Is It A Good Idea To Sell My Car For Parts?

Sell Your Car For Parts

If you have a late model car that has been in a car accident or has engine problems, you may be facing exorbitant repair costs. Many times, it simply doesn’t make sense to fix the issues in your vehicle. You might consider selling your car for parts, but before you do, consider what that actually means.

Dismantling your car requires a lot of effort and know-how. Unless you’re a trained mechanic with a specialized garage, parting out your vehicle might make your car problems worse, not better. You could end up damaging valuable parts as you disassemble them — that will hurt your wallet directly!

The reality is, there are only a few parts in your vehicle with any significant value: the engine, the transmission and the catalytic converter. Once you pull those parts out and sell them, the rest of your vehicle may be sitting your driveway indefinitely.

If you had other plans for your driveway besides using it as a junk car storage space for months, parting it out yourself isn’t the right choice for you.

Selling A Car vs. Parting It Out

You have a few options for selling your car parts, if that’s the route you want to go down. For instance, you can complete the process independently by dismantling your vehicle and selling the valuable parts inside, or you can sell your car as-is and get a fair market price for it right away.

If you know how to dismantle a car independently, you may be able to get more money for your vehicle by selling it part by part than a scrap yard would pay you. However, it may take more time. You could have parts laying around for months waiting to be sold.

Additionally, if you don’t know how to disassemble your vehicle, you might have some difficulty trying to part it out. Additionally, it can take several months to finish selling all the parts in your vehicle. In some cases, you may not be able to sell every part, leaving you with junk car parts in your driveway.

Finally, depending on where you live, you may not be able to leave a junk car in your parking space long enough to disassemble it and sell it part by part. In the end, you may be required to sell the entire vehicle. A partially disassembled vehicle will sell for less than a vehicle with all its parts.

Selling your car as a complete unit is faster and easier. You can get paid for the whole vehicle, save time on labor and advertising, and avoid accidentally damaging parts of your car by trying to disassemble it without the right experience.

Should I Repair My Car Before Selling It?

In most cases, trying to fix your broken car before selling it is a waste of time and money. Some minor and affordable repairs may increase the value of your car if you can complete them yourself, but if you need to bring the car to a mechanic, the cost of labor will typically wipe out any potential profits you would make.

If your car has serious problems, chances are they have permanently affected the vehicle’s value. For instance, if it was damaged in an accident, the accident will appear in the vehicle’s history. There may always be underlying damage you haven’t identified, too, which means most buyers will be reluctant to negotiate with you on the value of the car.

In other words, trying to repair your car before selling it will generally be a waste of time and money. Instead, you should try to sell it as-is for its current market value.

How To Sell Your Car For Parts

Nationwide Towing

If you want to sell your junk car fast rather than wait around to get rid of it part by part, consider selling your car online. This is the fastest way to get paid for your junk vehicle. Rather than spending time calling around multiple different car companies, you can get a quick quote online — from CarBrain!

Selling your car with CarBrain means you don’t have to worry about finding junkyards and scrap yards in your area that will tow for free. Our associate buyers will take care of the process — you don’t have to worry about getting hit with additional charges because you called a scrapyard 16 miles away instead of 15 miles away.

If you have a junk car waiting in your driveway, trying to sell it in person means you’re limited in who can buy or will buy your vehicle. By selling it online with CarBrain, you have the option to send your car to a national company that can move your vehicle to where it’s wanted.

How Much Can You Get Selling A Car For Parts?

Payment for your car

How much you can get for your car depends on its current condition and what kind of car it is. Certain vehicles’ parts are more valuable than others, but a mid-range vehicle with parts in good condition might get a better offer than a high-end car with damaged parts.

Prices on cars for parts can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. The best way to find out what your car is worth is to get an offer. Our smart price engine can help you generate an instant quote for your vehicle in just 90 seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Sell You Individual Parts Of My Car?

No, CarBrain does not buy individual car parts. We can only make an offer on a complete vehicle. Your best bet for selling individual parts of a car is to use sites like Craigslist, OfferUp or eBay to get offers for your individual auto parts.

My Car Is Missing Some Parts. Can You Still Buy It?

It depends. CarBrain can make an offer on vehicles missing parts, depending on what parts are missing. For instance, if your vehicle is missing a fuel line or a wheel, we can still make an offer on it for its fair market value.

However, we cannot make an offer on vehicles missing engines, transmissions or more than two wheels.

My Car Doesn’t Run. How Much Can I Get For It?

How much your car is worth depends on a variety of factors including its year, make, model, condition, mileage, location, accident history and more. It could be worth anywhere from $300 to more than $10,000 depending on the factors listed above. The best way to find out what your car is worth is to get an offer with CarBrain — it takes just 90 seconds.

Will You Buy My Car As-Is Or Do I Need To Fix It?

CarBrain can make an offer on your car in its current condition — there’s no need to fix it whatsoever! We specialize in buying cars with problems, and we can buy yours too.
