how to & where to get rid of my car in Brisbane

You have a vehicle that is in scrap condition sitting around on your property and you’re wondering what on earth your options are to dispose of it and get car removal service which can often be time consuming if you are not aware of the process.

This big white elephant is taking up space in your garage, on your driveway, on your front lawn, in your back yard, or outside your property. It sits there day by day, in the way, rusting away. You’re sick of looking at it. The neighbours probably aren’t loving the look either.

So how on earth do you get rid of such a big cumbersome item without it costing you time or money?

Best way to sell car in Brisbane

You have a few disposal options open to you:

You can do nothing – but beware!

The Public Land and Council Assets Local Law 2014 gives Brisbane City Council the authority to confiscate vehicles under several circumstances, including those where a vehicle is deemed to be abandoned, unattended or unregistered and parked on a road. If you don’t do something, the council probably will.

If your old car registration has expired and you have it parked on the street, it’s probably only a matter of time until the local council pick it up.

Problem solved!

Maybe, but it was your asset and if the council take it, you’ve missed out on getting paid whatever your vehicle’s worth.

A council-confiscated vehicle can be reclaimed if proof of ownership is provided, along with photographic identification and the payment of a release fee. But now it’s cost you and you still need to get rid of the car!

You can advertise it for spare parts

You could advertise; someone may want some of the parts from your old car. But advertising isn’t cheap and then you need to be available for someone to come and check out the parts. There’ll be lots of questions about whether the parts are reliable. You will need to negotiate a price. And then there’s the problem of what to do with the parts that the buyer didn’t want. You are still left with a disposal problem. There is also a solution by inquiring about car wrecking service provided by Swift cash for cars.

You can repair it

You could try to get the car back on the road again, but if that was feasible, you probably would have done so in the first place. You’ve probably replaced the vehicle and are now left with the problem of what to do with something that really belongs on the scrap heap.

You can sell it as is

The car is now unregistered, unroadworthy, unsightly and you can be forgiven for thinking that no one would possibly interested in it. But that’s not the case. Your old car, no matter how bad its state, has value in its recyclable parts.
