3 popular ways to dispose of your unwanted car

/ / 3 popular ways to dispose of your unwanted car

(Last Modified on: December 2, 2017)

A popular method for getting rid of vehicles that are no longer of any use due to their extreme age is to dispose of them. The fact of the matter is that you can’t simply leave any vehicle on the side of the road once it has passed its used-by date. The good news is that there are a few different methods you can choose from. Some of them are also great for the environment. The following are the most popular:


Donate the Vehicle to Charity

There are some great benefits that can be reaped via the donating of a car to a charity. And you will be doing a great thing for the charity as well. They will be able to get some much needed money by selling the vehicle in question. What can you get out of doing this? Well, you will be able to receive a tax deduction. The car itself isn’t worth much so getting something off your taxes will be great.

If you are worried that you won’t be able to donate it because it doesn’t run, never fear. It will still be able to be donated. This is because there is still value in the parts and materials. Just be sure to keep an eye out for any donation scams.

Sell to a Cash for Cars Company

If your car isn’t running at all and is completely useless, it is still worth some money. This is because there will still be many parts on it that can be salvaged. The same goes for steel. While it is possible to dismantle the automobile and sell the parts yourself, this is only if you have the equipment and expertise. Or if you know someone with those attributes. However, if you don’t have these things, someone who does is a car recycling company. They are often referred to as “car removal services” or “cash for car services”.

Majority of Melbourne car removal firms buys scrap cars from people, and then they take those vehicles back to their salvage yard to recycle. All parts that can be re-used are refurbished and added to their second hand part inventory. All the scrap steel is also salvaged and sold as scrap metal. Any toxic or hazardous materials, such as brake fluid, battery acid, coolant and engine oil are also recycled or disposed of.


This is the method to choose if your vehicle is still running. Trade it in to your local auto dealership and you will get a new car for less money. This is an option, even if your vehicle is worth less than one grand. Once the dealership has the ownership of said vehicle, they will fix it up and sell it second hand. This is a great option to choose if you want to get rid of your vehicle incredibly quickly.

As you can see, just because your vehicle is old and useless doesn’t make it harder to get rid of. It just means that you will get less money for it.
