We’re sorry to hear about your car troubles but are here to help with your inquiry. Typically, the average car weighs between 1.5 to 2.5 tons. However, the exact weight can vary based on several factors:
- Make: Cars from different manufacturers will weigh differently, even if they are in the same class. For instance, a Honda Civic might not weigh the same as a Toyota Corolla.
- Year: Over time, as models are updated, the weight can change due to added features or improved technology. This includes changes in the engine, body material, and interior features.
- Trim: Higher trim levels with additional features and luxury elements tend to weigh more.
When selling your car for scrap, the price you’ll get largely depends on the current scrap metal prices, which include steel, copper, and aluminum. These prices vary based on location and time of year, so it’s wise to do a bit of research to find the best rate. Also, if your car has many functioning parts, consider selling it as a salvage vehicle. You might get a better offer from a salvage yard than a scrap yard for a car with reusable components.
Best of luck with your sale, and if you have any more questions or need further assistance, feel free to reach out.
