Signs It’s Time to Junk Your Car 

A great car is something that shouldn’t be taken for granted. Not only does your vehicle get you where you need to go, but it’s also something that’s full of memories. While you may love your car, there’s no doubt that at some point, you’ll likely outgrow it. When it’s time to move on, junk car recycling can be a great way to breathe new life into a vehicle that’s served you well. Here are a few signs that it’s time to junk your car—

Your Family Is Expanding

If your family is gaining another member, your current car may no longer be practical, safe, or large enough to accommodate your family. This is one of the best reasons to say goodbye to your current set of wheels, as safety and convenience are top priorities when a little one is joining the mix. 

Your Car Isn’t Safe

Perhaps the number one reason to consider junk car recycling is that your vehicle just isn’t safe anymore. Its lack of safety may be due to a number of things, including having been in a serious wreck or being so old that it no longer meets safety standards. If your vehicle isn’t safe for you, keep in mind that selling it may mean putting someone else’s life in danger. When this is the case, the best thing that you can do is choose junk car recycling. 

Resale Value Is Low

In some cases, selling your old vehicle simply isn’t worth it because its resale value is too low. This may be the case if the vehicle no longer runs or needs such significant repairs that the costs of repairs are worth more than the vehicle itself. The good news is that when you sell your car for scrap, you can get paid. This might be the only way to make a little moolah off of your vehicle. 

Your Car Is Old or Has 150,000+ Miles on It

If your vehicle is over 20-30+ years old or has more than 150,000 miles on it, it probably isn’t very safe, fuel-efficient, or valuable anymore. If you’re ready to move on, junk car recycling is a great option.
