If your in that particular situation where you have a car that you no longer need/want, you must have already thought heaps of times that its time, that its taken to the tip/scrap. Heaps of people make the mistake of thinking that calling the junk yard is the easiest way to get rid of an old car, true, it might be the most convenient/easiest way, but not the best. What people forget, or are simply just not aware of that, is the fact that they could have made money for their old/unused/unwanted junk car. No matter how broken down or useless the car may seem to you, there is someone out there who would pay good money for it, or at least what the spare parts would be worth. So do not be rash in getting rid of an old car. Below are some guided tips to keep in the back of your mind if you are choosing to sell your junk car to a Cash for Cars companies.

The first step in this process is to call a used car sales man, yes, that's before even calling the Cash for Cars company. As we all know how witty car sales man are, they will know exactly how much your car might be worth and what you can get for it. No need to be surprised, but the same car salesman might even make you an offer to buy the car themselves, in which case cant be a bad thing. Equally don't be surprised if the car is 'too far gone' as assessed by the salesman, this is rarely the case, but it can happen. More often then not, the salesman will be happy to make a profit on the car, in which case they will make you an offer that might be a decent sum of money.

If the salesman tells you that he has no interest in your car, then you need to consider your options. One of the options before you is to contact the car junk yard. Believe it or not junk yards will pay small sums for old cars. So do not think about giving your car away for free, despite the condition that the car is in.

You may be in a situation where you need to get rid of a car as soon as possible. If that is the case, call your local car junk yard and tell them to schedule a pick up in the next day or two. They will come by, look at the car, take it away, and pay you a decent sum of cash. Do not be hesitant to ask for payment. In most cases, junk yards will sell car parts and make good money on them. If they give you a small amount of money, they will still make a profit.

Be thorough and honest when you are describing your car, no matter whom you are speaking with. If you are talking to the junk yard, car salesman, or someone from Craigslist, do not make your car sound better than it is. When someone comes by to look at it and make the final offer, they will get to see the car, so be open and honest, neither of you want to come out of the conversation worse off.

So what can you expect to be asked? Typically the questions you will be asked will be related to the age, make, model, and condition of the car. Do not be afraid to be specific about what is wrong with the car, and what still works. The more details you offer, the more accurate a selling price you will be quoted. Just remember to be persistent.

You will be amazed by how useful junk cars can be. Most of these cars can be brought to a solid working condition with a few repairs. On the off chance that a car has no hope of running again, its good parts will be sold. Car repair shops will pay a lot of money for car parts, especially for parts of an old car. The older the car is, the more likely its parts will be in demand.

Your second option is of course contacting the Cash for Cars company. If you are not sure where you can locate these companies, they are just a small click away on your computer. Enter into your search engine Cash for CarsBrisbane, Cash for Cars New York, Cash for Cars Toronto (your local town) and you will come across the exact contact details you need.

So how do Cash for Cars companies work? Well its very simple, all you have to do is contact them and provide basic details. Once the company has the your contact information, make and model of the car, along with a brief description (eg: is it in running condition, what works what does not work etc), a quote can be produced generally within 24 hours. If you accept the quote offered to you, the company will handle any necessary paper work, make the arrangements for pick up, and deliver the much welcomed cash leaving the transaction completely hassel-free for you.

Do not make the mistake of giving your junk car away for free. The removal process takes the same amount of energy and time whether you make money off it or not. In that case, it is better to make a small profit from the process.

Just remember to be diligent and firm during the entire process. Know what your car is worth, and chances are you will get a good price for it. Make sure that you understand the mechanics of the car, because you do not want to appear like a car novice to a salesman.
