There is no better way to dispose off your old, derelict car which probably raises your tension-o-meter every time you see it than to scrap it. Remove all its pieces and sell them to the scrap yard. You make more money on a car you thought will only eat money (going forward) and yes, you gain that very coveted mental peace.

Scrapping car might look like one big huge task to many people and for some, who do not take help of technology, it might be one too. If you doing the scrapping yourself then of course it is going to be a hectic job and you might never find the time or the inclination to ever actually do it. However, today, it is one of those many jobs that have been made extremely easy by the use of modern communication and technology, and if you take their help, scrapping car is something you can do in your spare time at lunch.

However, few pointers before you actually start checking out the internet for information on this. Have a thorough look at your car before doing anything. It generally pays to know all the faults and nuances of your car before anyone else points them to you, because then it will cost you a lot of money. Get the small little problems fixed, fix that leaking hole, brush up the seat covers and clean up your car a little. Remember, the person who will buy your car to scrap will judge it by its looks to an extent. An old, really run down looking car might cost you the money you deserve for your car and that doesn't really make good business sense.

Next, get some running knowledge of your car. This is important because you don't want some one to take you for a ride by talking in jargons that you don't understand. All these small things go a long way in making sure that you get a good price of your old car which although is not in a condition to be driven but its spare parts still command a good price in the market.

After this initial sizing up of your car, check on the internet to find out the best salvage yard that does scrap car according to your needs. Choose the one with a license number as this ensures the best quality of work from the yard and also ensures that you get your work done in a proper way. Legal proceedings are also taken care of by these yards and they also provide the destruction certificate – mandatory by law, it is an indication that you disposed your old car in keeping in mind the environmental guidelines issued by the government.

After you find a suitable yard, fill in the form with your car details and wait for their call back. Now your part of the work in the entire operation is over and the salvage yard people will take over. They will come to your place to tow the car as soon as you are clear with the negotiations. They can come to your place to inspect and negotiate for the car prices too. This will be according to the way they handle operations. This done, you can give away your car to the salvage yard to be scrapped after which they will give you the much required destruction certificate.
