What’s the Value of My Junk Car?
Do you have a junk car on your hands? If you want to sell your junk car or truck, you’re probably wondering how much it’s worth. After all, it’s not exactly worth selling your old junk car if you’re only going to get a few pennies out of it.
Fortunately, it’s actually possible to get at least a rough idea of what your junk car is worth before you part ways with it. Here are some of the things that just about any junk yard is going to take into account when it comes to pricing out your junk car.
The Condition of Your Junk Car
First off, any junk yard you call is going to ask you about the condition of your vehicle. Is it in pretty good shape, but just in need of some repairs that you don’t have the cash for right now? Or, is it an old pile of rust that hasn’t been moved in decades?
Depending on the condition of your vehicle, a junk yard will offer you more or less cash for your junk car or truck. A car that’s in particularly good condition can be sold at an auto auction, in which case you may get a surprisingly large amount of cash for it. A car in reasonable condition may have valuable parts that can be salvaged from it before it’s turned into scrap metal. And, a vehicle that’s decades old and more rust than anything else is likely only good for scrap.
Your Junk car’s Year, Make, and Model
Next up, a junk yard is going to want to know the year, make, and model of your junk car. There are a couple of reasons for this.
First, if your vehicle is in particularly good shape, they’ll want to know its age, make, and model so that they can determine what it might sell for at an auto auction.
Second, know the make and model of your junk car is helpful in terms of calculating the potential value of any parts that it contains. Different vehicles have different parts, and the value of those parts on the second hand market can vary significantly.
Lastly, even if your vehicle is only good for scrap, it’s still important to know what year, make, and model it is. This is due to the fact that the junk car buyer will need to know how much your junk car weighs, and they can calculate this once they know exactly what type of car it is.
Who Are You Selling To?
So far, we’ve assumed that you’re looking to sell your junk car to a local junk yard.
If you opt to try to sell your junk car to a private party buyer using an online classified website, you may be able to get slightly more cash for your vehicle. However, it’s important to keep in mind that going this route can be super time consuming. It’s not always worth the hassle just to make an extra couple of bucks. And, you may not be able to find a private buyer in the first place.
