Tips For Getting Junk Cars Off Of Your Property

by Herman Mills

If you have some junk cars on your property, and you have no intention of fixing them up anytime in the near future, you are going to want to consider getting rid of them. Leaving junk vehicles on your property can cause your property value to decrease, they can cause a rodent problem for you, and your neighbors will probably be less than happy with you. How can you get rid of your junk cars? Take a few moments to examine the following tips:

Advertise Them For Free

There might be some people out there who are extremely desperate for a vehicle, and they have the mechanical skills required to take your old, broken-down vehicle back on the road legally. If your goal is to simply clean up your property, you could always go on your various social media pages and let your friends know that you offering for someone to come to your house for free junk car removal. As long as they can move it, they can have it. Make sure to let your family know about this, too, so they can help spread the word.

Call Local Scrap Yards

If there are some scrap yards in your area, you will want to give them a call to see how much cash for junk cars they are offering. The amount that is offered is usually a flat rate offered to everyone, and it is based on the current value of the scrap metal produced by vehicles. In some cases, if the junk vehicle is a super rare vehicle or is prized by collectors that might want to rebuild it, they may offer a little more money for it. Call each scrap yard for a quote because each place might give you a different dollar amount, and you want to get the best deal possible.

Call A School For Mechanics And Auto Body Technicians

There are a lot of schools out there that offer programs for aspiring mechanics and auto body technicians, and they need vehicles to work on. You can give the schools a call and see if they are looking for any junk vehicles to work on. You could donate the vehicles to them, and with the receipt that they provide, you might be able to use that as a write-off on your income taxes. 

As you can see, there are a few good ways to get junk vehicles off of your property. Before you know it, they will be cleared out and your property will start looking so much better. Contact a local junk car removal service, such as Kwik Towing LLC, to learn more.
