Sometimes people ask, “How do I know when my car is truly an old junk car?”
Well, there’s no definitive answer to this question, and in some cases it’s just an “I know it when I see it” situation. There isn’t just one single typical type of old junk car, but rather a few different kinds. Read on for some description of what an old junk car might look like, but in the end remember that there’s some judgment involved.
One example of an old junk car is one that has been around for several decades, maybe being passed down through generations. This car manages to keep dutifully plugging along for years and years, but slowly wears down and reaches the end of its useful life, until it becomes just another ’68 Gremlin sitting on blocks.
Another example is a car that hasn’t been around quite so long, but maybe hasn’t been as well cared for, either. Although it’s faithfully served the family for a long time, the rust and repairs have gotten the better of it, and now it no longer runs.
The third example of an old junk car doesn’t really have to be so old. Some cars, despite being relatively new and/or in good mechanical shape, simply wind up in the wrong place at the wrong time. All it takes is one of those fluke fender benders in Manhattan traffic that causes way more damage then you would expect, and all of a sudden that five-year-old Chevy can’t be saved.
These are all examples of what an old junk car could be, but they’re by no means comprehensive. If you are in doubt about whether you have an old junk car on your hands, call New York Junk Car Removal anyway. Our appraisal process will determine how much the car is worth.
We have bought all three kinds of old junk cars described above, and many more to boot, to we surely know an old junk car when we see one.
