How Much Is My Car Worth?

You've spent a lot of money, time, and energy on your car, and when it's time to move on, it's perfectly reasonable to want to get as much money out of it as possible when you sell it privately.

However, figuring out how much it's worth when it's busted beyond repair can be a bit complicated. 

It largely depends on whether your car has a lot of salvageable parts and materials. 

At ABCM Car Removal, we deal with busted junkers every day, and we have a knack for calculating a car's true value even when most people look at it as a useless heap of garbage. Let's go over how that's done. 

How Much You Should Get For Your Car

Car Value Per Recycling Value

The first thing we look at when evaluating your junker's value is its recycling value. This is determined by the number of recyclable materials we can salvage from it. This will help determine the price for a scrap car.

As you probably know, different makes and models contain different amounts of steel, polymer, and other materials that may be of use in other industries, or even for car manufacturers themselves. 

we'll look at the supposed amount of recyclable materials in your car by weight, figure out how much each of those materials is worth, and use that as a base for our cash offer. 

Then, we must consider how much damage there is. Therefore you need to give us an accurate description of your vehicle during the phone consultation phase.

Note any substantial rust, missing portions from wrecks, and other issues so our quote matches the removal expert's offer on-site. 

Make Some Money With Your Junk Car

Salvageable Parts

Another factor is how many parts we can get for resale. If a vehicle simply isn't worth repairing due to engine problems, we know that plenty of other parts are sellable.

If a car has gone through an accident-based fire, the number of usable parts lowers dramatically. 

We can't expect you to tell us about every functional part, but a general explanation of how the car runs or doesn't run will at least let us know what to expect, and we can add that to our quoted offer. 

Just so you know, we look for parts of all kinds. This includes rims, side panels, radios, fuel injectors, carburettors, alternators, and everything in between. 

These parts add a lot to the overall value of your car because we can resell them to customers with function versions of your make and model.

While the parts don't demand the same price as brand-new parts, they are valuable enough to increase the value of your junker.
