What Are My Best Car Junking Options?

car towed by tow truckThere's no shortage of ways to getting cash for your clunker. For instance, you can easily find someone on the internet to take it off your hands, or a college kid on a shoestring budget who needs some kind of transformation.

However, in many cases, finding someone to buy a scrap car for the price that you'd like to sell it for can be an issue. Many recyclers or yards will give you a quote for the scrap metal value of the vehicle - which is is cool, but it may be lower than what your junk car is actually worth.

There are many different reasons for why buyers might be interested in an older vehicle. Some of these reasons may be:

  • Recyclers are generally going to be people who purchase vehicles for the value of the weight of the vehicle in scrap metal. They're mostly interested in recycling their material, rather than buying the car for re-selling purposes.

  • Self-service Yards also have an interest buying these types of junk vehicles because they can make substantial profits by selling the cars for parts. These are yards where cars are displayed and you can pick whatever parts you are looking for & purchase them at the yard.

  • Private Buyers can range anywhere from hobbyists, to mechanics, to college students with less than $500 to spend. These are people who may have their own reasons buying your car, but still want to.

Each one of these groups of buyers have their own pros and cons. Some may offer some more convenience. Others may take a little bit of time but can give you more money. You also have the option to part out the vehicle and try to maximize its value.

However, you may also not be interested in parting out a vehicle over months of time and effort to squeeze an extra fifty bucks from the car. But what if there was a better way to get cash for your junk car?

Why Junking Your Car With CarBrain Works

Selling your junk car online is super easy and seamless with us. We focus on providing fair-market offers that are tailored to your vehicle, its conditions, and your local market.

Among the many factors we use to evaluate your car, our price engine also compares it to other vehicles in your area who are in similar conditions to make sure you are getting an accurate evaluation for the car.

Here's some of the indicators that we use to give you an offer:

  • Year, Make, and Model: The year, make, and model will help us identify what kind of car you have.

  • Odometer reading: This is the mileage of the vehicle.

  • Damage: If your vehicle has any damage of any kind on the body of the car.

  • Mechanical Condition: Is your car good for daily driving? Are there any other things we should know about its engine or transmission?.

  • Local Market Demand: In some areas of the country, your vehicle might be in higher demand. This can work in your favor as the prices might be higher (or lower, alternatively).

Additionally, all of our service partners are appropriately licensed to buy salvage cars, totaled cars and other cars in less-than-perfect condition. This means that when you sell your car to us, your vehicle is being properly handled and all of the paperwork taken care of as per the law.

Should I Trust My Local Car Junkers To Safely Dispose of My Old Car?

Businesses need a salvage dealer license in order to buy salvage cars and resell them or strip them for parts. Before selling a salvage car to a junkyard, make sure the business you’re working with has the appropriate license.

Unlicensed buyers may misrepresent cars they buy when they resell them or fail to appropriately transfer titles over, leaving you legally liable for cars you sell.

For instance, if your car ends up in the hands of a criminal, you may be held responsible for any criminal actions the vehicle is used for. The best way to avoid legal problems is to make sure you are working with a legitimate, licensed business.
