Depending on the make, model, and how many reusable parts it contains, a junk car can be worth anywhere from about a hundred dollars to over a thousand. If you have a junk car on your hands, it’s easy to see why you’d like to sell it. You don’t drive it anymore, and you would probably earn at least three figures by offering it to a professionally operated junkyard.
The question is, which junkyard should you use?
If you live in Lubbock and are asking the question, “Are there Lubbock, Texas, junkyards near me?”, the answer is yes. The Lubbock area has it’s fair share of junkyards that would likely be interested in making an offer for your vehicle. If you need a little guidance on choosing the right junk car buyer, consider the three factors below.
1. Towing Services
Most professionally operated junkyards offer free towing as an incentive to motivate you to sell your junker — an incentive that’s worth hundreds of dollars in towing fees. Naturally, you want to do business with a buyer who doesn’t charge for hauling your end-of-life automobile back to the junkyard. If towing fees would be a part of the transaction, explore others offers.
2. Auto Recycling
A junkyard might be interested in buying your vehicle primarily for recycling purposes. Even if your car doesn’t have many reusable parts, a junkyard can still sell the scrap metal to an auto recycler for a profit. A junk car buyer that participates in auto recycling may more interested in buying a car that has few good parts than a junkyard that doesn’t participate in auto recycling.
3. Price Haggling
In offering a free price quote, and then making a final offer after inspecting a vehicle, some junkyards perform what amounts to a bait-and-switch scam. They make an attractive initial offer, then try to haggle down the price by a significant amount.
It’s not uncommon for the final offer to be a bit more or a bit less than the initial quote, but it should be in the same ballpark. If a junkyard tries to haggle for an abysmally low sale price, cancel the sale, and explore other offers.
