How Junk Car Prices Are Calculated
There are a variety of factors when making an offer for your junk car. The location of the car, the salvage value of your car pre-accident, the extent of damage or mechanical and electrical problems, the current market demand for your vehicle and its parts, its make, model, mileage and age all play a part in determining the value.
For example, some oldies, like a 22-year-old sedan that doesn’t start or run, won’t get the same offer as others, like a low-mileage three-year-old sports car with collision damage. Some vehicles fall near the center of the spectrum, like a high-mileage ten-year-old SUV with electrical problems.
We pay more for complete vehicles. The vehicle needs to have its engine, transmission, wheels and doors. Also, we need the catalytic converter. Any missing parts could reduce the price we offer.
The exact dollar amount for a junk car depends on current scrap metal values, which can change throughout the year and depending on your location. It can be difficult to predict ahead of time what your vehicle is worth, but you can find out by requesting a quote.
We buy vehicles that have been declared “totaled.” Totaled means the damage to your vehicle exceeds the book value. We also want cars with flood or fire damage. If your car is totaled, contact us to find out how much the damage will impact the price.
There are no “book” values for damaged or salvage cars, but at “Sell My Junk Car Fast” we have over 10 years experience in buying less-than-perfect vehicles. We strive to provide the best offer to every customer.
