Why Junking Your Car Might Be Your Best Option

Do you have an old car that you’re trying to get rid of?

We all want to maximize the amount of money we get for our old cars, but some cars simply aren’t worth the hassle of making advertisements, meeting potential buyers, and dealing with paperwork. In these situations, junking your car might be the preferable, and more profitable, option.

Today, we’re going to discuss a few of the main reasons why junking your car could be the best option moving forward. If you’re not familiar with the junk car process, you might not realize how incredibly easy it can be or how much money you can actually get for a junk car.

When you’re moving on from your old car, it’s important to understand all of your options, so let’s learn more about junking a car. You might just find that it’s the best option for you.

What is a Junk Car Buyer?

A junk car buyer is a person or business that makes money on buying cars that don’t run and have very little resale value. 

At All Car Buys, we take the junk car apart, separate the parts, compact the body, and sell it to the next customer within the recycling process. After the car is shredded into smaller pieces, those pieces are sorted on a conveyer belt, then the steel and aluminum are separated by our furnace. We then crush the vehicles for our post-recycling customers to take them away on their trailer.

The Junk Car Buying Process, Explained

If you’ve got a junk car on your property that you need to get rid of, we try to make the process as easy as possible. First, you give us a call to tell us a bit more about your car, truck, or SUV. Telling us the year, make, model, and overall condition can help us get you the best possible price, regardless of whether it’s running, broken down, or completely wrecked.

After we learn more about your junk car, we give you the best possible quote that we can afford. Our equipment and process help us to make more money on the junk cars that we buy. We use this profit to pay you more for your junk car than any other junk car buyer in Orlando.

As long as you agree to our price, all that’s left for you to do is schedule a pickup and get your cash. Depending on where you live, we even do the same or next-day pickup.

You can see that the process is so much simpler than trying to sell your car online to a private buyer or a dealership. Selling a junk car online isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and, more often than not, you’re not going to get as much for it as you will from us.

Looking At Your Other Options

If your car isn’t in a drivable state, or if there’s something else seriously wrong with it, it’s probably not worth it to try and sell it on your own. You’ve got two options when selling a car: find a private buyer or take it to a dealership. Neither of these options are viable for a junk car.

When you bring your car to a dealership, there’s a chance that they will give you a bit of money for your junk car, but only as credit towards one of their vehicles. More often than not, this is going to be a paltry sum of money that doesn’t actually benefit you at all.

The other option, selling privately, isn’t much better. There’s nothing easy about selling a car privately, even one that’s in good condition. When it’s a junk car, you’re going to be dealing mainly with lowball offers.

Besides, selling privately is a huge task. You have to get the car looking in half-decent shape, take loads of detailed photographs, put them online with an enticing ad, then start fielding offers. Even if you get a few interested people, you have to show them the car, explain what’s wrong with it, and hope that they’re willing to give you what you’re asking for it.

It’s obvious that selling your car to a junk car buyer is the easiest way to do things, but when it’s a buyer like us, it’s also the most lucrative option.

How to Prepare to Junk your Car

So, now that we’ve made our case, you need to know what to do before we pick up your car. The first thing is to remove all personal belongings and valuables from the vehicle. We don’t want your fancy stereo system or custom infotainment screen, so make sure you’ve got everything out of the car before we take it.

Next, get your paperwork together. All you need to sell your car to us is a state-issued ID and something proving that you’re the owner of the car. The title is best, but if you don’t have that, there are other ways to provide proof.

Last, but not least, make sure you remove the license plates from the car. In Florida, you need to take the plates to the DMV if you’re not planning on using them. If you are, you just need to have them transfer them over to your new vehicle.

It’s best to get everything ready before we arrive, so we can make the process as quick and smooth as possible. 

Junking Your Car is the Way to Go

As you can see, junking your car is your best option when you have a vehicle that’s wrecked, doesn’t run, or that you just don’t want anymore. If you’re in the Orlando area, contact us at All Car Buys today to get a quote for your junk car.
