It’s probably standing for a year or more now in your backyard. You can even see the metal peeping out of its paint and the rust getting collected on it. The bird poop on it also adds to its ugliness, perhaps the engine inside it has gone into a deep slumber since this wasn’t used anytime recently. Hello, meet your junk vehicle! We know you’d be thinking about why you are bearing it on your property each time you look at it! We surely would!
That car we are talking about may be an old buddy of yours that’s good for nothing now. Or a gift left to you by a relative or a friend which you aren’t interested in. And if you are thinking of getting rid of it as soon as you can, then we suggest — don’t delay the matter more. You can always utilise the space it’s occupying in your garage or yard and make it useful instead.
How can you get rid of an old car?
If you are thinking of decluttering, and your car is one of the items to get rid of, there are some really good ways to wash your hands off the same. We have listed the same below and you can choose and opt for the one which suits you best:
Selling it to a dealership— Car dealers would eagerly buy this four-wheeler from you in return of instant cash. Later, they’ll repair the same and sell it at good rates and gain maximum profit from your car. You can try contacting a good dealer to seal a deal!
Sell it privately — If you don’t want to share your profit with anyone, you’d better repair and renew the car yourself. After it’s serviced and is properly functional, you can always place an advertisement in the local newspaper or online portal, and sell your car at a good price (even covering your repair expenses).
Sell it to car wreckers — If you think your vehicle is just hopeless and couldn’t get you money or any benefit, try selling it to the car and truck wreckers in NZ. Autowrecker buys your old 4 wheeler at reasonable rates, and utilise the parts in their own way. But in the end, you can rest happy with the handsome sum you receive, and the car you got rid off easily.
Trade the car — If you aren’t interested in the old car but desire a new four wheeler vehicle, you can always trade your old car for the same. You’ll just have to pay the surplus amount after the trade, and you gain a new car and get rid of the junk simultaneously.
Donate it — Sometimes not money is everything. If you believe in good deeds, then donate the vehicle to someone (or a charitable organisation) needy. They’ll happily repair the same and make the most of it.
So, if you have that eyesore in front of you, and are thinking about the ways to get rid of the same, how about trying one of the above tips to wash your hands off it?
