Often people think that when trying to get rid of an old car, there isn’t much of a difference between taking it to a scrap yard and calling a car removal company to pick it up. Because of this, many people bring their car to a junkyard and don’t get to reap the benefits of calling a company who specialise in buying old cars and using their parts. That’s why we want to talk about the differences between the two methods of car removal, so that you can make an informed decision when the time comes for you to let go of your old car. You’ll find that car removal companies are often less of a hassle, and save you money in the long run.
Which option takes less time and effort?
Taking your unwanted vehicle to a scrap yard means you have to go through a few steps before you can bring it over. You have to first remove the oil and fuel from the vehicle, and then flatten the tires. Only after you’ve completed these steps you can tow your vehicle to the nearest scrap yard to be wrecked.
Nowadays there are many car removal companies who will come to your location and remove your vehicle for you, without you having to do anything. All you have to do is call and they’ll come pick up your vehicle at the most appropriate time for you – and you don’t even have to remove the oil or flatten your tires.-
Which is more financially beneficial?
Scrap yards have been around for much longer than car removal companies, and most people tend to go for the former option because they’re used to it and feel more comfortable going for something they already know. This unfortunately means that they often miss out on getting the best deal for their car. Conventional scrap yards will usually pay you a few hundred dollars for your old car or truck. Most people think their old car isn’t worth much so they believe that this is a good deal without any knowledge of the value of the parts of their vehicle. A good car removal company will pay you accordingly for the amount of metal they can recycle from your vehicle. This means you can get more than a few hundred dollars – some cars even fetch up to $1000.
Which option is better for the environment?
It’s important to consider the environmental impact of any decision you make – not just for peace of mind, but also for the health of your community. Letting your old car sit in your backyard is bad for the environment, as old cars emit hazardous fumes and chemicals – such as oils, coolant liquids and chemicals from batteries – to the soil which can affect the health of your plants. Getting rid of your car as soon as possible is thus one of the best ways to combat soil pollution. But which option is better for the planet?
Scrap yards park their vehicles in landfills, which in themselves aren’t environmentally friendly. By letting them sit in lots for long periods of time, scrap yards let your car constantly release toxins into the air and environment. Car removal companies ensure that most of the car is recycled, as soon as possible, so you don’t need to worry about the hazardous chemicals that your car emits. Cars bought by car removal companies aren’t thrown in landfills – so you can be rest assured that this is the best option for the planet.
