Selling your car to a junk company could be frustrating but if you have no other choice than this, it is better to go ahead rather than looking at the car which may not be responding to series of repairs. Selling your junk car for cash will get you some quick cash and when the junk company takes possession of the car, it will either sell some salvaged parts or use the parts to repair other vehicles.
You should consult with a business directory phonebook and go to the section tagged “Automobile Recyclers” or Automobile Wreckers”. You will find a lot of junk car companies in this section to choose from. On the other hand, you can go online to a business directory site and type in “junk car” as well as your zip code and a list of companies in your locality will be generated for you. In addition, you can get in touch with your friends, associates, family members or mechanic and ask for a name of a trusted company they have dealt with before. The phone numbers of the companies you have discovered should be written down so that it will be easy for you to contact them.
You should put a call through to the car junk company, informing its representative that you have a car to sell. You should let him know the make, model and year of the vehicle. You should not forget to inform him about the features of the junk car like air conditioning, CD player, AM/FM radio and he should be informed if you are going to remove any after-market parts or accessories after the sale. The condition of the car should be described sincerely including defects or problems with the engine, transmission or interior. If you are not honest with this information, the company may refuse to buy your automobile if it discovers that it is in worse shape than you described.
Subsequently, you should allow the company to make a quote for your junk car. It is important to get quotes from about 3 companies so that you will be able to go for the highest bidder. The company will naturally fix a date for physical inspection and once it is satisfied with the condition of your vehicle, necessary payment will be made. You will then need to transfer the ownership to the company and you will be presented with some documents that you will have to sign.
