Selling a junk car used to be a real hassle. In the past, there were a handful of options, none of them easy. If you were stuck with an old, beat up, rusted out junk car, you could try to sell it through a print or online classified ad. Unfortunately, most private buyers aren’t interested in junk cars. So, more often than not, trying to sell a clunker this way would just result in calls and emails from scammers. Dealerships are even less interested, and offer next to nothing for junk cars (if they offer anything at all).
Meanwhile, junk yards and scrap yards can be challenging to work with. Some of them offer terrible customer service. A lot of them are out to scam you. Even if they’re not trying to scam you, they typically offer very little for your junk car, and frequently charge last minute, hidden fees. They might even make you pay for towing. In the end, trying to sell a junk car on your own was quite a challenge. That is, until we started Rusty’s Auto Salvage, and made selling your junk car easy! Find out for yourself just how simply selling a junk car really is: call us at 888-309-1017.
For years Rusty's Auto Salvage has been removing "end of life" vehicles, more commonly known as junk or wrecked cars nationwide. We promptly remove junk & scrap vehicles to partner locations across the 50 United States who safely part out, scrap and/or recycle vehicles in an environmentally safe manner. With millions of cars reaching the end of their life each year, the environmental impact is potentially devastating to local land and water sources. Safely removing and disposing of these vehicles is key to a cleaner, greener future. Because each junk, damaged or wrecked vehicle has a value as parts or scrap we can offer you cash and free removal. Though rare, late model total loss vehicles can have values as high as $10,000 or more. In fact, later model foreign and domestic cars can be worth a lot more than you think. By enticing you to sell us your junk car we can each profit while contributing to a cleaner tomorrow.

Oh and having a full pocket after we leave isn't so bad either. So give us a call and sell your junk car today!
We all want to get the most for our junk cars but how much can you really expect to get paid by a junkyard or salvage yard. Lots of places off cash for junk cars including your local junkyards. What company you decide to sell you car to can make a huge difference in how much mony you ultimately receive.
A few important factors go into the value placed on a junk vehicle.
Even though your car has steel, air bags and other valuable parts, you should be realistic about its value. Just because you have seen your car offered for sale for lots of money on a site like Craig's list does not mean you car is really worth alot. Most truly Junk cars sell for around $200.00. We often offer alot more than that but if you have a very old rust bucket that does not run and it needs to be towed away for free, you should expect an offer in the $100 to $400 range.
There are a few things you can do to get the most for your car. Firs make sure you have the title. Some states allow us to buy junk cars without a title but they can only be purchased for scrap metal. So if you want to hope we can find a buyer who will re-condition and re-sell your car, make sure you have the title and that it is in your name and does not have any leins showing on the title.
We are working on directory of lcoal junk car buyers that we know and trust and will be publishing that list soon. In the mean time use yp.com to find junkyard that by junk cars in your area.
Keep in mind that most junkyards are only going to pay the scrap value for your car. However, we specialize in finding buyers who make a living from reconditioning junk cars for re-sale. So before you sell your car to a junkyard give us a call and get a quick quote over the phone so you can have a strong offer in hand before you go to your local junkyard.
So if you are thinking, "how can I find a junkyard near me that buys junk cars," remember that Rustys Auto Salvage can by nationwide and provide you with a quick quote that will help you even if you decide to sell to a junkyard. Also, Rustys provides free towing and we take care of all the DMV paperwork.
Unfortunately getting the best prive for your junk car requires some basic caution on your side. Your car has some value to someone, the trick is finding that person and making sure they are reputable. Here a few things to watch out for.
