    Scrap your car vs selling it?

    Suppose you have a 20+ year old beater sedan, w/ like 350k miles. Drives well enough, but a long list of little problems and some cosmetic damage. If you were trying to get rid of it because you got a new car, would you scrap it or try to sell it private party? Not sure what I could get for it private party, 700 dollars maybe? Or just keep driving the damn thing?

    Scrap it. Time is money and the extra time you put in ain't worth the extra couple hundred dollars. Texting and answering phone calls negotiating people flaking etc.

    I'd sell it and let it benefit someone else.

    If I can buy a car for $700 that needs around 3k to fix and drive for the next 200k, id do it in a heart beat. Total for me to drive 200k would be $3700.

    If it runs and drives someone will probably buy it but selling it might be a PITA. Depends on what it is. Sometimes you can part them out and make more than selling them. Guy at my work does it all of the time. Goes to insurance auctions and picks up people unwanted junk cars, sells what is useful out of them and then takes the rest to the metal recyclers. Might get into this myself soon.

    I would not do that unless you were serious about it.

    First, you'd have to dismantle the parts, have a place to store it.
    Second, how does someone find your parts?
    Third, you'd then have to ship.

    Generally selling a cheap car that runs is super easy if you have a clear title.
    Scrap you’ll be lucky to get $200

    For a car that price, trying to sell will bring the cheapest lowballing hagglers around. Just scrap it
    Yes... come and let us make an end of it. It matters not, even cornered, to my last breath... I remain who and what I am. I will not hide, nor tremble, nor beg. Let them come and reckon with fury that is DOOM defiant.

    Whats the car? Whats high on the list of things wrong with it?

    Some people like picking up cheap beaters, putting a little money into them then DD them.

    Also, some people need a car and have really low budgets.

    It's almost always more worth selling privately than scrapping it.

    Some people would rather scrap it for $200 than deal with private buyer and selling it for $500. I personally don't like throwing money away, so I'd sell.
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit softly.

    I know you sell this "as is" but you can never avoid the buyer texting you later about issues he's getting.
    Fuk that, I'd rather scrap it for $200 than sell it for $500 for less headaches.

    Scrap is dirt cheap right now, probably closer to a $100. Id sell it

    Edit: if I got a new car I would get rid of it too. It’s not worth paying registration and insurance on. You could probably get $700. If you put it up for $400, it would be gone within 48 hours

    It depends on what kind of attachment you have to it. For example, my XJ Cherokee is 22 years old and has rust and had been parked for long times due to us doing more to care for my Mom, who passed away 5 weeks ago, than to it. Even though it’s mine and I knew it was time to see if I could........”re-home” the truck to somebody who might have use for it Dad was wanting to keep it and fix the issues (currently has a failed brake hard line), but Mom and I were going to try and convince him we should let it go until she passed, so I wasn’t going to press things and Dad decided it’s staying. I wasn’t going to fight this since it could be a form of therapy (both mental and physical) for him.
