You and your truck have been through a lot together. Whether it’s moved its last couch after years on the road and it’s just time for an upgrade or if it didn’t make it through a  recent accident, you deserve a good price when it’s finally time to sell. Depending on where you live or the condition of your truck, a quick sale at a good price may seem difficult.

Fortunately, selling your truck is easier than you may think! Especially now, when used trucks are in higher demand and selling for higher prices than ever. You just need to know where to look.

Options for Selling Your Truck

Most likely you’re familiar with the two most popular methods of moving from your current vehicle into a new one — trading in at a dealership or finding a private buyer. While these methods are perfectly viable in most instances, they’re not the way to get the best deal.

For starters, it’s important to understand how trading in at a dealership works from the dealership’s perspective. Most dealerships have a small lot space allocated for used vehicles, but there’s far fewer spaces than there are used vehicles they receive on trade in. The best of the best go up for sale, but most used cars that go to the dealership are then sold at auction.


Our expert evaluators can help you get an accurate estimate for your car's value, FAST!

For this reason, you’ll never get the fair market value of your car trading in directly at the dealership.

Finding a private buyer yourself allows you more control over the sale price of your car, but also puts you in the position of navigating the sale (and its associated costs) on your own. Before creating your listing, you may wish to get the car detailed and make minor repairs. Then you’ll have to create and maintain a listing, schedule test drives, and negotiate prices as well as the cost of towing and title transfer.

By the time your truck sells, you may have spent more time and money than you anticipated.  

If your truck is in rough shape, these options may not even be viable, leaving you junkyards and salvage buyers as your best purchaser options. Junkyards do an invaluable service for the environment, recycling upwards of 12 million cars each year.

That said, not all junkyards have your best interest in mind. Some facilities have been known to pull scams on unsuspecting sellers, costing you rather than putting money in your pocket.

To find the best price and safest buyer for your car, your best bet is to go online! Selling your truck online opens up your buyer pool, and depending on the service you use, mitigates scam risks and sale costs for you. Selling online also allows you to streamline the sale process, never leaving  your home and eliminating the condition of your truck as a factor!

What are Junk Trucks Worth?

Trucks are utility vehicles, and it may be hard to conceive of their value when they can no longer run or haul. Think about it this way though, your truck is somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 pounds of metal and machinery. Even if it can’t drive anymore, most of its parts and materials are still perfectly usable.

For trucks that have been totaled or are simply at the end of their road, they’ll continue their journey through a junkyard that can put new life into those old parts.

Getting an accurate valuation of your truck can be difficult when it’s damaged, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a fair price for it.
