3 Reasons to Sell a Junk Car Before the New Year

Is getting rid of the junk vehicle on your property in the Belton area one of your New Year’s resolutions? If not, there are some good reasons to start thinking in that direction.

Each year, thousands of junkers in the U.S. are sold or donated to salvage lots, but thousands more stay parked where they are, never to be driven again, left to languish. Below are three reasons to put your car in the first group, and place it in the hands of a junkyard that sells used auto parts near Belton.

1. Earn Hundreds of Dollars

Most junk car sales net the seller hundreds of dollars. The more a junkyard that sells used auto parts near Belton needs your car, and the more salable parts the vehicle has, the more you can expect to receive.

If you’re feeling generous, donation is also an option. But if it’s cash you need, just be sure you sell to a salvage lot that offers free towing. Otherwise, you could walk away from the transaction with just pocket change.

2. More Space / Curb Appeal

If a junk car inhabits on your property, it’s probably taking up space in your garage or sitting in your driveway. Vehicles have a big footprint; unless you have a cavernous garage like Jay Leno, you could probably use the extra square footage. If the car is in your drive, it’s either compromising curb appeal or taking up parking space, out of sight. In any case, removing the vehicle would be a property improvement.

3. Support Auto Recycling

Whether you sell or donate your junker, you can place it in the hands of a salvage lot that supports auto recycling in two ways: by keeping used auto parts in circulation, and by forwarding scrap metal to automotive recyclers. Even if your junker is badly wrecked and has almost no parts someone would consider reinstalling, the crumpled scrap metal can still earn you a payment.
