It is not uncommon to see a semi-rusted car sitting in the driveway or on the lawn of a suburban house anywhere in Australia. After all, there are many cars in this country, and often, people will hold onto their older cars for a little bit too long before they realise they have no way of getting rid of them. This can create a lot of worry that they will have to pay to get someone to come and tow it, leading to a cyclical nature of not doing anything about it for even longer. However, there is a way where car removal is virtually free, and you may end up actually getting some cash back.

Car Removal By Car Wreckers

Many car wreckers and scrapyards will happily tow your old car for nothing at all. This is because they are willing to do work on the car once they get it back to their place of work, either stripping the car of the material that is still useful or crushing it down so the metals and reusable materials can be harvested. Many of these auto wreckers will even give you some money to take your car off your hands, which for most people is just a cherry on top. However, if your car is a little rare or most of its components are still working under the hood, then this cash amount can go up.

Organising The Car Removal

To get a car removal process started, you need to first find an auto wrecker or car removal company within range. If you live in a city, this is generally no problem at all, and even country towns will generally have something similar. Then it is a matter of scheduling the day and informing the buyers of the condition of the car. They will most likely ask for photos to see what they can do with the car and whether it is salvageable or whether it needs to be scrapped, although most likely this won't affect anything except the price you'll get for it.

Getting Ready

Before the car removal company comes to get your old, rusted vehicle, you should make sure that it is accessible by a tow truck. Move any garden waste or built-up materials away from the car so they can easily pull it out. Make sure there is nothing in the car you want, and talk to the car removal company about the licence plates and registration if your car is still registered. Other than that, you can enjoy the money you get and have the burden of your rusted car removed from the front of your house!
