What is a junker?

The general rule of thumb for a junker is a vehicle that costs too much to repair beyond its cost or the owner’s ability to pay. There are other criteria that make a car a junker car. Check it out below!

  • The age of your car. Sure, your car may not be running, but for your car to be considered a junker, it needs to be at least three years old. Chances are, your car fits that description with no problem!
  • The value of your junker. No one wants your car due to is condition, not even you. You may try to get rid of it on Craigslist or find its value on Kelley Blue Book. After reviewing your car’s condition, you may find that its value is very low.
  • The Damage your car has. For a car with severe body damage, lots of rust, broken parts and axels and such, chances are you’re probably looking at a junker.
  • Your junker’s operating status: For a car that doesn’t run, this may decrease its value tremendously, thus making it a junk car.

So, if you are able to obtain the title to your junk car, be sure that you can get it. Once you determine that you want to sell your car, you will need the title that will show proof you are the owner of the car.

Before you take your car to a salvage yard or a junkyard, you want to make sure that you have an idea of what your car is worth.

You can “scrap the idea” resale value and turn your attention to the current value of scrap metal. There are great places online that offer you the day’s scrap prices.

The value of scrap metal changes quite frequently and you want to make sure that you have the current prices on hand. So, be sure to look up the total weight of your car. Then, you can calculate the value of your car based upon the weight as well as current value of the scrap metal. Although you won’t have an exact value, you will have an idea of what some salvage or scrap yards will offer you for your junk car.

Don’t’ forget to factor in the “junked” condition of your car. You have to consider if your car needs towing to a salvage yard as well as other factors. You definitely have to do your homework and keep up with the daily scrap and metal prices on a regular basis!

Junker car parts- Which parts will get me the most money?

Exhaust Systems

For someone looking for a replacement exhaust system that comes with a catalytic converter, you can expect to spend around $500 – $1,000. A good exhaust system helps to control the engine noise and reduce fumes that your car releases in to the air.
