Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Recycle My Old Car For Cash?

If you have an old or junk car that you don’t know what to do with, you can recycle it for cash. Virtually any old or damaged car can be recycled for its parts and scrap metal value.

Recycling a car helps keep it out of landfills, where it will take years to disintegrate. It also minimizes the need to produce new steel for other vehicles, which generates a lot of greenhouse gases. By recycling your car, you can help both your wallet and the planet.

Where Can I Recycle My Car?

There are numerous options for where you can recycle your car. The best option for you depends on how quickly you want to get paid and how much you hope to get for your car.

You can recycle your car by selling it to the following places:

  • A junkyard or scrapyard
  • A dealership that accepts damaged trade-ins
  • An online car buyer specializing in junk cars

Junkyards and scrap yards specialize in taking your junk cars, breaking them down and recycling or melting them for reuse. This is an easy method to get paid for your damaged car.

If you want to sell your car to a junkyard, it’s a good idea to get quotes from multiple locations. Some yards pay you by your vehicle’s weight, while others offer a flat fee for vehicles of certain classes. Additionally, ask about towing charges - some yards may charge you for towing if you’re not located nearby.

If you want to recycle your car, a junkyard is not your only choice. You can also trade your car into a dealership, which will then ship off your car to a yard independently. This is a good choice if you want to get a new car as fast as possible and avoid dealing with your damaged car.

Keep in mind that you may not get the best price possible for your damaged car using this method. Dealerships do not specialize in recycling junk cars, and not all will accept your damaged vehicle.

Finally, you can sell your junk car to some online car buyers. Many can offer quick quotes on damaged and junk vehicles, and generally include free towing in their offers. This method can help you sell your car fast and for a fair price.

How Do I Recycle My Junk Car?

Begin by preparing your car for sale. That means removing any personal belongings from your car and double-checking what features do and don’t work.

For instance, does the car turn on? Do the headlights and turn signals work? Can you rev the engine? This is valuable information when seeking quotes.

Once your car is cleaned out and you have tested it, start getting quotes from local junkyards and dealerships, as well as online buyers. This can help give you an idea of what place will offer you the most money for your car.

After getting quotes, it’s time to start comparing your options and deciding where you want to sell your car. Are you looking for convenience, the best price possible or a combination of the two? Will you have to pay for towing? How long will it take to complete the sale?

CarBrain offers the best of both worlds — a fair price for your car and a quick sale — in an easy-to-use, online platform. If you want to recycle your car fast, it’s time to learn more.
