Selling a backpacker car in Auckland

Posted On: August 18, 2017

If you are a backpacker, and you want to sell your car, you may be feeling a bit daunted as it is not an easy thing to do. There are so many hoops that one seemingly needs to jump through. You need to place an ad, you need to take photos, you need to put the work out to your friends and family, and the list just goes on and on.

The thing all backpackers need to know is that it doesn’t have to be this way. You can simply sell your car to a cash for cars company. Here are the steps that you need to take in order to do this.


First things first. You would be well advised to look up “car removal company” or “cash for cars company” along with your area into the search bar. Depending on where you live, there should be a nice small list in the search results. After you have completed this simple task, it is time to have a look at their actual websites.

Choose a company that is reputable

You will be wanting to contact a few different companies, but first before you do any contacting, have a look at their websites. You will be looking at a few different things. Do they offer free cash quotes? Are they fully licensed and accredited? Do they have customer feedback? If they do check it out. It could be an idea to talk to your friends and family to see if they have any words on the subject. A company with a great reputation will be less likely to give you the run around.

Get some cash quotes

The next step won’t come as a surprise to you. Contact a few different companies and ask them for free cash quotes. If they don’t do this, then run for the hills and call a different company. When you call any specific outfit, you will be asked for some details pertaining to the vehicle. How old is it? What condition is it in? How many Km’s are on the odometer? What make is it? What model?

All of those questions are asked so that an estimate can be made on how much your vehicle is worth. They will be salvaging the car for all re-usable materials and parts that they can sell later on. So you will need to answer these questions very honestly. So be sure to have a good look at your vehicle so that you can provide a good overview of what condition it is in etc.

Sell your car for cash

The Company that ticks all the boxes, including offering the most money for your old vehicle, will be the best one to sell it to. They will send around a person to pay you for the car and pay cold hard cash on the spot for it. If you are a backpacker then you will be pleased to know that there is a great way to sell your vehicle quickly and easily for the acquisition of quick cash. Even if you find your vehicle as junk, you can still get the decent cash for scrap cars. All you need to get the free quote and make the right decision.
