When a car is wrecked in an accident it may be tempting to pay a junk car removal company to take the vehicle. However, did you know that there is a way to get money for a wrecked car or truck? In this article, we will give you the best tips and tricks to get the most cash for a wrecked car.

Get cash for a wrecked car

Many people are surprised to find that they are able to get cash for their wrecked car, even it was involved in a major collision. Cars that are not longer road-safe are still worth some money! This is because they are still filled with valuable materials such as:

    • GPS systems
    • Stereo systems
    • Metals such as rhodium, platinum, and palladium
    • Car batteries
    • Airbags
    • Exhaust pipes/parts
    • Doors
    • Windshield wipers
    • Mirrors
    • Electrical parts
    • Rims
    • Tires (rubber)
    • Fenders
    • Bumpers

Reputable junk car buyers often work with technicians who specialize in recycling vehicles. These specialists are able to take nearly all of the materials that can be reused, recycled, or sold before sending the remaining parts of the wrecked vehicle to a landfill. The decision to sell a wrecked vehicle to a junk car buyer is actually more environmentally friendly than simply sending it to a landfill because hazardous parts and materials will be removed before it arrives. 

How to find someone who will pay cash for a wrecked car

Now, you may be asking yourself how you can find someone who will pay cash for a wrecked vehicle. Well, it really isn’t difficult but is important that you choose an honest and reputable company that will offer you the most for your wrecked car. It is also vital to find out whether or not the junk car removal company works with (or is) an auto recycling specialist. If the company is not able to break down a wrecked car or truck for parts they will not be able to offer top-dollar for them. A good rule of thumb is to check out the following before choosing a company:

    • Reviews from past customers
    • Company website
    • Company social media

These should help you determine the legitimacy of the junk car removal company and whether or not they recycle junk vehicles.

How much cash will I get for a wrecked car?

It is hard to say exactly how much to expect to make off of a wrecked vehicle. However, in general, junk car buyers will pay between $150 to $500 for a junk car. Factors that impact the value of the car include:

    • The extent of damage to the car or truck
    • Make, model, and year of the vehicle
    • Weight of the vehicle
    • Demand for parts from the specific vehicle
    • Scrap metal values

Selling a Junk Car is Easy

Simply call your local junk car buyer and sell the unwanted vehicle to them for cash. Auto Recycling Denver pays cash on the spot and offers FREE towing for all junk car sellers. Once the car is taken off of your hands, it is taken to a local auto salvage yard where it can be broken down into smaller pieces and parts. These parts are separated and sent to the appropriate locations to be recycled or reused in some way. Any parts that cannot be reused are then taken to the landfill in a safe manner. This includes draining any toxic fluids, such as windshield wiper fluid, anti-freeze, and other chemicals that may have been left in the car. This will minimize the number of car parts that end up in landfills dramatically and also gives new life to old parts of the car.
