How much can I sell my car for in Delaware?
The value of your car will depend greatly on the condition that your vehicle is in. Even among cars, not all are alike. Some have far more value because they have some working parts in them, while others are only metal frames and therefore are worth far less.
Scrap metal cars
Plenty of the cars that we purchase can hardly be described as cars, they are a shell of their former self and may have no working parts and more rust than clean metal. Regardless of the condition, we buy all kinds of cars for cash as long as they are complete. For these vehicles the only value is as scrap metal, and therefore they will be priced based on their weight rather than make or model, typically between $50 and $200.
If your vehicle isn’t rusted out and deserving of a scrapyard, but isn’t working and has some broken parts, then you could potentially earn far more than for a car. We’ll salvage any parts at a Delaware auto salvage yard from the vehicle where possible, and crush the rest for scrap.
Used rather than
We don’t only buy , we also pay top dollar for used cars that are in any condition. Whether it’s spotless and like-new, or stained and barely operating, we’ll give you a fair price for your vehicle and collect it free of charge, with some cars being worth up to $15,000.

"The vehicle broke down a couple of years ago and was too much to repair. It has sat in my parents' driveway since then. Everything is intact. It may have water damage to the interior from a leaking rear window, and nobody has been inside the truck for a couple of years. It has not been started since then, either. The problem was with the transmission, I think. "
"The motor runs well. It just needs a fuel pump. It needs front-end suspension work, but the car looks really good. It has brand-new tires with not even 300 miles on them, a new alternator and a new battery."
"There's only minor damage on the vehicle and that's to the front bumper on the driver side where it was side-swiped. I'm junking it because we can't figure out why it won't run after everything we've done to try and fix it. "
"The front left H bracket broke off while being driven. I have one week to remove it from the property or get ticketed for a junk vehicle. The front windshield has a crack that's about a foot long in the upper left hand corner. The interior ceiling fabric is also coming off. The underside has pretty extensive rust. The engine has low mileage."
"The vehicle is a former work truck. It was running, but now I cannot afford to fix it. The alternator went bad, and it needs new brake lines. It comes with a ladder rack on the back. The damage to the exterior is not horrific. On the passenger back quarter panel, there's a slash that's about six inches long and a quarter of an inch wide. The bench seat is damaged on the driver side."
"The only problems are that the drive line broke, the front U-joints broke, there's a hole in the transfer case, a hole in the transmission, and when I had the rear U-joints repaired, the mechanic forgot to reattach the emergency brake."
