If you have a junk car that's sitting on your property, it's likely not just gathering dust, but rust as well! If you don't have any plans to fix up the car, why not sell it to someone who can use it for parts? You may be wondering, "who buys damaged cars, anyway?"

The good news is that there are actually plenty of places that buy cars for parts regardless of their condition. By selling to a reputable company who buys cars for cash, you can get that rusty vehicle off your property and enjoy some extra cash in your pocket.

Who Buys Cars for Scrap?

With so many options on companies who buy your car for parts, you may be wondering which is best for you.

Salvage Yards

There are plenty of salvage yards and junkyards who buy cars, including non running cars. They will usually strip the cars and sell off individual parts. While it's easy enough to find a junkyard that buys old cars in your area, you will likely be expected to tow your vehicle to them at your own expense—and you probably won't experience the best customer service in the process.

Auto Recyclers

If you want to be more environmentally conscious about where your car and its parts end up, then you might instead want to consider selling to an auto recycler. These can be harder to come by, but auto recyclers do offer cash for cars and will exercise environmentally friendly processes in scrapping your vehicle.

Local Dealers

A local dealership who buys unwanted cars can also be an option for you; most will buy cars regardless of their condition, but dealerships are known to be less-than-trustworthy—so who knows if you'll get a fair price.

Private Buyers

Finding a private buyer who buys old cars is also a possibility, but this will require you putting in a fair amount of time and effort. You'll also need to negotiate with the seller on who will handle the pick-up or towing of your vehicle if it's not in operating condition.

Generally, the best and easiest option for those looking to get cash for cars is to sell directly to a car-buying service like CarBrain. This way, you can receive a quick and guaranteed offer; you can also have the car off your hands (and money in your pocket!) in as little as 24 hours.
