What is a Junk Car?

junk car is old and worn out, extremely damaged, or one whose cost of repair exceeds the car’s value.

Steps to Follow When Selling Junk Cars

Here are some of the steps you can take to get the most out of your junk car.

1.    Find a Local Junkyard

Google at least three different yards and compare quotes. They will request the vehicle details such as:

  • Car model, make, and year of manufacturing
  • Details of damage
  • Does the car have a title?

A common tactic used by junkyards is offering free towing. They offer you free towing and a low price for your car. When most people do the math of towing the vehicle, they accept the offer. Be careful and do the math to see what option makes economic sense.

2.    Check License

Only sell to licensed yards, so ensure they have a permit by asking on the phone or visiting.

3.    Check Online Customer reviews

Check to see what their clients are saying about their services. Watch out for negative experiences and note them down.
