For how much can I sell my car in Colorado?

The chances are that your car is probably worth far more than you think it is, especially if you’re basing your quote off of a Colorado auto salvage yard. We pay cash for your junk car in Colorado and strip all the valuable parts for sale before crushing the vehicle for scrap. Our process allows us to offer you far more than you might expect, depending on the condition of the car:

Real that’s beyond repair

If your car is a piece of with no valuable parts, it’s only worth the value of its scrap metal. These are the kinds of cars that most of us think of when you hear the word “”, a rusted out shadow of its former self that would be impossible to repair. These vehicles are typically priced based on their size rather than parts, and you could expect to be paid between $50 and $225 for a vehicle in this condition. We’ll even pay cash for cars with no titles whenever possible.

Vehicles with some valuable parts

Cars in this category are normally in fairly bad condition, but may have some valuable parts, or they aren’t in the absolute worst condition. We can afford to pay you significantly more money for a vehicle in this condition because the parts hold some value in the resale market.

Not at all!

While some of the cars that we purchase are covered in rust and haven’t been started in years, we also buy used cars in Colorado that aren’t at all. Depending on the vehicle that you own and its condition, you could expect a paycheck between $200 and $10,000. Fill out our offer form today and find out.

    "The title couldn't be transferred due to failure of emissions. The title was open and notarized, but it was signed in the buyer section. It is now a parts car. It's probably a simple fix, I just don't have the time."

  • Garry's 1995 Volvo 850
    1995 Volvo 850

    "I'm junking the vehicle due to not being able to fix the timing issue. It has a bunch of new parts on it such as the radiator, thermostat, water pump, air filter and gas cap. It comes with new spark plugs, wires and oil change supplies. I cannot afford to fix the timing issue. The tires have good tread. Everything on it worked as of three weeks ago, until the radiator cracked and caused the rest of the issues that need to be fixed."

  • Trenton's 1995 Buick Century

    "The vehicle's head gasket is blown, the heater core is broken, and the passenger-side floor is flooded from the leaked coolant. Due to the gasket, the muffler blows out thick white smoke making driving the vehicle unsafe."

  • Ryan's 2005 GMC Envoy
    2005 GMC Envoy

    "The vehicle overheated and the motor blew. I just put $2,250 into it in September for a new transmission, water pump and complete rear brakes. The interior is in great shape. I have no time or cash for a new motor, and I don't want to part it out. It's stuck on the side of the highway right now."

  • Colin's 2004 Mercury Sable

    "I got into an accident. The wheel well on the front right side of the car is damaged. Because of it, I can't open the right side doors. The car runs fine, but the rod that connects the front right tire to the steering is broken."

  • Craig's 1999 Mercedes-Benz ML
    1999 Mercedes-Benz ML

    "The vehicle has only had one owner, it's never been wrecked, and there's no body damage. The radiator has a small leak. The power steering has a small leak as well. There's also a slow leak in the driver-side rear tire. It runs well, and everything works. It is loaded. It has a six-disc CD Boise player, a sunroof, power seats, windows, and the A/C works. It needs a radiator, and some power steering leaks need to be repaired. It was maintained exclusively at the dealership, only. It's an AWD."
