3 Reasons To Junk A Car You Haven't Fixed Up Yet


If you have a junk car on your property you're thinking of fixing up but you haven't done so yet, it might be time to think about selling your junk car for cash instead. Here are three reasons to consider doing so, so you can put some money in your pocket and take one more project off your list.

You make some decent money

Depending on how you junk your car, you can make a decent amount of money on your car. If it's mainly parted out already, you can junk your car for cash entirely. This can put anywhere from a few hundred bucks to $500 in your pocket. You can use this money to put towards another vehicle or you can put the money into savings for another project.

If this doesn't sound like a lot of money, consider how much money you'd have to put into your junk car for it to be functional, then consider what you'd get out of the car should you choose to sell it in the future. Odds are, the money you'll come out with in the end — minus your time and labor — will be similar to what you'd make on your vehicle should you just junk your car for cash now.

You avoid legal repercussion

Some areas require you to register a non-running vehicle, and if you leave a car on your lot long enough, you might have to pay a fine to the city due to the curb appeal disturbance the vehicle makes. If you want to avoid legal repercussions with a junk car you haven't gotten to, it may be time to junk your car for cash and do a car project another time.

You free up your yard and time

A junk car takes up a lot of space on your property and finding the time to fix up a junk car is exactly why you haven't done the project yet. To make your life easier, free up yard space, add curb appeal to your property, and give you the free time you need to do other things on your to-do list, junk your car instead of waiting for a day to start fixing it up. If you still want a project, consider parting out your junk car before you sell it for cash to make a bit more money on your investment. Auto dealers, junkyards, salvage shops, and recycling shops may all be interested in your junk car.
