Making Money on a Junk Car

Many people see junk cars as a source of frustration and liability but in almost all of these situations you can get money for your old car.

  • Selling Your Old Car. Used car dealers and new car dealers are the obvious buyers for older cars, but don’t dismiss the idea of selling it on your own. You may make more money by selling it on your own, but you’ll have to do a lot of leg work yourself. Selling a car on your own involves advertising it, taking phone calls and inquiries, setting up showings, allowing potential buyers to test drive the vehicle or even take it to their mechanic for an inspection. Then once you have a buyer you’ll need to handle the sale and transfer of the vehicle properly. In some states this is as simple as signing the title over. In others, it is a bit more involved and you may have to fill out official title transfer forms. Be sure to research your particular state’s requirements with the state Department of Motor Vehicles.
  • Selling The Car For Parts. If you choose to sell a car for parts, you disassemble it and sell the pieces individually. It can be a long process, but you can often make more money selling the pieces individually than selling the entire vehicle as a whole and the Internet makes selling parts easier than ever. In order to make selling a car for parts worthwhile, you’ll need to do some research beforehand. You will need to determine the going rate for the part you’re interested in selling, then advertise it to find a buyer. Some people sell their parts by listing the car make, model and year and letting buyers contact them with what they need. Other sellers will sell each part individually, which means advertising each piece individually. However you decide to sell the vehicle, take lots of pictures because online buyers will ask for them before making a decision.
  • Donating A Car to Charity. Donating cars has caught on big time in recent years. When you donate a vehicle to charity you are eligible for a tax write off of up to $500, which makes the option attractive to people looking for a tax break. But it’s not as simple as calling up a charity and telling them you’ve got a car to donate. First, the charity must be a registered 501c(3) organization in order to receive the tax break. You’ll also need to know what happens to the vehicle after you donate it to the charity. Does the charity keep the vehicle and use it for their programs? If so, claiming your tax write-off will be a lot easier than if the charity sells the vehicle in which case you’ll need to provide a sales receipt in order to prove the vehicle’s value. Another thing to think about is whether you’re dealing with a middleman or the charity directly. If a middleman is involved, you should find out how much of a cut they get in the deal. In some cases it can be as high as 90%! That doesn’t leave much for the charity you’ve chosen.
  • Junk the Car. If your car is severely damaged and undriveable, junking it is a good option. Junking a car is the easiest way to get rid of an old vehicle. Junk car removal companies buy cars in just about any condition and will pay you for them, oftentimes the same day and in cash. Just call them up, give them a little information about your vehicle and they’ll give you a quote for it. Junk car businesses will pay fair market value for the vehicle in most cases and you won’t have to make any repairs to it prior to selling. It’s the fastest, easiest, no-questions-asked way to get rid of a junk car.
