Three Tips about What to Do With Your Junk Car

If you have an old car that is not running and you are a do-it-yourself auto repair person, then you need to make a list of the parts needed to fix the car. Because your car is old, it may not be worth repairing. The following are two tips on obtaining low cost parts, and then what to do if the repair cost is going to be too expensive.

Buy Rebuilt Auto Parts
Many auto parts are very expensive but are available as rebuilt units. Examples are alternators, engines and transmissions. Many rebuilt parts, such as rebuilt alternators, can be found at an auto parts store.

Local auto salvage yards
Your local junk yard will have a large assortment of vehicles that you can scavenge for parts. In many cases, you will have to bring your own tools to remove the part from the junk car. Although some salvage yards have fixed prices for particular parts, many businesses will negotiate the price of the parts that you are interested in. Either way, this is a low cost source for auto parts.

Sell your car to a salvage dealer
If you get to the point where it looks like it is simply going to be too expensive to repair your old car, call a salvage dealer. They will pay you money for your junk car and provide free towing. One example of this type of company is Cash 4 Junk Cars. You can learn more at their website.
