My Wrecked Car

To Sell A Wrecked Car

Call 913-271-9406

I have a damaged car because I rear-ended a guy on the freeway last night. Everybody is ok, my car, however, my car is wrecked. I survived the accident, but how do I cope with a totaled car? The guy at the towing lot said they could salvage it for me, but I’d still be paying for towing and storage. He said I might be able to find a recycler that will pay me for it. Every day it’s in their yard I owe them money.


The towing and storage for one day already are near 200 dollars.. You do not want to tell them you’ll give them the car as a trade for services rendered (towing, storage) until you know the value of your wrecked car. Some of the time the people at the towing lot want you to believe the wrecked vehicle is worth nothing as scrap. So they get to double dip in charging you for towing, storage and the profit from your wrecked car.

I want to sell my wrecked vehicle to cash for cars,

Once you’ve been involved in an accident, much of your fate is in the hands of others. There is an opportunity for your input, as well as procedures for you to challenge decisions made on your behalf; generally, once your car is towed away, the insurance companies take over. A totaled vehicle doesn’t have to look like a burned-out shell that is smashed flat. What looks like minor damage to an older car is an expensive repair that’s worth more than the value of the vehicle. The same damage on a newer Mercedes might also be a costly repair, but the used car is still worth a lot more money than the repair cost.

The amount of damage is a factor only as it relates to the used car’s value. Parting a vehicle out requires time and a place to store the broken car until it is parted out. A scrap yard (also known as wrecking yard or junkyard) is a place where many wrecked vehicles get recycled. The yard will then keep the car for a while and sell specific parts of the car that is still usable. Once the usable parts are removed from the damaged car, the company will crush the old car and use it for scrap metal. Scrapping a wrecked vehicle is usually the most convenient way to get rid of it, but it leaves you with little financial gain.

Recent Repairs Or Upgrades

Tell the insurance company about any recent repairs or upgrades. The insurance company says your car is a total loss and they want to pay you for it. Take a look and see if there is anything about the condition of your vehicle that is unusual or unique. Bringing that to the attention of the insurance company could enhance your payment. Examples are very low miles and recent repairs or upgrades (oil changes, new tires, etc.). You will need to get invoices for those items. Thus, you will need to prove the cost and date of repairs.
