How to Make a Quick $1000 With Craigslist Junk Cars for Sale

by craigscars


This post will describe how to make $1000 or more selling your junk car on Craigslist.  There are many junk cars for sale on Craigslist and there are plenty of buyers who will give you cold hard cash for your car.  For example,  when I used to live in Seattle, I had a Toyota Tercel.  One day it broke down on the interstate and I had to have it towed to my house.  I was told that the drive belt was broken and that it would cost me about $300 to replace.  However, at that time I just started a new job and was planning to purchase a new car.  So instead of fixing the car, I decided to sell the car as junk.

I went on Craigslist cars and searched for people in Seattle who were looking to buy junk cars.  I have made it easy for people to sell junk cars online through my Craigslist search engine. I will give you an example of how you can sell your car.  First go to this page http://craigscarsforsale.net/search-craigslist-cars.php and type in “Junk Cars” into the make portion of the search field.

Then click on your locations were you want to sell your car — for better results, click on all locations.  Next, for focused results type in “1000” into the search field.  If your car really is junk, then you shouldn’t expect to receive much for your car.  This means you can expect anywhere from $500-$2000 for your junker.  I received $600 for my Tercel.  However, the good thing about this is that I only paid $1200 for the car and used the car all throughout high school and college.  This means, that the car only cost me $600 for 6 years of use.  Not bad at all!  Here are the results that I got for my search.

As you can see, there are many people who want to buy junk cars online.  This is a great time to list your car, or talk to a buyer of junk cars.  Let’s look at a few ads.  Here’s the first ad.

As you can see, there is a buyer who wants your junk car.  They are wiling to pay up to $1000 for your junker and they will even pick the car up for you.  To me, this is a win-win situation.  You can finally get rid of the car that’s been sitting on your property forever and you don’t have to pay someone to tow your car to the junkyard.  Call the person ahead of time to make sure that the terms are clear and legit.  Also, make sure to become familiar with title transfer for your state as the rules may be different depending on the state you’re in.

So if you have a broken down car sitting in your drive, you might want to consider selling it for some fast cash by using Craigslist.
