Sell my Car in New YorkNew York City is one of the busiest, most exciting cities in the world, but it’s also one of the most crowded. That means miles and miles of stop-and-go traffic that can turn your unreliable car situation into a complete nightmare. No one wants to deal with a midtown breakdown in rush hour traffic, so if you can’t trust your car to make it across the George Washington Bridge, you might want to get rid of it.

New York’s junk car buyers will happily take your car off your hands—but they rarely offer more than scrap metal value (currently at historic lows). And trying to find a private buyer for your less-than-perfect car can take weeks or even months. So why not use CarBrain’s online pricing tool to get an instant, no-obligation quote for your car? It takes just 90 seconds to find out what your car is really worth, and if you like our offer, we’ll come out to pick up your car for FREE and put the payment in your hand within 24-48 hours.
