A little extra cash never hurt anyone. With the holiday season kicking off, it’s always a good idea to have some extra money. Not only will it come in handy if you run into an emergency during the time of the year when your spending is through the roof, but it’s always nice to know you have something to fall back on, just in case.

Exchanging money for your junk car is standard practice. If you have an old car lying around that is beyond fixing or needs thousands of dollars in repairs that you don’t have, junking it is advantageous for your wallet and an environmentally conscious choice to participate in. We touched upon the eco-friendly benefits of car junking here.

Mr. Junk Cars, your local Maryland car junk buyer, will explain how and why you should exchange cash for your junk car this holiday season. Help can come from the most unexpected places, and if there is something our business knows, it’s how to keep our community happy.


Signs That it’s Time to Junk Your Car

Perhaps you’ve recently had a devastating accident or have an old unusable clunker collecting dust in your garage that desperately needs to be towed away. Storing old cars that rust and become health hazards is never a good idea. Thankfully, alternatives like car junking can make vehicle disposal so much easier. Some signs that your car needs junking are:

  • Your car is too old to circulate. It’s probably clocked more than 200,000 miles on the odometer, giving you more problems than solutions.
  • No buyers are interested. Even when the car buying market is blooming, if no one is biting, it probably means your car is too outdated or in bad shape.
  • Repairs exceed your budget. Maybe your car was totaled in a crash, or your transmission and engine are so fried that buying new ones will cost you more than purchasing another.
  • There are safety concerns. Gas emissions are too high, and it drives so unsafely that it’s best to keep it off the road… Or you’re pretty sure it will catch fire the second you turn on the engine.
  • Your car has no title. Titleless vehicles can’t be bought or driven. It’s always best to refrain from engaging in illegal activities.

Make sure you are already aware of the necessary steps to take before junking a car. Using or siphoning your gas, removing your valuables, belongings, and license plates, canceling your insurance, and making sure you’ve contacted a legit car scrapping business are all pre-selling essentials.

How Much Does a Car Junker Pay?

Prices vary from vendor to vendor. They will depend on the condition of your vehicle and the type of car you’re driving. Mr. Junk Cars’ pricing also varies, but usually, we pay the following:

  • Small Cars – US$100.00
  • Medium Sized Cars – US$200.00
  • Big Cars – US$300.00

A scrapped car will not be sold for its market value since junk car vendors don’t resell the car as a used vehicle but use the scrap parts inside to make a profit. That usually only amounts to about 15% of the car’s actual value.

Is Towing Free?

This also depends on your junk cars for cash service. Mr. Junk Cars has a free towing service for all vehicles we plan on purchasing!
