Selling a Junk Car: Understanding “As Is” Sales

When it comes to selling a car, there’s a lot on your table. You have to find a buyer, deal with online listings and work with tons of unusual terms and conditions. Some buyers won’t be happy with your car in its current condition and will demand repairs, while others are happy to purchase the vehicle “as is.”

If you’re attempting to sell a junk car — in other words, a car that doesn’t run or has severe problems — an “as is” sell is probably your best option. Here’s what it means:

Understanding “As Is”

When someone offers to buy a car “as is,” that person is willing to purchase the car in the current condition that it is in. At Family Car Buyers, we offer cash for junk cars in “as is,” condition which means we don’t ask that the owner to make any repairs or modifications to the vehicle before we make an offer. It is not important to us if the car runs or not, and we’re happy to be one of the few used car buyers in the area willing to come pick up a vehicle if necessary.

A true “as is” purchase has no extra fees or considerations. You shouldn’t be charged any sort of “on-the-top” penalty if your car is in rough shape when you want to sell. If you speak with a used car buyer or cash for cars service that wants you to make repairs or tries to remove “as is” penalties from your offer total, move on to a more reputable and respectable service- Family Car Buyers!

We love cars, all types and conditions, and we understand that not everyone is experienced when it comes to selling a junk car. If you have any questions about the process of selling your used or want to know if your car is sellable please visit www.familycarbuyers.com for more information or to get a quote. We’re not the only cash for cars service in the world, but we do provide the most information and the best customer service.

Process was super easy, Family Car Buyers was available at every part of the process to make sure that everything went smooth. They gave me a more than fair price for my car that had a blown transmission and a flat tire. Glad to have found them and been able to get a great deal! Thank you for your service!

This was our first time selling a used car on any platform. Using Family Car Buyers was a fantastic experience. Professional and efficient from the beginning to the end of the process. They paid top dollar, they organized towing, and I got paid in full immediately. I will definitely sell any other used/junk car to Family Car Buyers in the future.

Family Car Buyers were great to work with in disposing of our car that had been damaged in an accident and written off by the insurance company. They were quick, efficient and very professional, I would recommend their services and deal with them again

Our old car had a couple of problems we didn’t want to bother with fixing, but it was challenging to find the right buyer for a fixer upper. Family Car Buyers was great! Super easy to work with and they were quick to respond. I would definitely work with them again.
