4 Tips for Selling a Used Car in Phoenix to a Scrapyard
To ensure you have a good experience and conduct a transaction you’re comfortable with, here are a few considerations for when selling an unwanted vehicle to a junkyard:
#1 Do Your Research
Before accepting the first offer you receive, research multiple junk car buyers in your area. There are many different buyers of junk cars in Phoenix, but not all companies offer the same transparent dealings that SUYC does. Not all companies operate with the same objective either. For example, there are salvage yards, recycling centers, and used parts buyers all who may view your vehicle and its value differently. So, call around and see for yourself who’s willing to pay you the most!
#2 Prepare Your Vehicle
Take your personal belongings out of the vehicle. You don’t need to wash the car or clean the interior if you’re selling a junk car. The vehicle is processed the same either way. You can also remove the license plate; however, it’s not necessary.
#3 Gather the Necessary Documentation
In order to prove the vehicle is yours, you’ll have to provide a title or bill of sale in your name and a valid identification card.
#4 Be Honest About the Vehicle’s Issues
In order for a used car buyer or junk car service provider to make the best offer possible, it’s important that they know certain parts exist and are in proper working order. If you withhold this information, are provided an offer, then we discover that certain aspects of your vehicle are not as described, you’ll likely get a lower offer upon pickup inspection.
About Sell Us Your Car
Sell Us Your Car (SUYC) is a leading buyer of used vehicles in Phoenix and we want to make a fair and honest offer to unload your unwanted vehicle. The truth is that your clunker is worth more to some Phoenix junk vehicle buyers than it is to others. And guess what? It’s worth more to SUYC and for good reason. Here’s why:
- SUYC pays more because we part the vehicle out – meaning we can make more on the purchase.
- Other buyers are nothing more than resellers. In other words, they take your info and sell it to the highest bidder – companies like SUYC. So in order for these lead generation companies and in return buyers like SUYC to make money, the resellers have to offer less than professional scrap car buyers.
- SUYC also assesses market conditions on a daily basis, whereas resellers have a fixed algorithm that offers the same amount regardless of whether metals and other elements have gone up or down in value.
- We value your business and know what a few extra dollars means to many of our customers. We won’t lose a purchase over a fair counter offer by a customer. Unlike resellers who outright refuse to negotiate.
- Finally, we’re local and, believe it or not, we care about our community and want to help its members strive. This commitment isn’t as appreciated by large resellers as they operate across the country. To them you’re just another number on their monthly reports. To us, you’re potentially a return customer, a source for referrals, and a voice to others who may be considering our service. That’s also to say, you’re a valued customer, we know it, and we appreciate it!
We also strive to make the entire process as easy and stress-free as possible for our customers. We accomplish this by:
- Providing instant quotes over the phone or via email.
- Scheduling pick-ups as soon as we can fit you in – often same-day or next-day.
- We pay cash-in-hand. No need to wait for a check to clear (or trust that the check is good for that matter!).
- We tow vehicles free of charge. Surprisingly, many of our larger competitors charge for this service.
- Additionally, we handle all the paperwork. All you have to do is make sure your personal belongings are out of the vehicle and that’s it. We file the necessary transfer-of-title paperwork with ADOT and, at which point, you’re in the clear and no longer have to worry about your vehicle.
This is essentially the SUYC difference. But we’ll go one step further and encourage you to call around to get multiple purchase quotes for your vehicle. We’re so confident in our ability to price out our competitors, we don’t mind when customers call back to accept our offer! Remember, regardless of whether you’re trying to get rid of an abandoned car, a vehicle that’s been in an accident, or a car that’s in disrepair, SUYC want’ to buy it, give its parts new life, and recycle what’s left to transform it into a new model.
Our scrapyards process over 200 vehicles every week and our vehicle compactor is always hungry for more! Ask about our junk cars pick up service.

What is the Difference Between a Junk Car & Used Car?
A junk car can be a lot of things, but typically a vehicle that costs more to repair than it’s worth is a junker. Crashed cars, cars missing parts, a car that won’t run all fall under the umbrella of junk cars. Furthermore, if your vehicle doesn’t have resale value, it’s likely a junk car.
Used cars on the other hand do have resale value and are often in good driving condition. Used cars can have minor body or mechanical issues and still have worth, especially if any issues are addressed. SUYC buys used cars and makes fair market offers for them. Reach out for a quote!

Automakers & Brands We Purchase
What can we say about Phoenix other than it’s hot. The intense 100 degree summer heat can impact your vehicle in a number of different ways. Vehicle maintenance, your car’s battery life, its tire pressure, and the engine’s cooling system are just a few of the many ways the summer heat in central Arizona can cause havoc on your car. It’s recommended that if you’re going to live in the Valley of the Sun you have regular maintenance checks to ensure nothing goes wrong and you’re not left stranded in the heat during the hottest months of the year.
To get by, you may want to get those windows tinted. Most residents in Phoenix tend to have their car windows tinted. The state law allows for 33% light transmission on the film and it is advised that you use sun shades when parking your car under the sun to help reflect some of the heat back out of the car.
When it comes to monsoon season, which takes place typically between June and September each year, the storms can turn the roads into a muddy slippery mess. It’s recommended that you have appropriate tires with good tread, working windshield wiper blades, and that you take time to learn how to drive in these conditions.
Vehicle registration, which we touched on a little bit earlier, means that when you register a car in Arizona it must be done so in the owner’s name. To register an out-of-state car in Arizona you’ll need to acquire what’s known as a level one inspection and you’ll have to have auto insurance for the vehicle in the state.
While many counties in Arizona don’t require vehicle emission testing, Maricopa County and Phoenix do require it. vehicles made after 1967 that are gas powered and weigh less than 8,500 lbs, have to be emission tested every other year.
Phoenix, like many other major metropolises across the country, has its fair share of traffic issues. Just like in Los Angeles, Houston, or Miami a large city like Phoenix deals with heavy rush hour bumper to bumper traffic. If you can, it’s recommended that you plan to drive around the city during times that are not considered rush hour. Both interstates I-10 and I-17 tend to be the busiest, while local freeways that include the loop 202 and the Loop 101 also have their fair share of traffic.
Parking in Downtown Phoenix has gotten considerably better in recent years. However it’s still Limited and though there are several more garages and lots to choose from, especially during special events and sporting events, you may still find it difficult to find a parking place.
Car culture thrives in the city of Phoenix. There are regularly hosted events, and annual events that drive a number of enthusiasts from all over the state and this side of the country. You’ll find major auctions take place here as well, such as Scottsdale’s auction week where Good Guys rod and Customs Association shows and Cars and Coffee cater to.
Phoenix, like many other major cities around the globe, is seeing its fair share of rise in EV vehicles. This also means that there are more and more electric vehicle charging stations showing up along major thorough ways. If you have an Arizona alternative fuel vehicle license plate qualified for PHEVs and EVs, you can drive in the highly coveted carpool lanes on our city freeways.
