If you live in the Florence, Kentucky area and you have a damaged vehicle on your property, you probably know that there are a few ways to get cash for junk cars. You may be wondering which is the best way to go and what pitfalls to avoid.
Cash Cars Buyers can offer you as much as $500 for your junk car in Kentucky. Not only do we pay well, but we will tow your car away for free. Our whole process only takes about 24 hours to complete.
We acknowledge that you have other options. However, we feel sure that once you explore those options, you will end up selling your car to us.
Taking a Trade-In Allowance
If you are in the market for a new car, the dealership is likely to give you a trade-in allowance for your old vehicle. They are not likely to offer you much and it is a good idea to call us and get an quote from us before you accept the dealership’s offer. Dealerships rely on their customers to be too lazy to do any research and find out what their car is worth.
A dealership may also offer you what seems like a very good trade-in allowance when they hear you have a junk car. Be sure to read each itemized line of the final price they give you on your new vehicle carefully. They will often tag the money they gave you as a trade-in allowance back onto the final price of the new car.
When you go into the dealership, you should never tell them that you have a car to trade-in. You should get a final price in writing and then tell them about your old car. That way you will know the exact amount of money that they are offering you.
File an Insurance Claim
If your car was wrecked in an accident, you can file an insurance claim for the value of the car. Kentucky is a no-fault state, which means that if you are in an accident, your own insurance company is responsible for paying the related bills.
If your car is totaled in an accident, your insurance company should pay for it. They are supposed to pay you for the value of the car one second before the accident. Unfortunately, the insurance company determines the value of the car.
Insurance companies want to keep their money in-house and they are likely to offer you less than your car was actually worth. If you are not happy with the amount of money that they offer you, you will have to hire an attorney to represent you. If you have to sue the company, you may not get any money for years and you may not get any money at all.
An attorney will charge you a large percentage of the money you get from the accident. You also have to pay a deductible. In the long run, it may not be worth it to file a claim. We can make you an offer in minutes. We can pay you and tow it away within 24 hours.
Selling Your Car Online
If you type, “sell my junk car” into a search engine, many websites will come up. These websites will charge you a monthly fee to list your car. You will have a lot of competition if you list your car on one of these sites and it may take months to sell your car.
Once you get an interested buyer, you will have to show the car to them and that can be very time-consuming. A person looking for a junk car online is likely to be a mechanic. They may only be looking for certain parts and they may leave you with a parted out junk car on your property.
Selling a car online can also be dangerous. Many criminals have found their victims on online billboards. If you do show your car to someone you met on one of these sites, you may want to meet them in a public location or have someone with you when you show them the car.
What if I don’t have the Title
If you don’t have the title of your automobile, you will not be able to sell it trade it or get insurance money. You will have to go to the DMV to get a new one and that can be a time-consuming endeavor.
Cash Cars Buyers may not need a pink slip. In most cases, no title is no problem as long as you have your driver's license and a copy of your registration.
Once you do sell your car, you will have some extra money with which to enjoy the town of Florence, KY. There is much to see and do in this historic berg.
