Making Money off of Your Old Auto Parts

Pages: 1 2

It’s possible that you may never have thought of making money off of the old auto parts that you have stored in your house or your garage, but there are plenty of ways to make money off of them. If you don’t want to save them in case of emergencies or in case you need spare auto parts for one reason or another, then there are valuable ways to get them off of your hand that don’t require too much work. In fact, many people actually decide to use their old cars as ways to make some money, and here are some methods that will help you make money off of those auto parts in your garage that are only gathering dust from day to day.

Sell to Junk Yards

Even though this method only requires you to take them to your local junkyard, you may be pleasantly surprised at what junkyards will pay for your old auto parts . Unless they absolutely cannot be used anymore, junkyards will usually pay top dollar to you for something that they can always use or resell for a higher price. Of course, if you only have one type of auto part that you have to sell then you may only get $5 for the whole deal, but anything that you receive from the junk yard is better than nothing at all. The plus side to selling your auto parts to the junk yard is that not only will you receive compensation for them, but they’ll also be out of your house and garage collecting dust.

Use Your Old Automobiles

If you have an automobile that is no longer running for some reason or another, one way you can make money off of it is by selling off the auto parts within the car in order to make money. A lot of people call this method the "parting out" method in order to get people to buy the auto parts on the inside of the car. Furthermore, everything from the alternator to the tires can be sold to individuals if you are parting your vehicle out, but selling the parts to individuals who need them makes a whole lot more sense then taking your car to the junk yard and having it impounded because it doesn’t run anymore.

One thing that individuals must be careful about, though, is that they don’t sell any of the bad parts of the car. If the automobile isn’t running because of the starter or alternator, then those are the auto parts that will definitely have to be scratched off the list to sell to potential buyers.

Profit from Online Ventures

A third way you can make money from your old auto parts that you have sitting around is to sell them on the internet. Millions of people look at the internet for great deals on auto parts and you can be a part of the competition. A few suggestions of places to sell your auto parts

When Your Auto Parts Fail You

Pages: 1 2

There are some very crucial auto parts that sit in the engine of your car and there are a whole host of problems that could go wrong with them. Fortunately, it is up to you in order to decide which auto parts need to be repaired, but most likely you will need to take the advice of a mechanic after they have given it a once-over. Nevertheless, though, there are some major choices that one needs to make in the lifetime of the car that they own. Some choices are easy, while other choices like putting it to sleep (or sending it to a junk yard) are much more difficult. On the other hand, making decisions, like buying new auto parts for your car, could be the best thing since sliced bread and your car definitely will be grateful for it. All in all, though, here are some things that one may want to consider if some of their auto parts , or their whole car for that matter, has failed them.

Consider Borrowing

One of the ways that you could overcome this dilemma that you’re facing is by borrowing an automobile for the time that you need it. Of course, if you have no trusted friends or family members living near you then it may not be possible to borrow a car. But if you do have someone nearby that would help out, a suggestion would be to borrow their car until you wait for the new auto parts to come in for yourself or the mechanic to fix your ride. Even though it is rarely ever fun borrowing an automobile that isn’t yours, it just may be necessary for a short period of time.

Consider Renting

Another option that many people have when waiting on new auto parts to be put in their automobiles is to rent a car from a car dealership or a car rental business. There are usually plenty of these businesses in virtually every town or large city across America and they may have reasonable rates for just a week or two. On the other hand, the car insurance that you may have may allow for a car rental to take place at the expense of the insurance company. There are car insurance companies that do allow for this, and it may be worthwhile to check into while waiting for the auto parts to fix your automobile.

Do-It-Yourself Jobs

Another option that many people take advantage of is to fix the cars that they have themselves. Instead of relying car repair shops to fix their car, many people take it upon themselves to buy the new auto parts that are failing them. Considering that many auto repair shops may take a week or two to get automobiles fixed because they are so backed up with work, it may not even be worth it to leave your car
