salvage worth

6 posts in this topic

anybody have any knowledge on vehicle salvage worth. took my 97 f150 4x4 to the mechanic to check on a interior engine noise, I am expecting the worst , truck does'nt owe me anything 220k with nothing major for problems drive train works fine, body fair to good I know scrap is way down but 4x4's used to have decent salvage value anyway. would just like a ballpark so I have some idea.

I would think you could get $400 for it.

I dumped a 1/2 ton truck about 6 months ago and got $550.00 for salvage. Bad motor. I believe scrap price may be down.

They had a scrap yard on the news one night that was buying steel left and right when it was up there, but they didn't resell it and now they figure they may never get their money back out of it.

look into the new gov. rebate coming out soon. 3500.00 or 4500.00 in rebate for that truck towards a new one. dealers are supose to scrape truck after. it has to have insurance on it during the last year. just wish it could go towards a newer used one.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
