There is nothing more unsightly than having a junk car on your property. If you have a car that does not run or is so damaged or old that all you do is put money into it, you have probably considered selling the car, selling its parts, or using it for a trade-in.

The History of Huntington West Virginia
Incorporated in 1871, the city of Huntington sits on the banks of the Ohio River and serves as the second-busiest inland port in the nation. It is thought of as one of the most beautiful cities in the Appellation Mountains.
The community was one of the first that was structured around the railroad. It has gone through many incarnations over the years and it has known feast and famine.
In addition to serving as a center of industry, it is also known for its live theater. The Keith Albee Theater was once one of the best-known vaudeville showplaces in the country. It is still a major tourist attraction and a great place to take in a show. You will see everything from concerts to live theater at this wonderful place.
When Mike and Henriella Perry moved to the Huntington area in 1973, the couple discovered hand hewed logs behind the walls of their new farmhouse.
They learned more about log cabins and soon began building cabins and furnishing them with genuine Appellation furniture.
Today you can visit the Heritage Farm Museum and Villiage which contains 25,000 feet of authentic Appellation memorabilia. It was named a National Geographic Traveler Prime Destination and it is a must-see when visiting Huntington, West Virginia.
If you have an adventurous spirit, you may want to visit WV Skydivers. The Mountain State never looks so beautiful as it does when you plummet out of an airplane that is 11,000 feet in the sky.
Patrons are strapped to an expert jumping guide for safety. Once you jump, you will drift down past the Appellation Mountains and the Ohio River.
The Museum of Radio Technology offers visitors the chance to see the way radio and television have evolved over the years. Admission is whatever you can afford to pay and the place is located in beautiful Ritter Park in Huntington.
Who Buys Junk Cars?
If you have a junk car, you will have several options for getting rid of it. You should make sure to do your research before deciding which option is right for you.
Take an Insurance Companies Offer
If your car was totaled in an accident that was not your fault, the liable driver’s insurance should pay for it. A car is considered totaled if it does not run or would not be safe to operate. A car is also considered totaled if the amount of the repairs would exceed the value of the car or if it violates auto safety laws.
An insurance company must assess the value of what your old car was worth the second before the accident. If your ride was old, you may not get very much money. They do not have a set means of deciding how much an automobile is worth. The insurance company is likely to offer you too little.
Be sure to check the Kelly Blue Book value of your car, before you accept their offer. If it is far below what that value is, you may need to get an attorney.
It takes a long time to get an insurance company to pay and when they do, you may think the money was just not worth the effort. When you sell your car to Cash Cars Buyers, you will get an offer immediately. We can pick up your car and pay you at the time of your choice.
Use the Car as a Trade-In
If you are in the market for a new car, or even a car that is new to you, the dealership is likely to offer you a certain amount of money for your old vehicle. Be sure to read all the paperwork they give you carefully before you sign on the dotted line.
Sometimes a dealership will offer you less than your car is worth because they count on customers to be too lazy to weigh their other options. Be sure to check the KBB value before going to the dealership. That way you will know just how much they are lowballing you, so you can make an informed decision about their offer.
Another thing a car dealership might do is to offer you what seems like a very fair price. Read your paperwork carefully before buying the car. They are likely to tack some of the money that they gave you for your trade-in back onto the total price of the new vehicle.
At Cash Cars Buyers we can give you as much as $500 for a junk car depending on the type and condition of the vehicle. We will make you an offer before we ever come to your house, so we won’t waste a minute of your time.
Sell The Car Yourself
You can always choose to unload your non-working vehicle yourself. You can put up signs on community bulletin boards or take out an ad in a shopper. Many people nowadays will use the internet to sell an unwanted automobile. You can either use a car website or a classified ad site such as Craigslist.
If you put up signs, you only have a slim chance that someone who sees the sign will be in the market for your type of vehicle. You may not get any calls or you may get calls from people who are not really serious about buying a car. Someone could also take down your sign to put up their own.
If you use a car website, they are likely to charge you and you will have to compete against all the other car sellers on the site. You may want to consider the likelihood that your car will be seen by a buyer who is looking for the exact make model and year of the car you were selling.
If you use Craigslist, you are likely to have to show your car to more than a few prospective buyers. This is not only time consuming, but dangerous. Many a criminal has found their mark through the popular classified website. Remember those prospective buyers would know where you live and know the make, model, and license plate number of your car.
If you know something about car engines, you could try selling the individual parts of the vehicle. This is very time consuming and will normally only be worth your while if you have a rare vehicle. Furthermore, you will have to pay for the towing of the body.
If you sell your car to us, you will only have to spend about 10 minutes or so getting an offer and you will get your money right away.
Do you have the title?
If you do not have the title of your car, you will not be able to sell it to an individual or use it for trade-in. An insurance company will not be able to pay for a car to which you do not have the title. If you need to replace a title, you would have to go through the DMV. They will charge you a fee and take their time about sending the pink slip to you in the mail.
We 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.
