Where can I sell a junk car? Stolen recovery, burned, or wrecked car near Minneapolis, MN?
If the junk car your trying to sell is unable to run and you have no easy way to tow it your best bet is finding a junk car buyer like Brian Poland with MN Roadside Assistance LLC. If you have the means to dolly it or bring it to the metal yard then your probably handy enough to strip the valuable parts off the engine and body to sell those separately. Typically towing companies like MNROADSIDE.COM will strip the valuable parts then take the remains to a recycler in the hopes there will be some profit made by removing parts and reselling them. Most vehicles have a main catalytic converter that is found between the muffler and engine of the vehicle. This should be taken off, unbolted or cut off with a saw. Additionally check the engine, there are 1 or 2 pre cats found on the sides. Normally you can unbolt the top side of the pre cat under or over the top of the engine, and these pre cats can be sold for $50 – $150 each.
