Scrap a Car in Basildon

There’s nothing more frustrating than having an old car stuck on your driveway or in your garage for months on end because you don’t know how to get rid of it or having an old car on its last legs that didn’t make it through its last MOT. The problems of trying to sell an older car are increasing as more and more vehicles are flooding the used car market.

If you’re desperate to sell your old car and you’re struggling too, then you need to look at the reasons why. Here are a few reasons why you may be finding it hard to find a buyer for your car and why you’ll be better off by using a car scrapping Basildon.

With growing concerns for the environment and a constant battle to reduce carbon emissions, older cars are no longer environmentally viable. If your car is over 16 years old, it won’t be fitted with a catalytic convertor, making it a poor choice for buyers who are concerned about their carbon footprint.

The older the vehicle, the more mechanical problems it is going to have, no matter how well it’s been looked after. Even if your car is currently running well and not causing you any issue, astute buyers are aware that looming problems are most likely imminent.

In today’s high-tech world, many motorists are reliant on more up-to-date features such as Bluetooth, voice commands, stop and start functions, cruise control and steering wheel controls. Newer models also have more safety features such as side and rear airbags, ABS brakes and rear parking sensors.

General wear and tear is an issue for people looking to buy your car. If rust is a problem or the bodywork has dents or scratches, you’ll find yourself being beaten down on price or buyers insisting that issues are dealt with before the sale goes through. No matter how low your asking price, prospective buyers will always be searching for a bargain. If haggling is not your forte, selling an older car can be a real headache when it comes to agreeing on a price.
