I just wanted to get rid of my car. It had served me well for 2 and a half years, but I had driven it very hard. I was ready for a change. I was running it with a leaky
radiator; I would often to carry gallons of water in the car just to get from point A to point B, and the motor suffered immense damage. There was only one good tire left
on the car, and it was the temporary "donut" tire. I had rear-ended another car and left the front bumper hanging on by a weld. Riding around resting my arm on the gear
shift had caused it to start shifting when it was not supposed to. It was time to get rid of the car. I called the local tow yard and that's when the problems started.
First, they wanted to know if I could bring the car to them, which I was unable to do. The car didn't run and I didn't have functional tires. Next, they wanted me to pay
to have it towed to them. I realized that it would cost around $50 dollars and that was probably close to what the car was worth. I decided that it was not an option. I
had no way of getting the car to the junkyard. The conversation concluded with the junkyard employee's statement, "Well, if you can get her down here, I'll give you $100
bucks for her."
Next I looked into trading my car in for a new one. After all, I had paid it off faithfully and it was mine now. But, having re-organized the last few months of payments
and been late on most of them and then shortly thereafter filing for bankruptcy, my credit was wrecked. I started asking around to see if donating my car was an option. I
inquired at work if any of the mechanically inclined technicians had a use for my defunct car, but I couldn't find any takers. I was stuck with a car that simply took up
space and my patience was running out.
Finally, left with no other options, I decided to roll the car down to the junkyard. I called the junkyard and to my surprise, the owner was actually glad I called. His
nephew needed parts for his car, which was the very next model year after mine. He was willing to come to my house to get it. We arranged a time to meet and he came to my
house. What a nightmare! What I didn't know was that I could have saved myself a lot of time and frustration if I had just gone to Quick Cash Auto. I could have asked them
to buy my car and I would have avoided all of the hassle.
