Top 3 Ways to Get Rid of Your Junk Car
If you have a junk car taking up space in your garage or driveway, then there are a number of ways for you to get rid of the vehicle – and make some money while doing it. We’ve covered some of the top options below so that you can make an informed decision, based on the condition of your vehicle.
1. Sell It to a Private Buyer
Selling your vehicle to a private buyer can result in the largest payout. However, buyers are looking for a used vehicle that will last them, so if your car is not in good condition, it can be difficult to find an interested party. After placing ads to find interested buyers and waiting for a response, you will need to deal with strangers, respond to spam emails and phone calls, and make time to meet with potentially interested buyers at your home. Fortunately, there are easier, faster ways to get rid of your unwanted vehicle.
2. Dispose of It Yourself
Attempting to disassemble the vehicle and sell off the useable parts yourself can make you more money, but it can also take significantly more time and can be potentially dangerous if you aren’t completely sure of what you’re doing. With this option, you will also need to find a buyer interested in your car parts or tires, which can take more time and hassle than it’s worth. It is also important to take care of the parts you intend to sell and get a better understanding of their value before you try selling.
In order to safely dispose of the vehicle yourself, you will need to do the following:
- Drain all fluids (including the gas, coolant, and oil)
- Remove any usable car parts
- Recycle the catalytic converter
- Sell the tires and usable car parts by posting an ad on Craigslist or listing them on eBay
