Here at Ali Wreckers, we will buy junk cars of all shapes and sizes. We buy cars, trucks, Utes, 4×4’s and vans, along with vehicles of all makes and models. If you want to make money from your scrap vehicle, here are some great tips for you to have success in this task.

Scrap your Whole Car

The easiest and fastest method for making money from a scrap vehicle is to sell the whole car all at once. You will get good money in the process. Ali Wreckers will pay you top cash for your car, and will even provide free removal. We pay money on the spot, however, we can also mail you a check if that is your preference. This is an easy way to sell your vehicle.

Lead Wheel Weights

The wheel weights are on the inside of your tyre. They are made of lead, steel clips and are a few inches long. The presence of the steel clips makes the lead a worth a bit less than lead is normally worth.

Car Batteries

If you are on the hunt for a nice chuck of change, you wouldn’t be going wrong by selling a car battery. Unless you need that car battery. But if it is in a junk car the chances are you don’t need it. They are very easy to remove, making them easy to scrap.

Starters and Alternators

Are you looking to get cash for car parts? There is a nice amount of copper in the starters and alternators. This is why they are such a good material to scrap.

Aluminium Rims

Other types of aluminium found on vehicles aren’t as valuable as the aluminium found in aluminium rims. Don’t forget to remove the tyre itself, as this will ensure that the most money will be coming back to you.

Catalytic Converters

These are one of the most expensive parts on your average car. If you have a junk car and the catalytic converter is in working order, you stand to get a nice amount for it. This is mainly due to the different metals that can be found in it, including platinum, rhodium, palladium and so forth.

You can get up to couple of hundred dollars for a catalytic converter. If you were to choose just one part to scrap separately from your junk automobile, make it this part.

Do you need to scrap a junk car? You can do so easily and without any fuss or stress by simply contacting us here at Ali Wreckers in Melbourne. The number to call is 0406 355 786. Or fill out the quote request form located on the main page of the website. We also sell parts. We do, however, buy scrap cars for top dollar. Our company buy cars of any make or model, any condition, and we also provide free removal. So don’t delay. If you have a scrap car, sell it to us today!
