When you think of scrap cars, you may envision a broken down, rusty old vehicle that’s probably not worth anything. But that’s where you’re wrong. While your scrap car may not bring you a lot of money when sold whole, selling it for parts can bring in massive profits.
Here is a list of car parts that you can salvage and sell, if you’re looking to make big bucks from your old automobile:
Car doors have numerous parts such as sensors, buttons, window controls and other small parts which can fetch a lot of money. Selling them separately is sure to bring in good revenue.
2) Navigation system
GPS systems are a necessity these days and there are hundreds of takers for a used navigation system. If your junk car has an in-built navigation system, make sure you salvage it.
3) Catalytic converters
Catalytic converters are exhaust emission control devices that reduce the toxicity of the fumes generated by the car. The best thing about them is that they are made of precious and sometimes rare metals such as rhodium, platinum and palladium, resulting in skyrocketing resale values.
4) Air bags
Air bags are some of the most expensive car accessories available. If you’re planning to deregister your car and your air bags are still not deployed, it’s a good decision to salvage them. There are multiple buyers who are willing to invest in second-hand air bags.
5) Music systems
Take a look at any scrap car in Singapore and you’ll notice that the music systems are seldom thrown away or destroyed. If you’re wondering why, the answer is the resale value. Music systems and radios are expensive accessories, which usually have a long working life. While your car may be beyond saving, chances are your car’s music system is still in near-perfect condition.
6) Wheels, rims and tires
If your car wheels are made of aluminum, you may have just hit the jackpot. Aluminum wheels and rims are great revenue generators and you could make a lot of money by selling these parts. Your tires, if still not worn-out due to use, can be sold for a decent price.
7) Air conditioners
Your car’s air conditioners can bring you a fair amount of money. With a bit of sprucing, your used air conditioners will be as good as new. Just like many other car parts, there is a large market out there for second-hand car air conditioners.
