How Can I Sell My Scrap Car for Money?

In an ideal world, trading in your old junk car for a new one would be a breeze. The dealership would accept any car and give you a great offer, no matter the circumstances. Third-party buyers would line up, competing to pay above your asking price. But unfortunately, reality can be a bit more complicated.

Dealerships often refuse to buy cars that aren’t in pristine condition, claiming they will lose money by purchasing your car. Third-party buyers are often wary of a vehicle that has less than perfect appeal, afraid of being ripped off or buying a lemon. Particularly if you’ve had an accident or other major damage, getting any money back for your vehicle can be difficult.

You might think you have no option left but to take your car to a scrapyard and get a few measly bucks back for your trouble. Or you might attempt to sell your car part by part, only to be frustrated at how difficult the process is without professional equipment. There is another option, however: selling your car on DamagedCars.com!

The Disadvantages of Selling a Car to a Scrap Yard

Scrapping your car is sometimes your only option, especially if you have had a recent wreck or if your vehicle needs repairs that would cost more than its value (i.e. transmission failure). If you find yourself in this position (and if you’re reading this, you probably are), don’t settle for the nearest scrapyard offer. Scrapyards offer a host of different prices for your vehicle, and you must be savvy about the value of your car before you bring it in.

Scrap Yards Who Buy Cars

Many times you won’t get the full value of your vehicle parts from a car scrap yard. Occasionally a scrapyard will only offer a few hundred dollars for a totaled vehicle that still has an abundance of nice, undamaged parts. Some scrap yards aren’t looking for a whole vehicle, either; they may only want to salvage its metal. Check a scrap yard near you prices to compare how much you can get.

In addition, the scrapyard can’t come to you. If your junker has been sitting in your yard killing your grass, it’s likely to stay there unless you pay for it to be towed. Subtract the price of that tow truck from the scrapyard’s offer and you’ll get an even lower return on your vehicle since the prices are based on the auto scrap your car will yield.

 

Can I Sell My Car’s Parts Piece by Piece?

Selling your car’s parts may sound like a simple solution. You might be thinking that if you play your cards right, you can make a profit on each and every valuable part of your car. Technically, you would be right—there is a market for car parts in good condition out there. But for the average person, dismantling a car for its parts isn’t very simple. You’ll need quite a few professional tools to do the job, not to mention the manpower, space, customers and time to do so.

Even if you have everything required to dismantle your vehicle bit by bit, you probably don’t have a way to dispose of harmful chemicals that your car parts might emit. Air conditioners, batteries, and other important car components all have materials that can’t be taken out with the weekly garbage.

Testimonials from Real Clients

I was skeptical of Damaged Cars because it was a company I was not familiar with and they pay with a check which I was uncomfortable with in a world where everyone is trying to screw you but after a lot of research and speaking with their kind reps I saw that it was a legit company with phenomenal reviews and A+ BBB rating.

Damagedcars gave me a fair price for my wrecked car. I called for an estimate and in less than a week the car was towed and a check was in my hand. A great service and I highly recommend it for anyone that needs to sell a wrecked car quickly.
