What Is Your Scrap Car’s Value?

If your car is not performing like it used to, not as reliable or good-looking anymore, maybe it’s time to get rid of it. But don’t rush into making a quick decision and closing a fast buy. No matter the condition of your scrap car, truck, SUV or van, you need to clearly understand its value to get the best price. Here are the factors you should be considering:

 

Driveable vs Non-Drivable Car

Clearly, a driveable car is worth more than a completely broken down one. Usually, other scrap car salvage companies will also charge for towing of a non-drivable car, but not us – Boston Junk Car will tow your car in any condition absolutely for free!

 

Time Sensitivity

For some junk cars, seasonality can affect the cost. For example, scrap 4X4 and SUV cars rise in price during the colder months or when the weather is bad. There’s another variable for large cars: you can get more money for a junk car when gas prices go down. Evidently, convertibles have higher value during spring and summer months. Keep in mind that no matter how New England weather treats your car, you can always drive up or down the coast where you might get a better deal. At the same time, clearly, time devalues your car every day, especially if it’s not in a driving condition. Different parts of the car are more likely to deteriorate when the junk car isn’t in use. So it is a time-sensitive issue!

 

Auto Salvage vs Scrap Metal

ARS Car Towing & Boston Junk Car will give you more cash for your junk car than any scrap metal service. In addition, we don’t just tow and compress the scrap metal carcass of your car, we dispose of all the other materials and fluids in an ecologically-friendly way! If you still have parts in your car that are functional, you will receive more cash for them. The alternator, starter motor, new tires, and your onboard GPS system are all worth something.

How to Sell Your Junk Car Fast

Did you know, nowadays your car’s value depreciates twice as faster than 5 years ago? The market is booming with brand new cars, which is why it becomes so much harder to sell an old vehicle at a price you want. And the longer you wait, the harder it gets to get rid of your junk car fast. ARS Towing & Boston Junk Car Removal knows the trick in getting you the best value-cash deal for your scrap car as soon as the following business day!

 

Get Everything Ready

Occasionally, you can try to increase the value of your scrap car, by getting it cleaned, waxed and vacuumed. If the car is drivable, take it to the mechanic and have it inspected – this way you’ll know for sure what works and what doesn’t, and you’ll have a clearer understanding of how much cash you can expect for it. Most importantly, prepare the documents – title, bill of sale, the release of liability, warranty, etc. Read our past blog post to make sure everything is in place. Then, do the research and find out how much your car goes for at several car dealers’. Consider the mileage and the extent of damages to figure out the average.

 

Get Out There

Come up with a fair price your old vehicle deserves – not too low but not too high either. You can try negotiating, though keep in mind the minimum cash amount you can agree upon. Go to a car dealership and find out if they are interested in your vehicle. Depending on the condition, they might still give you an offer and help out with the DMV paperwork. Keep in mind, that car dealers will keep at least 15% commission from the sale, so you might be better off scrapping your car! Any car, van or truck no matter of its condition, can be towed away for free and you’ll still make instant money on top of that.

 

Seal the Deal

When you get the best offer, make sure you’re dealing with a reputable car trader. Stay away from the ones, that will ask you to drive to suspicious off-site locations or are too pushy to make a transaction. When you get rid of your junk car, don’t forget about the paperwork.
