What is the value of my vehicle in Durham?

Today's average value for vehicles in Durham, North Carolina is around $286 with free towing. If you have a full size pickup like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is at $357, but is only $243 for small and mid-size cars like a Nissan Maxima. Obviously, your vehicle's exact offer depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell your vehicle at auction, it's worth more than junk values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Scrap offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Does the vehicle work correctly? Vehicles with working parts are often worth more money.
