Re: Getting the most for scrap metal
$20/ton, i got a whopping $22 for a VW Passat shell, and $24 for a RAV4 with engine and trans.
But this place is easier to deal with. The other big corporation place there is a long line and lots of paperwork and hardhats and inspections, just to get another $20.
I have been sorely disappointed trying to sell parts lately, not a single part sold from the RAV4,
an Explorer, the Passat, the Jaguar, the Subaru. The salvage yards now advertise 'by owner' on CL
to avoid the $5 charge, this has diluted the value of CL for parts.
