by | Jun 19, 2017 | Automotive

If you have a junk car in your driveway not only is it unsightly, it can harbor pests which can pose a danger to you and your family. A junk car in Chicago is worth money, selling it for salvage or stripping it of usable parts and selling them is a good way of getting something out of it. Many people don’t want to take the time to strip the car of usable parts and then try to find buyers; they would rather rely on selling it for salvage and let them take care of it. Before you sell your junk car in Chicago to a salvage lot, there are a few things that you need to take care of.

Establish ownership:

It may be junk but scrap yards and salvage yards cannot take the vehicle off your hands unless you have the title. Long before contacting yards to get prices of what you can expect, make sure you have established ownership.

Shop around:

Take time to call the junk yards in your immediate area, it may pay dividends to call those that are located in outlying areas as well. If the car is drivable you will get substantially different prices. If the car needs to be picked up it will still be worth money although a lot does depend on the make, model, year and condition. It makes it easier when you have a list of what is wrong with the car as well as the specs.

Deliver the car if you can:

If the car can be delivered, perhaps you can tow it or you have access to a car trailer, you can expect to get more for your junk car in Chicago. If the junk yard has to come and pick it up you can expect a lower price but, the best junk yards will pay cash on the spot.

If you have a junk car in Chicago that you want to dispose of you are invited to contact Aero Auto Parts. Aero will pick the car up the same day you call and they pay the best price in cash, on the spot.
