Tips on Selling Your Junk Car for Holiday Cash  

If you have an old car or a vehicle that has been damaged in a collision or that is no longer running, you may be ready to sell it for some extra holiday shopping cash. But, you may be wondering — how can I sell my car without spending a lot of time and trouble to do it? If you want to get paid top dollar for an old vehicle during the holiday season, there are two common options.

The information below is to help you choose between these two most often used approaches to selling an old car.

Two Options for Selling an Old Car for Cash

There are two frequently used ways to sell cars of any kind in any condition. One way is harder and takes longer, and it doesn’t always produce results. The other way is the fastest and easiest way to sell a car for the best price. Here are the two most used options for selling an old car:

OPTION 1: Clean It, Advertise It, and Take Appointments to Show the Car

Depending on the car’s age and condition, you may decide to try to sell the car to a buyer directly. If you choose this option, here’s what to do to sell an old car to the public:

  1. Clean up the car: The car may be worth more if the parts, including body parts, can be sold piece by piece. So, wash the car, clean the wheels, shampoo the upholstery and carpeting, clean the headliner, wipe down the dashboard and console, wash the windows, etc. It can further help to clean the trunk. Consider cleaning the undercarriage and the engine.
  2. Repair the car: Or, if it makes sense financially to repair the car to make it operable and resell it as a usable car, you may be able to sell the car for more. But, first, determine whether it’s worth your time, money, and risk to invest in the car at this point for the purpose of reselling it.
  3. Create an ad for the car. Include details about the car and several photos, if possible, for potentially better results.
  4. Place your ad and wait. Now it’s time to hope that people will contact you about buying the car. Prepare to talk with a number of people and answer a lot of questions repeatedly before you find your buyer.
  5. Schedule meetings to show the car: Meet in person with the callers who express serious interest in buying the car. Meet only in safe public places, not at your home or the buyer’s location.

KEEP IN MIND: After you go through the long and laborious process of preparing and listing your car for sale, you may end up waiting a long time for a buyer. Even when someone does make you an offer to buy the car, they may not want to pay you the amount you want.

OPTION 2: Sell Your Old Car for Top Dollar to Junk Car Cash Out.

Instead of spending a lot of your time on phone calls and showing the car to a lot of people, and possibly getting very little money for all your trouble, you can sell the car for recycling. Taking this approach means there’s no risk of not finding a buyer, you get paid immediately, and you’ll be helping the environment. Here are the easy and quick steps to sell your junk car to Junk Car Cash Out for top dollar:

  1. Call Junk Car Cash Out: Or, you can just fill out our quote request online. Provide us with the requested information about your vehicle.
  2. Receive a quote for your car’s value: We will quickly give you a quote for the amount we will pay for your car (often within just a few minutes). The quote is the correct amount of the car’s current salvage value.
  3. You accept the purchase offer: After you agree to the sale price for your car, we will schedule the most convenient day and time for you to have your vehicle picked up. Our driver will pay you cash at the time the car is removed.

KEEP IN MIND: You may choose to obtain a Salvage Title if you don’t already have one before selling us your car. Or, if you do not have a title to your old car, you can still sell your car with no title. We will check with the DMV to confirm that there are no liens on the vehicle, and we can then buy the car from you at a price adjusted to compensate for the added administrative work.

These guys were awesome to work with. Our car was totaled. I filled out info on their website. They texted me a quote (which was more than expected, tbh). Car was picked up and money in hand later on that day. They made it as painless as possible.

Would definitely use Junk Car Cash Out again! They are very friendly and helpful, we’re easy to work with, gave me more cash than any other company I contacted, and the whole process from first contact to them picking up the car with cash in my hand took less than 24 hours. The tow driver, James, even worked with me and waited while I turned around for a forgotten garage door opener. JCCO will be my go to if I need these services again.

After my accident, we decided to not keep the car. Stacey said she would get back to me on our desired amount for our vehicle.and she did. They were prompt, came at the arranged time and paid in cash. Stacey mad it easy to give them the necessary paperwork and I consider them trustworthy people to work with.

Easy Satisfying Great experience! Such a seamless experience, wonderful, friendly people to work with. They literally did all the work for me, gave me a fair value for my vehicle, & offered solutions to me at every roadblock. I prefer text msg, never had to speak to anyone but pickup driver for seconds to exchange custody of vehicle & payment. All I had to do was hand over the keys with signed title, & then was handed cash right then for the amount agreed upon, driver pulled it out of my driveway with ease, & no interruption to neighbors, community or myself, once payment, keys & title were exchanged, I went back to what I was doing & vehicle & driver were leaving mins later. Easy Satisfying Great experience!

Getting a quote was easy and I felt zero pressure to accept. Once I decided to accept my quote, scheduling pickup was also easy. The tow truck came to me at the appointed time. The driver was friendly, professional, and showed he valued my time. From the time they showed up and when my junk car was towed away was probably 15 minutes. My quote was honored. Zero stress.

I shopped around a few places and this was by far the best deal and experience. The other guys offered me 1/4 of the money, hounded me while I was waiting for my title in the mail (which I hadn't realized I didn't have until I reached out to sell it), told me their very low offer was going to expire, and told me "other companies" were going to show up for pick up and change their offer to almost nothing.Junck Car Cash Out was respectful, waited for me to contact them when I was ready, picked up my vehicle the same day I had everything ready, and paid me in cash their original offer with no haggling or renegotiating. They didn't bad mouth the competition and the guy who picked up my vehicle was friendly, courtious, and professional. All in all it was a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone!

I inquired about a quote for my vehicle through the website and I received an email within an hour. Communication was always quick and informative. As soon as I accepted the offer they gave me for my vehicle, the tow Junk drover called me within the hour and picked up my car 45 min later. In total the process took two days, and everyone was professional. I highly recommend Junk Car Cash out!
