Pro’s and Cons of Selling a Car to Wreckers

Many of u have the car and when our car gets old or rusty we try to sell it by any mode to get the best price but sometimes we are not able to sell it to any casual client so we look for wreckers but here I am going to list down some of the pros and cons of wreckers to help you out in your future deals, if you plan with them.


  • If your car is old and almost rusty then, wreckers are the only one who will be there to buy your car whereas other clients will just nod you away.
  • You don’t need much marketing to do before contacting these wreckers. They are almost available every time, you can just call them and ask them whatever your questions are and you can sell your car to
  • They will not ask much about your car or the model or anything about it. You can sell any type of car to them or any brand of the car in the market.
  • The wreckers are only concerned about the metal of your car and engine, not the car itself.
  • You will get a handsome amount in your car, in fact even if you want to sell your new car to them, they will give you a hefty price as they know the price of your car and the market price of the brand you are using.


  • You can sell the cars to the wreckers easily but depends on the location, you might not find the cost or the price you expected. Every place has different payouts and the demand of the metal varies differently from place to place.
  • Not all junkyards people or wreckers will come to our house or place to pick up the car. Some of them are nice enough to do that but, with every place the personnel changes.
  • You will not get used car value for your junk car. I mean that, if you are wondering that my car was in use but had some malfunctions in recent times then wreckers have no concern about that. They are not interested in your car being low on mileage or the interior being rough. They only want the metal of your car which is what their job is.

  • Some of you might have an issue with the prices as you might be evaluating that with the model or made whereas the wreckers will only be concerned about its weight. They will weigh it out and will give you the price according to that. No hidden charges, no unjustified add-on
