Sell car for parts, pros and cons
If you have the time, and if you have the patience, you can make your best profits by selling your car for parts, or parting it out, the common name for this practice. Just selling the engine alone will most likely net you more profits than selling the entire car to junkyards/wrecking yards. It is entirely possible to make a pretty penny selling the catalytic converter from your junked car, and we could name several other car parts which will net you good money.
However, and this is a huge con, this is a very slow process, and it involved haggling with complete strangers who are looking to save as much money as possible.
Sell car to junkyard, pros and cons
Without a doubt, selling your junked vehicle to salvage yards is a hassle-free transaction. Many times, the junkyard will also arrange to have your car towed to their lot if it cannot be driven. There is no hassle in dealing with the public, no hassle with taking parts off the vehicle, no real hassle at all.
However, you will most likely see smaller profits in doing this. In the spirit of total disclosure, and this may seem odd coming from a salvage yard, but financially you are much better off selling off the parts one by one. There is no doubt this can be a tedious approach, but there also is no doubt this will make you more money, especially if you have a vehicle which is in high demand.
Which option is best for you?
We cannot answer this question for you. This is an individual decision based on the time you have to devote to this project, and how badly you need the money. What we have told you here, in a short article, is the basic truth you are facing. We do not know your financial situation, nor do we know how much free time you have.
