First of all let’s identify what is a junk or salvage car is, as one cannot just say that my car is a junk, right. A car becomes a junk or salvage or scrap car in view of Melbourne’s car buyers under following circumstances.
- The car model is very old and proper care is not taken
- The car is sitting idle in your driveway for many months and haven’t been started till late
- Your car met an accident, although newer in model but insurance has written it off
- You got an imported car and it is more than 10 years old. Few foreign brand cars does not have buyers in Melbourne as its maintenance cost is too high and parts cannot be found
So what to do if you have any one of the above. Well, there are few ways through which you can sell these types of cars.
- Posting an ad on Gumtree or other classified sites
- Posting an ad in newspaper
- Posting an ad in car sales or other car selling websites
- Calling a car wrecker for an instant quote and same day pickup
Well to proceed ahead you have to make few checks for yourself, as this would save you lots of time and headache.
- Is the car still driveable
- How much rego is still left with the car?
- Will the car need a towing service to be removed from your home
These are some important questions as private sellers cannot arrange a tow truck to pick the car from your home. The towing cost is simply too much for a private buyer to bear unless you are selling your relatively newer car at a very cheap price.
Rego is another important factor as private owners like to have a couple of months of rego with the car as it would help them to avoid getting a roadworthy certificate straightaway. On the other hand, if you keep your plates and registration you can return it to Vicroads and get cash for the remaining months of registration.
One should try a private sale if he has time for it.
Car wreckers may pay you less comparing to other private owners, this is the only downside of giving away your car to a wrecker but the advantages are way too much, like
- You don’t have wait to get cash for your cars
- You don’t have to answer all those irritating enquiries from every passer-by
- You don’t have to worry about explaining the exact condition of the car
So considering all these factors you should make a decision on whom to sell your car, as often times we have seen people contacting a car wrecker after waiting months and months for a decent private buyer.
