Things To Do Before Selling Your Scrap Car To A Car Removal Company

Sell your Scrap-Cars

Remove The Registration Plates

Selling your scrap car to a wrecker is slightly different than selling a used car to a dealer or private buyer. Since a scrap car is one that’s beyond repair, the only way to get rid of it is to sell it to a car wrecker, who will then wreck the vehicle to pull reusable parts and recycle the scrap metals. Since the car is going to be wrecked and recycled, you need to remove the registration plates and hand them over at the RTA centre. There is also paperwork to be done to transfer receipt, but if you sell your scrap car to Car Removals Melbourne On Time, we will take care of the paperwork for you for free.

Check For Any Valuables Left Behind

You never know what you might find with a thorough check of the interiors as well as the boot of the car. From a pair of sunglasses to jewellery and other valuables, people find long lost treasures when they search every nook and cranny. Be sure to check under the seats, between the seats and anywhere else you think small items could’ve gotten stuck. It’s a good idea to vacuum the interiors and check to see if anything of value turned up in the process.
