Whether the unwanted car is rotting from rust or damage from an accident, it is still possible to get a nice amount of cash. Using the services of an Unwanted Cars Removals in Perth can provide a variety of benefits. It is not necessary to cover the expense of using one company or to advertise to find a buyer. Plus, it is much quicker than the DIY approach of selling parts individually after carefully breaking down the vehicle, engine, and removing fluids. The first thing you need to do before your car is picked up is to ensure that there is plenty of space for the tow truck to get to your car. There could be other vehicles in the way that will need to be moved. Make sure that you ask your neighbours to move their vehicles if needed long before the removal truck is due to arrive. If your car is currently in an area where the tow truck will not be able to reach it then you will need to make arrangements to move it.
The steps to an environmentally unwanted car removal are as follows:
Dismantling the car:
The first thing the employees at a car removal company do to a car that has reached the limit of its lifespan is to dismantle it and resell the usable parts. Many parts could be in a good working condition and get used for reconditioning another car.
Draining the oils:
After the car is dismantled and the surviving parts are resold, fluids such as the remaining petrol, the oil, and the brake fluid must be drained completely before the rest of the car gets crushed and disposed of.
Removal of hazardous materials:
There are certain materials such as the mercury and the propellant from the airbag system, not to mention the batteries that require special handling when removed. The risk of contamination is great with this type of material, so it is important to follow the official hazardous waste management procedures.
Crushing the shell:
After all the steps of the above are completed, the shell of the car is finally crushed. The shell can also be melted down and recycled.
Return Number Plates to VIC Roads
Another thing that you may want to do is take your number plates off. By removing them, you will be required to send them off to Unwanted Cars Removals in Perth, who is the governing motor vehicle registration body. After returning them to VIC Roads, you may receive a refund. While you remove your Victorian number plates from your car, you should also make sure that you haven’t left anything in there. All personal belongings need to be removed and any extras that you may have installed in your car that you want to keep (i.e. the radio or other similar accessories). If you forget to take anything out of your car then the removal company cannot be held responsible for any possessions that get lost or damaged after the car has been taken away.
