What to do with a car that is not worth fixing

If there is one thing we can all be sure about, it is the fact that everything falls apart sooner or later. When it comes to cars, if you can sell your car a fair bit of time before this happens, it won’t be you who are stuck with it when it turns to trash.

But you might not always be so lucky. One day you may have a vehicle that seemed just fine until one day the transmission fails completely. That is a very costly part to replace. If your vehicle is of an age, make and model that makes the cost of repair exceed the value of the car, you have a clunker on your hands. And you need to get rid of it.

Don’t Panic

Most of people ask us what to do if the car repairs cost more than the car is worth and get panicked quickly. Apparently, this isn’t the end of the world. You don’t have to actually pay money in order to dispose of it, and you can actually get some money out of the old machine. On top of that, the car will end up being recycled as well.

Sell Your Car As Is

Here at Perth Auto Wreckers, we buy the vehicles that no-one wants anymore. The vehicles that cannot be sold via any other means. Like the car that you can’t fix because it is just too expensive. We do this with the purpose of recycling them. We dismantle the car in question and salvage the parts and materials that can be re-used.

Our team also handle any and all toxic and hazardous materials that your vehicle probably still has inside it. This ensures that none of these nasty chemicals make their way into the streams and waterways, harming wild-life and plant-life.

Sell Your Car for Cash

At Perth Auto Wreckers, we pay top cash for cars. We pay up to $9’999 for any given vehicle, depending on the value of parts and materials that we can salvage on it. We don’t only buy cars, we buy Utes, SUV’s, 4×4’s, trucks, and vans as well. For the good condition Utes or trucks, we can go up to $15000 as well.

Don’t pay more for Repairs than your Vehicle is Worth

Some parts are incredibly expensive to replace. This includes the Cylinder, which can cost up to $8000 to fix. The engine will set you back up to $4000, and the transmission can cost the same. You can buy a replacement second hand car for that amount of money, one that doesn’t need repairs.

If you have following questions in mind, then you need help immediately:

  • Should I repair or replace the car?
  • Car maintenance costs more than the value of the car;
  • Vehicle is not worth repairing or too expensive to fix.
  • Is it better to buy a new car or fix it an old car?
  • Should I fix my car of junk it?
  • Is it worth spending money on an old car?
