When a vehicle gets damaged, wrecked or broken, many owners wonder if they can sell it for parts and earn good profit. Of course, it is possible to make good money by selling your vehicle for parts. However, it is not a good choice to break an automobile for parts in the garage yourself.

In this post, we have discussed the common myth of selling a vehicle for parts:

Can I break my car for parts?

Yes, you can sell your automobile that has been sitting unused in your garage for years. You can break and sell it for parts and earn thousands of dollars. Usually, the parts like transmissions, engines, frames and body panels can get you huge dollars when sold as second hand component.

However, it will require great mechanical knowledge and a lot of efforts and time to break an automobile for parts. Therefore, if you want to avoid the hassles and make a good profit in a fairly short period of time, it is best to take the help of a professional service through which you can easily sell your automobile for parts.

Even if you have adequate know-how about automobiles, you may still not able to dispose a plenty of harmful, hazardous and corrosive fluids such as grease, oil, Freon, antifreeze, etc. These toxic fluids might leach out of your vehicle and pollute the environment. In addition to this, it becomes very difficult to deal with an unwanted automobile once you start parting it out for parts and components.

Generally, it is best to acquire the services of a professional auto removal service or a scrap yard. Since they know how to discard the hazardous items of unwanted automobiles in an eco-friendly way.

How to sell my car parts for cash?

Often people find it very difficult to sell a car for parts as they don’t find the right buyer who is ready to take the whole of it in cash. For example, if you are looking to sell a transmission of the Toyota Camry (2008), you may find a buyer who is ready to pay good cash for the transmission but not ready to buy the automobile. 

When a vehicle is in a mint-condition, you can expect to get a good price for it. However, if it is damaged or wrecked, the only best way to sell it for cash is acquiring the services of professional junk auto buyers or cash for car companies. This will also save you from paying for a tow truck to remove and tow your vehicle to a scrap yard. Other than this, you can also consider donating your automobile, but you won’t get a dollar for it except a tax deduction incentive.  

In conclusion

If you have the time, skills and space where you can wreck your car for parts, it will prove to be the best option to sell it for parts. However, if you are a busy person and need to get rid of a damaged or broken automobile quickly so you can make space for a new one. You can sell it to your local junk auto buyers or car removal services and save yourself the hassle of doing the tedious chore of parting out your automobile.
