When You Should Consider Car Removal Over Car Repairs

Posted on

Cars are expensive machines to run and keep in good condition, especially if you have an older model. At some point, you have probably contemplated whether or not it is worth the effort to keep this car going or whether you should just bite the bullet and upgrade. Car removal services can take your old car away for free, and in many cases, they will give you a good bit of cash as well. But when is this trade worth it? Here are a few reasons why you should seriously consider car removal over car repairs.

After A Crash

If you have been in any sort of motor vehicle accident and the car is relatively still intact, then it might be time to think about cutting your losses and selling it for scrap. Often fixing older cars costs a lot more than fixing cars made in the last ten or so years, and even once the old car is fixed, there is no guarantee it will run well for long. Car removal services can pick your car up even if it cannot drive and give you a quote for the price on the same day. It is, at the very least, worth checking out to see how much you can make towards getting a new, better car.

After Registration Has Expired

Once your registration has expired, it can cost a lot to get it back, especially if you need to put your car through the tests to see if it is still roadworthy. Once your rego has expired, it can also be very hard to sell the car, even if you think it runs perfectly fine. The only legal and easy way to get rid of these cars is through car removal, especially if you do not have a truck or trailer that you can move the car with on your own. 

When It Becomes Your Second Car

If you have already got a newer car and are keeping your old one for a rainy day, then it might be time to consider the pros and cons of keeping a second car. You will still have to pay for the services and registration, in addition to needing to change out the petrol every once in a while if you don't drive it. Trying to sell it can take ages and be a lot of hassle, whereas car removal companies will come right to your door. If you have one car, then you really don't need to keep your beater as it is more trouble than it is worth.
