If you think your car is SCRAP, then it is more than likely to be considered scrap and there is always somebody looking to buy your motor vehicle and the good reusable car parts it has to offer.
In this day and age you just cannot ‘fix-up’ a modern day scrap car as easily as you think you can. It takes an immense amount of time, money and resources to competently refurbish a project of such caliber. Rebuilding a car or even just part thereof requires huge amounts of time and effort, cost efficient input and the most important ingredient of all, the expert ‘know-how’ to do the job right the first time.
New cars are designed to reach a certain life expectancy in the harsh conditions which invariably the motor vehicle must survive, or nobody will buy the make or model of motor vehicle unless it is cheap. We have reached a benchmark in modern time and vehicle manufacturers are moving more and more towards the 'disposable motor vehicle'.
New cheap cars are always tempting to the buyer and are wanted no matter how the public denominator envisages the vehicle. If it means buying a cheap ‘throw away’ or 'disposable' motor vehicle such as some of the imports on offer, mass produced in places like China and Korea, then there are many takers who would rather run the risk of laying out extra money than buying or repairing a scrap car.
There is a saying; “You can’t fix scrap", no matter how positive it may seem, looks can be deceiving. For example, a well maintained 7 year old car that has light front end accident damage, is more likely to be considered a 'write-off' and uneconomical to repair by insurance company standards. In South Africa, almost 70% of motorists are uninsured.
Modern day recycling of motor vehicles and just about everything else that we can touch, is essential to the existance of the human race and our global survival. The recycling process reduces the carbon footprint, thereby positively reducing climate change and global warming effects which we are experiencing.
Automotive scrap yards are 'good' for the environment and we must give them credit and support them for the important role that they play.
The auto body, engine, gearbox, differential, steering and suspension components and almost every other mechanical or electrical component of such an old car or car that has reached it's 'shelf life' or 'sell-by-date', will inevitably land up being stripped for the good reusable parts and the balance of such vehicle will be sent to the smelting plants and recycled into refined steel, recycled plastic, glass and rubber goods.
Cars and trucks that have not been well looked after will inevitably give you no end of trouble especially if you don’t know how to fix the problems economically and efficiently, no matter how insignificant the problem may seem you will probably throw good money after bad money.
Towing services, mechanics and motor spares cost money and when buying a new or used motor car, these points need to be taken into account. If you don’t understand what the cost implications are to rebuild and refurbish a modern day car, packed with complicated electronics and sophisticated engine and gearbox components then it would be best to budget carefully and ‘Sell your Car for Scrap’.
