Tips to Follow When Selling Your Car for Junk

If you are thinking about selling your car for junk then you should familiarize yourself with the process to get the most cash possible. This conversation is aimed at helping you get cash for junk cars in Seattle but the approach is the same for all jurisdictions.

Figuring Out What Your Junk Car is Worth

The first thing you should do prior to reaching out to any of the various junk car buyers is determining what your vehicle is actually worth. If the vehicle can be driven then that helps boost the value but even when it cannot be driven the car still has intrinsic value. What some junk car buyers do is purchase the car, repair it for resale while others try to sell the various components of the car for a profit. When you have figured out what the current fair market value (FMV) is of your junk car you can move on to the next step, just make sure you have the title for the car, no legitimate junk car buyer will deal with you if you don’t have the proper title.

Getting Top Dollar for Your Junk Car

After you have established what the current fair market value is of your junk car you need to discount that amount to allow some profit for the junk car buyer. If you are trying to get the full market value the buyer doesn’t make any money so they won’t buy the car.

Look for junk car buyers that will tow the vehicle as part of their service and that cost is factored into the price they are willing to pay you. Since most of these junk car buyers have their own fleet of tow trucks it costs them next to nothing to tow the vehicle but it saves you the hassle of having to arrange towing on your end.
