How to Get the Most Money for Junk Cars


When selling anything, you want to ensure you are getting the best price possible, even if it’s that junk car taking up space in the yard. To get the best most money for your junk vehicle, it will need to be in one piece. A complete junk car will be worth more, and at Pull-A-Part we pay cash for junk cars. Then we crush 'em flat and send them off to be recycled.

At Pull-A-Part, we pride ourselves in having the best customer service in the industry. If you call to talk to one of our junk car buyers, we’ll answer any questions you have and schedule a time to come pick the car up for you, usually within the next business day. You can even get cash for cars without title fast, the day we come to pick up the vehicle, and we pay top dollar for complete used cars.


  1. To get the most money for your junk car, it has to be in one piece. We buy COMPLETE junk cars – that guy in the picture is doing it wrong. Our junk haulers won’t tow your vehicle if it looks like this.

  2. In addition to making sure your car is all in one piece, you need to call multiple junk car buying companies. Make sure you’re dealing with someone who is giving you the best customer service possible. When selling your car you want to be confident you’re making the right decision, and bad customer service can be indicative of bigger problems within the company

  3. Lastly, make sure you understand your local junk car laws. If you don’t have the right paperwork and someone shows up to tow your car, you could end up with no cash and still have to deal with your junk car.
