Getting Cash Today For Your Junk Car May Be Easier Than You Think

If you have been putting off getting rid of your old junk car because you didn't want to deal with the hassle of finding a buyer or the expense of towing the vehicle away, you may be surprised to learn that the process of getting cash for your car is actually much easier than you think. In fact, you can often get cash for your car the very same day even if you no longer have the title for the vehicle. Best of all, you can complete this entire process from the comfort of your home without the need to even change out of your pajamas if you don't want to. Read on to learn more about how you can make some easy cash today by selling your junk car.

Taking The First Step

The first step you need to take is rather simple but is the most important step: get offers on your junk car. To do this, you will want to compile a list of phone numbers for auto salvage yards in your area that purchase junk cars. When contacting each of these companies you should expect to be asked a series of questions so you will want to make sure you have the necessary information to answer these questions. These questions include the following:

  • What is the year, make, and model of the vehicle you are looking to sell?
  • What size motor does the vehicle have?
  • Is the vehicle complete?
  • Does the vehicle run, and does it have air in all the tires? (This question is necessary so they know what type of tow truck to send.)
  • Does the vehicle have aluminum alloy, steel alloy, or chrome wheels?
  • Where is the vehicle?
  • Do you have the title for the vehicle?

Once you are sure that you have all the information needed to answer these questions, simply begin calling each of the numbers on your list to get an offer to purchase your vehicle. Once you find the best offer for your vehicle, you will be able to accept this offer and move on to the second and final step.

Completing The Deal

At this point, you should have been given a time frame for when the tow truck will arrive at your location in order to complete the purchase of your junk car. When the tow truck arrives, you will be asked to either sign the back of your title or to complete an affidavit of ownership if you are no longer able to locate the title. Once all of the paperwork is out of the way, you will be provided with cash payment for your vehicle, the vehicle will be loaded onto the tow truck, and your transaction will be complete.
