Should I Sell My Junk Car for Cash?

A lot of people often prefer to leave their old wrecked cars lying around their property. Did you know that you can make cash by selling your old car to a junk cars company in Queens? Getting rid of the non-running cars brings so many benefits including:

1. You make quick cash

When you sell the junk car lying around your property you get loads of cash and on the same day. You should expect to get a couple of hundred dollars from the sale. This sum can be used to take care of a couple of things around the house like covering a bill or paying part of your lease, purchasing groceries or processed food supplies, or even paying for a mini-vacation for a couple of days out of town.

2. You save up on space

A car that isn’t running is not useful in any way. It only takes up valuable space that you could have put to use in several different ways. Getting rid of it will give you more space for more important things that you want to store in your garage. Use the freed-up space to store any sports equipment that you might have.

Also, you’ll now have space in your garage to accommodate more cars like when you have guests coming over.

3. Your yard looks much better

Old junk cars are an eyesore when they’re sitting on your lawn. They do take away the curb appeal of your yard and ultimately, your home value. Getting rid of an old car makes your lawn look a lot nicer and minimizes the chances of weeds from growing around and under the car.

If you are planning on selling your home it’s very important that you get rid of the junk as it detracts from your property value.

4. It’s better for the environment

I know you’re probably wondering, “Who buys non-running cars and why how are the cars disposed off?”

Old cars that just sit in one spot for a long time are a health and safety concern as they can cause dangerous chemicals to seep into the ground and find their way into water reservoirs. This poses a huge threat to human life and the environment in general.

Junk cars are either stripped of their parts and fluids for recycling or serviced to get back up and running. All this goes a long way in reducing pollution that’s associated with manufacturing and assembling new parts.

Any parts that cannot be recycled are disposed off in an eco-friendly way.

5. You can replace it with a new one

Now that you have freed-up space and gotten some cash, you can think about getting a functional car. Also, in some places, it’s mandatory for all cars even those that aren’t running to have up-to-date registration. At a glance, this might seem like little money but it makes a whole difference especially since the car is not drivable. Getting rid of your old car helps you save this money and use it on your new car.

6. The old car will get towed for free

When looking for a place that will take your junk car, you need to make sure that they can haul the car away for free. Having to pay for that would cost you loads of money.

If you can’t find a company that’ll haul it away for free, you could also consider finding companies that take free junk cars and ask them to take care of all the tow truck expenses. At the end of the day, you’ll feel relieved that the car is out of sight. Chances are that your neighbors are also going to thank you.


If you have an old wrecked car sitting around your property, taking up space, and gathering dust, don’t just leave it there. Why not just sell it to companies that buy wrecked cars and you’ll have fewer things to worry about? All you need is the car title and you can walk away smiling all the way to the bank.

  1. I appreciate you mentioning that getting rid of it would free up more room for other things you wish to store in your garage. I have two cars, but I’ve only been using one lately. I feel like it is a waste of space since even if I don’t use the car, it is still there and takes up room in my garage. I’ll find a company that buys junk cars for cash so that I may receive money and free up room in my garage.

  2. I can see how selling a junk car would free up space in your garage for other important things. My mom and dad have a junk car that has been sitting in their garage for almost 10 years. My dad has had to park in the driveway the whole time, so I’ll suggest they sell the junk car so he can park in the garage again.

  3. It was fascinating to know that a junk car for cash is a better option since it is eco-friendly. My brother wants to receive cash for his junk car. I should advise him to look for a buyer that offers a reasonable price.

  4. I like how you said that junk car parts can be recycled when you sell it. My dad has his very old car sitting in his garage, and he talked to me about last night about how he has been thinking of getting rid of it. I’ll pass this information along to him so that he can look into selling it!

  5. Well, if one really needs the money, and if the cars are really junk already, why not sell it right? I admire what you’re doing since it’ll benefit those who are considering selling their junk automobile for the first time. I did precisely this!
