Do you have an old vehicle just taking up space on your property? Maybe it's created an eyesore in your backyard or even right out in front of the house in your drivewa.? If you are finally ready to part ways with your old junker, there may be a local service that could make the entire process easy for you. Here's why you should contact the local salvage yard and inquire about getting your vehicle towed.
The Tow May Be Free
Salvage yards are always looking for "new" old cars they can tow and sell for parts. Because they want you to sell your old car to them, many salvage yards are willing to send a tow truck out to you for free. This will make getting rid of your old vehicle even easier than you thought it would be.
You Might Get Money for the Effort
Not only are most salvage yards willing to tow your car away for you, but you might also be able to actually get paid for it. Keep in mind of course that salvage yards are looking to make a profit on the parts so they aren't going to offer you a ton of money, but something is better than the nothing you are getting for your old vehicle right now.
Your Neighbors Will Stop Complaining
No one likes an eyesore in the neighborhood. Even if your neighbors haven't said anything to you about your old junker, they've surely noticed. Anyone in the area of your home looking to sell theirs has probably noticed it more than most. Any serious eyesore in the neighborhood could potentially bring down the value of the entire area if it really gets out of hand. Your local homeowners' association might even get involved if you allow a junker to sit in plain sight for a long time. Contact a local salvage yard and you'll be able to make everyone happy while taking a headache off of your hands.
It's Better for the Environment
Once your old car is taken to the salvage yard, it'll be taken apart piece by piece. Salvage yards are usually pretty adept at being able to recycle or re-use a large percentage of every vehicle they take in. By allowing your parts to be re-used by someone else, that's one more person or possibly quite a few who won't have to order a new part from the manufacturer. If more people re-use old parts, this will benefit the environment both through the reduced production of new parts and reduced waste of old parts.
