Which Junkyards Pay the Most for Junk Cars?


Junk Car Cash

If you’re looking to sell your junk car, there are a few different option available to you. You could call around to some dealerships in your area and see if they’re interested, although this is rarely a good use of your time. You could also try selling your junk car using an online classified website. Of course, most private buyer won’t be interested in your vehicle due to its condition.


In the end, most junk car owners end up working with a junkyard in order to sell their junk car. If you’re facing this prospect, you might be unsure about how to proceed. After all, aren’t junkyards known for being less than trustworthy? How can you be sure which junkyard is going to pay the most for your junk car, versus which ones are best avoided?


There are a few different ways to determine which junkyard will pay the most for your junk car. Let’s take a look at your options.


Run a Google Search


First off, consider running a Google search for local junkyards. Once you have the results available, it’s helpful to evaluate each company individually. Search for that specific company’s name, and see what sort of search results you get. Do they have an official website? Does their company have a legitimate internet presence, with plenty of associated search results? If so, they’re likely to pay you a more reasonable price for your junk car.


Scope Out Their Website


Next up, click through to the junkyard’s website. It goes without saying, but just to be clear: if a scrap yard doesn’t have a website, there’s a pretty good chance that they’re not going to pay a decent price for your junk car. In 2018, businesses without websites are rarely reliable or professional. Once you land on a company’s website, take a look around. Is it legit? Does it look like they’ve been in business for some time? Are there photos of the business, or of the people working there?


Take a Look at Reviews


Any reliable junkyard is going to have reviews available online. Some reviews will likely pop up when you run a Google search for the business: Google reviews, Yelp, and Facebook can all provide a snapshot of what a company’s customers have to say. Many junkyards will also feature reviews on their website, although keep in mind that these may be biased and handpicked by the company.


Be sure to actually read a few reviews rather than simply scanning them for star ratings. Were customers happy with the price they received? Has anyone mentioned that they got a particularly good price for their junk car? If so, it’s more likely that the same junkyard will offer you a fair price for your junk car.
