Unfortunately, even the most reliable car sooner or later becomes worthless. This happens over time or with a serious accident. Many owners of such cars rust for years in the garage or near the house. However, there are ways to get rid of iron trash and even make money at the same time. One of them is recycling.
What is required for this
Before selling your old-age machine, you must dispose of it. The procedure for the delivery of cars for scrap this year has changed. Previously, in order to remove the vehicle from the register in connection with the termination of its operation, it was enough to present the owner’s statements, documents on the car and state vehicles to the traffic police. numbers. Now the owner of the car must first contact one of the specialized companies and get there a certificate (certificate) of disposal. Further:
fill out an application for deregistration of a car (it can be downloaded on the Internet and obtained directly from the state traffic inspectorate);
We appeal to the registration department of the traffic police.
In addition to documents for the car and license plates, you will need to present papers confirming ownership of the vehicle (for example, DCT), the owner’s passport or a notarized power of attorney (if the application is not submitted by the car owner).
The state duty for removing cars from the register for recycling is not charged.
Where to sell a recycled car
There are not many legal ways to sell recycled vehicles.
The first is to hand over the car to the scrap metal collection point. The second option is to contact one of the private companies buying such vehicles. The third way is to sell a car for parts.
The advantages of the first method include speed. The main disadvantage is the too small amount that is offered at the recycling points. The average price per 1 kilogram of scrap metal now varies from 4 to 8 rubles. In the capital, the cost reaches 25 rubles. Therefore, with this method of selling a recycled car, the profit will be 10-30 thousand, not more.
In specialized companies involved in the purchase of recycled vehicles, they can offer more. Some of these offices offer in advertising up to 90 percent of the market value of the car. But you must understand that such an amount is paid extremely rarely.
It all depends on:
vehicle technical condition;
the presence or absence of documents for the car;
No one will pay much for an old recycled car with a completely rusted body and a lot of technical malfunctions.
Selling recycled machines for parts is the most time-consuming option that will take a lot of time. However, you can make good money. For example, if the car has been in an accident, where it received serious damage to the body, but its main components and assemblies remained in good condition. After disposal, parts can be sold through online ads or print media.
In addition to the legal ways of implementing recycled vehicles, there is an illegal option that scammers and dishonest owners of the vehicle use successfully. After recycling, the car is sold as usual. As a result, the new owner loses time, money and gets a bunch of problems, since it is forbidden by law to drive a recycled car. True, having decided to use this method of selling a recycled vehicle, the seller may also get into an unpleasant situation. When the buyer discovers a deception and challenges the contract of sale through a court, the money will have to be returned.
