How to Sell Your Junk Car in Less Than a Day

Are you in need of fast cash? That’s something that we’ve all experienced at one time or another. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. No matter how thoroughly we try to plan for the future, sometimes things just surprise us. There’s only so much you can do, and most of us will encounter the need for fast cash as some point in our lives.

The question, though, is this: where can you get fast cash? You’ve definitely thought about it a lot, but you haven’t come up with the answer. In fact, you’d nearly given up on the prospect of figuring out where to come up with some cash. Then, all of a sudden, you remembered: you’ve got a junk car! Why not sell it?

If only it were that simple, right? After all, isn’t selling a junk car a pretty time consuming process? It’s not the sort of thing you can get quick cash out of. On the contrary, you’d need to create an online classified ad -- which involves taking pictures and writing a description -- and then wait for an interested buyer to approach you about buying it. That could take days, weeks, even months. You don’t have that amount of time. Right?

Wrong! Selling a junk car doesn’t have to be hard or time consuming. It can be quick and easy. Let’s take a look at the most common ways to sell a junk car, and determine what the best way is to get cash for your clunker in less than 24 hours.

Selling to a Private Buyer

As we just mentioned, selling your junk car to a private buyer is an option. And, it doesn’t necessarily have to take weeks or months.

Here’s how the process normally goes. To start with, you’ll need to take excellent -- really top notch -- photos of your junk car. A dim, blurry photo isn’t going to do it. These need to be really high quality pictures that show exactly what you car looks like to prospective buyers. From there, you’ll want to write a thorough description that covers every aspect of your vehicle. Don’t leave anything out, and do your best to answer any potential questions a buyer might have. This will cut down on the number of question you receive. From there, you have to wait for buyers to contact you.

Here’s the thing, though. If your car is in decent shape, it’s perfectly possible to sell it in less than 24 hours using an online classified site. However, if your junk car is falling apart, trying to sell it to a private buyer is much harder. It can still be done, but it’s probably going to take way longer than a day. Some junk car sellers wait for months before getting a legitimate offer on their junk car via an online classified site. So, if you need quick cash and you’re dealing with a genuine junk car, a private buyer probably isn’t the way to go.
