Junk cars mean cash
If you’ve ever gone car shopping, you know a used car, even a year old, costs less than brand new one. That’s the way the car market works. A vehicle begins depreciating in value the moment it is driven off the lot.
Make and model do help determine price. How the vehicle is driven, maintained and so on also affect the value of the car. Eventually the car is going to be worn out.
But unlike a lot of things that lose value, an old car is never completely worthless. Anything with wheels, including a motorcycle, is full of valuable metals. This metal can be recycled. In fact, your car right now contains a lot of metal which has been recycled. On average, a new car has 25 to 35 percent recycled metal.
That recycled metal has to come from somewhere and old cars are a major source of metal. AutoWranglers.com specializes in buying old vehicles, no matter what condition they are in, for this global recycling market.
“We don’t care, we just want to buy them,” said Barry Barbee, AutoWranglers.com president. “We don’t care if the engine is in pieces and the transmission has fallen out. We will buy it.”
AutoWranglers.com pays close attention to global prices for scrap metal to make sure they can offer the best prices. But, people need to understand that the market for steel does go up and down.
“A lot of people see just the gold and silver markets are WAY up. They think the steel market should also be way up,” said Tina Wiley, a chief buyer for Autowranglers.com . “But the market for non precious metal is not the same as precious metal. They go up and down independently.”
The rapidly changing market means today’s prices could be higher or lower than tomorrow’s prices. That means the value of a vehicle being sold into the scrap market can change.
So, if you have an old vehicle you want to see for scrap, should you wait for the market to change or get rid of it now?
“That’s something you have to decide,” Mr. Barbee said. “All I can tell you is the price does change, but with an old car, the price is not going to change by hundreds of dollars in a week’s time. We will offer you the best price we can depending on the market prices that day.”
