Before I Sell My Non-Running Car To A Junk Car Dealer, Should I Repair It?

You’ve decided to finally get rid of that old run-down junk car that no one uses and is just taking up space in your yard. You want it gone but also want to get some money for it. If you repair it and get it running, you figure you can get more cash. But will it be worth it?

That’s a difficult question to answer. It all depends on the age, condition, and general worth of the car and of course, the cost of the repair. In short, you will have to weigh the amount of money you will have to spend on the repair against the amount you will gain in the sale. And that’s not always easy to calculate.

Repairing a non-running or wrecked car can be expensive. And it always seems that one repair leads to another. When the mechanics start looking closely at your old car, they may find many problems that need to be addressed. It’s easy to get caught up in a vicious cycle of throwing good money after bad. And don’t forget the time and effort in getting the car repaired.

If you do decide to proceed with repairing the car and get it running, you will find that you have more options. For example, you can also get quotes from used car dealerships. Once again, remember that contacting and dealing with these multiple options is time-consuming and full of hassles. It may or may not be worth it in the end.

When the junk car dealer evaluates your car and decides what it is worth to him, he looks at what it will cost him overall. He may have towing or repair expenses. He will gauge what his best course of action will be in order to make the most money for his company. Will he be able to sell it to a new driver or will it have to be sold as scrap and parts? All of these estimations go into his offer to you.
