Should You Sell Your Broken Car, Fix It Up or Sell It as Is?

Should You Sell Your Broken Car, Fix It Up or Sell It as Is?

Do you own a broken car? If so, you may be wondering if you should fix it up before selling it or sell it in “as is” condition.

There’s no doubt that owning a broken vehicle is frustrating but before you spend your time and money fixing up there are several points that you should consider.

Assess the Damage

The first thing to do before selling a broken car is to assess the damage to determine if the vehicle is worth fixing or selling in “as is” condition.

Depending on the type of damage, the vehicle may be worth fixing but you’re going to need a full, comprehensive quote to determine the total cost of the repairs and if you should scrap the vehicle instead of spending the money to get it fixed.

Another thing to consider before fixing a broken vehicle is if the amount of money that you’re going to put into the vehicle will be worth the investment.

Let’s say that the Blue Book value on your car is only $1500 and your vehicle needs $2000 in repairs, in this case you may be better of selling the car for scrap rather than holding onto it because the vehicle will still only be worth $1500 after you repair it.

Scrap the Car

Ready to scrap your vehicle? This is a smart decision to make because even though your car may not be running, there are still parts on the vehicle that may be worth money to a collector.

When selling your vehicle for scrap, you can either sell it to a local junk yard for scrap, sell the parts off your vehicle individually or contact a company like Cash for Cars 24 to pick up your vehicle and haul it away.
