We've built our business by offering superior customer service and a failsafe way to sell a car:
You'll be dealing with a company that recycles as many old cars as possible to limit damage to the environment. If the car is junk we use the parts and pay cash for junk cars to keep other vehicles on the road. Otherwise, we recondition the vehicle, give it a tune-up and do mechanical inspections on it so we can resell it.
Don't wrangle with selling a used car privately when there is a better, quicker and less stressful solution; Do you want a parade of strangers at your home? Even before that, you'll have to organize all the mandatory requirements for a private sale: compliance with roadworthiness; smogging the car for emissions testing and certification; getting registration transfer forms. Advertising can be expensive. Then you'll have to ask an interested buyer to pay cash up-front or delay the sale because they have to organize a bank check. So much of your time is taken up with negotiations - and the deal could even fall through. Private buyers often come back to complain about something being wrong with the car - we will never have to do that.
Isn't all this enough to send you crazy and cause you to give up and just park the vehicle in your yard and forget it?
Wouldn't you rather be out and about enjoying all that San Diego and its environs have to offer in leisure and lifestyle activities with money from your car sale? Where else can you a sell a car in 1 hour and get cash up-front?
Our central location in San Diego services all these areas:
Wherever you live in San Diego County, we'll make selling your car a breeze!
We pay cash for all types of cars - operating or not. We want to buy damaged cars, not running cars, nice cars, old cars, classic cars, superseded fleet cars and deceased estate cars. The only type of car we can't buy is one that has been fire-damaged. So, what happens when you upgrade one of your cars or have no further use for the old one? It can become a disadvantage to your lifestyle. Converting a disused car to cash makes sense. Pass it on because that car you have no further use for could be somebody else's dream vehicle. Even if your car is a wreck, we'll move it from your yard to ours ' and pay you cash up-front.
Before you attempt to sell your car privately, consider letting us sell it for you. You'll save yourself a lot of stress.
If for some reason we are unable to buy your car from you, for instance if you are located in another part of the country you may want to contact a nationwide company. One company that is nationwide is called SellMax, and on their website they say they can pay you cash for cars. If you find yourself in that situation hopefully that will be useful.
We hope the answers to these frequently asked questions will help you to understand our car acquisition process.

The used car industry in the United States is huge, so we're always interested in statistics. The information in this section has been sourced from an article written by Keith Griffin, Used Car Expert, in the CNW Market Research monthly newsletter.
It is interesting to note that during the period 2000 to 2007, used car sales in the USA were reasonably stable at between 41,620,429 and 44,138,263. From 2008 to 2015, there was a downturn with some years as low as 36 million and the highest in that period - 2014 - registering 41,250,000. 2015 produced a result of 38,276,140, which does not reflect an upsurge in sales in the used car market
These fluctuating results can be attributed, in part, to the recession. Other factors to consider are:
Car manufacturers are making better new cars with improved mechanics, stylish design and interiors. Attractive warranties, such as the Hyundai 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain introduced in 2004 means owners are maintaining and keeping their vehicle for a long period of time.
Manufacturers are also installing more features that would normally be a dealer aftermarket product sold to buyers as an expensive extra - netting the dealer a huge profit. For instance, improved rust protection installed by the manufacturer saves money initially and ensures the body lasts a lot longer - and you haven't had to pay extra for it.
"That's one factor possibly hurting the used car sales that isn't discussed that much. Manufacturers are making better new cars from a mechanical standpoint. Better new cars (in terms of quality builds) mean better used cars down the road"
In the meantime, there is still a big demand for reliable used cars because not everyone can afford to buy a new one. We take pride in being able to service this market by acquisition, restoration and reselling.
