There are a number of services that buy junk cars and will give you cash for your junk car. The problem is they all seem to promise roughly the same things. So just how are you supposed to decide which one is the right one for you? Here are some tips on how to research reviews, and what our customers have to say about their experience with our nearby cash for junk cars service.
Why You Should Do Your Research
Researching junk car services is the best way to keep yourself from a frustrating experience. Flaky tow truck drivers, misleading pricing, disorganized or incorrect paperwork: there are a lot of snags you might hit if you choose the wrong company.
Junking a car might not be rocket science, but there’s a lot of coordination and precision involved to get it right. There’s also the potential to run into a fraudster who’s out to take just a little more than you bargained for.
Check the Reviews
The most common way for people to research different companies is to check their online reviews. In general, this is a good way to go, though you should be wary of certain red flags. For instance, if a company has 300 reviews, and they’re all in the same month, it could be a sign that the reviews were staged or faked. Reviews that are light on specifics and heavy on praise (or spelling errors) are also likely best ignored.
It’s somewhat obnoxious to make calls in 2021, but it’s still a great way to get a sense of who you’re really working with. Is the customer service team aware of its company's practices? Do they seem to value your business? If the people you talk to are lukewarm about talking to you before you officially choose them, imagine how they’ll act if you have something go wrong during the process.
This is also the time to check how much they’ll actually give you for your car. All junk car services will promise you cash, but not all will give you the same dollar amount. You don’t have to call around everywhere, but neither should you take the first deal.
Check Out the Website
Instead of calling around, you can also look at the websites of different services. Plenty of companies will have online forms that you can fill out to get an instant quote. As long as you’re honest about the condition of your car, that quote should hold firm throughout the process. (Just make sure you have as much information as possible (e.g., mileage, VIN, etc.) about your car to get the most accurate figure.
When you look at the website, evaluate it with the same degree of scrutiny as you did the online reviews. If the links don’t work or there’s multiple spelling errors on the website, you might be better off working with someone else.

If you want to know more about the experience customers have with Junk Car Medics, we’re happy to share our reviews.
A Fair Price
Junk Car Medics isn’t always going to be the highest bidder, but many of our reviews do give us that credit. Part of the reason we’re able to offer more is that we’ve negotiated our way to better deals. We deal in volume — buying thousands of cars every month — and it allows us to call (at some of) the shots. Once we have the savings on our end, we just pass it down to the customers.
Efficiency and Speed: A Smooth Process
This is undeniably the most overwhelming compliment our customers give us. People fill out their information online, and the next thing you know, their car is gone. Depending on where a person lives, it’s not abnormal for the car to be gone within 24 hours or less.
People come to Junk Car Medics when they’re disappointed with trade-in offers or when other companies haven’t even responded to their requests. We have a strong network of partners across the US, making it possible to arrange a tow without putting any undue hassle on the owner.
Plus, we’re constantly reviewing how customers are faring when they part with their vehicle. If one of our partner’s reputation starts to fall, we evaluate the agreements to ensure we’re giving our customers the best in service.
Customer Service: A Friendly Experience
Professional, knowledgeable, friendly: it’s the trifecta of customer service. According to our reviews, people are pleased at just how easy it is to get their questions answered or their concerns addressed.
This has been the cornerstone of the company all along. In addition to giving people cash, we help them solve problems. It’s a nice feeling to finally see those old clunkers go, and our customer service team is there to make the transaction as carefree as possible.
Getting It Right
There are plenty of reasons why it pays to search for the right junk car service, even if it’s going to take some effort on your end. The good news is that if you pick a reputable company, you end up with a little extra money to put toward whatever strikes your fancy.
