Safety First: Selling, Purchasing, or Recycling Car Parts Safely

19 Feb

Alternative methods to buying or selling junk cars parts have proven to be both financially and emotionally beneficial. None the less, there are several things to consider when engaging in cash for cars parts transactions. Below are a few precautions that both retailers and potential customers should keep in mind to increase a sense of security.

Ad Responses

Let’s face it – the world is not how it used to be. With the recent Craigslist scares, many people are hesitant to purchase items via online ads even if they are from genuinely nice people. Whether you are a buyer or seller take the extra step to gain pertinent information about the person you are meeting with prior to the transaction. Rather than conducting business at your home, consider meeting at an office or safe, public location if the junk car part is transportable. If not, notify a close friend or relative so that they can either come with you or at least know of your whereabouts.

Recycling Pick Ups

Sketchy tow truck companies have been often found driving around neighborhoods scoping out unwanted or abandoned vehicles. Although it may seem more convenient to go ahead and conduct a transaction with them, be careful. It is highly suggested that you go with a company that you have researched and conversed with previously rather than making rash decisions on the spot. A professional recycling center will ask for the car title, status of the vehicle, and provide a receipt. This provides peace of mind and ensures that you are abiding by the law.

When scheduling a pick up for your junk cars unwanted vehicle, it is very important that all details are obtained regarding your appointment to avoid any surprises. Knowing who exactly is coming to retrieve the vehicle and at what time lowers the risk of becoming a victim of robbery or any other malicious crime.

Junkyard Visits

Most professional salvage lots provide their customers with a “self-serve” option that allows them to look for desired junk car parts on their own. When taking this route, be sure to dress appropriately to avoid injury. Closed toed shoes are highly recommended as well as full-legged pants to avoid possible scrapes and injuries from surrounding scrap metal and parts. It is also advised to leave children at home or in the office of the facility for the same reason.
