You may have already come to the conclusion that your vehicle undoubtedly falls into the classification of a scrap car.
Maybe it's rusting away or is a non-runner but what else would qualify your vehicle scrap ?
Well as close as we all get to our cars, we are still going to have to make the decision to get rid of them at some point. Now some of us will be under the impression that although your car might be old and barely starts, it is still of some value within the resale market. Sometimes this will be true and your car will have held some kind of resale value within the market place but in many instances the real truth of the matter is that it will only have a scrap value.
So before you advertise your old motor in the local newspaper for a substantial figure lets run through a few easy check points to make sure you aren't trying to sell on what is effectively a scrap car.
And remember selling on a car as being roadworthy when it is not could seriously come back and bite you in the backside.
So if the following applies to your car then you may well have a scrap car in your possession;
Is your vehicle over 10 years old
Has the MOT Expired
Is the MOT short
Is the bodywork in a bad way
Does it have any engine or gearbox problems
Would the vehicle prove to be an uneconomical repair
Does the cost of the work required to make it roadworthy be more than the value of what the car could be.
If you have answered yes to any of the questions above then there is a good chance that your current vehicle could only be able to be sold for scrap and you should avoid selling your car on to a new owner as it could be at worst unroadworthy and dangerous to drive.
I hope that this article has helped you to make the decision as to whether you should sell you car or scrap your car.
