My Car is Old and Damaged! Should I Repair or Sell for Cash?

My Car is Old and Damaged! Should I Repair or Sell for Cash?

If your car has been in the shop more often than your driveway or the road lately, maybe it’s time to decide whether you should keep spending on car repair or sell your damaged car for cash to get a new one. A common mistake that many car owners make is holding onto their damaged car for too long.  Not only does a junk car take up space at home but it can also be very expensive to maintain that it may no longer be practical to keep it. 

If you’re still on the fence about whether you should let your four-wheeled friend go or keep it for a while longer, our tips below might help you decide.

Signs Your Car Needs to Go 

It’s hard to let go of something that has sentimental value for you but if your old car manifests the following signs, it may be best to sell your damaged car for cash instead of keeping it: 

1. Your car repair bill is piling up. 

Typically, the older a car gets, the more maintenance and repair it requires. More parts need to be replaced or fixed over time as well making your costs for car repairs balloon. Compare the total amount you’ve spent on getting your car fixed to the value of your car. If your car repair expenses exceed what your car’s worth, sell your damaged car for cash rather than losing more money by keeping it.  

2. You’re anxious about your car breaking down at any time. 

If driving your car makes you fearful that it might stop in the middle of the road or not perform crucial functions, it may be time to say goodbye to it. You are potentially putting yourself and others at risk by forcing them to drive a damaged car. If despite your best efforts your car still feels unsafe, sell your damaged car for cash to buy a new one instead. 

3. Your car doesn’t meet your needs anymore. 

People’s needs change all the time. If your old car used to support your family of three well enough before but now can barely accommodate your family of five, consider replacing it already. If it feels uncomfortable to ride your old car as well, you should definitely take it as a sign that it’s time to sell your damaged car for cash.

How To Sell Damaged Car for Cash 

Just because you no longer see value in your car doesn’t mean that others feel the same way. Many other people will take an interest in your car for certain reasons. If you’ve made up your mind to sell your damaged car for cash, consider selling to: 

1. Car Enthusiasts

Many car collectors sought vintage car models to keep as part of their collection or salvage rare parts that are no longer being manufactured by car companies. The downside of selling your old car to hobbyists or enthusiasts, however, is that the selling process may be lengthy because certain requirements like your car title may be required. Not all car enthusiasts will pay for your damaged car in full cash as well so make sure to consider that. 

2. Car Parts Marketplaces 

No matter how bad your car looks on the outside, chances are it still contains some valuable car parts that can earn you good money. If you have the tools and know-how to pull your car apart, remove the usable parts from it and sell them individually online or to car owners you know. This option, however, is very time-consuming and labor-intensive making it not the most practical way of selling your car. 

3. Junk Car Buyers 

If you want to get rid of your old car and make money fast, selling it to a junk car removal company is the best option. You won’t have to go through a lengthy selling process anymore as they typically don’t require car titles for your car to be purchased. You also don’t have to break your car down into parts; junk car buyers will buy your entire car and take care of disassembling the parts themselves later on.
