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

    The last thing we want is for customers to feel like they got the short end of the stick when selling junk cars, regardless of who they sell it to. So, if you’re planning of getting rid of your used or junk car in Surpring, take a moment to read over these tips:

    #1 Do Your Research

    Something you won’t hear many other cash for cars dealers in Surprise tell you is to go and shop around! This area is full of junk car buyers, including direct buyers like SUYC, indirect buyers, and used car dealerships. The latter is known for lowballing customers on trade-ins and passing on junk cars entirely. The indirect buyers are either middlemen who generate leads or resellers of said leads. If you’re wondering who buys these leads, its us! Unlike the others, we buy cars directly from sellers like you. We part out the components that still have value and we ship the metals directly to the smelters. All this means dealing with direct buyers puts more cash in your pocket.

    #2 Prepare Your Vehicle

    Before our driver shows up to buy your car and tow it away, be sure to remove your personal items, paperwork, and any coins you’ve recently collected. When selling your car to SUYC, you don’t have to wash or clean it.

    #3 Gather the Necessary Documentation

    We have to verify that you are the rightful owner of the vehicle and in doing so, you are required to have a valid ID and proof of ownership – title or bill of sale. We can’t buy your car without this.

    #4 Be Honest About the Vehicle’s Issues

    Be sure to let our team know all the known issues with your car, regardles if it’s a clunker or not, and to answer our questions as accurately as possible. The last thing anyone wants is to find that the vehicle is not as described, leading to a lower offer or us passing on the purchase altogether.

    Sell Us Your Car Company Logo About Sell Us Your Car

    As one of the largest buyers of used automobiles and junk cars in Surprise, it’s important to us that Sell Us Your Car is a trusted name in the business. We work hard for our reputation by providing fair and honest quotes on cars folks are selling. We’re able to make the biggest offers because we are able to earn more from your junker once we’ve bought it. Below we’ve listed a few of the ways your car is worth more to us.

    • We dismantle your car and sell the reusable parts – engines, transmissions, and catalytic converters, to name a few.
    • We buy direct from you, whereas many of our competitors are merely resellers of your personal information. By buying directly from car sellers, we avoid having to pay any middlemen.
    • We check market values of metals daily and adjust our quotes accordingly. This separates us from a lot of cash-for-cars buyers who use web-based, algorithmic calculators.
    • We won’t lose a sale negotiating over a few dollars difference. We appreciate your business and we know how far a couple extra bucks can go during hard times.
    • Another thing we’d like to point out is that we’re a local company with a vested interest in our community. We value you and your business and strive to make you feel welcome. We hate to say it, but many companies, especially those who operate from coast-to-coast, simply see you as another number.

    Paying you as much as possible isn’t all we’re good for! We also want to make the car-selling process as streamlined as possible. Here are some ways we do this:

    1. Get an instant quote by phone or email during normal business hours.
    2. We’ll work around your schedule when it comes to picking up your car.
    3. We pay cash for junk cars. You don’t have to worry about a check being good or wait for it to clear.
    4. No charge for towing. We arrive and pay you when we pick-up your car, not the other way around!
    5. There’s no need for you to worry about the paperwork. We handle everything, including filing a transfer-of-title with ADOT.

    These things, plus a whole lot more, are what makes working with Sell Us Your Car a better experience. But we’re serious when we suggest you call around to get multiple quotes. We’re very confident in our offers and, believe it or not, most people call back!

    Keep in mind that we buy vehicles in any condition, this includes cars that have been in an accident, missing components, broken windows, flat tires, and that won’t start. We also buy just about anything on wheels, including roadsters, sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks, fleet vehicles, semis, RVs, quads, and just about anything you can think of!

    Surprise Junk Car

    About Surprise

    Maricopa County, Arizona

    Surprise, like much of central Arizona, is one hot destination from June through August with temps soaring well into the 110s. This heat isn’t friendly to anyone or anything, including your car. Rubber seals will dry out, batteries will drain, treads will fall off tires, air conditioners are pushed to their limits, and belts will certainly break. Even when cars are properly maintained, summer breakdowns are common. Regular maintenance is your best bet; however, if you own an older car, you may want to prepare for the inevitable!

    It’s not just your car’s parts and mechanical components that are impacted by the Surprise sun. The interior of the car can quickly turn into an oven and reach temperatures of up to 180 degrees. It’s dangerous for children and pets to be left in a vehicle anytime the sun is high in the sky. One way drivers try to keep their interiors cool is with sunshades any tinted windows. The state law permits driver and passenger windows to be 33% darkness and 35% for the rest of the windows. In case you’re wondering, you’re not allowed to tint the front windscreen.

    Surprise residents who’ve lived in the area for a while have undoubtedly experienced our monsoon weather. During summer months, monsoons bring in thunder and dust storms, rain, and occasionally, hail large enough to cause significant body damage. When rains are severe enough, they can significantly reduce visibility. Similarly, dust storms, aka haboobs, are very dangerous to drive through with accidents aplenty.

    Buying and selling a car in Surprise is fairly straightforward. Newly purchased cars must carry insurance and be registered with ADOT. If you’re car is out-of-state, you may be required to have a Level I inspection performed. Selling your car involves a transfer-of-title form to be completed, also with the Department of Transportation.

    Because Surprise is in Maricopa County, if you have a vehicle registered in the city, you’ll be required to have it emission tested every two years once it becomes five years old. Pima County is the only other in Arizona that requires residents to emission test their vehicles.

    Surprise is situations further north and further west than its neighbor, Peoria. Traffic isn’t quite as bad in this Phoenix suburb, but those who have to commute to other parts of the Valley will likely face plenty of other drivers during rush hour. Interstate 60 cuts right through Surprise, as does the Loop 303. These throughways connect to other freeways, making traveling around town a breeze.

    There are 150,000 people who call Surprise home, which means there are all sorts of car clubs and meetup events to attend. Not to mention, dozens more that take place in neighboring Phoenix, Mesa, and Scottsdale. If you’re looking for some automotive-themed fun, check out Time Machines Car Club, AZ Car Meets, and The Grand Car Club.

    Driving through Surprise, on any given day, and you’re certain to cross paths with plenty of hybrid and EV cars. The city helps to cater to electric vehicle owners by offering 40 public charging stations, nearly half of which are completely free! Alternative fuel, hybrid and EVs have access to the carpool lane on Valley freeways.
