When it comes to getting rid of your car, the number of questions you have can easily get in the way of your decision-making process. You may be certain you're going to sell your car on your own, only to find that months later, you still haven't gotten around to listing it. If you're ready to junk your car for good, Junk Car Medics can help you put your uncertainty to rest, so you can make the next move.

I want to sell my car. What is my car worth to Junk Car Medics?

We look at the following factors before making an appraisal:

  1. Model year: Cars were never made to last forever, and yours is definitely starting to show the wear and tear.
  2. Total damage: Maybe your car was in an accident, or maybe the motor was taken out a while ago to be sold separately.
  3. Demand: If your car wasn't exactly expensive in the first place, it isn't likely to fetch much on the open market.
  4. Operability: If your car won't start on command or it hasn't started in years, this will ultimately affect its worth.

We won't fault you for the dings on the fender of the chipping paint, but we will lower the offer if it's been damaged in a flood or has several accidents attached to the VIN.

I just got new brakes, tires, spoilers, etc. Can I get more money?

Ok, brace yourself on this one because the answer is mostly no. The majority of junk cars are purchased for scrap only and there isn't a lot of nuance in that statement. When people are ready to junk a car, it's usually not because it's a high-end model in great shape. So while Junk Car Medics may be able to haggle a little to get you more, the amount is unlikely to knock your socks off.

What can I do to increase my offer?

There is only so much you can do, unless your car is in good enough shape to be repaired and sold to a private buyer. You can repaint it, install a killer spoiler, or detail the interior, but these things aren't going to really help you if it's all just being dismantled anyway.

The best thing is usually to shop around. Check out as many places as possible and list them all in a spreadsheet if you have to! Junk Car Medics may not always be the highest, so there may be a better deal out there for you.

(We will warn you that there are some offers out there that are too good to be true. Some places will quote you one price and then show up with an entirely different offer. By the time the tow truck driver shows up, they know you're not going to want to go through the whole process again.)

You can also consider keeping your car until the market swings back in a more favorable direction. The price of scrap varies based on any number of factors, so there may be an opportunity to get a better offer for it if you wait.

Finally, you can also consider driving the car instead of having it towed. This can increase your offer, especially if the car is located in a remote or inconvenient location. Just remember that it's not worth anyone's safety to drive an unreliable car. Even if you don't care if you end up on the side of the road, you don't want to risk putting another driver there.

Why choose Junk Car Medics over others?

One of the best reasons is because we're fair to you. We're not going to pressure you that we're the only ones out there, or quote you one price only to change it at the last minute. Plus, we have excellent customer service. Let's say you haven't made a phone call since you got your first iPhone. Just let us know and we'll do everything we can to coordinate over email. If you have special circumstances about the location of your car, we want to hear the whole story!

Our online tool is a great starting point, especially if you're not even sure you want to sell with us. Just take a few minutes to tell us about your car, and get your appraisal. If you don't like it, you don't have to do anything else. If you do want to sell though, we take care of all the details. When we pick up the car, all we have to do is quickly verify its condition before you get the cash.

Does Junk Car Medics buy cars without a title?

We know that titles can easily be lost throughout the years. However, whether we can buy a car without a title ultimately depends on your state. Some state laws will allow cars to be scrapped without a title, as long as you're not selling it for any other purpose. Let us know what's going on with the vehicle, and we'll see if we can work with you.

How do I know I can trust Junk Car Medics?
