When you are in the process of purchasing a replacement vehicle, (new or used) most of your time and effort will focus on the automobile that you are about to own ? but how much thought have you given to the disposal of your old vehicle??
Are you just going to accept the trade-in amount offered by the car dealership or have you considered the option of selling that old car as scrap to auto recyclers?
When trading in an old car at a dealership, the value offered is usually much lower than the car owner is expecting. This is due to the fact that the dealership is looking to make a profit through resale or as scrap to a local car recycling company. Conversely, the dealership may offer you an inflated value for your trade-in when they otherwise would have offered you the same amount (or even more) in the form of a discount off the original price.?For that reason, it is always best to discuss the value of your trade-in after you have fully negotiated a price for the vehicle you are about to purchase. In fact, to determine the true value of your trade-in it may even best to not even tell them you have a trade-in until after you have negotiated a deal for the new vehicle.
Reasons to consider selling your old vehicle to auto recyclers rather than trading it in for the purchase of another vehicle include:
Additional benefits of recycling your old car as auto scrap include:
