Here’s a piece of information a lot of people do not know: auto wrecking yards will, indeed, pay you cash for your non-functioning or wrecked automobile or truck.
It’s true, and we do, at All Import Auto Parts, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with affordable and reliable used auto parts and used truck parts. Call us the next time you want to save money on your car repair.
Okay, let’s talk about making some cash.
What kind of money will auto wrecking yards pay?
This is one of those “it depends” questions. On average, salvage yards will pay between $100 and $500 for a wrecked vehicle, and the amount generally depends upon the make and model of the vehicle, the general condition of the vehicle, and whether or not a particular salvage yard is in need of that type of vehicle. The price can vary from salvage yard to salvage yard in any city, so it would behoove you, the vehicle owner, to call around and find the best offer.
And, if you can’t drive your vehicle to the salvage yard? Never fear! Most wrecking yards will come and tow it for you free of charge. Again, ask about this service.
What is the process in selling to auto wrecking yards?
It really is a very simple process. You need the registration/certificate of ownership, and you need identification proving that you are who you say you are. In most cases that is the entire process, and it can be completed as quickly as a half-hour to an hour.
This process is a process of convenience and hassle-free money. Are there other options, ones which will pay more? Yes, and we talk about one such option in the next section.
Is there a better way for more cash?
With online marketplaces like Facebook Marketplace, and Craigslist, it is entirely possible for you to sell your wrecked vehicle online or part-out your vehicle one piece at a time. Without a doubt you will make more money this way . . . but . . . this process is also time-consuming, oftentimes taking many months to part-out the entire vehicle. And you may not be able to do so, leaving you with part of a car, or part of a truck, and still needing to have the remainder towed away.
We are certainly not trying to discourage anyone from trying this method. It will almost certainly net you more money; we just want you aware of the reality involved with trying to part-out any car or truck. In addition, during that time span of parting it out, that wrecked vehicle will be sitting in your driveway or in your yard, and can become, rather quickly, an eyesore for you and your neighbors.
Those are your options, one of convenience and a little less cash, or one of inconvenience for the sake of a little more cash.
