What Is A Junk Car? And How Do You Know When It’s Time To Sell It?

junk car

If you own an older vehicle, you know that it’s possible that your car, truck, or van can be classified as a ‘junk car’ and it may be time for you to sell it.

Even though you may have formed an attachment to that vehicle over the years, the reality is that knowing when to sell it is important because it’s possible that you may be investing more money in that vehicle than it’s worth.

In this article, we will offer you several signs that you do own a junk vehicle and it’s time for you to sell it.

#1 – Damage

If your vehicle has been damaged anytime within the last 5 years and you’ve not been able to repair it, this is a clear sign that it’s a junk vehicle and you should sell or recycle it immediately because you’re potentially putting yourself, or other drivers in harm’s way by keeping that vehicle on the road.

#2 – Low Safety Rating

Another way to know that it’s time to sell your Oregon vehicle is if it has a safety rating that falls lower than today’s safety standards.

#3 – Rust

Last of all, but most important, another reason to sell a junk vehicle is rust. This is a very important indicator that your vehicle has reached ‘junk car’ status and you should get rid of it immediately because vehicle rust is also a hazard that can affect vehicle safety as well.
