on the scrap car by selling the parts.

To get an optimal price on the car selling the parts, check for valuable in-demand car parts and put them up for sale online.

Most in-demand car parts include: Windshield wipers, oil and oil filters, air filters, brake pads, spark plugs, fuel pumps, water pumps, alternators, mufflers, and engine sensors.

Expensive parts that will make you a lot of money include: GPS systems, fenders, air bags, bumpers, catalytic converters, wheels, tyres, and rims.

Sell your Car for Scrap

The fourth and final way to sell your scrap car is to sell to a reputable scrap car buyer in your locale. It is the best option amongst the 4 because it is easy and gives higher returns.

All other options require some upfront cost and effort which can be expensive and stressful. For example, if you decide to sell the car as it is, you will have to put some effort (and probably money) into advertising. If that option works for you then it’s alright. However, credible scrap car buyers like ScrapCarsRemoval eliminates all the stress that comes with the other options and even pays you a higher price – up to $8,999 – on your scrap car.

      A bit nervous as first time using a wrecker, a … More few dodgy operators out there it seems, and plenty of fake google reviews too (yes it's my first review, but I'm actually genuine!). Thankfully these guys delivered the goods, no complaints at all, although they offered cash, not sure that's allowed in NSW. Anyway, that misunderstanding was soon cleared up, I filled in the form (including me writing in the quoted price), they transferred the quoted amount and txt'd me the receipt before I handed over the key. Off went the old car, goodbye old friend, you served us well. Money appeared in bank a few hours later, very satisfied customer making departing with Alfie a happy experience. Genuine thumbs up.
