    4 Tips for Selling a Used Car in Peoria to a Scrapyard

    Don’t sell your car to us or anyone else in Peoria before taking a moment to read over our tips. We want to make sure you walk away from the transaction feeling good about it and here are a few ways to ensure this happens:

    #1 Do Your Research

    Be sure to call around and get multiple quotes from local junk car buyers. Here in Peoria, you’ll find used car dealerships, direct from consumer buyers (like Sell Us Your Car), and indirect buyers who are either lead generating companies or middle men – both of whom wind up selling junk cars and leads to us! Dealerships are known to lowball sellers or pass on junk cars altogether. SUYC buys directly from you, we resale the usable parts, and we ship the metal directly to smelters in Mexico. In other words, we can offer you more money, because we don’t have to pay commissions!

    #2 Prepare Your Vehicle

    To prepare your car to be purchased from Sell Us Your Car, all you have to do is grab the coins, your personal items, and paperwork from the glovebox. You do not have to wash the vehicle or clean the interior.

    #3 Gather the Necessary Documentation

    For documentation you need to have a valid ID and title or proof of ownership, like bill of sale. This is required by Arizona state law and without it we cannot purchase your car.

    #4 Be Honest About the Vehicle’s Issues

    Don’t mislead our junk car buying team about the condition of your used car or clunker. If we’re led to believe that specific parts are original and that the car is in better working order than it is, we won’t be able pay what you were quoted. While this rarely happens, we encourage you to be honest to avoid any disappointment.

    Sell Us Your Car Company Logo About Sell Us Your Car

    At Sell Us Your Car we want our cash for cars customers to know that we strive to make fair and honest offers and, whenever we can, provide a higher quote than the other guys. Many tend to wonder how we’re able to make, what we believe to be, the highest offers on used cars in Peoria and the answer is no secret. The truth is because we are able to make more money on junk cars than nine out of 10 of our competitors. Here’s how:

    • We see more value in your car than others do as we’re able to part out good components and sell what’s left straight to the refinery.
    • Most of our competitors in Peoria are nothing more than resellers of your personal information. Alternatively, we buy direct from you, which means we don’t have any middlemen to pay off.
    • We check current market prices of metals and we base our offers on how metal your car has. Unlike many others who use an algorithm to make a tentative offer that can change at any time.
    • We value you and your business and we won’t lose a deal haggling over a few dollars. We understand times are tough and we want to help the best we can.
    • Lastly, we’re a local business vested in the betterment of the community. We treat you as a valued customer and potential referal for future car deals. The other guys often see you as another number.

    One thing we believe that sets us apart is our desire to make the entire sale as seemless as possible. We do this in a number of ways, including:

    1. We provide instant quotes – phone or email – during normal hours.
    2. We work with your schedule to set a time to pickup / buy your car. We can often do it within 24 hours and, sometimes, same-day.
    3. We pay in cash at the time of pickup. No having to wait for a check to clear or trust that it will!
    4. There’s no fee for towing. It’s unfortunate we have to point this out, but some companies like to play games.
    5. One thing you can rest assured of when working with SUYC is that you don’t have to worry about the paperwork involved in transferring a title with ADOT. We do it for you.

    These are the things that set us aside in the used automotive and junk car buying business in Peoria. But don’t take our word for it, please! Go ahead and call around, see how much you can get from other cash-for-cars operations. If you can find a better offer take it! Otherwise, we can’t wait to hear back from you.

    Whether you have a car, pickup, SUV, minivan, coupe, sports car, classic, or just about any ol’ wagon, we want to buy it. We don’t care if it runs or not, whether it’s missing components, or if it’s been in a wreck. Simply click or call to get a free online estimate.

    Do You Purchase Fleet Vehicles That are Decommissioned?

    We absolutely purchase end-of-life vehicles for fair market prices. Partnering with SUYC ensures a stress-free transaction – we handle removal and disposal.

    How Is a Junk Car Different from a Pre-Owned Vehicle?

    Junk cars are vehicles that are deemed as not good enough to be insured and road-driven. This usually means the car is in disrepair, faces serious mechanical repairs, and has reached its end-of-life.

    Used cars are perfectly good running vehicles that dealerships will take in trade or that will quickly sell to a private buyer. They don’t have any major issues or required cosmetic repairs.

    Everything from daily drivers to heavy construction equipment. We want SUVs, pickups, vans, wagons, and even supercars! Construction equipment, including backhoes, excavators, forklifts, loaders, and everything in between is welcome. We’ve been known to buy farm equipment too, such as tractors, plows, and cultivators. We buy all sorts of trucks and haulers you can think of too – semi-trucks, flatbeds, tankers, livestock trucks, box trucks, dump trucks, garbage trucks, and utility trucks.

    Can I Sell Non-Running Cars in Phoenix to You, No Matter Their Shape?

    We buy vehicles in any condition – missing parts, water- or fire-damaged, totaled in a crash, or in major disrepair. A lot of our customers have junk cars that are hard to sell, but SUYC will make an honest, fair market offer, for yours.

    Can I Sell My Car that Has a Lien in Peoria?

    You can’t sell your car in Peoria if you don’t own the title free and clear and if you have a lien on it you do not own legally own your car. We do not buy cars with liens.

    About Peoria

    County, Arizona

    If you’ve ever visiting central Arizona in July, you pretty much understand how hot it gets in Peoria. Located northwest of Phoenix, nearly 200,000 people call Peoria home. With this many residents, broken down cars, especially during summer months, are prevalent. When the temperatures soar into the 110s and above, a lot of cars and trucks, namely older ones, have a hard time keeping up. We often see coolant failures, belts breaking, batteries draining, and tires lose their treads. All of these lead to costly repairs and, for some, missing or being late for work. If you can afford regular tune-ups, you should. Future you will thank you!

    Another way the Arizona sun puts a damper on daily driving is the way it turns your car into an oven as it bakes below. As a kid, when cars made everything out of steel, including seat belt buckles, third-degree burns were commonplace. Nowadays, drivers have tinted windows, sun shades, and a lot-less-painful-to-the-touch belt buckles! If tinting your windows in Arizona, know that you have have 33 percent light transmission darkness on the front and 35 on the other windows.

    Summer months are also stormy months in Peoria thanks to annual monsoon storms. Monsoon season means heavy rains, dust storms, and strong winds. Winds, as you know, cause tree and limbs to fall and can pickup yard furniture and trampolines – all of which can lead to vehicle body damage and broken windows. When it comes to accidents caused by poor visibility, it’ll often rain so hard and the dust will become so thick that you can’t see more than one or two car lengths in front of you.

    Arizona Department of Transportation is where vehicles are registered and transfering the title is done. If you moved to Arizona from another state, you’ll have to have a Level I inspection performed with proof of registration/title. Motorists are required to carry $25,000 for one person ($50,000 for two) sustaining injury or death and $15,000 for damage to others’ property.

    Peoria is situated in Maricopa County, which means emission testing is mandatory every two years for cars five years of age and older. Pima County, where the city of Tucson is, is the only other county in Arizona that requires emissions to be tested biannually.

    If you live in Peoria, you know traffic, particularly well during rush hours. There are several freeways cutting through the city, including the US-60, Loop 303, Loop 101, and AZ-74, all of which help alleviate morning and evening traffic for those who commute.

    As a large city, adjacent to many other very large cities, you’ll find Peoria to be home to many different automotive-themed events, clubs, and meetups. Some notable organizations include the Vistancia Car Club, OBG Classic Car Club, and Peoria Cars and Coffee. As noted, Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Mesa are a short distance away where many of the world’s most notable automotive auctions and conventions happen.

    When it comes to electric vehicles (EVs), Peoria’s streets are seeing more and more as the market grows and manufacturers shift their line-ups. If you own an EV or hybrid car, you’ll be glad to know there are more than 50 charging stations (a third of these offer free charges!).
