Trying to sell a damaged car on the private market doesn't always make sense. Broken vehicles are pretty useless to the average driver. This is especially true for those with little to no knowledge of car repair. Thus, attempting to sell a broken car can be a difficult endeavor.

Fortunately, it is possible to sell a car that needs extensive repairs. It’s even possible to sell one that is complete junk with no hope of repairs. Find out below how you can get rid of your damaged car and get paid for it.

Thinking About Repairing Your Damaged Car?

Not all damaged cars are lost causes. There are degrees of damage and some only require easy and relatively inexpensive fixes.

To determine if completing repairs will be worth it, you first have to first find all the damages in your car. While pricey, fixing scratches, dents, and old paint is simple and will have your car looking new. Replacing windows, handles, or interior components might also be worth the repair costs.

However, more complex repairs may need greater consideration. The age of your vehicle, the cause of the damage, and the frequency of breakage are all things to take into account.

If your car is fairly new and sustained damage from an accident, it might be worth replacing the necessary part instead of purchasing a new car. While a new engine or transmission can cost thousands of dollars, a brand-new vehicle will cost even more.

On the other hand, if you have a 20-year-old car that regularly stalls, leaks, or breaks-down, you should consider selling it. In this case, your money will be better used toward a down payment for a newer, more reliable vehicle.

When It’s Time To Let Go Of A Damaged Car

Not all drivers agree on the right time to let go of a broken car. Those with the financial means to do so can purchase new cars whenever they want an upgrade or simply do not want to go through the process of repairing a damaged vehicle.

However, most drivers must be more frugal and conscious of their spending. As a result, the decision to get rid of a broken car is not an easy one.

A good rule of thumb is to compare your car’s current value with the estimated cost of repairs. You may have spent much more than what your vehicle is worth in repairs already. If the amount you are spending trying to keep your car alive significantly exceeds the amount that you can get for it, you might want to reconsider continuing repairs.

The cost of fixing a car can quickly add up, especially if numerous parts need replacement. It will be a better financial decision to buy a new or used car instead. This way, thousands of dollars will be put to good use and you will have a working vehicle that will get you where you need to go.
