Scrapped cars MEGATHREAD - No buying or selling

Recommended Posts

I am doing the same . My beloved Poppy is going to be scrapped tomorrow . There is a firm coming to take her away . I look on it that she is donating her parts to other cars .

 

I'm sorry i have break it to you like this, but.....

I doubt your car will be donor. more like crushed, cut up in tiny pieces an melted down in to lumps of metal an shipped off too china!

 

have a nice day :)

There are plenty of online ones that will either come and collect and can provide quotes for dropping off. I got ~£150 for my old Primera (collected from home) from http://www.cartakeback.com/

 

Scrap prices are around £0.11/Kg I think.

Don't forget to leave the windows open and get the interior nice a wet, make sure the spare wheel and other junk are present too, couple of bricks under the rear seat was always a good trick too, all helps bump the weight up :thumbsup:

You better off taking cat and battery off and scrapping those separately

What about breaking the car yourself. Are the wheels worth anything? is the engine/gearbox ok? what about the interior? You can often make more money this way and then just scrap whats left.

Is this still available as I need one for a few parts. It will be cheaper then buying bits from scrapeyard

In theory yes, if you break it down and sell off each individual bits separately you can make a tidy profit.

but you need the space to do that, and you need time to be able to market and sell the parts.

 

Depending on the car/part you could be months waiting to sell some bits, or find that stuff is just far too knackered to bother attempting to sell.
