At some point most people end up getting a better vehicle and when that day comes (unless you are passing it down to someone) it’s time to figure out what to do with the old vehicle. What if you couldn’t really sell it to someone in good conscience? What if you need to get it out of the apartment complex’s parking lot before it gets towed or ticketed? Here are a few ways to get rid of or use that old car that can be a profit to you.
Use It For Parts
Save yourself some money by buying a newer model of the same make of car that is currently sitting in your yard or driveway. You can use the old car as your own personal pick and pull. If you know how to do your own work ( or know your way around the maintenance manual) you can save quite a bit of money on auto repair.
Sell It For Parts
There may be parts that you can’t use from the older model on the newer car. In a case like that you could sell the used part. The same applies if you choose to get a different type of car altogether. When your old car just isn’t running this is a good route to take. You can still get some of that money you have invested in that car rather than just call it a loss and have it towed away.
Sell It For Scrap
When you just can’t find a use for your old vehicle (it’s too old or too rundown) you can sell it for scrap. This is a great option when you have an older car or truck because there seems to be more metal in older vehicles. It may not be a huge sum, but it’s still money.
