Cars are our best friends when they are in perfect condition. They make our life easier in ways we don’t even realize until they are not there anymore. Even a simple task can seem to be impossible if there is no car by your side to run the errands. Even though cars are extremely helpful, they too have a lifespan, like all the other machineries. Once a car reaches the end of its lifespan, things start going downhill.

Various issues and problems come up once a car becomes quite old. More than an asset, it starts becoming a liability. With all the problems, you will not realize when the mechanic’s bills shoot up in no time. You will realize that your car is spending more time at your mechanic’s garage, rather than yours. In this case, the best thing to do would be to give it away to car wreckers in lower Hutt area, Streamline Auto Buyers specialize in buying Toyota cars in Wellington. They buy Toyota cars in any condition, and of any model. They even offer the best price possible for your junk Toyota car.

Various Car Parts You Can Remove Before Selling Your Car

A junk car is more of a burden, and what can be better than giving it away for cash?! You will actually receive cash by giving away something that is no longer of any use to you. However, you would want to make sure that you are getting the best possible deal out of this. But you can always make some extra cash out of Toyota car parts. Before parting with your car, you can remove a few valuable items, and sell them separately in the market.

Here are a few parts you can remove:

1. Batteries

Car batteries are extremely valuable, and you can make extra cash easily by removing them, and selling them separately. There are, however, two ways in which you can make money out of car batteries. You can take the car battery to any junkyard for recycling—you can make easily around twenty dollars out of this. Otherwise, you can refurbish your old car battery with the help of distilled water, and Epsom salt. If you are successful in doing so, your battery might work just fine for another five years, or so. Needless to say that a properly functioning battery will fetch you more money than a dead one.

2. Cooling System

If you live in a place where the temperature goes pretty high in summer, then a car without a cooling system is as good as hell. Thus, the market for a used cooling system is quite flourishing in such places. So, for making good cash, all you have to do is to remove the cooling system successfully from the old car. You can even wait for the summer months to arrive to sell the cooling system to make the best deal out of it.

3. Airbags

If you were unaware of the fact that airbags can be removed from old cars, then it is high time to know these tricks! Airbags play a very important role, as they help in saving people’s lives in case of an accident. However, if your car’s airbags have never been deployed, then you can sell it for a good price. First hand airbags can cost as much as a thousand dollars. This causes people (on a budget) to gravitate towards secondhand airbags.

4. Rims and Tyres

If you have paid for a tyre, then you must know how expensive they can be! So if your car has some tyres in good condition, then why give it away? You could easily remove it, and make good cash out of it. Also, you can sell the rims for hundreds of dollars.

These are a few parts you can remove before selling your junk car. You can also remove bumpers, fenders, catalytic converters, GPS systems, doors, and windows for making extra cash in the market. It all depends on what condition those parts are in, and whether you can remove them without any damage!
