3 things to do before junking your car


By Cash For Cars 24

Are you planning on junking your car? If so, you’re not alone! Every day many people around the world make the decision to junk their old or non-working cars by calling a company that will pay them cash for their car.

Before you junk your car, there are 3 things you should do to get your vehicle for the recycling company to pick it up.

#1 – Remove Your Personal Belongings

The most important thing you must do before junking your car is to remove all of your personal belongings.

This step is vital because it’s easy to forget personal belongings and you don’t want to remember something important that you left in your car after the recycling company drives away with it.

You should also remove personal belongings from your car because the company that you’ve called to recycle your vehicle isn’t a personal dumpster so it’s important to have your vehicle ready for them to professionally recycle it.

#2 – Get Your Vehicles Title Ready

After removing your personal belongings from your car, you should next get your vehicle’s title in order by finding your title or going to the DMV to purchase a new title because it’s difficult to sell a vehicle without having the title.

Besides having your vehicle’s title ready, you should also have a valid picture ID when the recycling company shows up just so you can easily prove that you are indeed the owner of the vehicle.

#3 – Remove Valuable Items or Components from Your Vehicle

Last of all, but most important, although you’ve agreed to sell your vehicle to the junkyard or recycling company in the condition you described, you should still look for other valuable parts or components on your vehicle which you could sell for extra money.
