When you're getting ready to sell your junk car, you generally want to get the most out of it that you can. But figuring out who will pay top dollar for your junk car could require spending a lot of time comparing quotes — and you aren't necessarily made of time.

Luckily, this article will help you figure out how you can get the most for your junk car.

Places That Buy Junk Cars

There are plenty of places that buy junk cars, but how much they're willing to pay often depends directly on their business model. Find some examples below.


Car dealerships are always interested in accepting vehicles as trade-ins. However, selling an old junk car to dealerships is a bit of a difficult process; dealerships are interested primarily in vehicles that can be repurposed and resold.

Junk cars, therefore, aren’t really in their best interest to purchase. On top of that, they typically provide “trade-in value” over “cash value.” You’ll be getting some dollars taken off of a car they’re trying to sell you, but not money to go spend at another autosales business.

Private Buyers

Private buyers are always roaming the internet and the streets looking for cars to buy, regardless of their condition. Your junk car can fetch a pretty penny, especially amongst hobbyists.

Although that can be an enticing prospect, it can take weeks or months to find the right buyer for the right price. Furthermore, you have to deal with complete strangers trying their best to lowball the price they want to pay for your junk car.

Junk & Scrap Yards

Junkyards and scrap yards are the go-to institutions when thinking about getting rid of a junk car. Junkyards will let customers strip your car for its working parts, before crushing down and recycling the rest.

Scrap yards will pay you your vehicle’s weight in metal. They are beholden to the price of scrap metal at that point in time. Scrap metal prices vary based upon location, time of year, supply and demand, etc.

There are plenty of places that purchase junk cars: dealerships, junkyards, and scrap yards primarily. Private buyers can be found online or on Facebook Marketplace as well.

How Much Money Do You Get If You Junk A Car?

Junk car payouts can vary extremely, but the general average is around $200-$500. Scrap yards will pay for your car’s weight in metal, so heavier vehicles will net a heftier pay out.
