Is Your Car Really Junk?
It can be tricky to ascertain the value of a junk car. These vehicles are unlike used cars that have their value based on how old they are. Junk cars depend on the current scrap price. Before you go about determining the worth of your junk car, you need to be sure that your car is actually junk.
Every car is worth something. You may think that your vehicle is worthless just because the suspension system finally gave up or the transmission is beyond repair. However, you need to understand that there can be other parts in your vehicle that can be resold to make a profit.
Junk cars that are sold as scrap are the has-beens’. They are completely rusted over and do not have a single part worth selling. These may include accident wrecks that are completely damaged on all sides. Junk cars are usually sold to scrap car buyers for their weight. You won’t be able to sell these cars on your own to private buyers.
Cars with useful parts that can be resold may be termed junk, but they are far more in worth as compared to total clunkers. You should think about parting out these cars. There are many junk car buyers in Akron, OH who would offer you a great value for your wheels.
Cash Cars Buyer purchases all cars in any conditions. Whether you have a total junk or a semi-junk, we are ready to offer you good money for it. We are a trusted, family owned business and never stoop to lowballing our customers. Our sophisticated price tool uses an algorithm based on NADA guides and KBB. This ensures that you get the maximum value for your wheels.
Gather Necessary Information
The first step in determining the value of a car is to note all important information. The more you know about a car, the more you can get for it on the open market. Having hands-down knowledge about cars in general will also lend you a great negotiation edge. You need to make a note of all the additional accessories and useful features in your vehicle.
Got custom alloys? Upgraded the entertainment system? Changed the engine oil recently? Got OEM parts? All these can bump up the value of your vehicle. You can also make an extra buck for special features. For instance, does your car come with a rack that is specific to the car model?
Does your car have Bluetooth connectivity or a manufacturer-installed GPS system? It may come as a surprise to you but heated seating can also be resold if they are in good condition.
Once you are done making a list of all parts that work and the ones that do not, you need to start taking note of basic information. Identify the car’s make, model, and trim if you do not already know. Take note of the odometer reading. Your car may be under warranty if you did not drive it much and the mileage is low.
Some junk cars can be auctioned or resold. Cash Cars Buyer tries to get minimally damaged vehicles on the road again. These cars can fetch a better price. You may get even more if you have the paperwork for warranties.
An important price factor in cars that can be resold is the current condition and whether any parts have been removed. You need to make a note of all the dings, dents, and scratches. Does the right hand side passenger door close fully? Is the glass in the side view mirror OEM? Do the wipers function? Are the wiper blades new or scratchy? Are there any upholstery issues?
Cash Cars Buyer can offer you a free, no-obligation quote in just 60 seconds based on this information. We like to keep things simple. If you are accurate about the car’s description, we will stand behind our offer price till the end. You do not have to worry about last minute price reductions with us.
Do You Have the Paperwork?
Documents and complete paperwork is an important price factor. Cars with clean title and paperwork sell for more as compared to vehicles without the paperwork. You should get the paperwork ready before you start searching for a buyer.
There are many places that buy junk cars in Akron, OH. However, you would need the car title to sell your vehicle to these places. It can get difficult to find a buyer willing to accept a car without the title. Only certified and reputed junkyards are allowed to purchase scrap cars without the car title.
Cash Cars Buyer can take care of the paperwork if you lost the car title. We offer no title car removal in Ohio. All we need is a copy of the car registration and your driver’s license. This is to make sure that the car belongs to you. However, we do advise all our customers to apply for a replacement or a duplicate car title. This way you can let the DMV know that you have sold the car and are no longer the rightful owner.
The process is simple and does not take long. We can help you through it if you want. You should also get the service history and repair bills out for your car if it is in a reselling condition. Car buyers would pay more for a car, even if it is old, if they know that the engine is well maintained with periodic oil changes.
Find Out What Your Car Is Worth
There are three types of junk cars – the scrap cars, the ones with working parts, and the ones that can be resold. The way to determine the value of all these three categories is different. Cash Cars Buyer offers the most cash for cars in Akron, OH. You can sell us any car in any condition and we will pay the most for it.
These cars are sold by weight. You should just take stock of the amount of plastic and metal in the vehicle. Most cases you would not even need paperwork to sell these vehicles. Look through the net to find out different kinds of metals used in your vehicle and their approximate weight.
Next, use a metal exchange like London Metal Exchange to find out current scrap prices for different metals. Simple calculation would give you a rough idea for what your car is worth. While negotiating with a buyer, make sure you ask whether towing is included in the price or not. Also, try getting a cash offer. There are many scam artists that would not think twice before cheating you.
These cars can be sold for parts. You can either part out the car on your own or you can sell it to a junkyard like Cash Cars Buyer for a fair value. It can be difficult to sell individual car parts on your own. It can take anywhere from a few months to years for you to sell the car completely.
You would still need to take the remaining heap of metal and plastic to a scrap car dealer. You may also lose money if you need to hire a mechanic to yank out the parts for you. In addition, you need to take care that parts are removed in an eco-friendly way. For instance, you could pollute the environment if you remove the engine without draining the engine oil and other fluids.
Cash Cars Buyer offers the maximum value for cars that have reusable and working parts.
These are the ones that are in working order and can be resold. They fetch the most. However, you need to get the paperwork ready for these cars. You can find out what these cars are worth by using KBB. Cash Cars Buyer can offer the maximum value for junk cars that can be resold.
