What to Do If You Think A Car Has Been Abandoned?

An abandoned vehicle can be a nuisance. Many property owners find that having an abandoned vehicle in front of their driveway or near their property adversely affects their property’s value. So, what can you do if you think a car has been abandoned? Here’s a detailed guide from Sell Cars for Cash on what the right thing to do is in such scenarios. 

Cash For Abandoned Car

What Is Termed as An Abandoned Vehicle? 

According to VicRoads, a vehicle is considered abandoned if it: 

  • Is unregistered
  • Has not been moved in more than 2 months
  • Has been deemed to be not roadworthy by Victoria Police or VicRoads

If you have a car that’s no longer roadworthy or is considered scrap, do not abandon the vehicle! Many times, vehicle owners are tempted to dump the vehicle in an empty plot or deserted road, but doing this can mean you actually end up losing out on valuable cash! How do you ask? Because there’s a smarter way to get rid of your abandoned vehicle and that is to contact Sell Cars for Cash. We are a Used car buyer that buys all conditions of vehicles. So, even if your car is ancient, heavily damaged or in scrap condition, we will pay you cash for it. And the best part? You don’t have to spend a cent to Sell Your Car to us!
