Short answer - you will most likely be paid by check but Junk Car Medics guarantee all payments and have never had an issue.
While getting paid cash for cars would be awesome and ease a lot of concerns regarding dealing with shady people in the junkyard industry it's just not that viable. Paying by check is not only better for the paperwork but also safer. Some of the cars we buy go into the $1,000's of dollars and sending in our tow truck drivers with that much cash just isn't safe.
We understand you would rather get paid $500 cash for junk cars and not a check and that it makes you feel at peace so we do the next best thing and guarantee all payments.
Over the years we've paid out over $54 million dollars and are happy to say we've never had an issue with a single check.
