Junk Car Selling TipsBelow are some tips to assist you in getting the top dollar you deserve for your junk vehicle:
- Any random guy can start buying junk cars. You could even begin to purchase junk cars if you wanted. Legally, in Texas, you can only sell five cars a year without an auto dealer’s license. To get the best deal for your vehicle, you will want to eliminate the middleman and going to the top. Your best way to do this is by investigating their business. If a junk car buyer only has an ad on Craigslist or a small, poorly designed site, they are more than likely a middle man. Most important, they will give you less to make a profit, most of the middlemen or not licensed.
- Make sure the junk car buyers have a website! If they do not have a website, they are more than likely an unlicensed middle man. This means they will give you the least amount possible to make a more significant profit. Most of these are not licensed by the state, which means they can’t turn your title into the state.
- A website is so crucial in this day and age of technology. Websites are cheap to make or have made. Web sites help a company establish a permanent presence. A company without a website is a company trying to hide something. Web sites help potential customers know how a company is run, where it came from, and its heading. Junk car buyers without a website are usually unlicensed “bandit junk car buyers.”
- Watch out for scams and tricks that fly by night; unauthorized, junk car buyers will attempt to pull. One of the tricks is that they will agree on a price over the phone than their story or price once they arrive at your vehicle. Before purchasing your junk car or truck, they will tell you your vehicle is missing the catalytic converter or the vehicle is not described the way it is. This junk car buyer will then go down on the quote they gave you over the phone. The new price will be far less than the price they gave you over the phone, which you agreed upon. FYI your catalytic converter is located under your vehicle before your muffler. Bandit junk car buyers depend on people not knowing where or what a catalytic converter is. They figure even if you do know what it is, they rely on you not wanting to crawl underneath the vehicle to look. A lot of people would instead save the hassle of looking and take the lower offer. Watch out for this widespread trick.
- Many bandit junk car buyers will quote a price for a car when they show up; they will deduct the amount of towing from the final cost. If they planned on removing the cost of towing from you, they should tell you this over the phone. This is a very deceptive practice that is going around. They are buying your vehicle; it is theirs. Why should you pay to tow their car? If they try this, tell them to know and call us! We never charge for towing! You will receive 100% of what we say to you over the phone!
