You need to think about the varying options you have in Lancaster and the surrounding areas for getting cash for your junk car. You certainly don’t want to get rid of your car for too little and you may not want to have a car junked that’s still able to run. Here are some options to consider:

1. If you’re handy when it comes to fixing cars, you may be able to repair the vehicle for just the cost of parts, allowing you the potential to sell it for more than you may get for junking it. However, the cost of parts may exceed the value of the car itself and in this case, you should consider junking the car for cash. For those who are not mechanically inclined, fixing vehicle issues is not a viable option as taking it to an auto repair shop drives up the cost.

2. Another option is to take apart the vehicle and “part it out.”  Selling a vehicle for parts can be very time consuming and potentially dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.  You’ll also most likely end up with left over pieces that are junk or not sellable. With that said, these scrap pieces may still be salvageable. This means that you can take things off of your vehicle, get a little less cash from a junk car service, and later sell off these parts.

3. Contact a “cash for junk cars” service to pay you cash for your car. To give you an idea of how much money you could get for your junk car, in 2014, the average value of a junk car in Lancaster, PA was $300! This is cash you receive for your junk car and you don’t have to even think of repairs or trying to sell the car for parts.

Getting a quote is going to let you know what you can get for your vehicle and also what you need to provide to get it towed away. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible so that you can receive the most accurate quote. Getting cash for your car is easy! (note that it is best to have proof of vehicle ownership, so locate that title)

It’s also suggested that you clean out your vehicle before you have someone come out to get it. Any valuables left behind won’t be possible to obtain afterwards. If you want to, for instance, take out a newer stereo and put in your older one. However, don’t think that you can strip your car completely and still get a lot of money for it.

There are many options to get cash for your clunker in Lancaster, PA. Use the information presented here to make the best decision for you. Find out how much your junk car is worth, right now!
