Scrapping Your Junk Car

Old, broken down, and unwanted cars need to go somewhere. Make that somewhere our scrap yard! When you scrap a car, the overall condition doesn’t matter, but here are a few things you need to know when bringing a car to United Iron & Metal. Tasmania: Junked Out Old Car

  1. Do you have a title for your car? If you do, we can pay you a premium for it! If not, we can still accept it but we will pay a discounted rate due to the fact that the State requires us to find and notify the last known owner.
  2. Tires: remove tires when possible. If they are still on the vehicle, we will deduct for the weight of the tires.
  3. All fluids (including gasoline!) must be removed.
  4. Speaking of gasoline, we need to verify that there is no fuel in the tank. Cutting a whole in the gas tank or removing the tank entirely insures that we can easily confirm that the tank is empty.
  5. Remove that battery! We buy those too! Scrapping your vehicle can be daunting if you have never done it before.

Feel free to call us at 410- 384-4198 with your questions. We are happy to help you get your scrap car to one of our Baltimore Yards and help turn your scrap into cash!
