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

    Thinking about dropping off your car at a junkyard? Here are some tips so you don’t feel ripped off:

    #1 Do Your Research

    Don’t jump at that first quote. Tempe has a sea of junk car buyers, but not all are as transparent as SUYC. Different players, like salvage places, recyclers, and parts traders, might value your car in their own way. Ring around and see who’s digging deep for your ride.

    #2 Prepare Your Vehicle

    Before handing over the car to us, please take out all your stuff. There’s no need to clean or wash; we handle every junk car the same. You can also remove the license plate, but it’s entirely your choice.

    #3 Gather the Necessary Documentation

    To ensure everything’s on the up and up, please provide a title or bill of sale under your name and a valid ID when selling to us.

    #4 Be Honest About the Vehicle’s Issues

    Selling to us? For the sweetest deal, keep us posted on important parts and if they’re up to par. Any curveballs during our check can affect the final offer.

    Tempe, got an old car? Let SUYC take a look. We pride ourselves on giving honest deals. We see the diamond in the rough that others might miss.

    • We at SUYC can offer better because we see the value in every part of your vehicle.
    • Lots of buyers are just in for the resale. They pitch your info to heavyweights like SUYC. To make their dime, they’ll usually offer less than the pros.
    • SUYC keeps a daily tab on the market. Many resellers just use one price, no matter the ebb and flow of metal costs.
    • We honor your trust. Recognizing the worth of a few more dollars, we’re here for a just talk, opposite of those resellers who say no outright.
    • We’ve grown with this community and value its people. You’re not just another face to us, unlike what you might be to larger sellers.

    We push to make your journey with us seamless. Our tactics:

    • Quick quotes? They’re just a call or email away.

    How Much is My Junk Car Worth in Tempe?

    At the moment, the average junk car in Tempe is worth approximately $742. Many factors go into pricing out the value of a junk car. These include its condition, transportation, market value of metals, quality of parts, and demand for said parts. To see what your vehicle is worth, contact our team today and tell us what’s wrong with it.

    Can I Choose My Preferred Day & Time for Pick-Up?

    Absolutely! When you accept our offer, our dispatch team coordinates a day and time four our driver to show up and tow your old car away. There’s no charge for towing.

    How Fast Can I Get Paid?

    You get paid when our driver picks up your vehicle. If you call early enough in the day, we can often schedule a pickup same-day. Otherwise, we more often than not can get you in the next day. So you could get paid within a few hours, but almost certainly within 24.

    How Do I Sell Junk Car Without a Title?

    If you don’t have the title to your vehicle you can obtain a copy from the DMV. We may be able to buy your vehicle with a bill of sale and proper identification proving the vehicle is in your name.

    Do You Charge for Junk Car Removal?

    Not a penny. We remove your vehicle from your location free of charge. Furthermore, we don’t have any fees or hidden charges. We pay you!

    Do You Buy Expired Fleet Vehicles?

    Yes and we offer fair market prices for them. If you’re looking to liquidate your dying or deadwork trucks or vans, contact our team directly to discuss your vehicles.

    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!

    What Types of Vehicles Do You Buy in Tempe?

    If it drives or drove at one point there’s a good chance we’ll buy it. We look to buy all types of vehicles including pickup trucks, convertibles, hatchbacks, sport utility vehicles, retired buses and fleet vehicles, sedans, trucks, station wagons, and even large recreational vehicles. We’ll buy forklifts, semi-trucks, and flatbeds too.

    All that we ask is that you have the proper paperwork to prove ownership of your vehicle and will make you a fair and honest offer.

    Will You Buy Junk Cars in Tempe in Any Condition?

    SUYC buys any vehicle in any condition. This includes vehicles missing parts, such as engines, catalytic converters, transmissions, wheels, or have major mechanical issues.

    We buy vehicles that have been in floods, set on fire, damaged beyond repair, torn apart for scrap parts, totaled in a crash, or dealerships won’t take in trade. Remember, when nobody else wants to buy your vehicle, Sell Us Your Car will give you cash for it!

    About Tempe

    Maricopa County, Arizona

    Alright, let’s talk about Tempe. You’ve probably heard it gets super hot there, right? Well, that’s true, and that desert sun can give your car a hard time. Imagine baking in a 100-degree heat; your car feels it too. You’ve got to watch out for things like the car battery, your tire pressure, and make sure that engine doesn’t cook. If Tempe’s going to be home, regular pit stops for your ride are a must. Trust me, you don’t want your car giving up in the middle of a sizzling day.

    And speaking of the sun, folks in Tempe have a trick: window tinting. Arizona rules say window tints can let in about 33% of sunlight. Pro tip: throw on sun shades when you park. Keeps the inside from turning into an oven.

    Now, when summer rolls around, Tempe gets these wild storms called monsoons. From June to September, rain can pour down like crazy. Streets? They can get as slippery as a water slide. So, having good tires, wipers that work, and solid driving skills for rain? That’s the ticket.

    Thinking of getting your car legit in Arizona? Here’s the deal. You gotta have the car in your name. And if you’re bringing in a car from another state, you’ll need a quick check-up and insurance proof.

    Got an older car? If you’re in Maricopa County, where Tempe’s at, you might need to get it tested for emissions. Mainly, if it’s a gas one from after 1967 and not too heavy.

    Traffic jams? Yep, Tempe gets them too. It’s not New York-level crazy, but there are times when things get tight, especially during rush hour. The US 60? Oh boy, that one can be a beast.

    If you’re heading to Downtown Tempe, parking’s got a bit better over time. But when something big’s happening, like near Arizona State or Tempe Town Lake, you might have to circle a bit for a spot.

    Car buffs, Tempe’s got something for you too. While it’s not hosting giant car shows like Scottsdale next door, there’s this cool hangout called Cars and Coffee. If cars are your thing, you’ll fit right in.

    One more thing – electric cars are getting popular in Tempe. You’ll spot more places to charge them. And if you’ve got that special Arizona license plate for eco-friendly rides, those fast lanes on the highway? They’re all yours.

    So, while Tempe’s got some vibes similar to its big brother Phoenix, driving there’s got its own feel. Hope you’re geared up for the ride!
