Where Can I Arrange A Junk Car Pickup?

Drawing of broken car on tow carIf you’re looking to arrange a junk car pickup in your area, you have a few options available, depending on your preferred outcome.

You can:

  • Donate your car to a junk car charity.

  • Sell your car to a junkyard.

  • Sell your car to CarBrain!

The best option depends on what businesses and nonprofits operate in your area (unless you choose CarBrain — we operate in every part of the contiguous United States!).

Take some time to research your options to make sure you’re comfortable with your selection. Even if you consider your car junk, you can still get some final value out of it when you get rid of it.

How To Donate A Junk Car To Charity

A photo of a toy car tied with a ribbonIf you choose to donate your car to a junk car charity, you will typically receive an offer for a free tow and pickup. Walk away from any nonprofits that ask you to pay for the cost of towing — you should never be charged for making a donation.

When researching places you can donate your junk car to, make sure to confirm that the nonprofit is legitimate. There are many scams that operate under the “donate your junk car” pitch.

Start by researching the charity on a website like CharityNavigator. Such sites can tell you how much the charity puts towards actual charitable use as opposed to expenses like salaries, advertisements and other overhead costs.

Additionally, if a charity offers you something in return for your “donation,” be suspicious. Gaudy gifts imply that the nonprofit is making poor spending decisions.

Finally, make sure that the charity asks you to sign the title over. If it wants you to deliver the vehicle title without signing it, that could create future legal problems for you.

How To Get Cash For A Junk Car With Same Day Pickup

If you want to make some cash for your junk car, you can find junkyards in your area that can arrange a same day pickup. You can also fill out the form with CarBrain and skip the negotiation and hassle.

Begin by finding local junk yards that pick up cars in your area. You can call them up and ask what their terms are for picking up your car.

Make sure to ask if free pickup is included in the offer. If a junkyard wants you to pay for the cost of towing, hang up and call someone else. Don’t pay for towing your junk car to the yard.

Once you know the junkyard will pick up your car for free, ask what they will offer you for your vehicle. Some junkyards only pay by weight, which means you may not get as much for your vehicle.

It may take several phone calls to get a deal you like to arrange a junk car pick up for cash. Once you do have it in place, you can make the sale and figure out when you can pick up payment.
