Tips For Geting Cash For Your Unwanted Junk Vehicles

If you have a vehicle that some might consider junk, then you might have thought about how you can "sell my junk vehicle". After all, if it is not in great working order or there is a lot of body damage due to a major collision, you might not think that anyone would be willing to buy it and you will not be able to get anything for it. Before you settle your mind on the idea that you would have to pay someone to take away your unwanted vehicle, you will want to consider the following ways in which you can get some money for it.

List It For Sale As A Parts Vehicle

One way to get some money out of a vehicle that is unwanted and is not able to be driven around is to list it for sale as a parts vehicle. Those looking at your post on social media or your online advertisement will know what it means when you say you have a parts car for sale. It means that the vehicle is not road worthy unless a lot of money is invested into fixing it. You are therefore selling it as is so someone could take what good parts are left and use them as replacement parts for their own vehicle that is the same year, make, and model.

Donate It To A School

There are schools for auto mechanics and for auto body repair that would love to receive a donation of a vehicle for their students to work on. Some schools might be able to pay a couple hundred for the vehicle, while others cannot afford to pay anything. If you end up donating your unwanted vehicle, you can use that donation as a tax write-off. It might not be cash in your hands at the moment, but it is still a financial gain because the donation credit helps to reduce your taxable income.

When you have an unwanted vehicle that is not worth a lot of money, do not give up. You can still get some cash for it, even if it is just a few hundred dollars. That few hundred dollars is certainly better than nothing and it is money that can go into other vehicles that you have or get put towards a vacation or holiday fund. Take the previously mentioned advice and start researching which option will give you the most amount of money for your unwanted vehicle.
