Question by : How do i find old non-running junk cars for free or for very little money?
I recently bought a tow dolly and i want to start salvaging junk cars but how do i aquire them? I’ve tried placing ads on craigslist but that isn’t working, i even placed an ad in my local paper for $ 48 for 1 week and no calls. Can anyone offer me some suggestions or advice, anything you can think of?

Depending on how your ad is worded many people tend to think of an offer to haul away their cars for free or little money as being a scam – the best way to start is by looking around for cars that are advertised for little to nothing and ask about local vehicles that appear to be just sitting and contact the owners – as your buisness grows – word will get around – also have a professional name for your services. You can also contact your local radio station for help in offering a free service to the community to salvage unwanted vehicles. Often times they will mention services like these for little to no cost in their community bulletin.

Don’t wait to get started for people to contact you – start by actively looking for vehicles – and don’t get discouraged, all endeavors take a little while to start rolling.

They dont recycle it in a literal sense. what they do is send it to a junk yard for those fortunate people looking for that car in a junk yard to find, then pay for it.

thats how its recycled, thats how the money is made from it.

(most parts on a car cannot be recycled)
