Once you have made the decision to sell your junk car, there are a few concerns that need addressing. Primary amongst them is deciding on the optimal time to sell. There is of course no point in keeping a scrap automobile for any longer but as the experts in junk car removals, we know a thing or two about the best time to sell. As with most things on the market, the price you can get for your junk cars are affected by demand and supply. In this case, the current prices of scrap metal will play a huge role. We however have some insights to make your job all the more easier.
In the spirit of welcoming all things new, spring really is the best time to sell your junk car. As winter draws to a close, people move into spring cleaning and perhaps even splurging. The tax rebates due in late spring also mean that people are more willing to spend on necessary auto parts.
Junkyards are often willing to shell out premium to meet this sharp spike in auto parts demand
and keep their stocks from running out. This means there is more cash on offer for your scrap cars. We suggest targeting between October to November, if you’re looking to sell your scrap car at a premium.
Come warm weather, us Australians are out and about indulging in our favourite fun activities. This creates an uptick in the demand for good auto parts and selling your junk car now can be quite profitable. There is also a considerable boom in construction and development around this time which drives up the demand for scrap metal.
So if you missed out on the golden period of spring, worry not because there is always summer. A word of caution however, you might not want to wait until late December or early January to remove your scrap automobile. The holiday period is when the whole country is shutting down to spend time with family and friends. Consider February where demand from incoming students drives up prices again.
When summer passes, we see that the prime time of buying new auto parts has also passed. Junkyards are beset with more junk cars than they can turn over. This leads to an inflated market and ultimately a less than ideal selling environment.
If you’re looking to get the best price for your car, we don’t recommend selling between March and May. However we can’t recommend holding onto your scrap automobiles for longer than necessary. If the junk car is more hassle than good, it is best to contact a car removal expert at the earliest.
Most people retreat indoors as temperatures drop and there are minimal activities to indulge in. This leads to a considerable drop in the demand for auto parts and scrap metal. The cost of doing business also being considerably higher in the weather means your junk car may not receive the price you expect.
