At Cash For Cars Lancaster we believe in giving back to the community that supports us. This is why we decided to start a “cash for junk cars” program which helps to keep broken down vehicles out of local landfills, by recycling them instead. Here’s how it works: if you have a junk car, give us a call and we will make you a cash offer for your old vehicle. If you accept our offer, we will take care of everything. We will tow your vehicle to a recycling center for free!
Frequently Asked Questions
•Is my car a junk car? The definition of junk car varies depending on who you ask, but here are a couple guidelines to help. A junk car usually has over 150,000 miles or is over 15 years old. Junk cars generally have extensive damage to their body, interior, or engine. In short, junk cars are usually un-drivable because they don’t run or because they are unsafe to operate legally. A car could be a junk car simply because it is no longer worth it to fix or because it has recently been in an accident.
•Why shouldn’t I take my junk car to the landfill? Landfills have become the default option for many car owners because it seems easy or because they don’t know there is another option out there. Unfortunately, recent studies have shown that the metal from junk cars can pollute local waterways as it decomposes. This can cause health problems and expensive public cleanup projects. Furthermore, if the junk cars in landfills had been recycled instead, the cost of steel, plastic, and rubber could have been kept much lower. The increase in new car prices could have been lessened as well, because car manufacturers have shown willingness to use recycled metal, cutting down on the costs of producing new metals.
•What if I’ve been in an accident? Do you still want my car? If you’ve been in an accident and your vehicle has been totaled, the insurance company may offer to buy your junk vehicle for a very, very low amount. Many people accept these offers because they don’t know what else to do with a totaled vehicle. It pays to check out your options. We generally offer more than insurance companies and will even tow your vehicle away for free!
