Why Selling Your Junk Truck Can Save You Money

When you own a truck that’s broken 90% of the time and is simply not worthy to be on the road anymore, having it taken, or better yet, selling it for cash is probably the smartest thing that you can do. Because even if you keep it tucked away in some garage or warehouse, the truth of the matter is, it’s still causing you stress; and worse, it’s costing you some money.

Yes, you heard us right. No matter how seldom you use your old trucks, you’re still letting some considerable amount of money get out of your pockets – and more often without you noticing it.

Good thing there are reliable truck wreckers Melbourne who are willing to remove old vehicles and even pay a reasonable amount of cash for old trucks, regardless of their current state. Exactly why Advance Truck Wreckers is here. Our team of expert Melbourne wreckers, dismantlers, and recyclers ought to share with you some of the top reasons why selling your junk truck can actually save you some cash.


Save money on hefty fuel costs.

No matter how hard you try to deny it, your old junk truck is a nasty gas guzzler. Because it’s a fact – the older a car is and the more problems it has, the more fuel it consumes. It’s easy. By letting go of that gas-guzzling clunker sooner, the more cash you’ll save on fuel expenses.

Save money on insurance costs.

It’s not very common, but there are owners who still religiously pay for insurance even if their trucks are already at the end of their useful lives. And as crazy as it seems, sometimes, even they do know that older trucks are more costly to insure, they still get on with paying its regular insurance fees on the notion that they’ll still be able to keep it for a few more years. Well, let us be frank about it – that’s just plain silly (for the lack of better term). Instead of you paying more and more dollars on insuring that broken rig, let yourself earn (while saving) some money by selling it.

Save on repairs.

How many times did you let your trusty mechanic fix your old truck but it still ended up broken down on the middle of the road? Owners of junk trucks such as yourself know that this is ‘normal’. Well, the truth of the matter is, it shouldn’t be. We know that when you have your beat-up truck repaired by a professional, you always seem to get your hopes up that it would run smoothly for the next few days, weeks, or months. However, you too caught up on making it work; and so you fail to acknowledge the fact that it is already beyond repairing. The moment you realize that you’re wasting your hard-earned money on fixing something that really can’t be fixed, that’s when you’ll start to save yourself some cash.

Save on accidental costs.

If you let your business go through usual operations by using an old and most-of-the-time-broken-down truck, you’re making your business suffer from additional incidental costs. You’ll have to insure your driver and crew (if any). Plus, you’ll pay for hospitalization and other unnecessary costs just in case it gets broken down (again) in the middle of the road or worse, get caught in a road accident.

Save on hauling and towing expenses.

Many years ago, owners of junk and scrap trucks go far and beyond just to find ways to get rid of those nasty old clunkers and take it to the scrap yard.
