Junk cars are those that are no more useful to their owners because they have serious mechanical problems, have been involved in major accidents, and the cost of repairs it to high, or they are too old and inefficient. You can get back some of the hard earned money that you spent in originally acquiring that car by selling it to a salvage dealer. Junk cars can draw in animals that make a home in your car, and are often dangerous for children to play around, as they rust and rot.
Salvage companies make their money from selling the serviceable spares of the junk cars that they buy or sell them to companies that recycle metal. Some car companies can also offer to buy junk cars so that they refurbish them and sell them to people who are looking for affordable cars. You will find such salvage companies in almost all major cities, and you will often find their huge inventories of junk cars in the scrapyards that they maintain, mostly on the outskirts of cities. You can otherwise look for them online, or just drive down to the junkyards and talk to the people there.
Most salvage dealers will offer you cash on the spot, and will even arrange to have a towing company in Detroit tow the car that is now of no use to you, back to their junkyards. It is important that you have the proper records of the car and ownership papers before you contact any junk car salvage dealer. You can sell your car to them even if it is no more in a working condition, as they will often sell the car onward for the metal that it has, that can bring in a substantial sum of money. Most of these salvage yards will have compactors that they will use to reduce your car to a cube of metal that is easier for them to transport and sell. Before they do this, they will remove parts like tyres and other things that have a separate value of their own.
Contact a local salvage dealer and give him the details of your car, the model, the year of purchase and the overall condition of the car. Nowadays you can even send them photographs of your now useless car to them over the phone, and in many cases, they will give you an offer over the phone. If you agree, they will come over with the towing truck, the agreed cash and some paperwork that transfers the title of the car to them. Make sure you have your ownership documents in proper shape, as you will need to handover these to the junkyard owner. If you can contact more than one dealer, you can always shop around for a better price.
A car in running condition can a fetch better price, and if you so desire, you can also sell such a car to charities and obtain a tax write off. You can also dispose of your car to companies that buy old cars and refurbish them.
