Sell Junk Cars: Strange Ways to Make Money

I saw a small sign on the corner outside my neighborhood advertising “We buy junk cars” the other day. I started wondering why anyone would want to do this and I soon discovered that it can be a way to make some extra money.

    For many, contacting a junk car removal service is the best car disposal solution. You can contact a local towing company but you’ll have better results using a nationwide car removal service.

    Thanks for sharing this. There are people who absolutely depend on these junk car companies for getting the components. They are used in evolving the vehicle forms which are of same kind. There are vehicles that will be having the longest time-span and they are couple of vehicles that will be needing repair and upkeep matters on an every normal day.

    Scrap car recycling is a great way to deal with your junk car, if you leave your junk car to rust it is hazardous to the environment, so why not saving your environment and earn quick cash from it.

    First of all this is a bad advice!!! You need to do some h.w before you give advice. You can’t just go around offering to pick up junk cars. you need a dismantle # and you can get in trouble with the DMV. yes you can go and take your car to the recycling company but you can’t go around acting like a business and picking up junk cars, thats illegal. That’s why a legit company charges money, bc they pay taxes and they paid for their legal right to pick up junk cars (they have a license to do so). I thought i would just share this.

    Joe, you have it backwards. Companies don’t do licensing because they “pay taxes”, they do licensing so that they don’t have to deal with competition from people like you or I.

    Incidentally, I would be very curious to hear what law specifically prohibits an ordinary person from purchasing a “junk” car.
