When you drive your car as long as possible, you get the most bang for your buck and can avoid the car dealership for a long time. There may be little quirks that you have to deal with as the car gets older, but if it gets you where you need to go, it may be worth it. If you have decided to get rid of your older car, here are some places you can take it.
Once the car is unfit for driving, it can head to the nearest scrap metal recycling company Byram Township NJ. Your car will be recycled in an environmentally friendly way and you could end up with some cash in your pocket.
Some places take donated cars to provide transportation to people who can’t afford a car on their own. Make sure the car is clean and still drivable. The charity may come and pick up the car for you. This donation will most likely be tax-deductible so be sure to save your receipt.
If you’re in the market for a new car, you may have the chance to trade in the old one. Does your car still have some life left in it? Dealers are always looking for used cars to sell along with the new ones they have on the lot. You can get a deal on the new car you want while getting rid of the old one.
Once the car is on its last legs, it’s time to take it to the nearest junkyard. These places pay you for your clunker because they can sell the parts. You could try and sell the parts yourself, but it’s much easier to drop it off, get some cash and move on.
Get your old car out of your driveway through one of these avenues once you’re ready for a new car to drive.
