There is nothing quite as unsightly as a non-running car in your driveway. Some homeowner’s associations even forbid residence from keeping junk cars on their property.
In addition to being unsightly, a junk automobile just takes up space on your property. If the car is in your driveway, you can use the space to park a working ca. If the car is in the garage you can use it to store another vehicle or create a whole new room.
$500 Cash for Junk Cars
Cash Cars Buyers can give you good money for your junk car. We pay $500 for junk cars depending on the type and condition of the vehicle.
When you decide to get rid of your junk car, you will find that you have several options for selling it or trading it. We believe that once you weigh all of your options, you will find that we can offer you the very best deal possible.
Trade-in Your Car
If you are in the market for a new car, you probably know that the dealership you go to will offer you a trade-in allowance for your old vehicle. Even if you have a running car to trade in, the dealership is unlikely to offer you what it is worth. They rely on their customers being too lazy to get a price from a junkyard or independent buyer.
A dealership may also give you what seems to be a very good price for a trade-in allowance and then try to put the amount they gave you for your old car back onto the final price of the new car. Be sure to read every line of the lease or bill of sale very carefully and make sure you are actually getting what they promised you.
Be sure to contact us and get an offer before you go into the dealership. Make sure the salesperson at the dealership gives you a final price in writing before you tell them that you have a car to trade-in.
Collect Insurance Money
If your car was totaled in an accident and you had insurance, the insurance company should pay for your totaled car. Kentucky is a no-fault state which means that a driver’s own insurance company is responsible for paying their accident-related bills no matter who caused the crash. It also means that a driver will pay their own deductible when they have an accident.
A car is considered totaled if the amount of the damages is more than 75% of the value of the car. Hence, if your car is damaged in an accident, you should be paid the amount of money that it was worth seconds before the crash. Unfortunately, the insurance company will determine the amount of money that the vehicle is worth.
There is no state or federal standard by which insurance companies decide how much a car is worth. As you can imagine, it is the goal of any insurance company to keep its money in house and an adjuster is likely to try and lowball you.
If they offer you too little money or no money at all, you will have to hire a personal injury attorney to negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. If you end up having to file a lawsuit, your case could take years. If you get money, your attorney will take a good chunk of it.
When you sell your car to us, we will pay you and tow the old heap away for free. We can get your cash in your hand in as little as 24 hours.
Sell Your Car Online
You always have the option of listing your car on an online car sales website. These websites will charge you a fee to list your car for anywhere between one and six months. They list your car for so long because it takes a long time to sell your vehicle this way.
When you list your car on a website, you will compete with many people. When you do have a prospective buyer, you will have to take time out of your day to show the car. Anyone looking for a junk car online is likely to be a mechanic who knows a good deal about automobiles.
You may not sell your car to the first prospective buyer or the fifth. An amateur mechanic may only want a part or two and they may leave you with a junk car on your property that is missing parts.
What if I don’t have the title?
You cannot sell your car independently, trade it in, or collect insurance money if you do not have the title. You will have to go to the DMV and pay a fee if you want to get it replaced.
Cash Cars Buyers does not need a title. In most cases, no title is no problem as long as you have your driver's license and a copy of your registration.
What to do with Your Garage
Once your old car is towed, you can use the garage space for so many things. You can create a bedroom or a room for hobbies.
Turn your Garage into a Bedroom
If one of your kids is clamoring for their own room, or if you have an adult offspring who has not yet left the nest, you can insulate your garage and turn it into a bedroom. Some people even turn their garages into small apartments by installing bathrooms and a kitchen sink.
An extra room is a good place to practice music or messy hobbies. If you have a painter in the family, the garage is the perfect place to work without making a mess.
An extra bedroom or small apartment in your home can earn you hundreds of extra dollars a month if you rent it out. If you don’t want to be a landlord and deal with a lease, you can rent out the room through a home-sharing service such as Airbnb.
Create a Home Gym
Let’s face it, almost nobody gets to the gym as often as they would like and no one likes having money taken out of their account every month. Why not take the money we give you for your junk car and use it to buy an elliptical and some weights? They will pay for themselves in a year or so and you will never have to miss a workout again.
