Junk cars are often thought to be worthless, but the truth is that they are often worth hundreds of dollars each to a salvage lot. By selling the usable parts on a junk car, and then selling the leftover body and frame to a scrap yard, junkyards can earn thousands of dollars from a single junk vehicle. To ensure that you receive a fair piece of the pie, remember the important tips below when you go to sell your junk cars in Lubbock, Texas, to a junkyard.
Receive Three Offers
If the condition of your junk car has deteriorated to the point where vehicle price guides don’t list a price for its condition, it is important to receive more than one offer to get a ballpark estimate of the vehicle’s worth. Furthermore, receiving more than one quote often results in the opportunity to sell a junk vehicle for more than the original offer you receive. Receiving three offers is ideal.
Don’t Pay for Towing
Paying to have your car towed to the junkyard can cost hundreds of dollars. Thankfully, many junkyards offer free towing services to customers. If you pay for towing, your profit from selling your vehicle will probably only be a few dollars, if you profit at all. Receiving free towing ensures that you will keep all the money you receive from selling your automobile to a junkyard.
Don’t Price Haggle
Price haggling typically ends up favoring the buyer of a vehicle, not the seller. Furthermore, it is easier to make a case for a junk vehicle being worth less money than to make a case for it being worth more money. Therefore, don’t haggle to negotiate a sale price. If a junkyard wants to price haggle, politely excuse yourself from the negotiation and look for a different buyer.
