It is no surprise that a junk car on your Flint, Michigan property can be a real eyesore. The time and money required to into get rid of your car for the best value can cause a lot of stress and frustration. You can find a private buyer for the car if it still runs, you can trade it into a dealership for credit towards a new car, you can disassemble it and sell individual parts, try to fix it yourself, or you can sell it to us at Junk Cars Lansing.

We will take any junk car off your hands in exchange for saved time, money, and we will even hand you cash to do whatever you please with. We strive to give you the best customer service, price, and experience possible. Let’s go over each option that you have to get rid of your junk car, and why we think that giving us a call is the best choice.
Selling a Running Car
Your car is worth a lot more all-around if it can still drive, and you will likely have better luck selling it if it can drive off your property. If you are able to get your junk car off your hands before it begins to break down further, the cars working parts add a lot of value to the vehicle, no matter where you are selling it.
Finding a buyer for your car takes a lot of work. Many dealerships will allow you to trade in your car for credit towards a new one from them. Dealers can be unfair in their pricing, however, and not give you the price that you deserve. It also means that you are restricted to putting that value towards a new car from that dealer.
Similarly, selling your car to a private individual takes a lot of time to make your car desirable in the competitive used car market. If your car is not in decent shape, it will likely be overlooked for other cars in better shape. Nobody wants to inherit a bunch of problems when purchasing a used car.
Fixing Your Car
Another option that you have is fixing the car yourself. This can be incredibly costly though, and result in you just throwing money away fixing a car that is worth less than the costs to repair. If you can fix the car yourself, you can likely save money, but the time and expertise required to get a junk car running are not something a typical person has to sacrifice.
Scrapping Your Car
If you are willing to put in the time, disassembling your car to sell its parts individually can increase the value you get for your car. Spending the potentially hundreds of hours removing parts, cleaning them, listing them, and shipping them/meeting with buyers is exhausting, and can cause a lot of stress if you’ve never done it before.
Your car contains many valuable metals that can be sold to be recycled and made into new cars. Steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and platinum can all be sold to scrap. Most of your car’s weight will be in steel, which goes for anywhere from $100 to $300 or more per ton (2,000lbs) in Michigan depending on the market value at the time.
