How to Sell Your Totaled Car for Cash

The most significant factors that will determine what price you will get for your junk car include the local market conditions, the condition of the car, mileage, and make of the car.

Your car values could also be impacted by what areas of the car have been damaged, whether it has a clean title, rebuilt title, salvage title or if any parts are missing.

Truck Values – Trucks tend to be valued differently from passenger vehicles and sedans. Given that trucks tend to have a longer life, they can have similar mileage to a sedan but still be valued relatively higher.

Mileage and how it Impacts the Car Value

The average standard for a car is to accumulate approximately 12000 miles every year. If you have a junk car that you need to sell just take the number of years since you got it, then multiply that by 12000. The maximum number of miles put on a car in a year is typically 15,000. If your car has more than 15,000 fewer people will be willing to pay the market price compared to same year model that has fewer miles.

Trade in Car Values

When you intend to trade in your car, you may find that the cost for doing so is significantly different as compared to when you are donating or selling the car. The thing is most dealers will try to give you a worse price since they will be trying to make up for any losses on the trade in while also upselling you on the new vehicle you are getting. Moreover, junk cars that may break down at any time or require expensive maintenance do not fetch very good prices.
