When calling around to get the most cash for your junk car, you need to know which ones will net you the most cash.
Just because your vehicle is newer does not always mean more it is worth more money
A few things you should factor in when calling around to get a quote for your vehicle.
Number one, is the vehicle running or not. Your vehicle should be worth more money if its running and free of any major mechanical issues. The motor and transmission are the heart and soul on any vehicle, for example, if the motor is good but the transmission is not, then it would be considered non running. If both are good mechanically then it would be consider running and you should be able to get more money. You can also refer to this article junk it or fix it
If the car is not running, you need to worry about the weight, size, brand and condition. The weight of the vehicle is important so SUV’s and trucks should always bring you a good profit no matter how old it is. The brand of the vehicle can also net your more because of supply and demand. If the interior and exterior are in good shape then you should not settle for any type of deductions from a junk yard.
Toyota, Honda, Ford and any type of SUV usually brings in around the same amount regardless of the year.
Junk yards know which parts net them the most profit. They are eager to get their hands on vehicles that make them the most money and will pay more! Its important to call around getting quotes.
