With the increasing number of car removalists and car wreckers Melbourne today, it is but pertinent that you arm yourself with all the necessary information you need before you dive into the actual removal and wrecking of your beloved ride.

There are lots of factors you have to consider first, you know. So as a leading car removal Melbourne company, our team of experts here in Advance Car Wreckersought to give you our own list of all the things you have to know or do before seeking the help of professional car wreckers.

Before everything else, you need to know:

1. If there are vintage car collectors or car enthusiasts who are looking for a car like yours.

No matter how old or used up your car is, you cannot think that there is absolutely no one who will want it. Regardless of how unroadworthy or irredeemable it is in your eyes, the possibility of someone needing or liking it is still there. So if you want to get rid of it, earn some money on the side, and at the same time help someone in need, then be open to the possibility of selling it first to car lovers in your area.

2. Which parts or components of your car are still in really good condition.

You must also take into account the valuable parts of your car. You know, even if it is no longer in working condition, there would still be parts of it that can be used and even sold. Now if you are up for selling those individually, you may have to dismantle your car yourself or ask your trusted mechanic to help you with that. Just in case you have decided not to sell those good parts, you may also inform the car removal and recycling company that you removed such parts.

3. The going rate for your car.

Yes, even if your car is old, damaged, and not working, it still has some value to it. You may go online to determine the current value of your worked up car, but the best way to go about it is to ask several car removal companies. All you have to do is provide them with your car's brand, make, year model, etc.

4. If you still have the important documents.

Know if you can still find your car's title or registration papers. Not that it will add to your car's price tag. It's just that, if you still have its original title and/or registration documents, you may have the option to sell it to a dealership or private buyer. If not, then never fret because you could still sell it at a reasonable price through the help of car wreckers. Which brings us to the next point...

5. Which car removal companies in Melbourne you can trust.

This process could be a bit challenging because you can't simply figure out the reliable from the shady ones just by researching on the internet. All of them will most probably say that they're the best, right? So be prepared to do your own investigation. Ask the people you trust - mates, relatives, and even mechanics you have worked with before. Seek out the ones who are licensed and certified. Pick the ones who have proven to be in the industry for many years. And go with the one who has a long list of loyal customers.
