Yep, that’s right. Even if you lost the paperwork once upon a time at a 1989 New Year’s Eve party that went sideways, and ended up with your Toyota Corolla in a ditch, (even though you were the designated driver and actually stayed sober), we’ll still buy it. We don’t care how or why you lost the paperwork. As long as you’re the registered owner, we’ll not only pay your more cash for scrap cars, we’ll take care of all the paperwork for you too, just like we always do. Here at More Cash For Scrap, we make the whole scrap car removal process remarkably easy! So why haven’t you called us yet to recycle your junk car?
Perhaps your last memories of your car were driving across the Burrard Street Bridge on the way home from a Motley Crue concert when you were 19 years old. Or maybe it was when you still rocked a mullet and were trying to impress your new girlfriend with a sunset view from Prospect Point in Stanley Park. More than likely however, when you think about that car that you’ve had since the 80’s or 90’s, you think about the time it stalled on the Georgia Viaduct and you ended up on the News as that guy who held up traffic for over an hour… in Vancouver… In rush hour…
While that car may mean a lot to you, it may or may not be worth as it means. If the boys at Jackson Auto Repairs on East Hastings told you it was a junker, it probably is. So here are some of the things that determine just how much your vehicle is actually worth when we are talking about cash and not sentiment.
The vehicle’s age, condition, make and model are all taken into consideration when we make you an offer. Generally, scrap cars sell between $100 – $600 but there are many factors that are taken into consideration when determining the value of a scrap car, such as:
- Age of the vehicle
- Overall condition
- Drivability (if any)
- Value of spare parts
- Make of the vehicle
- Model of the vehicle
- Kilometers (if you are able to retrieve them)
It’s quick, easy and totally free. You have nothing to lose and more cash to gain. Just give us a call or text, or complete our online form to request a quote. An in-person appointment with one of our professional buyers may be scheduled, but often times it’s not even necessary. Once you accept our offer, we dispatch a driver to you right away, and because our agents live and work in the areas we service, it can often be done in as little as 15 minutes. Also, our cash for scrap knowledge means you will get the best price for your scrap car when you choose to recycle your car with us. You may even be sitting on a hidden junker gem and not even know it.
Scrap Car FAQ
Do you really pay cash?
Yes, we will pay you cash for your junk vehicle before we load it on to our truck.
What kind of vehicles do you buy?
Cars, trucks, SUV’s, vans, campervans, and buses.
Can you buy my car today?
Yes, we can pick up your scrap car within hours of our initial conversation.
How long does the process take?
Approximately 10-15 minutes from start to finish from when the tow truck arrives.
What documents do I need?
Photo identification to verify that you are the registered owner is all that’s required for scrap car removal.
Does our car need to be running in order for you to purchase it?
No, we will establish its condition during our phone call with you by getting the make, model, year, kilometers, and condition from you at the start.
What if I can’t find the keys?
No problem, we can work around that. It won’t prevent us from paying cash for scrap cars.
Does it matter if the car has one or more flat tires?
No, we can inflate any tires if necessary to help facilitate getting it on our truck, and we buy junk vehicles that don’t even have wheels, so what your car sits on is never an issue.
Can I remove certain parts from the vehicle, for example, the tires and wheels or the stereo or battery?
Yes, and we can discuss those options with you, but remember that this will impact the size of your cash payment.
How much cash will you give me for my car?
We base our quotes on real time data which includes current metal prices, the weight of your vehicle, the model year and how many kilometers are on the odometer.
Is the offer contingent on the condition of the vehicle?
No, you will be quoted a price based on the criteria in the question above. The quote won’t change even when the driver observes the car. So, what we say you’re getting paid, is what you’re actually getting paid.
If you make me an offer, is there a timeframe that might change that offer?
Metal prices fluctuate so it’s best to book pickup as soon as possible, but we are flexible and can work with you on a reasonable timeframe.
Do I need to have my ICBC insurance papers to sell my car?
No, you don’t. There is a simple solution to that and we take care of all the paperwork, so just get in touch with us and let us know ahead of time.
Can you purchase my car if there is a lien on it?
Unfortunately, no. If you have any outstanding debts on your scrap vehicle, you would have to have it settled before we could buy it.
Do I have to be present at the pickup?
No, we can arrange everything over the phone provided we see proof of valid photo identification, and our payment can be sent by etransfer if needed.
Can I sell an abandoned car?
Unfortunately, no. You would have to be the legal registered owner.
After I arrange a pickup time, what should I do?
Remove all your valuable belongings before we arrive. Please also remove valid license plates, they need to be returned to ICBC in order to cancel your insurance. If the car is parked anywhere other than private property, leave the license plates on until our driver arrives and he will be happy to remove them for you. If the plates have expired, they can be recycled with the car.
What if I change my mind about pickup?
No problem! Just make sure you give us fair notice so that our truck hasn’t already been dispatched to your location. If you are cancelling because you have been given a more substantial offer, let us know! In most cases we are prepared to match or beat your other offer.
