Let’s talk about your other options for a moment. You’re probably thinking, “I bet I can get more cash for my junk car in Hayward, CA” by selling the car myself. We won’t lie, you might be right! But at what cost? Here are a few things you’ll be dealing with when trying to sell your junk car on your own:
No matter how detailed your ad is, people will be bothering you with the dumbest questions you can possibly think of. “How many miles are on it?”…197,000 just like the ad says. “Can I come take it for a test drive?”…No, the ad says it doesn’t run. You may soon lose your faith in humanity.
Even though you’re advertising a junk car for sale, people will nitpick every single minor dent, scratch, and paint chip to try and get you down on price. When we buy junk cars in Hayward, CA, we expect them to be junk and never hassle you over imperfections.
You’ll run into multiple no-shows and time wasters. “I’ll be there at 6:30pm!” they’ll say. As 9:00pm rolls around it’s clear you’re never going to hear from them again. It’s too bad you just canceled that dinner date and ruined your whole night.
Maybe you think having a Hayward, CA junk yard or salvage yard buy your junk car will be better? That’s what they’re in business for, right? We would probably get carpel tunnel trying to write about all the horror stories we have heard over the years. Here’s a common scam they like to pull: You’ll call them up, give them accurate details about your vehicle, and they’ll give you a quote over the phone. So you have your vehicle towed to their junkyard expecting to receive that amount. What do you do when they hand over a check for $100 less than they said? You’re not going to pay to have your junk car towed back home, you’ll probably just accept that you’ve been scammed and move on. Bummer!

"The only dent is on the roof of the car. All other panels are clean of dents. Car has a front broken spring and one warped rotor. Runs great and looks great."
"Heat and A/C control does not work properly. Rear passenger window does not work. I want to junk it because it's no longer worth putting cash into."
"Missing right headlight, driver front tire is flat, bumper damage front and back, missing back door handles ( but have two black, unpainted door handles for the two rear doors). "
"No transmission, the motor has 76,000 miles, front end damage due to minor collision, and mirror and back lights are missing from vehicle but front lights and rear view mirror are still intact. The engine runs still, just no transmission."
"The car was working, not sure what the issue is. Put a new alternator, starter, and fuel filter in the car. Sprayed sea foam in the air duct, it would start but then stops. Already into it too much. "
"It is drivable but does have an engine problem that was said to be deep like a rod or piston. Mechanic recommended a replacement motor. At that point, it was parked. It had an oil leak that went unnoticed until it was too late. It may have under 100k miles. It has LED mileage and I didn't want to start it up. Turning the accessory on did not light up the mileage. If it is over 100k miles, it isn't by too much."
