Fortunately, even cars that are no longer in working order still have a lot of life left in them! All it takes is a knowledgeable salvage yard to properly recycle your vehicle.

Recycling your car is the most environmentally friendly decision you can make when your car is no longer drivable, and it’s also the most financially friendly choice. Salvage yards are only interested in cars they can recycle, meaning they’re better prepared than private buyers or dealerships to offer you a fair value for your car.

When Is It Time?

Some drivers may find the decision on when to part ways with their cars a difficult one to make. Especially for people with sentimental attachment to their cars, it can be hard to notice how frequent those trips to the mechanic are becoming.

However, it’s important to remember that moving on from your car at the right time is an important financial decision to make, as well as one that protects your physical safety.

If you’ve been in an accident and your insurance company said your car is totaled, you don’t have much of a choice. Your insurer decided for you that the cost of repairs to your car isn’t worth it compared to its value.

You can buy your car back from your insurer and sell it to a scrapyard to maximize your profits from your car. However, if you haven’t been in an accident, you’ll need to use your own judgement to decide if repair costs are reasonable.

If your car is older and will continue to need increasingly expensive and frequent maintenance repairs, it’s probably time to move on. Damages totaling half or more of your car’s value also aren’t worth it.

Your car performing poorly is also a big sign it may be time to find a new ride. While you may think it amounts to nothing more than frequent stops at the gas station, performance issues can be a sign of a failing motor that can cost you big time later on.

How Do I Sell My Junk Car?

How Do I Sell My Junk Car?

Selling junk cars is much easier than you may expect, as long as you know what to look for. Some junk yards may attempt to take advantage of the fact that most drivers don’t know the value of damaged cars, and probably want their clunkers gone quickly.

Before you shop for quotes, you should find an approximate value of your car and get yourself prepared to make your sale. There are also business practices you should look out for to ensure you’re working with a reputable scrap buyer.

The first thing you’ll need to do is prepare for sale. This means removing any personal items from your car and taking some photographs of it to provide information when you’re seeking quotes. You should also make sure you have your title available.

If your title is missing, don’t worry, you can order a copy from your local DMV and receive it within a week or two.

Now is also a good time to gather any mechanic records you have so you can accurately answer questions about your car’s damage. The more information you can provide, the more accurate your quote will be.

Next, you’ll want to find the value of your car. Before you hop onto Kelley Blue Book, remember your car isn’t driveable and the market price is representative of cars private buyers could purchase and drive.

Instead, find some auction sites for damaged cars. If possible, look for cars being sold in your region. Location can impact the value of scrap cars, as can the current market prices for the metals cars are made of. Search cars with your make and model with similar types of damage, as that will be your best predictor of how much you may be able to sell your car for.

When selling to a scrap yard, never work with businesses that offer to buy without a title or transfer your title later. Towing should always be included, and your quote should never change radically upon sale. You should also receive your payment up front before your car is towed away.
