Why Scrap Your Car

If you can sell your car, use it as a trade-in or still use the car in any way, scrapping your car might not be the best choice. There are times that scrapping the car is the best or maybe the only option.

Totaled: If you are in an accident and the car is found to be total, as in not repairable, the car is a great choice to be scrapped.

Broken: Sometimes, there are issues with the car that make it broken. That is, the car may be beyond repair or it is too costly to repair. Sometimes, there are parts on the car that break that will cost more to repair the car than it would be worth. Parts like the engine and the transmission, or frame damage.

Not Worth Selling: Sometimes it isn’t worth selling the car. There are times that selling the car isn’t worth the hassle, usually, because the car will not fetch enough to make the process worth it. There are times where you might get more money for scrapping the car than you can for actually selling it.
