If you have a broken-down car sitting on your drive, lawn or in the garage, you are not the only one! A lot of people have cars that break down, they get replacements, then do not know what to do with the old car and it becomes a junk car sitting there waiting for you to come up with car removal plans. You do not have to put up with it anymore though, you can sell to a cash for cars, or car removal business and finally re-take that space for whatever purpose you want it for. Here are some of the frequently asked questions people have about using any junk car removal business.
Q1. What affects the price of a junk car?
A1. The price is really decided by four things, the model and make of the vehicle, what condition it is in, if they already have a lot of stock of that type and whether there is a lot of demand for those parts. Different yards place different values depending on their stock and what they focus on as well.
Q2. Do they take any type of vehicle?
A2. One car removal Gold Coast business might take anything, and some might focus on certain ages, models or conditions. It varies so you need to check whether they would take your vehicle by looking online or giving them a call.
Q3. Do I need to have the car title to prove ownership?
A3. Sometimes people have a junk car for so long that they no longer know where the paperwork is. Most places want proof of ownership so if you have other documents that prove you bought it, an auction sales receipt, for example, that might be enough. Some will take vehicles with no paperwork, and some will not.
Q4. Do they pick up the vehicle?
A4. Most will come and collect the vehicle. After all part of the issue with older vehicles is that they no longer operate. However, not all car removal services will pick up for free. Some have towing fees and that can eat into the cash you are getting paid for the vehicle. It is worth making sure you only choose free towing options or that even with a fee, the amount they pay is still a good deal compared to other options.
Q5. What types are more valuable to a car removal business?
A5. It tends to be the case they focus on vehicles that are more popular and more reliable since that means the parts are in more demand and have more value.
Q6. How long does it take for them to pay for the car?
A6. A car removal Gold Coast business should offer you payment when they come to get the vehicle. They will offer you a quote based on your description, then come out and assess it and confirm with you that they will pay that amount still. They usually then hand over either the cash or the cheque.
