Is it worth it to sell my junk car in Montana?

We buy junk cars in Montana, even if they’re falling apart at the fender. However, we do break down junk cars into three distinct groups when we evaluate how much they are worth:

The rusted out tin cans

Is your car now nothing more than a rusted-out tin can with wheels? Because these cars have little use, for the most part, they’re recycled for raw materials by Montana junk car buyers and junk yards. The size and weight of the vehicle will determine the money we’re able to offer. Generally speaking, you might expect anywhere from $35 to $100 from us before we take it to an auto salvage yard.

Those Cars That Maybe Still Have Few Good Parts

Then we have the cars that still have a hope of one day being driveable again. These are cars worth junking, but they might have some sought-after parts. And because they sit in this automotive purgatory, pricing is a bit harder to pin down. However, you can expect these cars to fetch more than ones with rusted-out floors.

Those Rides That Aren’t Exactly Junk

Finally, we have the “This car isn’t junk!” group. These cars could be considered great used vehicles or ones that may only need minor repairs. Because of these cars’ overall good condition, these can be worth anywhere from $200 to $10,000. This is higher than any junk yard would offer in Big Sky Country.

How to sign your Montana car title
