How Do I Get Rid of My Truck Bed?

Getting rid of your truck bed can be a daunting task. Whether you’re getting rid of an old, rusty pickup or just want to upgrade to a newer model, there are a few things you’ll need to do in order to properly dispose of your truck bed.

The first thing you’ll need to do is remove the bed from the truck. Depending on the model, this could involve removing screws or bolts that hold the bed in place, as well as disconnecting any wiring and fuel lines connected to the bed. Once that’s complete, you’ll want to make sure all of the parts are securely packed up and ready for transport.

Next, you’ll need to find a suitable place for disposal.

The best option is usually your local scrap metal dealer or junkyard. Here, they will be able to accept and recycle your truck bed for free, or even pay you for it depending on its condition and value. Be sure to check with them beforehand about any restrictions they may have regarding disposal. You may also want to research other nearby junkyards that may accept your truck bed if the one closest doesn’t.

Finally, if you’re unable to find someone who will take your truck bed off your hands, then it’s time to consider other disposal options such as donating it or selling it online. Many people are looking for used parts these days so there could be a potential buyer out there waiting for what you have!


Getting rid of your truck bed can be a difficult task but with some research and effort it can be done relatively easily. Removing it from the truck is the first step followed by finding an appropriate place for disposal such as a scrap metal dealer or junkyard. If those options don’t work out then consider selling or donating the bed online!
