How to Get the Most Cash for My Junk Car
Are you ready to sell your junk car to a local junk yard in Baltimore Md? You’re tired of dealing with the constant repairs, the mounting bills, on and on. We get it. Plus, who wants to keep a vehicle that refuses to start half the time? Wouldn’t it be nice to part ways with your junk car once and for all, and drive something that’s actually reliable instead?
Five years ago or more, you could sell your junk car for a pretty penny. The price of scrap metal was high, and getting hundreds and hundreds of dollars for even a small, lightweight vehicle was easy. Now, though, things have changed.
The issue isn’t that junk yards want to pay you less for your vehicle. At Junk A Car, we want to give you as much cash for your junk car as possible. The problem is the international scrap metal market: when scrap prices are low, it’s impossible to pay huge amounts of cash for a junk car.
That said, prices are on their way back up. So, if you want to learn more about how scrap metal prices affect the value of your junk car — and how you can get the most cash for your junk car in your local area — keep reading to learn more.
The Crash of the Scrap Metal Market
As we mentioned, it was easy to get a boatload of cash for your clunker a few years back. In fact, as recently as 2014 we saw record high scrap metal prices. Scrap steel sold for over $400 per ton that year, which meant that even compact, lightweight cars could sell for a good junk of cash.
But by the middle of 2014, scrap prices had crashed. They eventually bottomed out around $50 per ton. As a result, scrap yards were no longer able to pay major amounts of cash for junk cars.
Fortunately, the price of scrap metal has slowly been climbing again the past few years. The industry continues to show signs of recovery, which means that now is a great time to sell your junk car. Whereas in 2015 you would’ve gotten pennies for your junk car, 2018 is considerably more promising.
If you’re ready to sell your junk car, here’s what you need to do to ensure that you get as much cash as possible for it.
Getting Top Dollar for Your Junk Car
First, be sure that you have your junk car’s title on hand. Without the title, you won’t be able to sell it. There are special circumstances where a junk yard can offer you cash for your junk car without a title, but they’re few and far between.
Next, it’s important to compare prices. Be sure that you’re not getting ripped off. Don’t take less than your junk car is worth.
In fact, the best way to ensure that you get the maximum amount of cash for your junk car is to work with a national company. You want a junk car buyer that has a solid reputation for paying the most for junk cars. Junk A Car is prepared to pay you max cash for your junk car today. Visit our website to get started!
