Who Buys Junk Cars

Who buys junk cars? Do your homework before you call Junk Car buyers in Richmond VA.

Are you looking for people who buy junk cars in Richmond?

After over a decade in business, we have seen it all. Junk Cars that have sat for any period of time are often filled with insects that attract mice, and mice, that attract snakes. Old junk cars are also notorious for leaking fluids causing soil contamination. Not the sort of thing you want to keep around your home. Of course, you want to get rid of the vehicle but who do you call?

When picking a company to sell your junk vehicle to, you want to avoid an unlicensed “fly by night” junk car buyer.

  • These buyers do not follow EPA guidelines when recycling a vehicle. Ever seen random tires on the side of the road in south Richmond near the junkyards with no rims? This is a common way for these sorts to avoid tire disposal fees at the scrap yard. We won’t even get started on what happens when they hack a radiator out on the side of the road.
  • They won’t be insured, leaving you holding the bill if they damage something at your home or somewhere else while removing the junk vehicle. Think about underground water/sewer lines, structures, well caps, and mailboxes. You can also be liable for the vehicle if it is not properly secured by the person that bought your junk car and an accident occurs on the road when they are hauling it away.
  • Unlicensed junk car buyers are not tied to Virginia DMV. This means that long after you have sold your vehicle, you could still be getting a property tax bill. If something illegal is done with the vehicle you sold, where do you think the police are going to show up?
  • They can only “legally” sell cars to junkyards and scrap metal facilities in Richmond. People who buy junk cars without the proper licenses have access to fewer resources to make money with the vehicles they buy. This leads to lower prices paid to them, and of course lower prices paid to you. If they do fix the car you sold them and resell it to someone else, guess whose title they are going to use? That’s right, the one that’s still in your name.

I received a call very quickly after I submitted my information through their website. Got everything scheduled for Friday - driver called me 30 minutes before he was expected to be there. Tow truck driver was friendly and we got the paperwork signed easy peasy - then my car was towed away. Great experience, awesome customer service - overall A+++ experience.

I give this company five stars because their service was awesome. I called they we’re out at 8am the next morning. The young man was very professional and pleasant. I gave him the title to the car, he gave me $400 cash and removed my daughter old car which the motor had blown. They made this a quick and easy process. I highly recommend this company.

Everyone I spoke with was extremely nice from the person that answered the phone to give me a quote to the person who picked my junk car up. The quote I received for my car was fair and they were timely with the pickup. If I had another junk vehicle I would definitely contact them first.

I used Roscoe's to sell a vehicle I no longer needed, They were prompt to answer the phone when I called; and set up an appointment in a timely manner. My tow driver was Tommy, and he was quick; and very good conversationalist. I was later followed up by a lady named Christine who was very nice, and asked me about my experience with the company, I would recommend choosing this service over other services in the area. 10/10 experience.
