If you have a junk car sitting on your property, getting rid of it may be easier — and more profitable — than you think. The ease of selling a junker to a salvage lot depends on the level of service the buyer offers; some salvage lots are more customer oriented than others.
If you need to know which junk car removal services Wrench-A-Part offers, below are the types of assistance we provide to individuals or businesses that need to liquidate junk vehicles.
Accept Various Ownership Documents
You may have heard that you need the title of a vehicle to sell it to a salvage lot. While the owner’s title is certainly a valid proof of ownership, it is not the only proof of ownership that is acceptable. Also acceptable as a proof of ownership is: an auction sales receipt, a mechanic’s lien, a storage lot lien, or a repossession affidavit. In addition to the owner’s title, Wrench-A-Part will accept any of these documents as proof of ownership.
Offer a Fair Price
A fair price is one that is based on the overall condition of the vehicle. At Wrench-A-Part, we look at the number of salable parts on the body of the vehicle, inside the cabin, under the hood, and on the tires. We also consider the value of the scrap metal in the automobile. Based on these considerations, we pay sellers a fair price that is typically higher than what other salvage lots offer.
Provide Free Towing
If we need your automobile, we will send a tow truck to your location and tow the automobile for free. Not all salvage lots offer free towing; those that don’t can cost the customer hundreds of dollars in towing fees. Considering that most junk vehicles are worth hundreds of dollars, paying for towing after selling them usually leaves customers with a small profit.
Offer a Cash Payment
When you sign over proof of ownership for the vehicle, we pay you for the automobile in cash. Payment in cash is the best policy: it prevents the customer from worrying about bounced checks, helps to lower the administrative costs of the buyer, and helps the buyer keep less cash in the business office. When determining which junk car removal services a salvage lot offers, be sure to ask about how payment is made.
