Blog | February 14th, 2018

If you have an old junk car sitting in your backyard or clogging up your garage, it might be time to do something about it. We’ve all heard the commercials about donating our old cars and many of us have even thought about doing it. Still, the process is cumbersome and we tend to shrug it off until ‘next week’. Well, here at Melbourne Metal Recycling we are advising that you get to work on scrapping your old car sooner than later. Why? Well, we’re glad that you asked. Let’s take a moment to talk about the benefits of ditching your old car while making a few bucks in the process.

Making Money Scrapping Your Old Car

It is an unfortunate fact of life that cars tend to wear down and lose their value rather quickly. Unless you are collecting rare cars, your vehicle is losing value every single day regardless if you are driving it or not. At some point, your old car is going to become an eye-sore more than an actual valuable piece of machinery but that doesn’t mean that you need to give up hope. As it turns out, there is a bit of money to be made when it comes to recycling your old unwanted vehicle. The best part? You don’t even have to transfer the car yourself! Let’s dig into the juicy details on how you can put a couple of extra bucks in your pocket as well as a few other benefits along the way.

1) We Remove the Vehicle! – That’s right. When you call to set up a vehicle scrap, we set up an appointment that meets your scheduling needs in order to pick up the thing ourselves. Our professional employees know how to safely transport your old, unwanted vehicles so we take care of that burden for you.

2) Reduce Your Fines!
– Did you know that you can actually get fined by the city for leaving junk cars on your property? It’s true! Certain residential areas have local legislation to prevent old cars from becoming an ‘eyesore’ to the rest of the neighbourhood.

3) Avoid Chemical Leakage – After a while, your old car will begin to leak and seep chemical buildup into your property and into the ground. This form of pollution is particularly damaging over a period of time.

4) Make Some Money
– Finally, and most importantly, when you hire Melbourne Metal Recycling to come pick up your old car, you make some money in the process. Depending on the make, model, year and condition of the car you can earn up to $9,900.
