Sell Scrap Cars in Melbourne

Why should I sell my old car for scrap metal profit?

If you currently own a car that isn’t worth repairing and is taking up space in your driveway, you should consider selling it for scrap. Selling scrap cars isn’t just convenient – it’s profitable. Often, you’ll find that you can get more money by selling your old car or caravan to a scrap dealer, rather than a car dealership. When you sell broken cars, it doesn’t matter whether it’s road safe or in terrible condition – it’s getting recycled anyway!

How do I sell cars for scrap metal profit?

While you certainly can sell a fully intact scrap car or caravan, gathering the specific sellable car parts will allow you to negotiate a higher price on your scrap metal. This is because the metal will no longer be attached to any foreign materials, making it more convenient for the scrap metal buyer to recycle it (and thus, more valuable).

In order to sell your scrap car for the most profit, you’ll want to start by stripping the interior and cleaning it thoroughly. This will involve removing upholstery, seating, and any accessories (such as the stereo). Some scrap dealers will offer to drain the car’s fluids, however if they don’t offer this service, you’ll need to do this too.

Next, you’ll want to sort through the parts to determine which ones are no longer working. Working parts can be reused and sold elsewhere. However, you can sell the broken car parts to scrap dealers. This includes anything from the stereo system to the engine and brakes. Try to separate the metal from any screws or plastic in order to get the best possible price for it.
