Sydney Wide Cash for Cars understands that scrap car owners want the best price for their scrap car. Keep reading! We have outlined the following information for you to get the best price for your scrap car or truck.
Your car may be in scrap condition, but week after week as it sits, it continues to deteriorate. Don’t procrastinate. Get it sold to a scrap car buyer asap as the longer it sits and deteriorates, the more value it loses.
If the Car Is Drivable, It Is Worth More $$$
When you obtain a free online valuation for the car, be sure to let the buyer know that the car is in running condition as it will be appraised with a higher value. There’s no need to tow the car, so there is a saving to the buyer. If the car is one that is sold at an auction, it will also bring a higher value.
Know the True Market Value of the Car
Knowing the value of your car means not getting ripped off at a price for the car. The Blue Book value of your car should be your starting point. Yes, it assumes that the car is in good shape, but it gives you a starting point in a price for the car. Use the Blue Book value and then subtract the costs of repairs to have an estimate for the car.
Salvage Prices Mean Higher Prices
If there are re-usable parts like a GPS system or alternator, then the parts will bring a higher price than the metals of the parts. If some parts and components can be pulled, then you should receive a higher price for the car as it is more valuable.
Use the weight of your vehicle as a last resort. Most of the weight of the car is steel. If the car has parts that can be pulled or will be auctioned, negotiate for a higher price. Selling a car solely based on its weight should always be the very last choice, taken after proper consideration of all the other above-mentioned options.
Do Not Accept A Price with Conditions
Never allow a buyer to make a price with conditions. It is a sign of a scram. If they tell you that they’ll make a deposit, or pay once the car is scrapped, look for another buyer.
