Whether you are selling your car to an individual buyer, junkyard or salvage yard, you definitely need Junk Car Towing services. Most junkyards do have tow trucks used to transport cars that have been purchased from the owner, however, they may deduct the cost of towing from the price to be paid for the junk car. If you want to save more money, it will make sense driving or towing your junk car to the junkyard if you are comfortable doing so. You must take note that some junkyard owners will not add more to the price of the junk car simply because you tow it down to the yard by yourself.
Most junkyards will pay you extra for saving them the time and labor they would have used to tow your car to their yard, in addition to this, most junkyards will pay more if the car has been driven recently or still qualifies to remain on the road. For this reason, driving your car to the junkyard will definitely increase its value.
Alternatively, you can arrange for the junkyard to pick the junk car up if you don’t mind them deducting some money for the Junk Car Towing. This should be the more convenient option because they will come wherever you are located, then pick up your car and pay you immediately. There seems to be little or no waiting time when junkyards come to pick your car up. Secondly, if your junk car cannot be driven, this method of pickup will surely be the ideal option. You need to be aware of some junkyards that quote a price initially and then lower it significantly once they have agreed to tow your car or loaded the car on the tow truck. This is the reason why you should do some research on the value of your car and stick to your decision. Do not try to start a fight with the junkyard owners, but be ready to compromise a little by deducting the towing costs from the initial quotes offered.
The last step to take once your car has been successfully towed to the junkyard is to return the license plates and then cancel the car’s insurance and registration. You need to be aware that the protocols for this step will vary from state to state, but in most cases, you will have to return the license plates to the DMV before the car’s registration is canceled. If you are unsure of how to go about this, then you should ask the junkyard operators, they will surely guide you on the necessary steps to take. Aside from canceling the car’s registration and returning the license plate, you may still have to submit some other documents as required by the DMV or junkyard owners. You can also search the internet for more information on canceling your car registration and returning your plates.
Junk Car Towing costs should be minimal. There are many companies that offer FREE towing when they purchase your vehicle and you should definitely ask when calling for a price quote.
