Car Salvage – Get a Decent Price For Your Inoperable Car

Did you know that the car salvage industry is a huge and flourishing business in today's times? The industry offers a great outlet for people looking to sell their inoperable cars or purchase cheap reconditioned vehicles. In other cases they may sell the spare parts of the car as the actual car may not be worth it to repair.

A car salvage company is generally willing to purchase any brand and any model. It does not matter if you have a crash damaged car, bike or van you can call in on the professionals to purchase it off you. Your car need not be a total wreck in order for it to be sold to a car salvage company. You can even sell them a rain damaged car or one that is slightly damaged for a decent amount of money.

You may be wondering, why should I not look for potential buyers in my area when looking to sell my car rather than an auto salvage company? The answer is you should. It is quite likely that you may be able to find a car enthusiast or a needy person who would be willing to purchase your damaged vehicle but in some cases you may actually not be able to find a single buyer willing to pay for your beat up ride . This is due to the cost of repairing the vehicle may be well over the actual worth of your car.

In the process of trying to sell your car to potential buyers in your area you will have wasted time and put in a lot of effort and even some money in trying to reach out to your target market. All to no avail. On the other hand when you contact a car salvage company you do not have to incur any costs, nor wait and yet put in any money whatever.

All you have to do is login on the internet and browse for a car salvage company that works near you. On the company website you will find a form which you need to fill giving complete details of your vehicle in its current condition. Soon enough you will have one of the staff members from the company contacting you in order to fix a price. Different car salvage companies will offer you different prices. The fact that they operate online gives you a chance to get a quote for your car from various companies and go for the one that gives you the best price.

With the price decided upon you can determine a pick up day with the car salvage company. Since such companies operate seven days a week you can fix a day that is most convenient for you. The car salvage company will send over its employees to tow away your vehicle for free and hand you over with the determined amount right there and then on the spot. …

Costco Maui Gas Station Hours

The station is open 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Yes, it’s a big deal when Costco opens up a gas station on Maui!

Not only is it the biggest gas station on the island, it is Costco’s biggest in the nation with 20 pumps. The really great news is the new station appears to be driving gas prices down as well, with gas stations in Wailuku suddenly offering gas around $4.20 a gallon.

Costco has wanted to add a gas station to its Kahului location for at least the past five years and now it has happened! The gas station was officially opened with regular, unleaded gas priced at $3.99 a gallon – approximately thirty cents cheaper than the island wide average on Maui.

Maui’s island wide average price for regular gas was $4.31 the day of the opening, which was down from an average of $4.54 a week prior to the Costco opening. The state average was $4.21 – the highest in the nation, followed by Alaska with an average price of $4.05.

“This will change the face of gas prices on the island”, predicted Jeff Cole, Costco’s Vice President for US gasoline operations.

The first person to pump gas at the station’s opening was a 93-year-old male Costco member who was selected by the company.

Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa was the second to pump gas at the station’s opening. Mayor Alan Arakawa issued a statement saying, “It’s about time. I think Maui residents will finally see some lower gas prices, thanks to Costco.”

The entrance to the station is on the Paia side of Costco’s Haleakala Highway entrance. The station is open 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

I drive from upcontry Kula to Lahaina 6 days a week. I am very happy Costco has brought their gas station to Maui. I went fill up my tank last week and antisipated a lone wait in line. Everything was very well managed and I was in and out in about 5 min.

Just about everyone vacationing on the island has to go by Costco which makes it very convenient when returning their rental cars before heading to the airport.

Maui timeshare owners staying at Westin Ka anapali Ocean Resort Villas, Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club, Ka anapali Beach Club or any of the Kahana timeshares and Kihei time shares will enjoy the savings in filling up their tanks on a rental car return.…
