You can sell your junk car with us and that too at your expected prices. We guide you throughout while you are planning to sell your junk car, and there for any support at each step.
What can be done with a junk car?
If you’re planning to get rid of your old car, you can do it in a variety of ways. There are many options available in order to dispose of your unwanted car.
The first one among this, you can sell it to a dealer. In this way, you can even earn some amount out of it which might compensate your investment in the car to some extent. But the major problem that the car owners face in this case is that the dealers are never ready to pay a reasonable price for the car. They always bargain a lot and try to break the value as much as possible because they want to get the car in the cheapest amount, so that they can clean and repair it, sell it to another user and earn huge profit.
You should be aware of while selling your old car to a dealer. You should not visit just one dealer and sell it, you must ask different dealers to share their offer and then compare them. Only go for the one that you find more profitable for you.
In case you find that you’re not getting a reasonable amount by selling it to dealers, then you can try to sell it yourself. This task is a bit hectic as you need to invest your time in getting your car repaired and clean, and then directly sell it to the user. This will be definitely profitable for you, as here you can quote your price to the buyer to get a fair amount for your junk car. To spread the message “Car for sale”, you can use various online platforms you can even try the traditional method of selling the car which is going for a newspaper advertisement.
One more beneficial deal that you can do with your old car is to trade it in case you are looking forward to buying a new one. Trading can only be done if you are interested to buy a new car in return. By trading your old car in exchange for the new one, you can get the original amount of the car reduced. In this case, the dealer will offer you a price which depends on how much repairing does your car need and how old it is. Also, this deal is completely official and if you do not like the offer, you are not at all bothered to accept it.
You can even sell your car on an online platform. There are various such platforms available online which buy your old car. They will provide you with various offers when you accept the order; they come to you and pick up the car. They will check the condition of the car, and if they find it good to go, they will pay you on the spot for it.
In some cases, the car is completely damaged, nobody is likely to buy and pay for it, as it has no life anymore, and in such cases you can justjunk your car. You can ask a junk removal service company to visit and pick up your car, they will come with a tow truck to pick and will even pay for it. If your car is nothing but a scrap, you might not get any amount in return but you will definitely get a free towing service to get it off your back.
Is selling the old car the only way, or should I say the right way?
This decision completely depends on the owner of the car. Usually, keeping a junk car at your place is not worth it at all. And everybody wants to get rid of it as it is occupying space as well. In the countries where you need to pay for the parking, it is almost impossible to keep the junk car as it will cost you very much. Hence, it is suggested to either sell your car or donate it.
Donating is an option for those who are not interested in selling it and rather wants to make good use of it. There are many organizations that accept car donations, which they can use for their different services.
Selling and trading are also a good option, as you can get a good profit out of it. You just need to be very careful while selling your car, because the dealer might manipulate you to sell it at a very low price, but you need to make sure that you get a good and reasonable price for your car.
Selling your junk car, note the following points!
There are many dealers who will give you different offers for your car, but you need to take care of some details when you are planning to sell your car. Sharing a few points which you need to know and follow.
- A very basic rule is to get the washing and detailing of your car done. It is because the first look of the car attracts the buyer, while a worse looking car can even put an adverse effect on the buyer.
- You do not need to provide the additional accessories of the car to the buyer for free. In case he/she is paying for it, it’s well and good. Otherwise, you must take these accessories off the car, and sell them separately so that you get even more value for your car.
- Do not give the chance to the buyer to negotiate on your offer. You have to get your car serviced and the damages repaired before the buyer comes so that you can sell the car at a good price.
- You should keep the maintenance record of your car from day one, this is because the day you will plan to sell your car, you will be able to negotiate with the buyer on this basis, also this shows that how responsible you were as the owner and how well maintained your car is.
- Make sure that you sign a legal contract while selling your car, and the contract must include the details like, sale price, condition of the car, and the date of selling. This is very important as just the oral thing never works.
- Last but not the least, you must check the background of the buyer before selling the car, and complete all the required formalities so that you do not face any disputes in the future.
Obstacles while selling the car
The major problem that people face is not being able to decide whether they want to sell it directly to the buyer or to a car dealer. In this case, the only solution is to explore both the options and go for the best deal.
Another problem that the seller’s face is, the dealers are so dedicated to breaking down the price of the car for their personal motive. They try their best to negotiate and never give a reasonable price to the owner which often makes the owners sell the car at a very low price.
