If your car has broken down beyond repair, you may be able to get a little money to soften the blow. Car repair shops will buy the salvageable parts of junk cars and offer them at a greatly reduced price to their customers. If the frame of your car is totaled, some of your engine parts may still be useful, and if the engine is shot, there are probably other parts that can be used. Either way, call around to several junk yards and find out what kind of price you can get for your vehicle before you simply have it towed.
The first question a junk yard will ask is if you own the title for the car. You need to have a hard copy of the title with your name as the owner since legitimate junk yards will only purchase junk cars from their owners and not a second party.
Before you begin calling the junk yards in your area, make a list of damages and parts that are currently missing from your vehicle. Also note which systems don’t work, and be sure to note tire wear. The condition of interior elements may also be helpful to record. The yard owner will probably ask you about all these things as he determines what price to offer. You’ll probably be offered anywhere from $32 to $320 for the car depending on its condition.
If your engine isn’t running, but requires an easy and inexpensive fix, it may be worth the cost since a car that’s running will probably get a larger amount of money. Just remember, that it will probably be around the $320 mark, so don’t spend a huge amount of money just to get the car to run. You don’t want to pour more money into it than you’ll get at the junk yard! If you want to sell junk cars Coral Springs always ensure about the cash you are getting. Always sell your junk car for optimum cost.
Call around to several junk yards near your home or broken down car’s location to get the best price. If your car isn’t running and there’s no way for you to tow it to the yard, be sure to find places near enough who would be willing to tow the car for all small fee or maybe even free. If possible, use your own (or a friend’s) tow bar, tow dolly or one more authorized towing resource and bring the vehicle to the yard yourself.
