What Happens to your damaged vehicle when sold to us?

If you were curious about what happens to your wrecked, dead or scrap car/van/truck when you have sold it to Car Wreckers, keep reading. Car Wreckers buy damaged or even broken cars that are no longer going for parts. Once purchased from a seller, a damaged car is then towed away to the Car Wrecker wrecking yard. It is then queued up for dismantling and wrecking.

Auto Dismantlers Auckland

The parts from the vehicle once dismantled are then placed in stock. Where they are accessible to provide any customers who are looking out for certain auto parts. For different makes and models of cars. These parts are sold at a very reasonable price. Read more about our Used Car Parts Auckland.

Any part of the vehicle that is not worth salvaging is then shipped out to a metal scraper for disposal. Check out our scrap car removal for more details.


Cancelling your registration

Most vehicles are normally deregistered before they are sold to Car Wreckers. In case a vehicle is not de-registered and is going to be dismantled. It would be in the owner’s best interest to get this done before they have the vehicle picked by wreckers. You will also need to hand the numbers plates to an NZTA agent (Vehicle Testing Station- VTNZ or AA centre), and complete a form called “Application to Deregister a Motor Vehicle” (MR15). 


Authorities will always make an assumption. That a car on their database is yet driven and registration fees apply unless notified. Registration can be officially placed on “hold” when a car is in storage or under long-term repair. This means the owner only pays registration for the period the car is being used on the road.
