To ensure that you make the best choice when searching for “sell my car in Ottawa” below are some of the important things to look out for when choosing a scrap car removal company.

The Location of the Company

The location of the junk car removal company is essential as this dictates the distance for which you will have to travel to sell the car for junk. Choosing a scrap car removal company that is within your locality can save you from the added cost which may otherwise be incurred as a result of moving the scrap car to the junk yard. Choosing a scrap car removal company outside your locality may also affect the overall amount for which your car is being sold as the scrap car removal company may also deduct the cost of pickup from the cash offered.  

Help With Paperwork

When planning on selling off your scrap car, there is the need to understand that there are some paperwork to be completed. To ensure that the process is seamless and hassle-free, it is recommended that you choose a junk removal company that is committed to helping you with the complexities associated with the process. In addition, be sure to choose a company that is both transparent and reliable to avoid ending up with liabilities after you have made the sale.  

Cash Payment

While some companies may offer to pay with check, it is recommended that you ensure that the issuer is a trusted company to prevent against fraudulent practices.  

5 Things To Do Before Selling Your Scarp Car

When planning on patronizing a company specialized in junk car removal in Ottawa, there is the need to ensure that you have made up your mind to indeed off your car as a scrap car in Ottawa. When planning on getting rid of your car, the need to make top dollar is paramount and as such, you should know some of the basic things to do to ensure that you make the best use of the car and get the best value.  

Thinking of selling off your car as scrap vehicle, below are some of the recommended steps to take.  


1. Use Up the Fuel  

If your car is still in good working order, there is the need to make the best use of the car and the amount which you must have invested in fueling it. Should your vehicle be movable, it is recommended that you drive it around till the fuel is exhausted. Exhausting the fuel saves you money which may otherwise have been lost during the scrap car sales process. This step is especially important when your tank is filled with fuel. Taking into consideration the expensive nature of fuel, we suggest that you use up your vehicle’s fuel before calling on the scrap car removal company. It is however not recommended that you take out the field rom the vehicle as this process is dangerous and may cause more harm than good. A great way to also exhaust the fuel in the car would be to drive it to the scrap yard as this may earn you a few extra dollars.  

2. Remove The Registration Plates

When selling your car to a recycler, there is the need to note that this is quite different from selling your car to a dealership and as such, there is no need to hand over your car alongside the registration plates. Since your car is being scrapped, ensure that you take out the number plates. After taking out the number plates, ensure that you return it to the RMS for cancellation. However, this may not be needed when selling your car to a dealership as they may be interested in buying your car with registration thus making the number plates an essential part of the sale.  

3. What is the Value of the Parts From Your Car?

Vehicle parts are in high demands and as such, knowing the scrap value for your car parts can help you make better decisions as regards the offering value. If your car is one of those vehicles with rare parts, then you may need to take out some important and rather valuable parts of the car and sell it off separately before scrapping. It is however important to note that if you take out the engine and other essential parts such as the gearbox parts, the scrap yard may reject the vehicle as you would be left with a junk vehicle. An alternative to this however is to hire the services of a moving company to transport the vehicle to junk yard. Ensure that all expensive parts of the car including expensive rims, stereo, navigator and more are removed and sold for added cash before taking it for car recycling in Ottawa.  

4. Prepare yourself Before the Sale

Before contacting the scrap yard for a cash for scrap in Ottawa, there is the need to ensure that you are appropriately protected by preparing the needed paperwork for the sale process. Be sure to have all the essential and needed documents including the current registration papers, ownership, keys, and driver’s license. For persons with finance owning on their vehicles, it is recommended that you have the current balance up to date and obtain a copy to prove this. 

5. Remove All Belongings

When planning on selling your car for scrap, there is the need to ensure that you properly check the car through for all signs of personal belongings. Be sure to strip the car of all valuables.
