Cash for Scrap Cars in Kitchener and Waterloo

 In Auto Recycling, Used Auto Parts

Did you know that there is a Cash for Scrap Cars program in Kitchener and Waterloo, or that prices for scrap metal are at historic highs? This means that now is a great time to trade in your old vehicle for cash!

At Logel’s Auto Parts in Kitchener, we take your scrap cars, junk cars, post-accident cars, and other non-working or low-market-value cars and turn them into immediate cash. The program puts cash in your pocket in exchange for taking your old or unwanted car off your hands!

In addition, recycling your ride is a responsible environmental decision. Not only does it prevent a flood of dangerous toxins from being released into the ground and water, it also keeps your car out of the landfill. By reducing the need for new parts to be manufactured, you’ll be helping to preserve scarce natural resources and cutting down on pollution.

Give us a call for an immediate quote and we’ll set up a time to bring your car in. When you arrive with your car, you’ll get the exact amount that we’ve promised.

What Is The Cash for Scrap Cars Program?

Cash for Scrap Cars, also known as ‘Cash for Clunkers’ or ‘Recycle your Ride’, is an eco-friendly auto recycling program that keeps cars out of our landfills — and instead recycles their scrap metal or used parts to be used in the manufacturing process. Here’s how this very easy process works:

Step 1: Call Logel’s

Give us a call at the shop and let us know you’re interested in our Cash for Scrap Cars program in Kitchener and Waterloo.

Step 2: Request A Quote

On that same phone call, we’ll give you a no-muss, no-fuss quote for your car. This is a haggle-free process as we simply multiply the weight of your vehicle (from the book) with the current price of scrap metal, and voilà. This price is determined by simple math — which means you get a fair and honest price every time.

Step 3: Haul In The Car

Next, bring us your unwanted car. We’ll fill out the paperwork for you, process the car, and put the cash in your hand. We can also come and pick up your car if it’s not safe to drive — but there is an additional charge for this service.

Step 4: Spend Your Money 

The only step left is to plan how you’re going to spend your money. IDEA: We work with a charity that would be more than happy to receive the cash from your scrap car as a donation!

Give us a call! Our Cash for Scrap Cars program makes the process easy.

Frequently Asked Questions About Scrap Cars

What Should I Do with My Scrap Car?

Old cars can be a nuisance to have around — especially if they don’t run anymore or cost more in insurance than they’re worth. If you’ve got a scrap car or several cars that are sitting around and you’ve been scratching your head over what to do with them, then you’ve come to the right place.

At Logel’s Auto Parts, we are your best source for auto recycling and selling used car parts and scrap cars in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph. We can help you recycle your ride and get it off your property.

When you’re recycling your ride, there are two options:

  1. Sell Your Used Car Parts Individually

If your car is relatively new and is a reasonably popular model, then there may be some value for individual parts. You can tell if you have a ‘reasonably popular’ model if you commonly see your model of car sharing the road with you. Less popular cars can also have valuable parts beneath the hood, but they will typically need to be a specific model or collector’s car.

Unfortunately, selling your car for parts is a manually-intensive and time-consuming process. It requires you to strip each individual part out of your car, clean it thoroughly, and then find a buyer — whether it be an auto shop or online through Craigslist, Kijiji, or eBay. Most people don’t have the mechanical knowledge or time to do it themselves.

  1. Sell Your Whole Cars for Scrap

If your car is in rough condition and you suspect that you wouldn’t be able to sell its parts, then you should probably sell the entire vehicle for scrap. At Logel’s, we will give you an exact quote for how much your car is worth. We calculate its worth based on the weight of the metal in the vehicle. If you give us a call, our team will be able to provide you with the exact amount that you’ll get for your car.

If you’re in the Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, or Cambridge area, then we are your go-to source for selling your scrap car. Our decades of experience means a smooth transaction from start-to-finish. We’ll even do the paperwork for you. All it takes to sell your car for scrap with us is a phone call and a short chat.

How Much Money Can I Make From My Scrap Car?

There are a number of factors to consider when assigning a value to your scrap car. If you’re looking for us to provide a hard number, it will be fastest for you to give us a call. Our team will be able to give you a quote based on your car model.

Most cars will fall into two categories:

Total Scrap Cars

If your car is over 20 years old, no longer runs, has no Blue Book value, or would cost more to repair than it is worth, it will likely be turned into scrap, and the steel and other materials will be recycled.

These types of cars are generally assigned a value based on their scale weight and the current price of materials. Our team is able to provide price over-the-phone based on our database of vehicle curb weights.

Scrap For Parts

If your car still has parts that are worth money, then it may be valuable to sell the parts individually. This would likely earn you more money than weighing your car and getting the per-pound value. To sell your used car parts, you can do it yourself, piece by piece, using Craigslist, Kijiji, or eBay. Alternatively, you can work with a company like Logel’s.

This decision generally comes down to time constraints. If you have the time and desire to list each part individually, wait for each one to sell, and then pack them up and ship them out, go for it. Depending on the state of the parts, it may or may not be worth trying to sell the parts alone.

If you’re in doubt about whether to sell your car for scrap or for parts, bring it to Logel’s. We’re born-and-raised car guys. We don’t mess around or beat around the bush — we’ll tell you which one is your best option.
