What To Do Before Wrecking Your Car?

As a wrecker with many years of experience buying cars, we’ve found that following these steps can really make the whole process a lot easier for both you and the wrecker.

Empty the Tank: Avoid wasting fuel by driving the car until the tank is nearly empty or drain it for other use. You won’t get any extra money for fuel at a wrecker, so best to to use it before getting rid of it.

Remove Plates And Cancel The Registration: Take off the registration plates before handing over the car, you can do this yourself with a screw driver or ask the wrecker for assistance. After the plates have been removed, hand over the plates at a Driver and Vehicle Services Centre to end the registration. You can even get a refund on the rego.

Cancel Insurance Policies: Transfer or cancel insurance policies associated with the vehicle, you could potentially get refund on the remaining portion of the policy.

Clean Out Valuables: Before selling, thoroughly search for and remove any personal or valuable items from the car, this could include money, electronics, or clothing, tools and other personal belonging. Once your car is sent to the wrecking yard, it’s very difficult to recover any personal items from the car.

Research Prices: Determine the fair value of your car by researching prices and obtaining multiple quotes from a number of wreckers. At Perth Car Buyer we’re committed to offering a competitive deal for your car no matter the condition.

Have Alternative Transport: If the car you are wrecking is your primary mode of transportation, arrange for alternative means of travel, such as public transport, cycling or buying / renting a replacement car.
