There are companies whose main job is to scout for junk cars, pick them up and dispose them off. Sounds funny, doesn’t it! Why would a company pay you for a useless car? They have multiple uses for your car. For you, it may be junk, but for them, it is a mine of spare parts and scrap metal. Once they buy the junk car from you, they will remove the parts they consider valuable and sell the same. There is a huge market for used car parts as many people prefer used ones. They are comparatively cheaper than newer ones. Once all the useable parts are removed, the remaining car is run through a metal shredder and sold off as scrap metal. The entire procedure is done in an environment-friendly manner.
Why opt for selling your junk car?
- For you, it is a piece of scrap metal, occupying space in your backyard. However, till the time it is with you, you have to spend something to maintain it otherwise it will completely fall apart. It doesn’t make any sense to spend maintenance money on something you are not sure you will use. Disposing it off can help you save a few dollars and also free up that space in your backyard.
- Who does not like some extra cash? And if you get that cash (a few hundred dollars) by selling your junk car that you are not using, isn’t it the icing on the cake?
- It does not make sense to sell the car yourself. It is too much trouble and hassle. You will be wasting time and energy in haggling with potential buyers. Easier to hire someone to do it for you.
How do you sell your junk car?
You have decided you want to get rid of your junk car. Now how do you go about the same? Below are a few fairly simple steps you could follow.
- Look for a vendor online. Make sure to look for one who will tow your car for you. You could either call them and speak to their executive or fill up their form online.
- Mostly, these companies will get back to you with an offer after reviewing your details. If you are content with the offer, move to the next step.
- Speak to the company and make arrangements for the towing of your car. We cannot emphasize more on this step as this can be huge trouble later if it is to be taken up by you.
- Check the payment arrangement of the company. Some companies offer you payment at the time they tow away your vehicle while some companies give it to you after they tow away and inspect your vehicle.
