Just like everything in life, cars get old with time. Maybe you want to sell your scrap car and looking for buyers who can give you the best possible value for it. Even sometimes, cars get wrecked. The question is what should you do when these events occur? The go-to option for most people is to let the vehicle rot in the backyard/garage without giving it much time. After all, what good is a banged-up car right? Well, you might want to think again because that old rusty, junk, used car you think has no value can fetch you serious money if you know what to do and where to go.
In this blog, we have shared the best way to sell your scrap car. We are going to point you in the right direction- knowing what to do, and where to go. If the question of where and how to sell your car for money is on your mind, this is the right place to get the information you need about the question.
Find the best possible ways to sell your scrap car
Here we show you the best possible ways to sell your scrap car and get money from it following underneath,
- Sell your car in the same condition as-is
- Sell your car to a dealership
- Sell your cars in parts
- Sell your car for scrap
Sell your car in the same condition as-is
The first option you want to consider is to sell your car in the same condition as it is. Even if it is wrecked, scratched, or old, there is always someone willing to buy the car in any condition as it is. All you have to do is find people willing to buy and you can do that by advertising. Using social media like Facebook, you can contact potential buyers of scarp cars. You can use online platforms like Crazy Car Corner to sell your car.
If you want to go with this, know that people will want to lowball your offer. So make your research the price of your car model as scrap so you are well aware of the prices to consider. Don’t be afraid to negotiate, and even if you will compromise, make sure it is not more money below the market price you researched.
Sell your car to a dealership
If you don’t want to go through the route of selling your car as it is through Facebook or online platforms you can sell your car in a dealership. The best way to go about this option is to sell to dealers of the same make as your car. If you use a Camry or a Subaru, it is best to sell to a Toyota dealership. In this way, you will get the best deal on your scrap car. Some dealerships will suggest you trade in your scrap car for a new one by adding some money to the car. If that is what you want, you can go for it. In the end, you are using your scrap car to get money, and that is what matters a lot.
Note that of all the options, selling your car to dealerships sometimes leaves you with the short end of the sick. They give pretty simple offers especially if your car is in bad condition (wrecked, scratched, missing some parts). To get better offers with this option, your vehicle needs to be in good condition, less than ten years old, and at least, less than 100,000 miles.
Sell your car in Parts
Another way to sell scrap cars is to sell your car in parts. This option is best for non-running/ dead cars and wrecked cars. It might be difficult to sell these cars as they are or to dealerships, but you can still get value on the scrap car by selling the parts of it.
To get an optimal value on the car, check for valuable in-demand car parts and put them up for sale online. Most in-demand car parts include Windshield wipers, oil and oil filters, air filters, brake pads, sparkplugs, fuel pumps, water pumps, alternators, mufflers, and engine sensors. Expensive parts that will make you a lot of money include GPS systems, fenders, airbags, bumpers, catalytic converters, wheels, tires, and rims.
Sell your car for scrap
The last and final way to sell your scrap car is to sell to a reputable scrap car buyer in your locale. It is the best option among all because it is easy and gives higher returns. All other options require some upfront cost and effort which can be expensive and stressful for you. For example, if you decide to sell the car as it is, you will have to put some effort and probably money into advertising. If that option works for you then it’s all right. However, reliable scrap car buyers like Crazy Car Corner eliminate all the stress that comes with the other options and even pay you a higher price for your old, damaged, second-hand, or junk car.
