Every year, there are more than thousands of car accidents in New Zealand. Isn’t that crazy? Some of those motor vehicles have just slight panel body damage and can be fixed. Others are a total loss – totally wrecked and not safe to drive anymore. And sometimes, you’re the one stuck with a car you can’t drive.
What do you do with a wrecked motor vehicle? Since you can’t drive it and it’s probably not worth fixing up, you’re probably asking yourself, “How and where can I sell my motor wrecked cars?”
You have questions about how to sell a wrecked car. But don’t worry, we have the answers for you.

How Much is My Wrecked Car Worth?
Before you try to sell the vehicle you inappropriately used for bumper cars, you’ve got to decide how much you should ask for it. Don’t get too ahead of yourself, because you’re apparently going to be dissatisfied with the numbers you discover.
You see, most people want cars they can really drive, not cars that have been bashed up, wrecked, smashed, and may not ever drive on the street again. Unsurprisingly, it drives down the fair asking price.
How to Sell a Wrecked Car
With a wrecked car value now in mind, the next step is to figure out how to sell a wrecked car. There are a few ways to get rid of your wrecked or scrap car, and it’s up to you to determine which one is best in your circumstances.
Who Buys Wrecked Cars
Have you asked yourself, “Who buys wrecked cars near me?” Finding local buyers is a good place to start. It’s no help to find a place to sell a wrecked car if you have to tow it across the country to make a few dollars.
Here are a few methods to sell your wrecked car, and they should be available to almost everyone.
Someone looking for a cheap car might be interested in buying your broken vehicle. If it has front end damage or back end damage, there’s a chance that it can be fixed and put back on the road. Private buyers looking to fix up a car to make their daily driver might net you a few extra dollars too.
However, you need to advertise your car for sale, be available for tire-kickers, and deal with buyers who want to negotiate hard. Is it worth the time and aggravation for a few extra bucks?
Scrap Metal Yard
An easy way to wash your hands of a smashed-up car is to sell it to a scrap metal yard. There’s nothing else you need to do with it – no repairs, no advertising, and it’s fast. But you’re not going to get very much for your car because they’re going to pay you based on its weight alone, not its make or model, mileage, or even its condition.
Parting a Wrecked Car
You could try parting a wrecked car on your own, and it could be profitable if your car still runs. But you’re still stuck with a wrecked car in your yard, and it can take months to sell enough parts for it to be worthwhile. You probably don’t need a hazard like that parked in your driveway, do you?
Trade-In to Dealership
Some dealerships might consider taking your car on trade, but they probably won’t buy it from you outright. And to be honest, a dealership doesn’t want your wrecked car for anything at all – not even parts. They want to make their money selling you another car, and may not even pay you the value of a wrecked car but rather take it off your hands for nothing.
