Has your landlord been hassling you about your junk car? Have your neighbors grown more and more unfriendly the more that your old car leaks onto the driveway or rusts and chips? If you own a vehicle that turns heads in a bad way, you might consider getting rid of it but you may wonder what options you have. Taking your vehicle to the landfill will take time and, if it’s not running, you will have to go through the trouble of towing it. Donating your vehicle sounds good, but you may not have the time to drop it off or the tax write offs just aren’t worth the difficulty. Would you get rid of your junk vehicle if you never had to leave your home to do it? What if someone would come to your home, tow your junk car away for free, and even give you some cash for it?
At Cash For Cars Concord, we will do just that! We started our Cash For Junk Cars program to help people out in your exact situation. We want to make sure that old junk cars don’t end up in landfills and find their way into licensed recycling centers instead. Depending on the type of vehicle you own, you may be wondering if your vehicle qualifies for the program. So, what is a junk car?
Junk Cars are:
- Usually over 15 years old. Older vehicles tend to “age out” of quick fixes. When they break down, it is usually either a major problem or the first in a series of smaller problems. Either way, cars that become more expensive to maintain than they are worth are junk cars.
- Over 150,000 miles. Cars with high mileage counts also suffer from frequent break downs because each part of the engine has experienced a large amount of wear and tear.
- Broken. The junk cars that we buy often have serious external damage that renders them unsafe to drive. This could be the result of one accident or it could be caused by years of small fender benders. Junk cars may also have damaged interiors that make them undesirable to potential buyers.
- Not running. Many of the vehicles we buy are no longer capable of driving. They may have pieces missing or just plain don’t function. In these cases, we will tow the vehicle away for free.
