Considering the condition and model of your car, its worth might be from $50 to $12,000 to car wreckers. How much do wreckers pay for cars? It all depends on what percentage of your vehicle would be salvaged into parts and scrap metal. If you have an old 1500 kg car, most of the parts can’t be used then you might receive $150.

But let us be real for a moment here. Sometimes there are situations when a car is worth much less, let’s say $50 dollars. This might be because of the car age, the parts and the condition of the car are very low quality.

Which means: You can’t expect Any Auto Wreckers to pay $150 for your car if it is salvageable only into scrap metal. And that metal worth half the price.

How much do wreckers pay for cars?

Wreckers can buy cars for $150 to $12,000, and it is calculated by considering the current trends of the Scrap Metal Prices per Kg this year, Your car age and Condition. The process of Scrapping a car and what parts of the vehicle are usable and other relevant factors. This is usually the average Price to expect for scrapping vehicle in New Zealand

But don’t worry, if the car worth is higher upon inspection, you will get paid higher. But there are cases when a car is not worth even a $100 dollars.

Wrecked Cars Value or Price

Here’s a breakdown of how these factors play a role in determining your wrecked car’s value:

  • Location – Where you live plays a huge role in what you’re able to receive for a wrecked car. Your proximity to a salvage yard and the regional price of scrap tells the quote for your vehicle. The popularity of certain vehicles in an area may also affect how much money you are able to make.
  • Year/Make/Model – While there are still many older vehicles on the road today, the demand for parts is not always consistent. For example, hundreds of people still drive Toyota Corolla, but the demand for those parts is relatively low because most of the Corolla’s that are taken off the road are truly at the end of their life. Another thing to consider is how cars change from year to year, and as vehicles become more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly, more plastic may be integrated into the bodies, which decreases the metal weight.
  • Condition – This is pretty simple to understand, but it’s worth mentioning. If you are driving a pristine, clean, and smooth running wrecked car, you’re more likely to get more cash for it. If you’re really driving a rusty vehicle, then it’s going to be bought for its scrap value, rather than the value of its parts.
  • Current Price of Scrap – This is probably the most important factor in how much you receive for your wrecked/scrap car. If only because most wrecking companies are buying vehicles for the metal value, rather than the parts. If the price of scrap is down, you will not be able to receive a high payout for your vehicle

These factors are not the end-all for determining your wrecked vehicle’s value. With some vehicles, you can potentially get even more depending on the individual components. What we mean is that sometimes the components of a working vehicle can make you more cash than an equivalent scrap car that isn’t working.
