A junk car in your driveway is an eyesore and it can cause neighbors to complain to a Home Owner’s Association. It also takes up space in your driveway or garage that might be occupied by another vehicle or put to better use.
You may be hanging on to that old heap because you think you are going to fix it up someday, use it as a trade-in or you may just not have enough money to get it towed. Fortunately, Cash Cars Buyers can give you up to $500 for your junk car.
There are several different ways you can go about selling a junk car in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. We know that once you take a good look at each one of them, you will see that we can offer you the very best deal.
Sell Your Car Online
If you type, “sell my junk car” into a search engine, you will pull up many a car sales website. These sites will allow you to list your car for a monthly fee. They will normally give you a discount for purchasing multiple months for a listing.
The reason that they charge you by the month is that it may take you months to even get an interested buyer. Generally, the only people who will be interested in buying a non-running car are mechanics and they are likely to only be concerned with the parts. They may leave you with a ravaged junk car on your property if they decide to buy anything at all.
Selling your car online can be dangerous. Many thieves have found their victims online. Bulletin boards such as Craigslist have even been used as a means to introduce murders to their marks. If you sell your car this way, it may be best to meet anyone who calls in a public place.
Use Your Car as a Trade-in
If you are interested in a new car, the car lot or dealership is likely to offer you a trade-in allowance for your old vehicle. When they do this, they are likely to offer you less money than your car is actually worth. They will depend upon your unwillingness to do your research and your being anxious to get rid of your old car.
In some cases, a dealership may offer you a very good trade-in amount, only to tack that same amount back onto the final price. It is always a good idea to go on our website and allow us to give you an offer before you go into the dealership. You should never let a car salesperson know that you have a trade-in until after you get a final price.
Get Insurance Money for Your Car
If your car was wrecked in an accident, you may be able to collect insurance money. Kentucky is a no-fault state, which means that a driver’s own insurance company will pay for their accident-related bills, no matter who is responsible for the crash.
In the state of Kentucky, your car is considered totaled if the damages exceed 75% of the vehicle’s worth seconds before the accident. The insurance company will determine what the car was worth seconds before the accident and they are unlikely to give you a fair amount. If you are unwilling to accept what they offer you, you will have to hire an attorney to represent you.
A lawyer may or may not be able to negotiate a fair price for your car. You may have to sue the insurance company and go to court. If you are offered a better settlement, the attorney will take a good percentage of your money for their services.
The Importance of the Title
If you do not have the title for your car, you will not be able to sell it to an individual, use it as a trade-in, or collect insurance money. You will have to go to the DMV, pay them a fee, and wait for the pink slip to arrive in the mail.
If you sell your car to us, 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.
