Ideas For Removing A Junk Car From Your Yard

Posted on

An old car sitting around in your driveway or yard can be an eyesore, and if you no longer need or want the car, selling it could be problematic if it is not running or is very old. Sometimes finding a junk car removal service is the best way to go, and there are some options you could use. 

Scrap and Car Removal

If you are ready to get that junk car out of the yard, you may want to call a junk car removal service in your area and have them come and take the car away for you. Some services will pay you for the vehicle, and others will offer to remove it free of charge, so check with several services to see which one is the best option for your situation.

If you are trying to make a little money on it, start with the services that advertise that they will buy junk cars and see if they will make you an offer for the car, then remove it from the property. 

Small Scrap Collectors

Another option that you might want to explore is to have a small scrap collector that does junk car removal take the car away for you. These small services will not pay much for the vehicle, but they are often operated by one or two people who are hustling to make a living by collecting scrap and selling it. 

These small operations do all the work themselves, and getting the car stripped to sell for scrap can be very time and labor-intensive. Working with a small business to have your junk car removed is an excellent way to support your community and the people that are trying to make a living, working at something a lot of people may not be able to do for you. 

Call a Salvage Yard

You may not have a lot of options for junk car removal in your area, but most towns have a salvage yard nearby that can come and remove the car from the property for you. In most cases, the vehicle does not need to be running, but it should have some usable parts on it to make it valuable to the salvage operator. 

A car that is nothing but a frame and a few parts may not offer many parts for the salvage operator to sell to their customers, but they may still take it for the remaining steel in the car. The steel can be crushed and added to a load of cars going to a steel recycler to add a little weight to the load and net a few extra dollars for the salvage operator.
