You love your old car. You’ve taken good care of it, and done all your regular maintenance. You’ve dealt with the bad wheel bearings, suffered through the power steering leak, and replaced the power windows twice. Maybe you even named your car. But no matter how much you love the old girl, it’s time for her to go to the great junkyard in the sky. Whether you’re dealing with a blown transmission, a ruined suspension, or even if you’re just getting nickeled and dimed to death, you need to sell your junk car. But you also want to make sure you’re getting the best possible price. How do you know whether the offers you’re getting are top dollar or bottom basement?
Selling your junk car can be confusing. Uncle Joe may have sold a car or two in his life, so you ask him for advice. Your friend works at a car dealership, so you ask her as well, but neither of them can seem to agree on what would be a reasonable price. You’ve already tried posting your car on Craigslist, but between the scams and the fake offers, it’s hard to know who to trust. Online forums give conflicting advice, and are oftentimes years out of date. That one junkyard has a good Yelp rating, but a few of the reviews are absolutely scathing. How do you get a reliable quote, and how do you know if it’s any good?
Depending on where you live, you may have many local junkyards to choose from, or none at all. It’s certainly worth calling around, but no matter where you’re selling your old beater, SellMax is always close to home. With our national network of tow truck drivers, we service all 50 states. From California to Washington State, from Maine to Florida, and everywhere in between, SellMax has you covered.
When I want to sell a junk car near me, I don’t want the car’s location to be an issue. Cars can break down anywhere, and that’s why SellMax picks up from anywhere. It doesn’t have to be your home. We’ll pick up from your workplace, a grocery store parking lot, or wherever else you’d like to sell your junk car. And we offer free pickup, so you can keep every penny we pay you for your junker.
Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It depends on many factors. There is no one-size-fits-all price for junk cars, but popular models will tend to sell for more money, while less common cars, or cars with few working parts, will tend to sell for less. Since scrap metal prices are relatively low right now, you’ll get a much better offer for cars with salvageable parts than you will for a car that’s going straight to a scrap metal dealer. Believe it or not, the car’s cosmetic condition also matters. Bumpers, trim, and door handles are all in demand, so consider these cosmetic parts when asking for quotes.
Junkyard prices may vary. Generally, local dealers will offer a ballpark figure and try to haggle later, which only wastes your time. SellMax offers quotes online or over the phone, and our prices are guaranteed. The price we offer today is what we pay! No haggling, no surprises. Just cash in your hand.

Many local dealers will refuse to buy cars with no title. We don’t blame them. They’re small businesses, and they don’t want to deal with the hassle. But that can leave you with limited options. Online forums can be dangerous, and local want-ads just don’t get the readership they used to. Fortunately, SellMax is here to help! We’re a national company, so we don’t sweat the small stuff. Even if your car is untitled, we’ll still buy it.
There’s one exception to this. If you still owe money on the vehicle, the title will be in the lienholder’s name, so the balance on your car loan will need to be paid off before you can legally sell it. Sorry; it’s the law.
Maybe you’ve tried selling your car to a used dealer, only to get the cold shoulder . Used dealers don’t have expertise in salvaging parts and selling scrap metal. They’re looking for newer, drivable vehicles they can clean up and sell for an easy profit. We buy any vehicles, and we’ve been doing it for as long as we’ve been around.
Our founders, Tom and Tony, started SellMax back in 1990. That’s almost 30 years of experience buying junk cars! It doesn’t matter if your car was in an accident, is completely un-drivable, or is just too old to fix economically. We’ve seen it all, so we know how to get the best value for every nut, bolt, gear and sprocket. Because we know how to get the most value from your old beater, you can rest assured we’re giving you the best possible offer.
Maybe you’re in a hurry. Maybe you need cash now to put a down payment on a new car. Or maybe you have a hectic schedule, and your local junkyard will only pick up during business hours. Our tow truck drivers can typically pick your car up within 24 hours, so you get paid as quickly as possible.
At SellMax, we understand that even when your car stops running, life keeps going. We’ll get you a quote in mere minutes, and we pick up wherever and whenever is most convenient for you. Why wait? Find out what your car is worth, and get paid fast!
