Are you finally looking to sell your junk car, but don’t know where to start?
It’s no wonder.
There’s a lot of confusing information out there about the best way to sell your junk car. If you don’t understand how the process works, you can short-change yourself and end up with a headache instead of extra cash.
Here at AllCarBuys, we buy junk cars. We want to help you make the best decision, and get the biggest return on your vehicle. So we’ve written up this handy guide that examines all the options for selling your vehicle and explains why it’s best to go direct.
Options for Selling Your Junk Car
There are three basic options for selling a junk car:
sell to a private individual
sell to a middle man
sell to a salvage yard or automotive recycling center
Let’s take a look at each of these choices.
Selling to an Individual
This is the least efficient option on the list. Unless you already know someone who is interested, it’s not very easy to find a buyer. And if you do have a buyer, you still need to work out the delivery details. That can be a logistical pain, especially if the car is not in working order.
You also cannot sell a vehicle to an individual without the title. If you do not have the title, you’ll have to get a new one from the DMV first, which costs money and takes time.
Selling to a Middle Man
If you’ve done an internet search for the best junk car buyer, you may have run into sites put up by lead generation companies. These companies do not process the cars they buy. Instead, they act as a middle man. They mark up the price they paid the buyer and then sell the car to a salvage yard, automotive recycling center, or auction house.
These sites will claim to get you the best deal, citing their extensive networks of junk car buyers. But anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of economics knows this isn’t true.
The middle man adds no value to the car before selling it to the end buyer. The end buyer has no incentive to spend more money on a car just because he’s buying it from a middle man instead of from the original owner. So where does the middle man’s profit come from?
It comes from you, the car owner.
Car owner sells their car to a middle man for $390.
Middle man sells it to the automotive recycler for $500, pocketing $110.
That car owner could have gotten an extra $110 by selling the car directly to the recycler.
Here at AllCarBuys, we know this first-hand. We buy junk cars directly from owners and from lead generation companies, and we pay the same price regardless of the source.
But we’ve seen with our own eyes the troubles that can arise when a seller uses a middle man. There are a few instances where salvage yards cannot accept vehicles; for example, if they have been in a fire or have already been processed. But lead generation companies don’t ask these questions. So when it comes time to hand off the car, the recycler can’t take it, the customer is unhappy and they have to figure out what to do with their car all over again.
Additionally, middlemen don’t take responsibility for the paperwork necessary to transfer a car to junked status. If you deal with a less-than-reputable company, your car could end up resold to another person without a proper transfer of title. That means someone could be driving a car under your name—and you could be liable if they get into an accident.
But there’s good news: You can avoid this mismanagement by lead generation companies by selling your car direct.
Selling to an Automotive Recycler
By eliminating the middle man, you can get the best return for your junk car. When you sell to a salvage yard or recycler directly, you will avoid unpleasant surprises on pick-up day. And you can feel good about your decision because recycling a vehicle is much better for the environment than just dumping the whole car.
Get the Most Money for Your Junk Car
Going direct saves you money because you don’t have to pay the middle man. But not all salvage yards are equal. You’ll get the best prices and experience from small, local companies that are equipped to do all processing of the vehicle in-house.
Why Choose Us
AllCarBuys is an automotive recycling center. We don’t sell parts to the public. When we buy your car, we take it apart, separate the material, compact the body, and sell it to the next customer in the recycling process.
We have invested in the equipment necessary to maximize your cash payout, including:
A scorpion, which is an excavator that can pull apart a vehicle’s main components.
A slow-speed shredder, which shreds the car body into smaller pieces before they are moved to a conveyer belt where the metals can be sorted into pure streams.
A furnace, which allows us to separate aluminum from steel. Recycling cars is all about separating elements into pure metals that manufacturers can use.
A crusher, which compacts the remnants of the vehicle into a smaller package. After we crush the vehicles, our post-recycling customers can more easily transport the car bodies on a trailer. And they’re willing to pay more for them.
Having all of this equipment means we can make more money on each junk car we buy. And we pass that profit on to our clients by paying them the best prices for their junk cars.
