4 Myths To Avoid When Selling Your Junk Car For Cash

Mílton Da Cruz

Selling your junk car can be a great way to get some extra cash, but there are a few myths that you need to be aware of before you look for a buyer. Take a look at the facts to debunk four of the most common myths about selling your junk car for cash. 

Myth #1: You can only sell your junk car to a junkyard

This myth is simply not true but many people are unaware that there are companies that buy junk cars for cash. Many companies will buy your junk car (even if it is not running or in good condition) for parts or sell it as scrap metal. Some buyers are also not affiliated with a company and work one-on-one with a seller to purchase junk vehicles to fix and resell.

Myth #2: You won't get much money for your junk car

You can get a decent amount of money for your junk car, even if it is in poor condition. The amount of money you get will depend on the make, model, and condition of your car, as well as the current market value of scrap metal with some buyers. While the vehicle may no longer be running, many of the parts and components can be valuable to junk car buyers. 

Myth #3: You need to have the title to your car to sell the year

This is not always the case. Some companies will buy your car even if you do not have the title. However, you will likely get less money for your car if you do not have the title, and you will still need to supply proof of ownership. Therefore, it is best to have the title of your car ready to show the buyer.

Myth #4: You need to pay to have your car towed to a junkyard

Some companies will come to you and pick up your car for free. This is a great option if you do not have the time or money to tow your car to a junkyard yourself. Get your car ready to sell by cleaning it up and removing any personal belongings before the junk car buyer arrives. 

Selling your junk car for cash may put some much-needed money in your pocket. Just be sure to avoid the above myths and take the time to find the right buyer to get the best possible price for your car.
