Take Your Junk Car to the Philly Salvage Yard, Pt 3

After driving the same car for several months or years, we can easily grow attached. While it may be painful to say goodbye to your once perfectly maintained car, there are several reason taking it to your local Philly salvage yard could be the best thing for both of you. This is the final installment in a 3-part series discussing the benefits of selling your junk car.

Below are some more reasons why taking your junk car to a trusted Philly salvage yard, like the one at Orthodox Auto Company, could be one of the best decisions you make this year.

Safety: If your car hasn’t quite kicked the bucket yet but you’re still driving it, you may want to reconsider. It’s never a good idea to drive a car that’s not operating at optimum capacity. You may even be harming yourself and passengers if you’re driving a car that’s kicking out toxic fumes or leaking fluids.

Write-Off: If you aren’t ready to sell your car to the salvage yard, you could donate it to charity. In most cases, you can deduct what the charity sells your car for from your taxes. Always research your car’s worth and what the charity plans to do with it before committing your junk car.

More Room for Activities: A broken down car may be taking up the valuable room around your home. Get that dilapidated ride out of your garage and utilize that space to start working on projects you may have been putting off. You could also just replace your vehicle that’s been out of commission with a brand new one with the money you get from selling your car.

If you’re ready to part with your vehicle, contact the salvage professionals at the Philly salvage yard of Orthodox Auto Company today at (215) 866-4052, and we’ll be more than happy to help you get through the salvage car process.
