A junk car on your property is not only a nuisance but an eyesore. Neighbors may complain about what the old heap looks like and you may not have the money to get it towed away. You may also think you will fix the non-working car up or take it in for a trade-in.
Fixing a totaled vehicle may cost a lot of money and a trade-in allowance will not be much for a non-working car. Cash Cars Buyers often pays $500 for junk cars depending on the make, model, and year of your car.
Getting rid of a junk car leaves you with extra room in your garage and some extra money in your pocket. We feel that once you research the options for selling your damaged car, you will choose to sell your car to us.
Sell Your Car Online
If you type “Sell my Junk car” into a search engine, many different car sales websites will come up. Each of these sites will charge you a monthly fee to list the car you have for sale. You will get to advertise the car’s specs alongside of one or two pictures of the car.
If you choose this method of car sales, you should know that you will be competing with many other sellers. It may take months to get an interested buyer. You should also know that a person who is interested in a junk car is likely to be a mechanic.
When you finally do get an interested buyer you will have to show them the car. If that person is an amateur mechanic, they may only be interested in certain parts of the car and they are unlikely to have a tow truck or be willing to pay for one. You may well be left with a parted out junk car on your property and little money for the parts.
Selling your car online may also be dangerous. Thieves, sexual predators, and even murders have found their victims on such sites as Craigslist and Backpage.
If you sell your car to Cash Cars Buyers, we can collect the vehicle in 24 hours. We will pay you right away and tow the car away for free.
Trade-in Your Car
If you are in the market for a new car, you probably know that the dealership will offer you a trade-in allowance. If you are trading in a junk car, they are unlikely to offer you very much money for the car and they may even charge you for towing. They will rely on your being too lazy to do you research and know what the automobile is really worth.
Before you go into the dealership, you should go on our website and fill out our form. That way, you will know what your vehicle is worth before you go to the car lot.
A car salesperson may also offer you what seems like a very good amount of a discount for your junk car. Be sure to read the itemized bill for your new car thoroughly, there is a good chance that they will tack the trade-in allowance right back onto the cost of the new car.
It is a good idea not to tell a dealership that you have a car to trade-in. Get the final price before you let them know about your junk car.
Collect Insurance Money
If your car was destroyed in an accident, you may be able to get insurance money for it. Kentucky is a no-fault state which means that a driver’s own insurance company must pay for any car accident-related bills no matter who is responsible for a collision.
In the Bluegrass State, your car is considered totaled if the amount of the repairs would be more than 75% of the value of the car right before the accident. Unfortunately, the amount of the car’s value is determined by the insurance company.
Insurance companies have entire departments dedicated to keeping their money in-house. They are unlikely to give you a fair price for your car. If you do not accept their settlement offer, you will have to hire an attorney and they will take a large chunk of the money they get you.
You will also have to pay an insurance deductible if you file a claim on your car. If you sell your car to us, what we offer you is what you will get and you will get it right away.
Once you have your money, You can go out and enjoy the fabulous city of Independence, KY.

What to do With Your Garage
Now that you have some free space in your garage, you can either use it to store your new car or turn it into an extra room in your house. There are many ways an extra room can save or earn you money.
Make an Extra Bedroom
If one of your kids has been asking for a room of their own or if a relative is coming for an extended stay, you may want to consider turning the garage into an extra bedroom. With the proper installation, someone in the family could have a bedroom, study, or office to themselves.
If anyone in the family has a messy hobby such as painting or paper mache making, the garage is a good place to practice your craft without making a mess of the carpet.
If you are able to add a kitchen sink and a bathroom, you may be able to turn it into a small apartment. Renting out a detached apartment can be quite lucrative. If you don’t want to bother with a long term renter, you can always rent the space out through a home-sharing service such as Airbnb. You will make some extra cash and meet interesting people this way.
