Whether you have a Ford Pinto on blocks on your front lawn or a non-working classic car in your garage, getting rid of a junk car can be a time-consuming task. You could try to sell the car or use it as a trade-in. However, selling a car on your own is a hassle and automobile dealerships do not always give you a good deal. Before you sell your junk car, you should evaluate all the options that you have and what the benefits are of each. Selling a junk car can be profitable and hassle-free if you know what you are doing.
The City of Virginia Beach
There are so many things to see and do in the beautiful city of Virginia Beach. If you sell your old clunker to us, you will have the funds to enjoy some of the attractions that America’s First Region is known for. The historic town is home to a host of museums and classic homes.
You will find several historic landmarks as you walk along the beaches. First State Landing Park offers many acres of natural areas to enjoy. There you will find hiking trails, a marsh, and swampland.
The Cape Henry Lighthouse can be found near the beach at the Fort Story Military Base. It was the first lighthouse in the United States.
The Virginia Beach Boardwalk is 28 feet wide and a great place to walk, bike, or rollerblade. You will find many vendors there, selling food, tee shirts, and other wares.
The Virginia Military Aviation Museum gives you a gander at many of the planes that were used in WWI and WWII. You will get to walk through two hangers of airplanes and learn a bit about the architecture of the crafts.
You can take a tour of some of the locations in town that are said to be haunted. Be sure to check out The Cavalier Hotel. Visitors have seen a piano in the hotel playing all by itself, heard the ghost of a cat scratching late at night, and even seen the spirit of Adolph Coors who was found dead on the grounds in 1923.

Even if your car is running, you may have a different reason for wanting to get rid of it. It may be old or in ill repair. Or you may simply not have room enough for an extra car on your property. When you decide to part with a car, you will find that there are a few places that buy junk cars. You may also have a few other ways to get cash for your car.
If you are planning on getting your next car from a dealership, they are likely to offer you a trade-in amount. In some cases, they may offer you an amount that is far below what your car is actually worth. They may believe that you will take a lesser amount to avoid the hassle of selling your car independently.
Car dealerships will often offer you a very good trade-in price on your car and you may think that you have gotten a good deal. However, unethical dealerships will often tag the same or the entire amount of the trade into the final cost of your car.
Selling old cars online
The internet has become a popular place to sell junk cars. You may choose to sell your whole car or sell the car for parts. You can advertise the car online, but you are likely to have to pay to place the ad. You will be competing with many other cars if you list your car on an online classified bulletin board or auto website.
If you sell your car yourself, you may have to meet with quite a few potential buyers before you actually sell it and you may end up unable to sell the vehicle at all. If you sell the individual parts, you may end up having the car in your driveway for a long time and you will still have to have the body of the car towed away.
If you sell your car to us, you will get paid for the car right away and we will tow it away for free. The whole transaction can be over within a day,
Selling your car online can actually be very dangerous. Remember that you will have people that you do not know coming over to your home. There have been more than a few crimes associated with online bulletin boards.
Letting Insurance Pay for a Totaled Car
If your car was totaled in an accident, the insurance company of the responsible driver or your own insurance company should pay you for the vehicle. However, insurance companies have their own set of standards when it comes to determining how much your car is worth. They are likely to lowball you.
If they offer you an amount that you feel is too low, there is a good chance you will have to hire an attorney to advocate on your behalf. A personal injury attorney will take 40% of any money that you receive. So you may want to consider if it is worth it.
Insurance claims can take a long time to resolve and it may take months to receive your money. When you file an insurance claim you will still have to make a co-payment and spend a long time on the phone,
When you sell your car to us, you will fill out a short form, spend a few minutes on the phone with us and get your money and your car towed anytime you choose.

The Importance of the Pink Slip
If you want to get money for your car from an insurance company, you will have to be in possession of the title of the car. The same holds true if you want to sell your car to a lot or to an individual person.
The title, which is also known as the pink slip, will have pertinent information about the car itself such as the weight length and date of purchase. It will also list all of the previous owners, how much you paid for it and when you bought it. It will notate if the vehicle has been salvaged and that can affect the amount of money you may get for it.
A lost pink slip takes a while to replace. In the state of Virginia, you will have to go to the DMV to replace the document and they will charge you a fee. If your vehicle has any liens on it, you will have to show that the lien has been satisfied to obtain your title.
When you sell your car to Cash Cars Buyers, you are likely not to have to worry about the pink slip. In most cases, no title is no problem as long as you have your driver’s license and a copy of your registration.
