Retiring your current vehicle to move onto another one can be a process that comes with a lot of different emotions. If you were in an accident and your car was totaled, you may be sad about the unexpected loss of a car you liked or stressed about the costs of getting a new car. If you’ve driven your car until it wouldn’t drive anymore, you may have bittersweet feelings of excitement about upgrading even though you’ll miss your old car.

No matter your situation, you should never have to feel stress about figuring out what to do with your current vehicle, regardless of its condition.

How To Sell Your Unwanted Car

One of the biggest concerns drivers have when upgrading their vehicle is how to get rid of the old one. In most instances, switching cars just involves a trade in with your local dealership or selling your car privately.

However, for cars that have been damaged or that are a little worse for wear due to age, trading in or selling privately may not be the best financial decision. The trade in value of cars in the best condition tends to be lower than market value, so you can only imagine how much less you’re getting when your car can’t be resold by the dealership.

While selling your car privately allows you to set your own price and do your own negotiating for your car’s market value, you’re likely to find the process costlier than you might expect. For example, if your car is still in working order but needs minor cosmetic repairs to sell at its best price, you’ll be stuck with those fees up front.

Additionally, you’ll need to do the legwork of making and managing your listing, negotiating with buyers, and scheduling test drives. It will also be up to you to negotiate who pays the fees for title transfer and towing. Finding a buyer and navigating this process may take weeks even in ideal circumstances.

The last option you have to pursue is to find a local scrap yard to sell your car to. Recycling your car with a reputable junkyard in your area is a fantastic option, and the most environmentally responsible one you can make if your vehicle is no longer in working order.

However, if you’re looking for quotes yourself, be mindful of potential scams from disreputable scrap car buyers. Some unsavory business practices include “no-value” quotes, failure to transfer your title, and inspection fees.
