Okay, let’s get to it.  How do you make money fast and easy at auto salvage yards?

Auto salvage yards buy cars.

Yes, salvage yards (wrecking yards) purchased wrecked or “not functioning” vehicles from the public. This is one way they can increase their inventories of used car parts.  How much they will pay for your vehicle is a matter of guesswork and impossible to answer in an article like this.  Your best plan of action is to do a Google search of “salvage yards near me” and ask them for a price quote for your vehicle.  In most cases, even if your vehicle is not running, the salvage yard will have it towed to their facility.

What you need to sell to auto salvage yards.

There are two things you need to sell a car or truck to a salvage yard: you need a good title, stating that you are the registered owner of that vehicle, and after you sell it you will need to report that sale to the DMV in your city.

Which leads us to the next question: what if you no longer have a title to that vehicle? If that is the case, and it happens more often than you might think, simply contact the DMV and request a replacement title. It generally takes a few days for the request to be processed, but it is standard procedure and should not be a problem.

Is this your best way to make money?

The answer to this question really depends upon the condition of your auto. Truthfully, if your car or truck is in decent condition, and you have the time and the desire, you can make more money by selling your car’s parts, piecemeal.  This process will take some time and effort on your part, which is the main reason most people simply sell to a salvage yard and be done with it.  Still, we would be less-than-honest with you if we did not point out this option.

For a quick and simply solution, however, nothing beats selling your vehicle to a salvage yard, the kind of same-day solution most people opt for when their car is no longer operating.
