An old junk car taking up space on your property is a pain, but getting rid of it isn't always easy. Cash-for-cars buyers are a good option, as they buy vehicles in all conditions based upon their value as scrap. 

1. You Need Quick Cash

Trying to sell a car through the traditional methods of classified ads and word of mouth takes awhile, both to find the buyer and to negotiate the final selling price. Selling to a cash-for-cars buyer is nearly instantaneous, a must if you are in need of quick cash.

2. The Car is Junk

Trading in a junk car, particularly one that doesn't run, isn't an option at many dealerships. Those that do take junk cars on trade often offer very little for them. A cash-for-cars buyer pays based on the inherent value of the junk car in its scrap and parts value. Unlike a dealer, these buyers are willing to put in the time to extract this remaining value, which means more money in your pocket.

3. It's Less Hassle

Trying to sell a car is always a hassle, especially if it is no longer running and is best suited for a junkyard. You may need to shop the car around junkyards or individually sell the parts if you try to unload it on your own. A cash-for-cars buyer handles all of these details for you by simply offering a fair price for the car as is, based on the resale value of the scrap. This means you don't have to deal with any of the hassles of selling.

4. For the Environment

You may not need the space or money from an old car on your property, but leaving it parked is still doing some harm. Leaking fluids like oil and leaching of heavy metals from batteries and other components can lead to soil and water contamination on your property. Selling the car is the best option if you don't want to cause any more damage to the ecosystem.

5. Saves Money

In some cases, that old car on your property could be costing you money. Whether you are paying high storage fees or facing the risk of fines for keeping it parked, selling it solves the problem. Most cash-for-cars buyers also handle all the logistics fees, such as towing, at no out-of-pocket cost to you. At most, they will deduct the tow cost from the final amount they pay you, but you won't have to come up with any cash.
