Is there anything worse than having an old car that barely runs break down on you while you are driving it? It isn’t worth getting it fixed and you may not be able to get much for a trade-in, so it just sits there in your garage or in your driveway. It is a useless eyesore at best and an embarrassing problem to have on your property.
Who buys junk cars?
Cash Cars Buyers will be happy to take the car off your hands. We will tow it away for free and pay you in cash. We pay $500 for junk cars depending on the type and condition of the vehicle. We recognize that you have a choice when selling your junk car and we feel sure that once you think about each one, you will find that we are the best option.
Sell Your Car Online
When you Googled, “places that buy non-running cars,” you probably came up with a list of websites on which to sell your car. These sites will allow you to list your car for what seems like a reasonable fee. The reason these sites charge by the month is that it may take months to sell your car.
If you advertise on one of these sites, you will compete with hundreds of other people. The only people who will be interested in a junk car are independent mechanics. We can give you more money than other junkyards and an amateur mechanic is likely not to want your whole car, but just one or two of its parts.
When you finally do get an interested party, you will have to arrange for a time to show the car. You may have to show it several times before selling it and the buyer may not want to pay for towing. They may offer you less money than you originally wanted because they know you are anxious to get the old car off your hands.
Selling a car online can also be dangerous. Many murderers and robbers have found their victims on billboards such as Craigslist and Backpage. If you sell your car this way have someone with you or meet them at a neutral location.
Donate Your Car
There are several different charitable organizations that will tow your junk car away, sell it to a junkyard, and keep the profits. They will provide you with a receipt for your taxes. Although it is a good idea to give to charity, donating a car to a not-for-profit may not be the best way to support them.
Charitable organizations are often understaffed and those who do work there are often underpaid or volunteers. It may take them quite a while to remove your car and even longer to get you the receipt. You will also have to wait until tax time to get your write off.
If you sell your car to Cash Cars Buyers, we will give you your money right away. Once you have your cash in hand, you can give as much as you want to the charity of your choice. They will still give you a receipt for your taxes.
Use Your Car as a Trade-In
If you are interested in getting a new car, the dealership is likely to offer you a trade-in allowance for an old automobile. If you use your junk car for this trade-in, they are unlikely to give you much of a discount. They will rely on you to be too lazy to do your research and find out how much your car is worth.
A car salesperson may also give you a good amount for your trade-in. Just make sure to read the itemized price of your new car before accepting their offer. They are likely to tack the amount of the trade-in right back onto the cost of the new car.
Before you go into a dealership, make sure to call us to find out what your car is really worth. Do not tell them that you have a car to trade in until you get your final price. This will force them to tell you what their real offer is for your old vehicle.
A Word About the Pink Slip
If you do not have the title to your car you will not be able to sell it, donate it or trade it in. You will have to go to the DMV to get a new one. They will charge you a fee and make you wait for it to arrive in the mail.
Cash Cars Buyers 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.
