What Should You Do With A Non-Working Car?

Do you have a car that won’t turn on sitting in your driveway? Has your vehicle’s engine given up on you? When you’re dealing with a non-working car, you might feel like you’re at a loss for what to do. Should you fix the car or try to sell it for cash?

The right answer can vary depending on your situation. Is your car not working because the battery needs to be replaced? That’s an easy fix, and you can probably replace the battery and get the car up and running for $100.

However, if there are more serious mechanical problems with your car, trying to fix it might cost a lot more than $100. Certain car repairs, like a transmission failure, can cost you between $5,000 and $10,000. At a certain point, trying to fix a junk car is no longer worthwhile. At that point, you should consider selling the vehicle.

Where Can I Sell A Non-Working Car?

There are numerous options for selling a non-working vehicle, depending on your goals and timeline.

If you already have your eye on a new vehicle, you can trade your car in at a dealership. Although not all dealerships will accept broken-down or non-running vehicles, many will. Keep in mind that you may have to cover the cost of towing the car to the dealership. Additionally, you might get a lower offer at a dealership than elsewhere.

You can also sell your car to a junkyard or scrap yard. Your local junkyard will typically tow your car for free. However, it’s a good idea to contact multiple yards. Some will offer you a better price for your car depending on its make and model, while others will offer a flat fee based on your vehicle’s size.

Depending on what car you have, selling it privately may be the best way to get the most for your vehicle. When selling your car to an individual, you must take precautions to ensure your safety, such as meeting in a public location. Additionally, you and the buyer may need to negotiate who will cover the cost of towing the damaged car.

The fastest way to sell your junk car for a fair price may be to go online. Online car buyers can typically offer quotes in minutes, helping you decide what your vehicle is worth faster. Additionally, they typically include free towing automatically.

What’s The Best Place To Sell A Non-Working Car?

The best place to sell your car depends on your goals and locations. For instance, you may live in an area that has limited junkyards, which means you won’t have many places to get quotes from. Alternatively, you might not be able to find a dealership near you that accepts non-running cars as trade-ins.

If your car is unique or has special trims, you might be able to get a better price selling it privately. However, finding a buyer could take weeks or months, depending on your price point. The ease of selling your car privately depends on your location. Additionally, if your car is only worth a few hundred dollars and needs to be towed, many buyers will walk away from the deal.

Selling it online could be the easiest way to get rid of it. Going online makes it easy to find a willing buyer in minutes and get accurate quotes for your car. Trying to estimate what it’s worth independently can be difficult. Additionally, going online typically saves you from the stress of trying to figure out how to transport a non-running car.

However, not all online car buyers are the same. Find out why selling your non-running car to DamagedCars.com is the best choice for you.
