Do you have a non-working car that is just sitting on your property and taking up space? You are not alone. Whether they were totaled in an accident or just died of old age, many Americans have junk cars they don’t know what to do with.
Cash Cars Buyers will not only pay you good money for your junk car, but we will tow it away for free. We pay $500 for junk cars depending on the type and condition of the vehicle. We are primarily interested in cars that were manufactured after the year 2000, but it is always worth it to contact us for a quote.
Getting rid of a junk car can open up a world of possibilities. There are many things you can do with an empty garage and some of those things are profitable.
Things You Can do with Your Garage
When you get rid of your junk car, you will have free space in your garage. You can always just park your new car there, or you can turn it into an extra room. An extra room can be used for hobbies, exercise, or even starting your own business.
Creating a Studio
Have you always wanted to start a band, but had nowhere to rehearse? Would you like to try your hand at painting, but are afraid you will make a mess? The garage is a good place to create in private.
No one will hear that song you are working on or see the picture you are painting until you are ready to share it. You won’t have to worry about getting paint on the floor and with a little soundproofing, you won’t have to worry about disturbing your neighbors.
Make an Extra Bedroom
Most people could use an extra bedroom. It is the perfect place to put guests or house that adult child who isn’t quite ready to leave the nest yet. It can also function as a study or home office where you can work quietly while still being close enough to take care of any emergencies.
Renting out a room is one way to make some extra money. You can add a bathroom and rent out the garage as an efficiency apartment. If you don’t want to deal with a lease, you can simply rent out space to tourists through a home-sharing website.
Some people will pay good money to simply rent out a garage for storage. They may need a place for their car or simply an extra room to store boxes. You can use some of that money to enjoy the historic city of Georgetown, Ky.
Once home to the Sawnee Native American tribe, this town had many names before finally taking its moniker from George Washington. In the 1800s, it had a primarily agricultural economy. The citizens farmed tobacco, hemp, and livestock including thoroughbred racehorses. Today Toyota has a manufacturing plant in town where many of the city’s residents are employed.
There is a lot to see and do in and around Georgetown. Most attractions are reasonably priced.

Places That Buy Junk Cars
When you decide to get rid of your totaled car, you will have several options for selling it. We at Cash Cars Buyers know that once you research those options, you will see that we can give you the best price and the most hassle-free experience.
Sell Your Car Online
When you Google, “sell my car online” many websites will come up. These websites will charge you a monthly fee to list your car online. You will have a lot of competition if you sell your car this way and you may have to have your ad up for several months before you even get one phone call.
Once you do get an interested buyer, you will have to make arrangements to show them the car. You may have to do this several times before actually selling the vehicle. Most people who are in the market for junk cars are mechanics and they may only be interested in a part or two rather than the whole machine.
Selling your car online can be dangerous. Thieves, human traffickers, and even murderers have found victims online using electronic billboards.
File an Insurance Claim
Kentucky is a no-fault state when it comes to auto insurance. This means that when a person is in a car accident, their own insurance company is responsible for paying their accident-related bills no matter who is responsible for the crash. Insurance companies do not like this rule as they have to pay out every time one of their clients has an accident.
When you have an accident, you will file a claim. If the damages to your car exceed 75% of the amount of money that it is worth, the vehicle will be considered totaled. If the car is totaled, your insurance company must pay you whatever the car was worth seconds before the collision.
Unfortunately, neither the state or federal government has regulations for determining how much any particular car is worth. It is up to the insurance company to decide the value of the vehicle. The insurance company wants to keep its money in-house and will not offer you the money you deserve.
You can either take the money the insurance company offers you, or you can hire an attorney to negotiate on your behalf. Although a lawyer may be able to get you more money for your car, they will also keep a large percentage of that money.
When you sell your car to us, you can have your money the next day. Some insurance companies will not bother to tow away your junk car and you may be able to sell it to us anyway.
Trade-In Your Car
If you are going to buy a new car, the dealership will be authorized to give you a trade-in allowance for your old vehicle. Normally, they will offer you far less than they should. Before you go into the dealership, you should contact us to find out what your car is really worth.
In some cases, a dealership may give you what seems to be a terribly fair price for your junk car. If they do this, you should read your paperwork very carefully. Make sure they have not put the money that they gave you right back on to the final price of your vehicle.
When you go into the dealership, do not tell them that you have a car to trade-in. Get the salesperson to give you a final price in writing and then tell them about the trade-in. They are unlikely to be able to give you as much as Cash Cars Buyers will.
Sell Your Car to Us
Selling your car to us is fast and easy. Simply fill out our online form and wait for us to call you with an offer.
Our form asks for your name, email address, and phone number. It also asks for the year, make, model, and VIN number of your car. We are primarily interested in cars manufactured after the year 2000.
Once we get your form, we will call you back and make you an offer. If you accept the offer, we will make an appointment to come to get your car. Our employee will arrive right on time, perform a brief inspection, pay you in cash, and tow the car away.
If You Do Not Have the Pink Slip
You will not be able to sell your car on your own, trade it, or get insurance money without the title. Replacing a title cost money and can take a long time.
Cash Cars Buyers may not need a title. In most cases, no title is no problem as long as you have your driver’s license and a copy of your registration.
