Can You Trade in A Junk Car?

You own a car that doesn’t run anymore and you need a new car. There is a dealership nearby and you need to figure out if it’s possible to get a great value for your junk car from the dealership itself. While, yes, you can trade in your junk car in most cases, you will likely not get the best deal due to the fact that the dealership wants to repair and resell your car to turn a profit. To learn how to get the best deal for your junk car, read on.

Trade In a Junk Car or Sell it?

You can trade in your car to a dealership and they will give you a discount on the next car purchased or they can just give you a set amount of money. Most of the time, the amount of cash they give is a low ball offer. As we said before, they still want to make a profit and they can afford to low ball offers as they likely don’t really need your car to stay in business.

Trading it in maybe yield a better ‘offer’ as in the value might be higher. Say, for example, if they offer you $200 in cash for your vehicle but if you agree to trade it in and buy a new car from the dealership then they will reduce the price of the new car by $300 dollars. In a way, it’s as if you are selling it for $300 instead of $200 whilst purchasing a new vehicle. It can be convenient to take the trade-in offer if you like the brand of the vehicle the dealership offers. However, you would still have to get your non-running car there which would cost a towing fee.

What’s the Solution To Trading in a Junk Car?

Trading in is an option. It’s not a great one but it’s there. While you can also find a local junkyard or a private buyer, there is only one place where you can get the best offer for your junk car that is reliable and fast; WeBuyJunkCarsFast.

The evaluator will ask for pictures of your vehicle. This can lead to your offer being higher due to the confirmation of the condition of your car. You can send the pictures with your smartphone through a text or an email. We know, it’s super convenient and that was our goal! You can accept the offer or just let us know if you don’t want it and we will understand wholeheartedly.
