Getting rid of your old car is one of the first things you need to do when you’ve finally decided to get a brand new and better one. You have three main options: find a buyer, go to an auto wrecker, or donate to charity. To help you make the best decision, here are some of the pros and cons of those three options.
Selling Your Old Car
Selling your old car is the most conventional way to get rid of it. You can approach a certified dealer and ask them if they can help you find a buyer or if they want to buy it. If you decide to do this, make sure you negotiate well to avoid getting a bad deal. You can also personally find a private buyer yourself. The main con is that it can be difficult and time-consuming to find a buyer for used cars.
Finding an Auto Wrecker
There are a lot of Mitsubishi wreckers in NZ, so be wise when choosing which one to work with. This is a good choice if your car isn’t in its best condition anymore. A wrecker will assess every part and tell you how much it costs based on its current condition. They can buy it themselves or refer you to someone who needs that certain part. They can also give you an offer on the scrap metals of the car.
Donating to a Charity
Most people who donate their used car do so to enjoy a tax exemption and because they don’t want to go through the process of finding a buyer or wrecking the car anymore. Moreover, it can also help a charity with their operations.
Whichever you choose, make sure to handle it properly and wisely to still get the most out of your old car. Use the cash you will earn to increase the money you have to buy a new and better car.
