When is a car considered junk?
Although it may be tempting to scream at a car that is not working and call it a piece of junk, that’s not the exact reason why a car is considered junk. A junk car is a vehicle that cost more to repair than the owner can afford or the vehicle is actually worth. If your old junker is out in the yard, getting rusty and collecting dust, it may cost more to get that thing on the road than it actually is worth.
How can I tell if my car is junk?
The best thing to do when trying to figure out if your car is a junk car, is to contact several repair shops to begin to get estimates. In my opinion, it’s best to get at least three estimates and then take the average of the three. Remember; if you don’t know what’s wrong with your car, you may have to have your car towed down to shops which will cost you money. This can be a bit of a hassle rest assured it will ensure that you make a good final decision.
You will then need to assess the value of your car and see how it compares to the cost to repair it. You can use several reputable sites on the Internet like Kelley blue book or Edmunds to accomplish this task. Keep in mind the value you were going to see is if your car is in working condition! It may be worth it to you to fix your vehicle, get it into working condition and then sell it. It really just depends on how much your car is worth and how much the repair is going to cost but you can see where the math is going on this.
Keep in mind that you may have a vehicle that is rare, antique, or valuable to collectors for some other reason. It’s best to know this before going into this process.
