3 Ways To Get Rid of an Old Car


An old car can be an eyesore and an unnecessary expense if you are required to keep it licensed. However, if the car doesn’t have much resale value it may be difficult to get rid of it. Here are three options for disposing of an old car.

1. Have It Hauled Off

If the car you need to get rid of doesn’t run, then you may need to contact a service that will pick up junk cars Lake Charles LA and haul them off. You will still need a destination for the car to be hauled to. Try contacting local salvage yards. They may be willing to purchase your vehicle to sell for parts. 

2. Take Advantage of Special Promotions

If you are planning to buy another car, look for dealerships offering special promotions. Some dealers will offer to accept anything of value in trade. They probably won’t offer you much money for your trade-in, but they will at least take it off your hands for you. Because most dealerships don’t sell these types of cars, they will probably sell your car to a salvage yard, so it may be worthwhile to check with the salvage yard first to see if you can get more money out of your car by selling it directly to them. 

3. Try Craigslist or eBay

It can be difficult to find a buyer for a junk car, but some individuals and businesses may shop Craigslist, eBay and other auto sales sites for junk cars that they can use for parts. If you want to get the most out of your car, you could part it out yourself. 

Disposing of an old vehicle can be a hassle, but there are a variety of options open to you. Whichever option you choose, it is probably better than annoying your neighbors by leaving a junk car sitting on your front lawn.
