Selling Your Junk Vehicle
Over 15 million vehicles in the U.S. reach their end-of-life each year. At this stage, most owners consider these cars useless or outdated, specifically in terms of functionality and appearance. In some cases, the car may also have significant damages beyond repair. While not all, owners often leave these cars to rot in their garage, or worse, in a public parking area.
Do I Junk It or Repair It?
Little do people know that these vehicles, commonly called junk cars, may still be usable after repair. However, if the repair cost is higher than the car’s original or resale value, selling it could be the best option. In addition, selling junk cars helps owners avoid fines, free up space in the garage, avoid health risks, and become environmentally responsible.
Whatever the reason, most owners want to get the most money out of selling a junk car. However, we understand that the car selling process can get confusing. In this article, we are giving you a detailed guide on how to sell a junk car.
Requirements for Selling Your Vehicle
Do You Have a Junker?
Before buying your vehicle, Sell Us Your Car will examine it to determine whether it qualifies as a junk car. A vehicle usually qualifies as “junk” when it is severely damaged, has damaged interior or exterior, has a failed engine, transmission, or other major component.
Another reason a car may be junked is if it fails to pass emission’s inspection numerous times. Secondly, if a car’s value is less than $500, it may be considered scrap. Cars parked in an unauthorized place for a long time must also be removed, as these cars may already have mechanical problems.
Do You Have the Title & Registration?
Depending on the state, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may have different documentary requirements to sell a car. The most important document is the car title since it proves legal ownership of a vehicle. It contains the owner’s complete name, address, and vehicle identification number (VIN).
We do not require the VIN here at Sell Us Your Car, but this information is useful for accurately estimating the value of your vehicle.
If you can’t find your title but still have the registration papers, you can present them to us instead, as it should contain the car owner’s name. If you have neither of these requirements, we can also help you find other workarounds. For example, our junk cars yard team can assist you in requesting the reissue of said documents from the DMV.
After securing the necessary documents, Sell Us Your Car will follow up with an assessment to ensure the vehicle is legally yours, has no record of lien against it, and can be legally purchased.
Vehicle Value Assessments & Offers
Make, Model & Year
In general, the car’s year, make, and model determines the demand for its parts. However, as more car parts are becoming more plastic than metal each year, newer car parts may be less valuable, while older car parts may either be worthless or prized. To determine the value of your junk car, contact us today to get an accurate appraisal.
Overall Vehicle Condition
Normally, a clean and damage-free car has a higher value than its rusty and clunky counterparts. But even if your car looks like junk on the outside, as long as the scrap metals and major components are in good condition, you still have a high chance of earning good money.
After finalizing the value of your car, we will send you a quote within a few hours, often as quick as 10 minutes.
This time frame includes a screening phone call, where we will discuss whether your car qualifies as junk and if you possess any necessary requirements. However, the quote becomes invalid after 48 hours since the market changes quickly. Cash and cars go hand-and-hand at SUYC, so give us a call today!
