If you’re planning on selling your junk car, one of the most important things to do is make sure that you’re able to sell it for the most money possible.
Sadly, most people typically accept less money than what their junk cars are worth when they could have sold them for more.
In this article, we will offer you several tips that you can use to sell your junk car for the most money possible.
Tip #1 – Make Sure Your Junk Car Is Running
Before contacting an automotive recycler, make sure that your junk car is running because, recyclers always charge more money to tow a vehicle so it pays to make sure that your vehicle can run so that you can at the very least, drive it to the junkyard.
Tip #2 – Check The Blue Book
The first place to determine what your junk car is currently worth is the time-tested Blue Book.
The Blue Book is always a good resource because it shows you a ‘ballpark estimate’ of what your vehicle is currently worth.
Tip #3 – Salvage Price Vs. Scrap Price
Even though the salvage price of your vehicle may be one price, keep In mind that the scrap price of your car may be worth more because an older vehicle may have highly desirable parts that are worth big money to a collector.
Tip #4 – Weight Of Vehicle
Last of all, but most important, when determining the value of your junk vehicle, it’s also best to get an estimate the value of your vehicle based on its weight because you can use your vehicle curb weight to get an estimate of its value since most of your vehicle is made of steel.
