What Is Your Scrap Car’s Value?

cash for junk car

If your car is not performing like it used to, not as reliable or good-looking anymore, maybe it’s time to get rid of it. But don’t rush into making a quick decision and closing a fast buy. No matter the condition of your scrap car, truck, SUV or van, you need to clearly understand its value to get the best price. Here are the factors you should be considering:


Driveable vs Non-Drivable Car

Clearly, a driveable car is worth more than a completely broken down one. Usually, other scrap car salvage companies will also charge for towing of a non-drivable car, but not us – Boston Junk Car will tow your car in any condition absolutely for free!


Time Sensitivity

For some junk cars, seasonality can affect the cost. For example, scrap 4X4 and SUV cars rise in price during the colder months or when the weather is bad. There’s another variable for large cars: you can get more money for a junk car when gas prices go down. Evidently, convertibles have higher value during spring and summer months. Keep in mind that no matter how New England weather treats your car, you can always drive up or down the coast where you might get a better deal. At the same time, clearly, time devalues your car every day, especially if it’s not in a driving condition. Different parts of the car are more likely to deteriorate when the junk car isn’t in use. So it is a time-sensitive issue!


Auto Salvage vs Scrap Metal

ARS Car Towing & Boston Junk Car will give you more cash for your junk car than any scrap metal service. In addition, we don’t just tow and compress the scrap metal carcass of your car, we dispose of all the other materials and fluids in an ecologically-friendly way! If you still have parts in your car that are functional, you will receive more cash for them. The alternator, starter motor, new tires, and your onboard GPS system are all worth something.

5 Benefits of De-Cluttering Your Garage

We all know that cleaning out the garage is probably the least fun thing to do on a weekend afternoon. But taking advantage of the task can ultimately afford you storage space for organization and will save you the trouble of having to do it again later, as long as you maintain it. Its main purpose is to store our most valuable possessions: our cars. So we need to treat it as such.

According to some surveys, roughly 25% of homeowners use their garages for their vehicles. The others can’t due to clutter. About the same amount have admitted to feeling embarrassed at the sight of their garage. But keeping your car safe and secure isn’t the only reason you should be thinking about clearing stuff out. Here are the top 5 benefits of decluttering your garage.

To Park Your Car

Seems kind of obvious, doesn’t it? But this is a garage’s intended purpose. It’s not necessarily a matter of having a place to store your vehicle when it’s not in use but keeping it protected. Weather can cause damage during all seasons – from sleet, hail, rain, and snow to UV rays, overheating, and rusting.

It can also reduce the chance of having your car subjected to things falling from trees, trees themselves, and bird droppings, which are highly acidic and can cause serious aesthetic injury when combined with heat and cold. Let’s not forget, parking your car elsewhere, like on the street, also exposes your car to potential accidents and theft. If you have a garage, use it.

Protect Your Valuables

While this may sound redundant to the first point, there is more to protecting your car than just damage and theft. That is, so long as your garage is also locked. It’s protective storage. Not only is security being employed, but you’re also safeguarding yourself from insurance hassles should something happen to your vehicle outside of a garage.

The same goes for anything else of value you decide to store in there, like a bicycle, refrigerator, surfboard, or memorabilia with sentimental value.

Save Your Money

While you will most likely save money on potential car repairs and insurance woes by keeping your car parked in the garage, there are other ways you’ll be saving money too. Most people tend to store tools and sometimes even appliances in their garages.

When you declutter your garage to organize everything in there, you won’t have to go out shopping for something new every time you think you’ve lost what you’ve been looking for. And when you clean it all out you can earn some extra cash with… a garage sale!

Have Space to Tinker

Now that you have that open space, you can finally have a chance to install that workbench you always wanted. Or, if you like to get greasy, you’ll now have the opportunity to brush up on your mechanic skills. Electrical outlets in the garage also make it handy to tinker with electronics and other gadgets as well.

Keep Away Rodents and Critters

While we often think of keeping things inside the garage, we forget about what we want to be kept out. Rats, mice, raccoons, possums, and insect nests sometimes plague homeowners – especially when items are kept outside and uncovered. These rodents and insects are not only pests but can also cause destruction. Reduce the mess, weatherproof your garage, and keep unwanted guests out.
