How to Sell Your Used Car in Thornton, IL

There are several options for selling your used vehicle, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Obviously, we think the quickest option to get cash for junk cars in Thornton is to sell them to us.

Options include:

Sell it on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist


  • Free to list.
  • Can be somewhat quick to get an offer if your car still runs and has proper paperwork.
  • Able to receive local offers.
  • You can spend money to advertise it, getting it in front of a larger audience.


  • The risk of dealing with someone difficult or unreasonable.
  • Scammers.
  • Selecting from multiple offers can be stressful, making you unsure if you’ve chosen the best one.
  • Finding a time and location to meet the person (and you’ll probably want to take another person along for safety reasons).
  • The buyer is going to need to know how to properly transport the vehicle. Example: It’s unlikely they’ll tow it away for you.
  • You have to do the paperwork or find (and pay) someone to do it for you.


We Pay Cash For Your Junk Cars


  • They might pay you more than a car dealership.
  • Some pay immediately.
  • They might pay you more than if you sold the parts separately yourself.


  • It can be a hassle:
    • Call a junkyard to see when they’re open and accepting junk cars.
    • Drive to the junkyard.
    • Find an available employee.
    • Have them review the car.
    • Wait for the estimate.
    • Negotiate.
    • If you can’t come to an agreement, then you’ll have to start the entire process again.
  • They may charge you by the weight of your car.

Car Dealership


  • They handle the paperwork.
  • There are lots of them around.
  • You don’t have to deal with members of the general public on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist.


  • Because their goal is to turn around and sell the car to someone else (and make a profit), they will offer you as little as possible to get the vehicle into their inventory.
  • Not all vehicles are accepted by used car dealers, especially if they’re not drivable or have been in multiple accidents.
  • Used car dealerships don’t always have the best reputation for being above board.

Donate Your Junk Car


  • Feel good, and donations help others.
  • You may be eligible for a tax deduction.
  • The organization you donate to can use the funds to help your community or another cause that is important to you.


  • You don’t get paid for your vehicle.
