Most people just figure that if they want to get rid of a junk vehicle they can just haul it away themselves. The motivation to do it themselves is usually because they are trying to get some money out of the vehicle and not just give it away for free.
This makes sense but is it really worth the hassle? A person first needs to think about where they can actually take the vehicle. You can’t just drive it down to the local dump and pull in. You will have to find a car buyers Adelaide center that will even take vehicles.
There may not be one anywhere close to your location. Then there is the issue of if it is running. You will have to have some way to tow the vehicle to the recycling center if it can’t be driven. The other issue that is usually of concern for most unwanted junk vehicles is title.
No recycling center is going to accept a vehicle to crush without proof that the vehicle is yours. Some states even require a sheriff documented affidavit for vehicles that are not titled. So the question becomes: is it really worth the headache to get $50 from the vehicle since the price of steel just isn’t what it used to be?
