Common Questions You May Have

How Do I Get Money For My End-Of-Life Kia Optima?

CarBrain lets you scrap your Optima instantly. We can make a quote in less than 2 minutes for your Optima with issues, no matter what's wrong with it.

Motor issues? That's fine. Body damage? No problem! Find out what your car is worth by using get an offer form.

After you get a quote, our customer service representatives will aid you in planning your FREE car removal. We'll remove the vehicle and pay you in two business days.

What Can I Get To Recycle My Optima?

You can still get money for a scrap Optima that's at the end of its useful life.

Many local yards can legally recycle your vehicle to melt down and reuse the components inside. The amount you can get for your vehicle by junking it depends on its dimensions and weight. Other factors include its current location and the present current market value of the metal in your vehicle, including steel, aluminum, platinum, and other metals and more.

The #1 choice to find out your car's scrap value is to receive an estimate with CarBrain.com.

What Do I Do If My Kia Optima's Title Has A Lien On It?

CarBrain will only purchase Optimas with liens on them if our offer is equal to or greater than the value of the lien.

Unfortunately, if your car has negative equity, we won't be purchasing it, as it wouldn't make sense for us to do so. If your vehicle was declared a total loss, you may be able to get a check from your insurance company, retain it, and then get a second check from CarBrain.com. This would allow you to maximize the value received from the sale of the vehicle.

How Do You Calculate A Quote For A Broken Kia Optima?

Offers from CarBrain include complimentary towing — which means bringing the Optima to us won't increase the offer. Submitting images and the vehicle identification number can improve the accuracy, however.

All CarBrain.com quotes are based on fluctuating market values. As a result, we cannot guarantee that your estimate will increase or decrease if you sell it later. We also can't guarantee that you'll get a significantly better offer if you try to repair the vehicle or replace parts before selling it to us.

Why Can't I Create An Offer For My Kia Optima?

If CarBrain wasn't able to give you an offer, rest assured that there are many of people out there who will be more than happy to purchase your broken car.

For one, you can try checking out online auction places. These would include websites such as Craigslist, OfferUp, or Facebook Marketplace. Alternatively, there are junkyards in your area that will be happy to take a look at your scrap Optima.

Charitable organizations and recyclers may also find good use for your vehicle.
