2 Ways To Get Rid Of Your Old Car

If you are buying a new car, you may have an old junker trying to figure out what to do with it. There are a number of ways that you can get rid of the car. Which one you choose can depend on what is available in your area and on your own personal preferences. So, what are some of the options that you have open to you so that you can get rid of it?

Donate to Charity

One thing that you can do is donate your car to charity. Not all charities are set up to accept cars. If they are set up to accept cars, they may have certain rules governing what kinds of cars they will take. Those rules can vary, depending on what the charity does. For example, for a charity that takes cars, fixes them, and then gives them to low-income people, the cars that they accept might have to meet certain functional requirements. But a charity trying to fundraise may accept a non-functional car because they can translate that car into money. 


You can sell your car in a number of ways. If your car is a junker, you can find companies that will be happy to buy your old car. Generally, they are buying cars so that they can sell them for scrap metal or parts. You will get less for your car than you would if it were in good shape, but you are also going to get more than you would get if your car were to just sit around in your driveway. The nice thing about selling your car this way is that the companies will generally come to your house and haul it away for you. All you need to do contact them and be home to sign paperwork and turn over the title to the junk car company. You may be able to negotiate with the company that is buying your old junker as to how much they will pay you for your car. It never hurts to ask about negotiations; just make sure that you are keeping your negotiations reasonable.
