The method to get your vehicle evacuated highly depends on the type of vehicle you own. If you own a Ford that is eligible to be driven on the road and has a roadworthy certificate, the most common method is to take the vehicle to a mechanic and get their advice. They can easily check the internal machinery of the vehicle and provide you with an estimated value. Or you can even check your vehicle’s prices on car selling websites to get an estimate.
But if you own a vehicle that is not in optimum condition, that’s where the problem arises. In these cases, you need to take a longer route. Because these Ford vehicles are either purchased by junkyards or unwanted car buyers, they have a completely different evaluation process. If your car is not roadworthy, you need to calculate its value using the formula below:
Value of your scrap car = weight of cars in tons x price of scrap metal per ton
The weight of the car can be known by referring to the car’s owner’s manual or can be found by inserting the VIN of the car on online sites dedicated for this purpose. You can also know the scrap metal price after referring to scrap metal sites with prices for various metals, including steel, copper, aluminum, etc.
But it is to be noted the margin of error in this method is high as most cars have a combination of metals in them, But still, it can provide you with a rough estimation that can be used to set an asking price.
