How do I scrap a vehicle? – So you have this vehicle you have not been driving for a while, and it is no longer roadworthy. In the past that would have been a source of alarm, but not anymore.

That is because you can scrap the vehicle and gather in a reasonable amount of cash.

If you have decided to scrap your vehicle yourself and sell the scrap part. You will want to start from the power train component, you can have an engineer take out the engine and the transmission parts. You can then remove the electronic components like the radio, window motor and lock motors. You can sell off the metal body as a whole or in parts. You could also salvage the chairs and turn them into scrap too. The tyres and rims can then be sold off as scrap too.
Instead, if you decide to drive your vehicle into a junk yard, they will give you an approximate value of your car and the scrapping of the vehicle will be done in the yard by professionals. This is the equivalent of selling your junk car. There are other ways to get rid of your car that doesn’t involve you selling it too.
You could donate your car to charity; in this case you don’t need to sell the scrap vehicle. All you need to do is complete the paperwork that transfers the legal ownership of the car from you to the charity organization. The charity can then choose what is to be done to the car.
The other way to get rid of your car without selling it is to give it out. Often, the vehicles that end up as scrap can become roadworthy with only a few major repairs. You could give such a vehicle to your college son or neighbour who would get by with the repairs and return it to the road.
