Challenges of Selling a Crashed Vehicle

If you choose not to repair your vehicle, then you need to somehow get rid of your wrecked vehicle.

This can be quite a challenge if the vehicle is not actually running and even more-so if you have a loan balance on that car.

When you finance a vehicle (more commonly a used vehicle), especially for long amortization terms, there is a chance your car could break down before you’ve paid it off.

If this is the case and your car broke down before you finished paying it off, you can either scrape together the money to fix it and continue driving your car or you can sell your car as is.

Unfortunately, because the car isn’t running, you may need to sell it for less than what you owe.

Selling to a dealer will be challenging in this scenario because the car is visibly damaged.

Most dealerships will not take a trade-in car that is not running or is wrecked and if they do, they wont give you much for it.

So What are my Options for Selling a Crashed and Wrecked Car?

Here are a few options for selling your wrecked vehicle:

  1. Sell privately as-is online via sites like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. There may be a chance someone is looking for a car like yours. Just remember this process can take weeks, months or more and you need to commit to meeting with potential buyers.
  2. See if any dealers in your area accept wrecked or non-working cars as trade-ins. Unfortunately, you may be calling a lot of dealerships because most of them only want running vehicles.
  3. Sell it to a junkyard or scrap yard. If you decide to do this, they will only pay you for the parts that they feel they can re-sell. Usually they pay very little and will haggle you.
  4. Sell the car for parts – basically dismantle your car and sell it piece by piece. You can make more money this way but it will take a lot of time and effort.
  5. Sell your car as-is, for Cash and walk away from the problem quickly.
