Sell A Non-Working Car With DamagedCars

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 get cash for your non working car?

The right answer depends on your situation; if there are serious mechanical problems, repairing your car could cost anywhere 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 your car that won’t start or run

DamagedCars is always ready to help you sell your non-working vehicle with a process tailor-made to be easy for you. With nearly two decades of experience buying less-than-perfect cars, we know how to determine a fair market value for cars in any condition

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Sell A Car That Doesn’t Work?

Absolutely. Cars that don’t run still have value for their parts that may be reusable and for their scrap metal. Tracking the price of metals around the year can net you a decent profit from selling your non-running car.

How Much Can You Get For A Non-Running Car?

Most junk vehicles sell within the $100-$500 range. While this is the average, some junk cars will sell for less and others may fetch a higher price depending on various factors. The best way to find out what you can get is to reach out to local junk car buyers in your area and compare quotes

Who Buys Non Running Cars Near Me?

You have a few options to sell a not working car fast:

  • Junkyards and scrap yards

  • Private buyers

  • Dealerships

  • Online car buyers

Junkyards will typically pay what your car is worth in parts or scrap metal, while private buyers are typically looking for vehicles that can be repaired and put back on the road.

Dealerships may be willing to accept damaged cars in the hopes that you’ll be tempted to use it as a trade-in for a newer vehicle, but they are unlikely to give you what the car is worth, since they don’t specialize in cars with problems.

Online buyers like DamagedCars, however, specialize in broken cars and know how to make the process simple. We make an offer in 90 seconds online or by phone, schedule your pickup within 24-48 hours, and then tow your car for free and provide on-the-spot payment.
