Many car owners become emotionally attached to their vehicles even though they are not living, breathing things. It seems strange, but we have an attachment to any car that we purchase but especially our first car. We generally give it a name and we have fond memories of it as it carried us through our teenage years and into our early 20s. There are many mornings when the car wouldn’t start and we cursed at it, but eventually after the numerous tries it would start and all would be good in the world again. However, the time will come when we have to say goodbye to this car and many people find this an incredibly difficult time indeed.
We would love to sell the car on, but at this point it has become a liability and it is no longer mechanically safe. It now needs to become a scrap car in Perth and so we need to find a last resting place for it. We hope that some of the parts can be used and sold to other similar car owners and our car can live on through those. There are a number of benefits for taking your vehicle to the local scrap car dealer and the following are some of those.
* It can provide spare parts – Obviously your old car is never going to be on the road again, but that doesn’t mean that some useful parts can’t be used in other similar cars. It is reassuring to know that our old car just isn’t going to be crushed and sold off for scrap.
* Eco-logically sound methods – By selling your car to the local scrap dealer, you’re doing your bit for the environment and helping to reduce your carbon footprint. They will remove all the liquids from the car which means that they won’t be seeking into the water table and causing pollution.
Just because it’s the end for you and your first car, doesn’t mean that it can’t live on in another vehicle. The responsible thing to do is to take it to your local scrap car dealer and let them decide its fate.
