Thankfully, there are a few ways to sell a junk car. A dealership might be the first place to come to mind. Car dealerships have traditionally been the go-to for car buying, selling, and trading. However, salvage yards and online marketplaces are other options.

There are pros and cons associated with each so it will be helpful to fully understand each. Moreover, one option will leave you with the most money in your pocket. Find out below.

Will a Dealership Buy My Junk Car?

In short, yes, a dealership will buy your junk car. There is a downside though: they will significantly undercut the value of your car.

Dealerships aren’t known for fairly evaluating the worth of any vehicle. Even barely used cars will be valued lower than they are worth. Then, the dealership will likely sell it at a higher price. They are in the business of making money, even if their practices aren’t advantageous for customers.

Basically, selling to a dealership will not result in a fair exchange for you.

How Much is My Car Worth at a Junkyard?

Junkyards and salvage yards are common places for old and dilapidated vehicles. For many vehicles, they are also the only places that will assign them any worth. Old cars with bad engines, broken air conditioners, torn up interiors, and 100,000 miles or more will have little value outside of a salvage yard.

Junkyards evaluate automobiles based on the weight of their scrap metal. Your estimate can vary widely depending on the scrap yard and day as prices fluctuate often. Moreover, it will be difficult to research the value yourself as Kelley Blue Book does not evaluate cars by the weight of their metal. So, you will have no idea if a junkyard is even giving you a fair estimate.

In addition, junkyards are notorious for their dishonest business practices. Even if they quote you a good deal, they might change it at the last minute. Sometimes they give you a lowball offer after you already paid for your car to get towed to their yard. This is horrible customer service and completely unfair to you.

While not all junkyards operate this way – some run honest and even environmentally-friendly establishments – it may take time to find the right yard.

Who Buys Junk Cars Online?

Besides dealerships and salvage yards, you can try selling your junk vehicle in the private market online. The internet is the best way to get your car in front of millions of potential buyers. Tons of different kinds of buyers are looking for damaged and imperfect cars.

While it is possible to find multiple interested buyers for your junk car, they might not be willing to pay your asking price. Like dealerships, many people are looking out for their own finances, not yours. When they see a barely running, rusty car, they are not going to place much value in it.

As a result, you will be left haggling left and right to get a buyer to pay the price you are looking for.
