How to get the best out of your scrap car

Nobody wants to have an old or wrecked car on their property. Not only does it take up space that you could utilise for other purposes, it also compromises the look of your property. Let’s face it, a wrecked car is no pleasing sight.


If you have such a vehicle on your property, and intend to get rid of it, consider an environment friendly option. After all, you cannot just dump the car in a landfill or an open plot, it might turn out to be hazardous for the environment.

Fortunately, a number of car removal services have surfaced in Auckland in the past few years. Offering cash for cars, Auckland car removal services offer lucrative deals in exchange of scrap cars. However, in order to get the best price for your car, there are certain considerations to make before you choose a company that offers services in car removal in Auckland.


At the end of the day, selling your scrap car is a financial transaction and should only be done with a reliable company.

Apart from looking at customer testimonials and asking around about the company, make sure you are presented with a document of the transaction. The document should clearly state that you were once the original owner of the vehicle and are now transferring the ownership to the wrecking company.


Just like everything else, the best quote you find might not be the best deal you can find. If the quote you get is too-good-to-be-true, look for hidden charges that the company might incur later. Additionally, choose a company that provides you a quote over the phone or through their website.

Also look for a company that does not require you to deliver the vehicle. Most companies offer free pickup of the car, accompanied with on-site cash payment for reduced hassle.

Price of the vehicle

While convenience is important, the price you get for your car remains the deciding factor when it comes to choosing a car removal service. To ensure you get the best possible price for your vehicle, do some market research to determine the real value of your car. To do this, visit the websites of multiple car wreckers and get as many quotes as possible for your vehicle. Keeping convenience in mind, contact the company that is offering the highest amount.

Additionally, make absolutely sure that you bargain. The car is your property, and you have the full right to bargain on the price you are quoted.


It is best to engage in business with local companies when it comes to scrap car removal. Not only does it help you save on the towing cost, a local company’s reputation can be verified easily. Check their website for customer testimonials, and Google, and various social networks for reviews.

Ensuring you engage only with a reputed company will not only guarantee convenience, you will also be sure that the price you are being offered is fair and are provided only with the highest quality of service.


Choosing a car wrecking service can be a tough job. It is important to remember that there is no reason to rush the process. Take as much time as you need to find the best deal around. Take quotes from a number of companies, compare them, consider the reputation and reliability of these companies and then make the decision. Doing so will ensure that your car wrecking experience is stress free, and leaves you with a good amount of cash!
