Many people have a junk car on their property that they have been wanting to fix up for a while, that they’ve been meaning to get rid of for a while now, or that they want to take apart and sell. Unfortunately, these things cost time and money that many simply don’t have. That car ends up being a decaying lawn ornament that becomes too much of a headache to do anything about.

We will pay for any junk car, no matter what condition it is in, or whether or not you can even drive it. Let’s take a look at some questions about junk cars, what your junk car could be worth and how easy it is to take off your hands for good.
Should I Fix My Junk Car?
Bringing a junk car back to life is a tough process. It requires a lot of time and money to purchase and replace parts. It is likely that if your car has been deemed junk, the money from parts and labor that would need to go into making it run again greatly outweigh the value of the car. If you are putting more money in than you could possibly get for the car once repaired, it is probably best to give up on the dream of making the car run again.
The problem is that parts wear out with use, and will continue to decrease so long as the car is sedentary. A car’s engine, for example, will cost anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000 to replace depending on the vehicle. It would be more feasible to find a new car for what that would cost you to replace and install along with the many other things that will likely need to be replaced alongside it.
What’s My Junk Car Worth?
Valuable metals such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and platinum can all be found in your car. Depending on the current market value, can add up to quite a bit. Steel, which likely makes up the bulk of your car’s weight, can alone be worth anywhere from $150 to $350 or more per ton (2,000lbs) if the timing is right.
Sending a car to scrap not only gets you cash as a reward, but also helps recycle these metals and provides a more environmentally friendly way to produce new cars for the road because there is a lesser need for new materials to be found, mined, and processed. Your car is not simply rusting away on your property, but being used to make shiny new cars.
