Cars are like anything else—after a while, you just need to get rid of them. Paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars for repairs just isn’t worth it after a certain point. But what are you to do when your car is super old, or if it won’t even run? Getting someone else to buy it will be a tough task, and there’s no way a dealer will want the vehicle if it doesn’t run. That’s where Junkyard Dog comes in. We pay cash for cars in Fort Lauderdale! Continue reading to learn how you can get the most cash for your old vehicle:
- Know when it’s time to sell: The first step in getting the most cash for your car is knowing when it’s time to get rid of it. Does it seem to need repairs every few hundred miles? Do the repairs cost more than the car’s worth? If the answer is yes, or if your car looks like it’s about to fall apart, you should bring it to us! Chances are, a dealership won’t buy it back from you, and even if they do, you won’t get cash like we’re able to offer.
- Assess the value: Now that you know it’s time to sell it, you should try to figure out the vehicle’s value. You can start by checking out the vehicle’s value in Kelley Blue Book. Their website is easy to use—all you need to do is enter your vehicle’s year, make, model and mileage, and you’ll get a fairly accurate estimate for how much it’s worth. The problem is that Kelley Blue Book doesn’t factor in any damage to the vehicle. If your car does have damage, you’ll need to take it to a professional to get an estimate.
- Get several estimates: You wouldn’t hire the first contractor you call to fix your air conditioner—you’d call a few different places to see who will give you the best rate. The same should be true when it comes to selling your junk car. Call different junkyards to see which one will pay you the most for it. We guarantee that Junkyard Dog can offer you the most money out of all the junkyards in town.
- Establish ownership: Next, you’ll need to establish ownership of the vehicle before you sell it to a junkyard. After all, we can’t just accept any car that comes to our junkyard. What if the vehicle is stolen, or if the real owner didn’t give permission to sell it? That puts everyone involved in serious legal trouble. All you have to do is bring us the title, and we can hand you some cash for your unwanted vehicle.
If you’ve had it up to here with constantly fixing your car, or if you can’t get it to start at all, just give us a call! As mentioned above, we offer the most cash for cars in Fort Lauderdale. Don’t miss out on getting all of your money’s worth by bringing your vehicle to a different junkyard—choose Junkyard Dog and walk away with a pocket full of cold, hard cash!
