5 Questions to Determine If You Should Junk Your Car

Is It Drivable?

If your car is not drivable, then there’s no point in keeping it. If you have been planning on fixing it for quite some time now, you may have to admit that you just are not going to get around to it. If it’s taking up space in the garage or your driveway, why not have it junked and walk away with cash in your pocket?

Do You Use It?

If your car is drivable but yet you never use it, then there’s not much sense in keeping it. If your car just sits in the driveway without any use, you might as well create some more room and put some cash in your pocket.

Is It Too Expensive to Repair?

If your car is too expensive to repair, or past the point of repairing, then it’s time to junk it. If the repairs cost more than your car is worth, or is more expensive than one year of a new car payment, it should be junked.

What Condition Is It In?

If your vehicle’s condition makes it unsafe on the road, you should junk it. Driving a car that is unsafe is a danger to yourself and to others.

Do You Really Need It?

If you don’t use your old vehicle much, or you were planning on buying a new one soon anyways, it’s time to part with it. Leaving a junk car in your garage or driveway is just taking up valuable space. You can have your car towed, and walk away with cash in your pocket to put towards your new car!

Are You Asking Your Mechanic the Right Questions?

Meeting with a mechanic can be a rushed and chaotic event. Most people enter a mechanic shop, hand over their keys, and rush out to get on with their busy lives. To get the most out of your mechanic shop visit, make sure you’re asking the right questions.

Will You Charge for an Estimate?

Before taking any steps, you should find out if the mechanic charges for an estimate and what the process is like. Most mechanic shops offer free estimates, but this isn’t something that should be assumed.

Are You Familiar with the Problem?

The mechanic should specialize in your type, make and model of car, as well as the vehicle problem. They should completely understand the problem with your car and how to fix it.

What Does the Warranty Cover?

When having a part replaced on your car, find out what your car’s warranty or guarantee covers. AAA-approved dealerships sometimes offer a standard 12-month or 12,000 mile warranty. The damage may also be covered by the original manufacturer warranty.

How Can I Make it Last Longer?

To get more from your investment in your car, ask your mechanic how to make certain parts last longer, such as the brakes, to prevent you from having to buy the same parts again in the near future.

Is it Worth it to Keep?

You may want to ask your mechanic if it’s worth it to keep your car and pay for the repairs, trade it in, or consider it junk. If the repair cost is more than the vehicle’s current value, then it’s time to let it go. If you decide that you vehicle is junk, call Boston Junk Car at (617) 719-6436 to have it towed away for free.

Top 5 Benefits of Junking Your Car

Free Up Space: What better way to free up space in your yard or garage than to get rid of your vehicle that no longer runs. Getting rid of an old car can free up space in your garage for more work space, tools, additional storage, or even a new car!

Reduce Expenses: Having an old, unusable vehicle can still be eating away at your expenses, especially if you still have insurance on the car. Older vehicles tend to waste more gas when they’re in use, and require more maintenance and repairs.

Worry-Free: Are you tired of the constant car troubles? Older cars are more likely to need repairs which means you need to visit the auto mechanic more often. By getting rid of your junk car, you can be worry and stress-free!
