We Pay You What Your Junk Car Is Worth!!

What is the best way to junk your car?

Posted by on Feb 22, 2019 in Junk My Car, Junk My Car Queens | 0 comments

If you are wondering what to do with your junk car, get rid of it, don’t hesitate and sell it. One thing you should understand is that selling a junk car is not like selling a normally operating vehicle or truck. A junk car is old and dysfunctional meaning it has fewer options as compared to a regular operating vehicle. Therefore a junk car cannot make the same amount as a proper working vehicle.

When selling our junk car, we must ensure that we get the best price possible from it. One thing you should have in mind is that even the shabbiest junk car has raw materials and therefore any junk car is not worth nothing.

The determinants of the price are:

Weight- The weight of the junk car scrap metals and steel determine the price of the car. It’s important to note that the price of each metal varies as some metals are more valuable.

The demand for parts- If the car parts can be quickly sold, then you will receive a higher price. And if the demand is low, then you’ll get a lower price.

But to get top dollar from the junk, you should consider the following steps:

  • Sell the parts individually. Selling off the parts separately makes the junkyards jo easier and allows to recoup more of the car’s value.
  • Drain the fluids to avoid being charged by the junkyard.
  • Rather than having it towed for you, drive it yourself.
  • Mention everything including the rust and corrosion and broken parts. Honesty plays a significant role in pricing the junk car.

Junk cars & late model wrecks wanted. No title no problem.

If you have an unwanted or a wrecked car that is not in use and neither you nor anyone else is using it, and it happens that you can’t discover its title because you lost it, don’t panic. A car title is very relevant as it the only legal document that can prove you own a particular car. Losing your car’s title does not mean that you cannot sell your junk or wrecked car.

Many car junkers have the will to buy wrecked or junk cars without necessarily being provided with a title. You are only required to provide other documentation such as the state ID or driver’s license to prove that the car was your own and not a stolen one.

An additional advantage is that other dealers, who buy the late models, junk or wrecked have compliance specialists who ensure that the transactions are efficient and painless after notifying them that your registration or title is missing. They organize for duplication of titles from banks or state motor vehicle departments websites. They help in reducing the hectic processes of acquiring new titles for a junk car which has low value to you for that matter.

In a nutshell;

When you don’t have a registration title for a junk car,

i. Speak with the company, agent, dealer or the person who wants to buy and ask their buying process without a title.

ii. Follow the steps they outline and in case they cannot buy one without a title, then move on and contact the next company which includes licensing and registration in lieu of the title.

Things You Shouldn’t Do When Driving an Automatic Car

Posted by on Jan 15, 2018 in Junk My Car Queens | 0 comments

Automatic cars are no doubt one of the greatest inventions in the car industry. Driving an AT car seemed straightforward but there are bad habits that can obviously damage some parts of your vehicle, hence, here are tips that you should remember while on the road.

 

Engaging the “P” only when in complete stop

As we all know, “P” means park and this will only be used when your automobile comes to a complete stop. If you happen to shift “P” while still moving the locking pin could be damage and will cost you repair. The locking pin is a component that is inserted into the gear which is connected to the transmission output shaft and restrain the vehicle from moving forward or backward. Hence, if you place the gear stick into “P” while in motion, chances are the locking pin could be worn out and needs replacement.

 

Never put “neutral” at the stop lights

Some driver thinks that engaging in neutral at the stop lights or while stuck in the traffic can save fuel. But little did they know that this method can wear out your vehicle’s transmission. Putting your gearstick in neutral also gives you lesser control over your car in case any emergency maneuvers are required.

 

Do not engage in “neutral” gear while going downhill

An automatic engine is designed to be fuel efficient (in contrast with other people’s perception) even if the stick is in “D” gear. Shifting in neutral will automatically cut off the injectors and allowing only your wheels to power the engine, which makes you find hard to react in times of road difficulty that leads you and your passenger into pitfalls.

 

Refrain from switching gear without a complete stop

Do not make it a habit to switch gear when your vehicle is not in a complete stop because if you do, your automobile will pause but it will wear out the transmission band, also, you are now allowing your brakes to do the job and that added stress on the motor and mounts. Make sure you totally stop before going from drive to reverse or vice versa.

 

Never launch your car

Some driver used to revs the car while in neutral and then shift to drive to move off at a high speed. This practice is quite wrong as automatic transmission programmed to run at a different speed from the transmission and so if you force the vehicle to do so, this again will wreck the transmission band and clutches.

 

Today, modern cars are designed and programmed depending on its brand and manufacturers. It seems that the whole logic behind inventing an intelligent vehicle is to drive fun and efficient nonetheless, the tips mentioned in this article is your advantage that helps you keep safe and extend the life of your automatic vehicle.
