We buy junk cars in Cranston, RI 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 junk car in Cranston, RI” 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 junk 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 Cranston, RI, we expect them to be junk 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 it’s 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 Cranston, RI junk yard or salvage yard buy your junk 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 junk car towed back home, you’ll probably just accept that you’ve been scammed and move on. Bummer!

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Anthony's 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
    2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

    "The vehicle was damaged on the driver side door (it was T-boned). The engine and transmission are in great shape. That's the only body damage, and the driver side rear tire is flat due to the fender cutting into the tire. I need to junk it before winter comes."

  • Wes's 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
    2002 Mercury Mountaineer

    "This vehicle stopped running last week after an engine malfunction on the highway. Up until then, everything ran well, and the transmission was rebuilt a year ago. The engine does start up at times, but it can't run longer than a couple of minutes. "

  • Anthony's 1997 Dodge Dakota
    1997 Dodge Dakota

    "The power steering is not working properly, but I have driven it in this condition for years. The reason I am junking it is because the brake line is broken. To repair it costs more than the truck is worth. The clear paint layer is peeling as well."

  • Tanthalas's 1999 Ford F250
    1999 Ford F250

    "The front right ball joints and tie ends are broken, and they need to be repaired before it can be driven. The left side needs replacing per the mechanic. The idle air control valve still functions, but it needs to be replaced, eventually. "

  • Kirsten's 1998 Mercedes-Benz E
    1998 Mercedes-Benz E

    "The vehicle is too expensive for me to fix. The only thing it needs is a radiator and one front fan to run perfectly. The front bumper, the right and left side, are unattached from getting hit while parked. The damages are cosmetic only."

  • Aran's 1998 Nissan Altima
    1998 Nissan Altima

    "I'm junking it because we got a new car. I believe it's a starter issue that's keeping it from starting up currently. We just didn't want to put any more cash into it to see if that's what it is. It has had many items replaced recently (distributor, battery, struts, etc.), so it was pretty reliable before this."
