Frequently Asked Questions

Should I fix a car in bad condition?

If your car is in bad condition, you have to consider the cost of repairing it versus its value to decide whether to fix it or not.

If the cost of repairing the vehicle exceeds 50 percent or more of the vehicle’s value, fixing it is not a good idea. Instead, you should consider your options for getting rid of it.

Can I sell a car in bad condition?

Yes. If you have a car in bad condition, you have the option to sell it rather than try to repair it. You can bring it to a junkyard or salvage yard, or sell it privately to an individual.

When you sell it to a junkyard or salvage yard, you may only receive the scrap metal value of the vehicle. Additionally, you will have to contact the yards in your area to determine if they will pick up your vehicle for no additional charges or fees.

If you choose to sell privately, you must negotiate a time for potential buyers to come look at the vehicle. Additionally, you and the buyer will have to discuss who pays to tow the vehicle if it does not run.

Should I sell or part out my car in bad condition?

In some cases, parting out a car in bad condition may be a better choice than selling it. Theoretically, you can get more money for a car by parting it out.

However, this depends on numerous factors. You must be able to dismantle your vehicle. Additionally, it can take several months to sell all the parts. Finally, you must take into accounts that you may not be able to sell bad parts and may have to discard them instead.

In many cases, selling the car whole is easier and more profitable than trying to part it out.

Can I trade in a car in bad condition?

In some cases, you can trade in a car in bad condition. You must find a dealership willing to accept a less-than-perfect car in order to do so.

Many dealerships will accept damaged cars, but not necessarily totaled or non-running vehicles. You must reach out to dealerships in your area to find out if they will take your vehicle and what they will offer you for it.

Keep in mind that when you trade your car into a dealership, you must purchase a vehicle from their selection. In most cases, a damaged car’s trade-in value will be significantly lower than the prices of vehicles offered by the dealership.

How can I sell a car in bad condition online?

The easiest way to sell a car in bad condition is to go online. Services like CarBrain allow you to get quotes quickly so you can see your car’s value. Additionally, it is easier to determine whether a particular company services your area when you go online.
