The Summer Vacation Cash Scramble: 3 Awesome Ways To Get The Extra Cash You Need For A Good Time

Summer is here, and that means it is time to start planning for a vacation. Do you know how you are going to finance your vacation this summer? There are many things that you can do to get the extra cash you need for a weekend getaway, such as scrapping that junk car, recycle metal, sell on online auctions or get a couple of side projects that pay. Here are a few awesome ways to get the extra cash you need to finance your vacation:

1. Scrap the Junk Car Before You Sell It for Cash

Before you scrap your car, you want to look for items of value that can be sold elsewhere. Remove things like aftermarket parts and components that are made of aluminum or other precious metals. You can even remove the catalytic converter, but do not try to get the platinum out of it because recycling centers will not take them if they have been tampered with. Save all the parts you have removed for later and contact a junk car buying service to haul off what is left of the car for extra cash.

2. Auctioning Anything and Everything Online for Cash

Were you wondering where you would be able to get rid of all those extra car parts when you sold your car for scrap? An online auction is a good place to start by listing some of the most valuable parts you removed. Before you list them, clean them up and take photos. Make sure you list parts as "as-is condition", before posting them. Once you have listed parts, find other things like valuables or odd and rare objects to build a store. List the items with the lowest possible prices to ensure they sell quickly.

3. Scrap and Precious Metal Recovery for Cash and A Side Hobby

Metal scrap can be very valuable too, which not only are junk cars worth money. Other materials from construction scrap, old appliances, and aluminum cans will also bring you some cash. Recovering gold and precious metals from old electronics is another way you can get extra cash for your vacation. Older electronics will have the most metal for resource recovery projects. 

These are a few of the best ways to get the cash you need to finance a vacation this year. Contact a company like City Auto Wreckers for more information and assistance on scrapping your unused car.
