How Much is My Scrap Car Worth?

Without a doubt, our most commonly asked question; how much is my junk car worth? Even though most people have been hanging on to their junk vehicle for years and years, when they do finally decide to sell their scrap car, they want to be sure they are getting the most money possible for it. So, how do you know what it’s worth? Well, that’s a tough one to answer because there are so many factors to consider when giving our customers an offer. There are ultimately 3 categories that we, as professional scrap car buyers, place vehicles in upon initial assessment. Allow us to explain.

Cash for Scrap Cars in Any Condition

So, here is a breakdown of the ways we simplify the categorization of your junk automobile. This helps us establish what we’ll be doing with your scrap car once we buy it from you. So, take a look at the following information and consider for yourself which one of these categories your used car, truck, SUV, or minivan fall into.

Scrap Cars Beyond Repair

This is the “nothing left of it” category for old, rusted-out, dead like a doornail junk vehicles. Cars that have more rust than body paint, more damage than not, no wheels or engine, or even a gutted interior. Vehicles that have a blown transmission, major electrical issues, or any kind of repair totaling more than the value of the vehicle itself, would be in the category typically. It has more to do with the condition of the entire vehicle itself though, more than it is what’s wrong with it. We tend to buy these kinds of scrap cars for anywhere from $0 – $250, depending on the vehicle’s weight mainly.

So, if you have a junk car or scrap truck that seems like it’s in pretty good condition, aside from one or two particular issues, read on to consider if your scrap car might fall under the next category instead.

The Middle of the Road Vehicles

The used vehicles we typically lump into this category are the ones that we briefly touched on above; older vehicles with one or two issues, but otherwise not too shabby for their age. These types of junk cars often have components that can be reused, parts that are sought after, and many other items that can be repurposed if not resold. Instead of sending these vehicles straight to the scrap yard, we work with local metal recyclers to have the valuable parts removed and the rest disposed of or recycled in an environmentally and ethical way. We usually pay a little more for these kinds of scrap vehicles, even though there is more work involved on our end to have them taken apart before their destruction.

It’s Old, but it’s Not Junk Used Vehicles

At More Cash For Scrap, it’s easy to guess where we get our name from; by paying MORE cash for scrap cars. But don’t let our name mislead you. Just because we’ve made ourselves famous in the Lower Mainland by buying scrap cars, junk trucks, old SUVs, and worn our minivans, doesn’t mean we don’t buy other types of used vehicles.

If you’ve got a used vehicle that’s in good condition, or even great shape, we buy those too! Your used vehicle doesn’t have to be older either for us to pay you MORE cash for it. If you have a newer model vehicle that you’re wanting to sell for cash, we pay anywhere from $100 – 100,000 for those too. Even higher end models of cars like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Cadillac, and Tesla. As experts in the used car buying business, we’ve been buying vehicles of every kind since 2005. This makes it easy for us to buy vehicles and sell them at auction or to local dealerships. You get paid more for your used car, and we give back to the local economy. It’s win-win.
