Sometimes, when you have an older vehicle, it can be difficult to determine if it falls under the category of a junk car or not. There are several different factors that come into play when you are trying to figure out whether or not a car is a junk car. Citywide Towing Service is here to talk about what makes a car a junk car.
Vehicle Doesn’t Run
Any car that you haven’t been able to successfully get running again, is considered a junk car. There may be several reasons why a vehicle isn’t running. Maybe it was in an accident that has left it this way, or perhaps old age has left it this way. Often, junk cars that can’t run sit in one spot and don’t move for years before the owners are willing to consider selling their junk car.
Auto Repairs are too High
Many junk cars are in need of repair. If the repairs cost more than the vehicle is worth, many owners will choose to pass on the repairs and are then left with a junk car. It is never worth spending the money to try and repair a car that isn’t worth much. At this point, you are better selling the vehicle as a junk car and getting some quick cash.
Age of Automobile
Just because a car is old, it doesn’t always mean that the car is a junk car. There are plenty of cars out there that are old and are still operating. However, if the car is extremely old and that couples with other issues, you can count on the car being a junk car at that point. Some areas require a car to be at least 5 years old before it can be considered a junk car.
Some junk cars are often missing paperwork. This could include licensing and registration. Anytime you try and sell a vehicle, you need this paperwork. Finding this can mean more time and money for owners. If the owner doesn’t want to deal with these documents, they can sell the car for cash and only need to have the title to the vehicle to do so.
Junk Cars Have Extremely Low Value
When your vehicle has such large issues, it is often not worth much. Many of them can only be sold for a few hundred dollars. Selling it to a new owner can leave you with not much to speak of as far as money goes. You are better off scrapping the car and junking it for cash.
