Selling my junk car in Enfield, UK can be a very difficult task. Not only will you have to contend with the local council to haul your vehicle away, but you’ll also have to secure an ‘out of hours’ disposal service and incur some costs associated with taking your car to the scrap yard. I know that I personally would rather keep my car and use it to push around the town, then get rid of it and buy a new one! So how does one go about getting rid of their old car?
The first thing that you need to do is contact your local council. Your local council will be able to tell you where your car will be disposed of once it’s sold. Some local authorities will allow you to have a certain period of time after your vehicle has been put on the auction block to actually pick up and take your car away. If this is the case, your car will be picked up by a waste removal company that will dismantle your vehicle and recycle the spare parts. This process can be extremely environmentally friendly for you as you no longer need to worry about disposing of unwanted scrap metal!
The next thing that you need to do is find a junk car removal company that is in operation in Enfield. Once you have located a reputable junk car removal service in Enfield, you can start contacting them to find out when your car will be picked up and brought to the scrap yard. Once you have this information, it’s just a matter of scheduling a pick up date so that your vehicle can be picked up on the date scheduled. A reputable disposal service will quote an approximate price for taking care of your junk car; you must not let this figure ever exceed more than three hundred pounds.
Once you have scheduled the pick-up, your car will be disassembled at the disposal service. The workers at the disposal service will pack everything into small bins and take it to the scrap yard for you. Your car will be weighed and any parts that are over one pound will be removed. Any car parts that are less than this will be taken to the nearest recycling centre. You will need to sign a document stating that your car is to be recycled.
Once your car is at the scrap yard, it will be inspected by a trained shredder. Shredding machines are used to completely remove car bodywork and wheels, as well as the frame and any other internal parts. You will need to be able to prove that your car is indeed junk before the machine will accept it, so it is advised that you bring along some authentic documentation such as registration plates, or the year and make of your car. Once your car is ready to be cleared away, you will need to arrange for its transport to your new home.
Not only will the disposal service take your car away, they will also clear it down too. Your car can be left at the local council garage sale, but it is best to get it sorted out locally first. If you cannot afford to hire a removal company, then you could try and sort out your car yourself. If you feel comfortable enough to do so, then all you will need is a small pair of metal scissor tools. A screwdriver, chisel and small hammer can be used to do the job. Once your car has been cleaned up and any parts that you no longer need are removed, you should put your car back on the road where you will be able to find a buyer.
