Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you pay for cars?

Every cash offer we make is based on the individual situation. Primarily, the vehicle condition, the year, make, and model, the mileage, and other information you provide factors into our offer.

What things should I avoid in dealing with local junk yards in Philly?

  • Don’t pay the tow truck driver directly to haul away your car. A good junk yard pays the tow truck driver so you don’t have to.

  • Never sign the title over before getting paid for your car.

  • Don’t accept a cut price afterward. A favorite tactic for junk yards is to settle on a price, then try to renegotiate when picking up your car. If they try that, tell them to get lost.

  • Don’t give it away for free! Your junk car has value, even if it’s for scrap.

Is it a good idea to Sell Car Parts for Cash in Philadelphia?

It’s a bad idea! Not only is it tedious, it’s not safe. When you sell car parts for cash in Philadelphia or anywhere else, your car will sit around until you sell all the parts, and that takes time. You need to organize with buyers to pick up the parts they need, and barter on a price for a part. Plus, you’ll never part out the entire car on your own, leaving a shell of a car to take care of at the end.

Broken cars are a hazard in your driveway with sharp rusty edges in many cases. And there’s always a chance you can get ripped off by a buyer when you try to sell car parts for cash.

What areas of Philadelphia do you purchase cars?

How do I transfer my vehicle title in Pennsylvania to Damaged Cars?

Pennsylvania has unique requirements for transferring a title. The Pennsylvania title has one location for the seller signature. On the back of the title in the upper-right section, the seller signs the line marked "SIGNATURE OF SELLER". Make sure you don’t sign in any other location.

Anyone listed as “Registered Owner” on the front of the title must sign as “Seller” using the same name shown on the title. Only the “RegisteredOwner” can sell a vehicle, and the state of Pennsylvania requires a title for the sale of any car, truck or SUV. If you don’t have the title, make your way to your nearest Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Drive & Vehicle Services for a duplicate title before you sell your damaged car.
