There is nothing that connotates a bad stereotype of the south quite as much as a junk car on a person’s lawn. In addition to being unsightly, a junk car is not doing anything but taking up space on your property.
If you have it in the driveway, you are losing a parking space and if you have it in the garage, you are cheating yourself out of space that could be used for any number of purposes.
Cash Cars Buyers can not only take that junk heap off of your property, but we will also pay you for it on the same day. We are primarily interested in cars that were manufactured from 2000 to 2020. We will always pay you in cash and give you a great price for your vehicle.
The Benefits of Selling Your Junk Car
When you sell your nonrunning car to us, you will not only get money but gain space. There are so many things that a person can do with a free garage. You can extend your enjoyment of your own home or even make money with your garage.
A free garage can mean lots of extra storage space. It can also be the perfect place to put a home gym or a workshop. A garage can be transformed into an extra bedroom or even an artist studio.
If you don’t need the extra space, you should consider if you need extra money. You could rent out your garage for storage to someone who does need it. You can also turn it into a carriage house that you can rent out on a home-sharing service.
You can use all of that extra money to buy a new car and to see the sights of some of the town you call home. The city of Morgantown, West Virginia has so much to see and do. It is a great place to entertain visitors or just enjoy a staycation.

Getting Money for your Junk Car
There are several different ways that you can get money for your old car, no matter what condition the car is in. You will want to weigh all of your options carefully before deciding which one is right for you.
Use Your Car as a Trade-in.
If you are in the market for a new car, the dealership may offer you a certain trade-in allowance. Be very careful to do your research before going into the dealership. You can get an idea of the value of your car by looking in the Kelly Blue Book.
The dealership may offer you far less money than the car is actually worth. They will try to pressure you into taking their offer right away before you leave the showroom. You may want to get a few offers on your junk car before shopping for the new car. Let the salesman know the amount of those offers before he gives you a final price.
Car dealers will often give you what sounds like an extraordinarily large amount of money for your trade-in. Make sure to read every line of your offer before you sign it. Car salespeople will often tack the amount that you were given as a trade-in allowance onto the final price of the car.
Take Insurance Money for the Car
If your car was damaged in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver, their insurance should pay for the damages. If the accident was more than 50 percent your fault, you may not be able to recover damages.
In order to get money for an insurance claim, a driver should call the police, stay at the scene, and exchange information with the other driver. You should also get the names of any witnesses and take pictures of the damage.
When you call the insurance company, they will ask you detailed questions about your accident. They are likely to ask to tape-record you, but you do not have to let them. They will ask you about the condition of your car before the accident and they may try to trip you up.
The insurance company will then investigate your claim. If the claim is accepted they will make you a settlement offer. Insurance companies are experts at keeping their money in the house and they are likely to offer you a lot less than your car is worth.
You can accept the paltry offer or you can hire a car accident attorney. If the attorney gets you more money than the insurance companies original offer, the attorney will keep a big chunk of your settlement.
We will give you a fair deal on your car and tow it away free of charge within 24 hours.
Sell the Car Yourself
You always have the option of selling the car yourself on a website like Craigslist or on a site that is devoted to car sales. If you advertise your vehicle on a car sales website, you will compete with many other people. They will charge you and you may have to wait months before a prospective buyer even contacts you.
Sites like Craigslist will charge you a fee for your ad and your listing will be one of many. You will have to show the car yourself and this can be dangerous. Many criminals have found their marks through Craigslist.
Remember that visitors to these websites are not vetted in any way and they will have your name, address, and phone number.
We never visit anyone’s home until we have made an offer and they have accepted it. A trained employee of our licensed junkyard will come to your home and tow your vehicle away.
The Cash Cars Buyers Process
Once you decide to get rid of that non-working car, you can fill out our form to get an offer. We will ask you for your name, email address, and phone number. We will also ask you for the make model and license plate number, and VIN number of your car. A team member will then call you back with an offer.
If you accept our offer, we will make an appointment with you to come and buy your car. Our prompt staff member will perform a quick inspection, pay you, and tow the car away.
You May Not Even Need a Pink Slip
If you want to sell your car on your own, trade it in, or even get insurance money for it, you will need the title. If you don’t have the title, you will have to go to the DMV to get a new one issued. They will charge you and make you wait a while to get the document.
We do not necessarily 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.
