Car buyers in California

Owning a car in California is much more than a luxury. In a state with so much diversity and opportunities, a car is a must. This brings a world of competition to the market of car buyers.

You have junk yards, large and small dealers, and a huge private party market throughout the state. These buyers have a common goal: to win more and offer less. And in a state known for aggressive traffic conditions and sporadic earthquakes, it can be a dangerous place to drive. With public transportation and too many drivers on the streets, the odds of getting into an accident is inherent.

When you're looking to sell your damaged car, you want to make sure you are working with a reputable car buyer to handle and purchase your damaged vehicle. We purchase various cars with damage in all categories like Collision Damage, Mechanical issues, Theft, Vandalism, storms and floods, non-running and running vehicles.

Unlike most car buyers in the business, CarBrain seeks to help you sell your car fast and get the most cash for your car. We do not go back and forth in the so-called ‘negotiation games’ because our offers are guaranteed. That means when we’ve agreed on an offer, it's not going to change when we arrive to tow your car.

How to get the best price for my car?

Best Price For My Car

What you're probably thinking right about now is, “How can I get the most money for my car”? To start, most cars are not a precious gem. The longer you hold on them, the more money you're going to lose when you sell. The best time to sell is now and luckily, here at CarBrain, our process is quick and easy. And get this! For most cars, you will receive an offer in just 90 seconds.

After your car has been damaged - whether it was mechanical or collision - there's a few things you want to make sure of to get the best cash offer for your car.

  • Don't take any original parts off of your car. Keeping your car fully intact will always help you get the best offer possible. Even if the part is damaged, a car buyer always wants to see a complete vehicle.

  • Make sure you have the keys to your car. A car with no key is like a kayak without a paddle when you're exploring the California waters. Always make sure to have at least one key with your vehicle, whether it starts or not.

  • Make sure you have all the required documents. When a buyer makes an offer you want to be ready and accept. Missing documents could cause a delay in the process and the offer could change if delayed long enough. In the state of California, you need to have a title in your name and make sure that you leave the tags on the car because it's registered to it by the state.

Don't spend hours on the phone contacting shops searching for repairs. Most shops will only give you an estimate if the car is present, which can cost hundreds of dollars in towing and precious time out of your day. Also, you will never truly know the final repair cost of a vehicle until you've started the repairs and everything has been disassembled. By then, it might be too late to turn back.

The smart way to sell your car is Carbrain. Don't wait around for some shop and don't invest your money on a damaged car because you’re never going to get that back. We make the car-selling experience fast and easy.With just a few clicks, you can have an offer in just 90 seconds! Submit your car now - just click here and leave the rest to us!

  • Never pay to tow your car. Any reputable buyer should provide you with free towing

  • Never sign over your title before you get paid

  • Do not accept any offer that wasn’t the one you agreed on. Many buyers will try this sales tactic and they will lower your offer and expect you to accept that new offer since you’ve already invested so much time and need the car gone

  • Never give your car away for free! Even if its junk or scrapped it has some value left to it
