It may be daunting if it’s your first time selling a scrap car, but there’s really nothing to fear. The process is simple and hassle-free. Here are a few tips for making the most of our scrap my car service in Barking.
DON’T STRIP YOUR CAR – Our quote for your scrap car will include the value of its internal, salvageable components. Stripping vital parts like the engine, airbags or tires can really reduce the value of scrap cars. If you have already taken parts out, be sure to inform us so we can adjust our quote accordingly.
AVOID ILLEGAL CASH FOR MY CAR COMPANIES – There are many illegal scrap my car companies operating around the Barking area. Ours is registered with the DVLA and has been afforded Authorised Treatment Facility status by the Environment Agency. This proves we can be trusted to scrap a car in the proper eco-friendly way. It also means we can file the official paperwork on your behalf, sourcing you a Certificate of Destruction from the DVLA. Illegal “cash for my car” companies will not be able to do this.
CONSIDER THE MARKET – The value of scrap cars in and around the Barking area can fluctuate. While price movements are usually relatively subtle, the volume of vehicles being sold to scrap my car services can affect it, as can the global value of scrap metal. It can be worthwhile taking a moment to research online and find out how much fellow motorists around Barking have recently sold their scrap cars to local cash for my car companies for. This can help you ascertain whether it’s a great time to sell a scrap car, or that it might be worth hanging on for another few weeks.
