We buy cars in Mankato, MN to save your sanity

Let’s talk about your other options for a moment. You’re probably thinking, “I bet I can get more cash for my car in Mankato, MN” 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 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 Mankato, MN, we expect them to be 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, its 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 Mankato, MN junkyard or salvage yard to buy your 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 car towed back home, you’ll probably just accept that you’ve been scammed and move on. Bummer!

Will I be paid by cash or check?

  • Adrienne's 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
    2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

    "It has aftermarket alloy racing rims. Only one tire is flat from sitting idly. There's the usual wear and tear from seven years of ownership. A couple of Marine Corp stickers are stuck on the back window. The encasement for the anti freeze cracked causing a chain reaction of liquids to flow into the engine, causing the engine to seize. I could not afford a new engine. It has been sitting since February."

  • Jeremine's 1994 Mercury Sable
    1994 Mercury Sable

    "The reason why the car doesn't start is that it needs a jump. The last time I drove the vehicle, I left the hazard lights on and it drained the battery."

  • Ivy's 1993 Toyota Corolla

    "The car still starts and is drivable, but due to a collision to the passenger side, the whole right side is pushed in. I'm tired of seeing it in front of my house. "
