Is there anything more depressing than having an old car that barely runs stalling in the middle of traffic? It is not worth the time and money to fix it and it may not be worth the trouble of selling it or trading it in. You need to get rid of this purposeless monstrosity and waste of valuable garage space.
Places That Buy Junk Cars
Cash Cars Buyers can pay $500 for junk cars depending on the type and condition of the vehicle. We will pay you in cash and tow your non-working car away for free. We know you have a choice when selling your old ride and we feel assured that once you research each of them, you will find that we are the most viable option.
Trade-In Your Junk Car
If you are going to purchase a new automobile, the salesperson will be authorized to give you a trade-in amount for your old car. They are likely to offer you far less than they should. Before you go into the dealership, you may want to visit our website to find out what you should get for the car.
In some cases, a dealership may give you what seems to be a good amount for your trade-in. If they do this, make sure to read your paperwork very carefully. They will often put the money that they gave you back on to the final price of your new car.
When you visit the dealership for the first time, do not tell them that you have a car to trade-in. Have the salesperson give you a final price for the new car in writing and then tell them about the trade-in. They are unlikely to give you as much as we will for your junk car.
File an Insurance Claim
If your car was totaled in an accident and you have insurance, the insurance may pay you for your car. Kentucky is a no-fault state when it comes to automobile insurance. This means that when a driver has a crash, their own insurance company is responsible for paying their accident-related bills even if they were the one at fault.
When you have an accident, you will file an insurance claim. If the damages to your car exceed 75% of the amount of money that the vehicle is worth, it will be considered totaled. Your insurance company must pay you whatever the car was worth seconds before the accident.
There are no set regulations for determining what a car is worth. It is up to the insurance company to determine the amount of money the car was worth when the crash occurred. The insurance company is unlikely to offer you a fair settlement.
If you do not take the amount of money the insurance company offers you, you will have to hire an attorney to negotiate with them on your behalf. Although a lawyer may be able to get you more money for your car, they will also keep a large portion of the settlement.
When you sell your car to us, we can tow it away for free and pay you in as little as 24 hours. Some insurance companies will not worry about towing away your totaled car and you may be able to sell it to us and get the insurance money.
Sell Your Car Online
There are many websites dedicated to used car sales. These sites will allow you to list your car for a monthly fee. If you use one of these sites, it may take months to sell your car.
When you use one of these websites, you will be competing with many other sellers. The only people who generally want junk cars are mechanics. An independent mechanic is likely not to want your whole car, but rather a few parts.
When you finally do get a call from a potential buyer, you will have to arrange for a time to show the vehicle. You may have to show the car many times before selling it and the buyer may try to talk you down in price.
Selling a car online can be dangerous. Criminals will often use online bulletin boards to find their next mark. If you do sell your car this way, have someone you trust with you or meet the potential buyer in a public place.
If You Don’t Have the Pink Slip
If you want to trade in, sell your car, or get insurance money for it, you will have to have the title. Cash Car Buyers, may not need the title. In most cases, no title is no problem as long as you have your driver’s license and a copy of your registration.
What You Can do with Your Garage
Once you get rid of a junk car, you will have extra space in your garage for a new car. If you don’t feel that you need to park your car in the garage, the space can be used for other things like a room for hobbies or exercise. You can also monetize your garage.
Create a Spare Bedroom
If you have frequent visitors or if you have a kid who has been clamoring for a room of their own, you may want to think about turning your garage into a spare room. A spare room can be used as a home office.
If anyone in the household has a hobby such as sculpting or paper mache making, the garage is can be a good alternative to practicing the craft in the main house. It is in of doors and it will not matter if you make a mess. It offers the privacy you will need to practice an instrument until you are good enough to play for others.
If your garage is big enough to add a bathroom, you may be able to turn it into a small apartment. Renting out a detached room or mother in law apartment can be very profitable. If you don’t want the hassle of a lease or full-time tenant, you can rent the space out through a service such as Airbnb. That way, you can make the room available when you want to and have it to yourself from time to time.
