When you plan to sell your car to a junk or scrap yard, you should check to make sure your car has certain parts. The operator may ask if these parts are still intact on your junk vehicle so it would make for the quickest phone call to know about these parts before you call. If you don’t have these parts you will be offered significantly less money for your junk car. If you are not one to play around under the hood and use your car more as a radio with 4 wheels, there isn’t much reason to check for these parts as they will all be there except for special circumstances.
