Selling Car Parts

You can make decent money by selling old automobile parts. Let’s look at how to do this well.

The Parts Need to Work

Before you try and sell your parts, you need to make sure they’re tested. Test the parts you have to sell and throw out the ones that are broke. For example, if the tires don’t have any treads or have cracks in them, toss them out.

If you have a CD Dash that doesn’t work, don’t try and sell it.

Don’t sell something that’s broken. You’ll waste your time if the part you’re trying to sell is almost done.

Prices range for items. It depends on how old they are and what brand the part is. Car stereos sell from $5 to $150.

The parts don’t have to be perfect. Tires with decent treads are often sold for a great price. Let people know if the parts are already tested. People will feel more secure knowing the parts are ready to use.

Selling at Pawn Shops

Pawn shops will either make you an offer or a loan. They need to verify that the parts work and have a decent resale value.

Old and used alternators aren’t attractive to pawnbrokers. New parts that are in demand and popular are always welcomed at the pawn shop. They know they’ll have no problem reselling the parts.

How to Get a Good Deal

Clean the car parts before bringing them to the pawn shops. Try and make them look as new as possible beforehand. The pawn shop will have an easier time selling an item that isn’t covered in grease and oil.

If you can, bring some documentation with your car parts when you go to the pawn shop.

Not all pawnbrokers will see the difference between certain automobile parts. Some pawnbrokers aren’t professional mechanics. Explain to them how much the pieces are worth and what they are.

Tell them what the model number is of the part and the make. Explain to them what kind of vehicle it goes into if it’s made for something specific.
