At CarBrain, we buy cars for cash. If you want to sell your car fast as it is right now, we offer fair prices. We aren’t the only option, though, so check out these other people who buy cars.

Cash for Clunkers Near Me

Cash for Clunkers will pay between $1,000 and $1,500 for your car to take it off the road. The Cash for Clunkers program was initiated with the intention of removing vehicles that pollute the environment beyond what they should. To be eligible for the program, your car has to fail its smog test, have most of its parts still attached, and it has to run and drive.

Trying to find the Cash for Clunkers program you used in 2008? If you’re in California, you’ll find it pretty easily. Everywhere else in the country, you’re out of luck. The federal program no longer exists. Now it’s just a state-run program in California, so odds are that you can’t take advantage of the easy cash-in.

Who Buys Junk Cars Near Me

Junk yards and scrap yards buy junk cars in all shapes and sizes, makes and models. Junkyards are one of the fastest options for where to sell my car for cash. The good thing is that they don’t discriminate between different types of vehicles. The bad thing is also that they care what kind of vehicle it is.

Regardless of the vehicle you drive, junkyards buy junk cars based on their scrap metal value. It’s solely assessed on the car’s weight. A Cadillac with all the options or a Cavalier with none of the frills – they both get paid out per pound based on what the scale says.

Auto recyclers also buy junk cars because they sell junk car parts to recoup the cost, plus profit. Like junkyards, you’re not going to get much money for your vehicle, but at least recyclers take your make and model into consideration and pay better for cars that are in high demand.
