If you want to get rid of your old car and you anticipate that you will not get much for it, a good alternative is to sell it for parts, since you can get more economic benefit in this way. In this case, vehicle repair shops will be your main buyers, since they will know how to use a part of your car that is still in good condition, although you can also choose to sell it over the Internet.
Steps to follow:
One option to find buyers is to advertise on specialized Internet portals. There are many and there you can contact both workshops and individuals who are interested in buying car parts.
In the advertisement, give the maximum details about your vehicle: brand, model, year of manufacture, etc. It is also interesting that you explain its condition and the most important repairs it has undergone, so that the potential buyer can get an idea of how the piece that interests them will be.
Another alternative is to go directly to the workshops in your city to offer the sale of your car for parts. Thus, the buyer will be able to directly check the condition of your vehicle and assess whether or not he is interested in buying the parts. If you do not dominate the sector, try to be accompanied by someone who is a specialist to avoid losing out in the business.
As for the infrastructure, you must have a place to leave the car while you do not sell it completely and have the knowledge to disassemble it as you sell a part. Otherwise, you will need to hire a mechanic to do it, which is an expense that you should take into account before deciding to sell your car for parts.
Another economic issue that you should assess is that of transport costs in the event that you have to send the pieces outside your city. They will be heavy packages, so the shipping price will not be cheap.
Once you have sold all the parts of the car, to get rid of the unusable remains of the car you must go to a scrap yard and permanently deregister the car. The center will handle this process.
