Your Car Won't Start, Now What?

It can be very stressful finding out that your car won't start, especially if your car is older and likely nearing the end of its usable life. 

Sometimes it may be a fairly easy-to-fix battery issue, while other times it could signify that it's time to get a new car. Cars 4 Cures will remove your car and donate it to charity on your behalf in Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, Brampton and other surrounding areas and has some suggestions for what you can do when your car won't start. If you are not located in the above mentioned cities, do not fret; Cars 4 Cures will service Winnipeg, Barrie and southwestern Ontario.

- Take it to a mechanic 

If your car won't start, then your first course of action will likely be to get help from a mechanic. For a newer car that's never given you much trouble before, you definitely want to see if the problem can be easily fixed, as your car will probably have plenty of years left if repaired. But, if your car it getting on in years and notorious for breaking down, the services of a mechanic could end up being very costly. You should also consider the fact that your car may break down and need repairs again soon after.

- Try DIY repairs

DIY repairs can be more affordable than hiring a mechanic, but you have to know what you're doing or else you could risk making the problem even worse. Even if you do have some mechanical experience and are fairly confident you could get the problem fixed, you may end up investing a lot more time and money than you bargained for. A pricey, but quality mechanic may sometimes be more affordable than DIY repairs gone wrong.

- Sell or scrap it

If your car is beyond repair, then you have the option to sell it for scrap in its entirety, or to take it apart yourself and sell its individual components for scrap. However, like DIY repairs, scrapping your own car can take a significant amount of time. Plus, you need to know what you are doing and which metals are even worth salvaging.
