Sell my Car in RochesterRochester was America’s first boomtown, a thriving industrial hub that was once rated as America’s “most livable city” and the third-best place to raise a family in the United States. But those ice-cold winters on the edge of Lake Ontario can put a serious strain on your aging car—and no one wants to be stranded out in the cold if and when their old junk car finally breaks down.

If you try to sell your junk car to a local scrap yard, you might be shocked by how little they offer you. That’s because they usually just don’t know how to appraise damaged cars, so they offer scrap metal prices. Even if they do make a decent offer, you’re likely to be stuck paying the towing costs out of your own pocket. But with CarBrain, you’ll get an instant, no-nonsense offer on the fair market value of your vehicle in less than 90 seconds with our online pricing tool.
