We all get attached to our cars. After months or years of driving time with the same vehicle, you can grow accustomed to even the worst parts of an aging car. Keeping a car past its prime, however, can present considerable problems down the road. This is part 2 in a 3-part series about putting your car to rest at your local Philly salvage yard when it has finally run its course.
No matter what you plan on doing with your soon-to-be junk car, whether donating it to a worthy cause or dropping it off at Orthodox Auto Company’s Philly salvage yard, these reasons to dispose of your vehicle should give you some motivation to get started.
Avoid Fines: A dilapidated car rusting in your front yard or driveway isn’t just bad for the environment – it could also do considerable damage to your wallet. Neighbors may not find your broken-down car to be an acceptable lawn ornament and might call on local code enforcement to issue expensive fines.
Fund a New Car: You could even fund your next set of wheels with the money you make from selling your junk car to a local salvage yard. Let’s face it: the car (even if it’s your favorite possession) is doing nothing for you by just sitting in the garage.
No Longer a Project: You may have been attempting to turn back the clock and restore your car to its original splendor. If this process is costing you significant funds, time, and headaches, why not scrap the car and start with a brand new one? It’s a lot easier to keep a new car in mint condition than to restore a ruined vehicle to its original state.
