The value of the scrap car is determined by many factors.
Year of manufacturing and model – One of the most important factors that determine the value of your scrap car is its year of manufacturing. The make and model of the car will be another important factor. If your scrap car is a model that is commonly driven in your city, it’s a particularly rare model or there is heavy demand for its parts, then the value of the scrap car will be high.
Condition of the scrap car – Another important factor that determines the price of the scrap car is its condition. Will the buyer be able to repair the car and drive it again; will he be able to remove the parts and sell them or will he be able to only sell the car as scrap metal. If repairs can be done and the cost of repair is not greater than the price of the car, then you may get a higher price for your scrap car.
Demand for spare parts – If the demand for spare parts of your scrap car is high, then you will get more money for your car. Market value of scrap cars from which many parts can be removed and reused will be high. If that’s the case, then you can demand more money for your scrap car.
Location of the scrap car – Scrap value of metal varies from region to region. Therefore, location of your scrap car is a determinant of the money that you can get from your scrap car. Also, if the demand for your scrap car model is high in your region, then you will get a better price for your scrap car.
