How & Where Should You Sell Auto Parts?
There are many different ways to get quick cash if you are either in a bind or simply could use some extra pocket change. Many of the best options are to use what is already at your disposal. For example, if you own a vehicle that is no longer being used, you can always scrap it. But how do you scrap vehicles, how do you get the most for your vehicle, and where should you go to get the most for your parts? In this article, we will address each of these points. If you live in the Bridgewater area and are looking to recycle a vehicle, please let us know.
What Should I Do With A Scrap Car?
If you own a vehicle and are planning to get rid of it you have a few options. First off, if you aren’t interested in money at all, and are simply looking to get rid of a junk or totaled car, you can always donate it. There are many different charities that exist that take vehicle donations. Alternatively, you can also arrange a pickup service near you, many local scrap yards will likely have a towing service for junk vehicles. They can do this because they can make money of the scrap, and it makes your life easier because you don’t have to pay for a tow truck to move a car that is likely undrivable.
Where Do I Sell Used Auto Parts?
But if you are looking to make money on a scrap vehicle, you have a couple of options. First and foremost, you can send the scrap vehicle to a local scrap yard and they will likely give you a flat rate based on the weight of your vehicle. Scrap yards see vehicles purely in the amount of metal that is there. But if you want more money for a scrap vehicle you should consider selling the parts. Used parts that are in good condition can be sold to a parts seller who then sells them to local mechanics as needed. It can be difficult to sell directly to a mechanic, as they only will buy what they need and they might not offer the most competitive price. A used auto parts dealer already has connections to many different buyers in the area so they can offer you a better price.
How Do I Sell Used Auto Parts?
To sell used auto parts you need to find an auto parts dealer in your area. Discuss with them the parts you are planning to sell and the condition they are in. You have two options here as well. You can sell the full vehicle to them and they can pick out the good parts for resale and scrap the remainder of the vehicle, or you can sell parts individually. There is an inverse relationship between the amount of work on your end and how much money you might be able to make. For example, selling a vehicle to a scrap yard is likely the most straightforward and least time-consuming experience, but also will lead to getting less than you could have gotten. By contrast, taking a vehicle apart and selling parts to a used auto parts dealer is more time-consuming, and requires mechanical knowledge, but might help you get the most for your vehicle.
