Photo ID is all that is required to sell your scrap car, truck, SUV, or van to Cash For Cars BC. We’ll take care of the rest!

How Long Will It Take to Sell You My Car?

On average, most vehicle purchasing transactions can be completed in as little as 20-30 minutes, from start to finish.

How Long Will It Take to Sell You My SCRAP Car?

Approximately 5-10 minutes from the time our tow truck driver arrives to the time he leaves with your vehicle. Instant cash offers are made over the phone prior to arrival, so this helps to expedite the process of selling your scrap car.

Do You Really Pay in Cash?

Yes, unless the purchase price is a very large amount. In that case, we can pay by bank draft, certified cheque, wire transfer or cash at any TD Bank location.

We also offer e-transfer for lower priced vehicles if you’re more comfortable with that form of payment too. It’s your choice!

Can You Buy My Car Today?

Yes, depending on your availability and ours. As long as we are not fully booked, we will come appraise your vehicle in person the same day and present you with an instant cash offer on it.

When selling a scrap car to Cash For Cars BC, we can also come the same day if we aren’t completely booked. Our scrap car removal services are just as flexible as our regular car buying services, and they can often be available sooner!

Can I Sell My Car If I Still Owe Money on It?

Absolutely, provided that the vehicle’s value is still greater than the outstanding loan amount.

In this instance, we will pay the lender, receive a Letter of Release from them, then pay you the difference between the loan amount and the price that we have agreed to pay to you when we buy your car.

Do You Buy Vehicles Under Lease?

Yes, we do. If you’ve tried selling your car or tried to find someone to take over your lease but were unsuccessful, talk to Cash For Cars BC.

We are always happy to consider lease takeovers depending on how much time is left on the term, whether or not there have been deferred payments, and what condition the vehicle is currently in.

Do You Buy Vehicles with Collision Damage?

Yes, we do. We buy cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans with minor to major collision damage. We even purchase ICBC write-offs!

Do You Buy Cars with Mechanical Issues or Electrical Problems?

You bet we do! When we say, “from scrap cars to Supercars”, we mean it! We buy vehicles that need repairs of any kind, and with any kind of mechanical failure or electrical issues.

Does My Car Need to Be Running Before You’ll Look at It?

Absolutely not. We purchase scrap vehicles and even older vehicles that are not quite scrap but may have their age and minor issues stacked against a quick sale of them. If we are interested in buying your vehicle, we will handle almost anything that comes along with it.

If I’m Moving & Still Need My Car Before I Leave, Can You Accommodate That?

Yes, we most definitely can. This is one of the things that our customers love so much about Cash For Cars BC. We buy many vehicles from people who are moving out of the province or out of the country, but still need their vehicle right up until a day or two before they leave.

We can come out to appraise your vehicle beforehand, then schedule a pick-up date and make a firm cash offer on your car ahead of time. Sellers are always thrilled when we show up precisely as agreed, and with the exact amount of cash that we’ve offered. NOBODY Pays More!

How Much Is My Car Worth?

Every vehicle that we buy has a different value because they are all different in a variety of ways. However, nothing stops us from paying the MOST cash for cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, and motorcycles.

The condition and age of your vehicle, market demand, mileage, options, and colour will determine the value. We appraise your vehicle in person, then make you an instant cash offer right on the spot after seeing it and getting all the details.

This is why we can almost always offer more cash for cars in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and Vancouver Island than any other used car buying company, online car buyers, or dealerships.

Won’t I Get More for My Vehicle if I Trade it In?

Not a chance! We buy the cars and trucks that people trade in to new car dealerships every day. And here’s what happens:

You decide to buy a newer car or truck from a dealership and trade in your vehicle. The dealer is asking $19,900 for theirs and you say you want $6,000 for your car – they agree to give you $6,000 but hold firm on their asking price of $19,900.

The dealer then calls their contact at Cash For Cars BC and tells us that we can buy the vehicle that you just traded in for $5,000. So, how is this possible? They gave you $6,000 ON PAPER ONLY.

When in reality, they only gave you $3,000 and sold it to us for $5,000, making themselves a profit of $2,000. Had you called us first, we would have gladly paid you $5,000 for your vehicle, putting an extra two thousand in your pocket. NOBODY Pays More!

Does Cash For Cars BC Really Pay the MOST Cash for Cars?

We sure do! WE ARE NOT A USED CAR LOT; our unique business model enables us to pay more than any other dealer in BC for your vehicle. Our focus is on buying cars, not selling them.

So, when you sell your car to Cash For Cars BC, you won’t have to deal with a hidden agenda that you’ll usually find at local dealerships or with online car buyers.
