How to find the right buyer for your junk car
Have you ever sold a car in the past? If so, you likely already have a sense of how time consuming and complicated it can be. You’ve got to create an ad online, work with one potential buyer after another, answer a seemingly endless stream of emails and phone calls, and the list goes on. But, in the end, you may not even sell your vehicle. Or, you could end up getting significantly less than you’d originally planned on. In West Virginia we make selling your junk car easy with good prices and great costumer service.
When you’re looking to sell a junk car, things can be even more challenging. Finding the right person to buy your junk car isn’t always easy. But, if you’re wondering how to find the right buyer for your junk car, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together this quick, simple, easy to follow guide. By the time you’re finished reading, you’ll know exactly how and where to sell your junk car.
Find a buyer online
Your first (and perhaps most obvious) option is to find a buyer via the Internet. This is how the vast majority of people sell their vehicles these days. More often than not, this involves creating an online classified ad using a site like Craigslist.
Posting one of these ads isn’t as easy as it might seem at first. Before you can even get started with the ad, you’ve got to take high quality pictures of your vehicle from every possible angle. Then, you have to write a description of your car that’s both accurate on the one hand, and that encourages potential buyers to make you an offer on the other. Finally, on top of all of that, you have to upload those photos and description, create an ad, respond to emails, answer phone calls, set up times to show your car…on and on and on.
Unfortunately, this can be a highly ineffective way to sell a junk car. The reality is that many private buyers simply aren’t interested in buying a junk vehicle: they’re looking for a car that runs reliably, not something that’s falling apart. So, at the end of the day, a private buyer may not be right for your particular situation.
Selling to a scrap yard
Rather than going with a private buyer, you have the option of calling around to various scrap yards in your area and trying to find one that will pay you a decent price for your junk car. On the one hand, this can be more effective than attempting to sell your junk car online. After all, scrap yards are used to buying junk vehicles, and they’re going to be less apprehensive about paying you cash than a private buyer might be.
Unfortunately, a lot of junk yards are downright scam artists. We hate to say it, but it’s true. They’ll look for any opportunity to pay you less for your vehicle. In the end, trying to work with a junk yard can be a huge headache.
