I Had a Car Wreck – What Is My Car Worth?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, October 30, 2017

Imagine, you’re driving along just cruising down the road. You’re not bothering anyone, there’s no road rage to be had for miles and miles away. Then you’re rolling up on a traffic light after traffic light and they’re all rolling to your tune of green. “Yeah! How ‘bout that! Caught all the greens!” No sooner than you did your little strapped tight in your happy seat it happens. The guy from the other direction decided yellow meant step on it and t-boned your driver door. You check and ok and you don’t think you have serious injuries, and hopefully neither of you do, but guess what? You were on your way to trade your “there’s not a scratch on it” car in on a brand new model. I’m pretty sure once your brain stops rattling around from impact and can focus again, you might just be thinking, “I had a wreck? My car is wrecked! Now what is my car worth! How am I going to trade-in a wrecked car!” It’s a good question, how are you going to sell your car damaged? It’s it doomed for parting out?


CarBuyerUSA - What is my car worth

That’s a scary moment, right? Yeah, it probably is, but it’s not very uncommon. People think yellow stands for pedal to the metal all over this country, in every single town big or small, and it doesn’t matter if they are what you’d call a reckless driver or a cautious one. At one time or another I’m pretty sure no one is immune to beating a light. But now what? You know that car dealer went on and on about how your car looked like it did the day it rolled off the lot 5 years ago; and that low mileage, well that increased your car resell value. So what’s a guy to do? Tow a t-boned car to the dealership and hope the car salesman doesn’t’ notice anything odd? I don’t think the rest of your day is getting any better. I’m thinking he’s might say something like, “how do you expect us to sell a damaged car? The bad news is gonna just keep on coming. I can hear you now, “I’m sorry, what? How much is my car worth to sell now? What? What did you say?” Yeah, it’s not a pretty sight. Your car’s resell value just plummeted. Like, bad. Severely bad. Except for the car dealership, they just made extra money.

But wait! Yes your car drops in value. But on one bright side, you and the other driver are physically ok. The second bright side, is we buy cars in any condition. That means running well or so bad it barely gets you around the corner from your house, or even ones that don’t even get you out of the garage. We even run specials on T-bones like it’s a daily sale at the grocery store. Just don’t ask for steak sauce. That? That we don’t have.

So now that your vehicle has been in a car crash and you’re most likely crying over the loss, before you junk it call CarBuyerUSA and let us tell you a number that you’ll find is higher than that car salesman offered post car accident. What’s more, we’ll come to you to pick up and take your bad memory away and leave dancing all the way to the bank. Call 888-995-6498 now and when our friendly live agent answers, just tell them, “I had a wreck! Now how much is my car worth? Will you buy my smashed in car?” There are no surprises here; the agent will definitely say, of course we will! We pay cash for cars, trucks, & SUVs! Then? Then sell your car to us.

Is Black Book® Fair, Accurate, and Reliable?

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 26, 2017

When it comes to the car value market, you may find yourself searching for a place you can turn for the most accurate and reliable information that offers accurate trade-in, resale, and purchase amounts you can trust. But the question is, how do you know you can trust the information? It’s a fair question and CarBuyerUSA is providing you answers on that very question. Is Black Book® fair, accurate, and reliable? Read on and see how we buy cars, what makes us different, and how we are your go-to.

sell your car to CarBuyerUSA

Recently (June 2017), a trusted online source by many consumers took a look at two cars to establish their values, a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2013 Subaru Crosstrek to see how the guide books compared. We don’t find the results surprising, but you be the judge. By the way, Black Book® forces a consumer to enter personal information to calculate a vehicles value. CarBuyerUSA does NOT. All you have to provide is information directly related to the car, truck, van, or SUV you’re wanting to sell. You even have the added bonus to sell your car fast if you like the 20-second instant offer. You read that right, in as little as 20 seconds we give you a fair and accurate offer you can rely on.

Jeep Specs

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee
100K Miles
BB Trade-in value range – $5,000 to $8,215

FYI: NADA offered up $7,600 to $8,450 and KBB (entering excellent as the condition of the Jeep) brought back $5,500 to $7,685 as trade-in values.

Subaru Specs

2013 Subaru Crosstrek
10K Miles
BB Trade-in value range – $12,800 to $15,600

FYI: NADA offered up $17,150 to $19,000 and KBB delivered $17,777 to $19,100 as trade-in values on a very clean vehicle. Looking at these numbers you must be thinking, “What? Why the big gap in numbers?” Yeah, we’re thinking the same thing.

Why are these so different when ALL of the three guides claim their information is the most fair, accurate, and reliable? They even throw around the phrase “trust our guide” and the words fair and accurate when they tell consumers they’re the only go-to reliable source for the “best” numbers. Which one do you believe and trust when you want to sell your car fast and not sit on it for weeks? The answer is simple, none of them. How could they be when they’re numbers aren’t even close? All three claim to use highly accurate data from auto sales sources; you know, true data from sales in a geographical area. Are they flubbing the area their basing your vehicle spec’s number on? Granted NADA and Kelly Blue Book were close on the Subaru, but Black Book®? We wish we could offer what’s going on with their assessment of the Subaru and what they used for their results, but we’re at a loss for it.

What’s the bottom line here? Black Book® is NOT the best go-to resource. Instead, when you want to sell your car and get a fair, accurate, and reliable value, fill out our short form and get a 20-second offer you can count on from CarBuyerUSA. We buy cars and selling your car fast has never been so easy, fast, and safe.

Damaged Car? What Is Your Car Worth?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 25, 2017

I think of myself as a safe driver and I would even go as far to think I’m a good defensive driver, and chances are for the most part I’m 100% correct in my assumption. However, I could be an airhead and just not know it and as we all know, there are drivers out there who seem to be missing a spark or two in their noggin. #SMH I still have not been able to shake off one airhead on the roads here. I literally came inches from a damaged car, well a truck really and more damaged would be a better description – it has a small ding, screaming at Miss Pinhead of the Day! I just don’t understand it. Is it just simple mistakes and honest misjudgments, or arrogance? I mean, c’mon! Do you really think because your car is all shiny and pretty, drivers in damaged cars will take that into consideration? Don’t you think you should ask yourself what is your car worth first before acting so… let’s be nice and say… carelessly? LOL, go ahead. Hit a car! You can sell your car to us. We buy accident cars for sale too.

CarBuyerUSA - Crash Test Dummy

So, it’s rush-hour and I’m already frustrated that what should take 25 minutes tops to get home is an hour and a half ride of stop, sit and go. Repeat. One thousand times. It really should be smooth sailing. A hop-skip-and-a-jump. Not a battleground out there. Not something you’re sitting in, right next to a crazy driver who just decides she likes your spot better than hers so cuts the wheels to the right and steps on the gas. “Really? I’m right here!” When is it ever ok to push a driver off the road from a stand-still position? In an emergency maybe? Yeahhh, I got nothin’. That’s all I got. Here’s a major tip for crazy drivers.

Don’t. Be. A. Crazy. Driver.

But if you do – and this is big too – hope that you don’t catch me out on the road in my own car and not in my friend’s truck, because if you share some of your crazy with me it’s on! I’ll be dancin’ in the street screaming about my neck. Hey, fair is fair. A crazy for a crazy seems like a fair trade-off to me.

Seriously, why is it a daily fight to get from place to place? I don’t care how densely populated an area is, it’s driving 101 for dummies people. Your name is NOT Peter Fonda or Dennis Hopper. You don’t have a helmet riding on a sissy bar or a hat sitting up there flying proud in the wind. You are NOT born to be wild.

So, c’mon over to the other side where the smart drivers roam. When you hop in your car to head out on the highway, go ahead… get your motor running and buckle-up. Put your thinking caps on but leave “your airhead” at home. It’s not a pretty look and you’ll get to where you’re going without kissing any damaged cars, or creating any for that matter, and you won’t end up looking like a crash-test dummy.

I like to be proactive when I’m driving and watch for the airheads. There are so, so many here. Who taught them to drive anyways? I’m not saying there aren’t times when I’m not a careless driver, after all, I’m on the road with a bunch of airheads. I react. Knock on wood with me here and hopefully, we’ll never meet out on the roads. I really don’t want to end up with a damaged car and have the unfortunate task of asking you what your car is worth now. BUT IF WE MEET! No worries, even mad at you for not letting the air out of your head before leaving home, I’ll still be nice enough to give you info to sell your car to CarBuyerUSA. Lucky for both of us they walk around telling everyone, “we buy cars in any condition running or not” meaning they buy accident cars for sale too.

Damaged Car and Muscle Don’t Belong Together

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 13, 2017

Being a very active food blogger in the Greater Atlanta Area I’m out and about a lot and meet new people frequently, but it’s not like the topic of sell your car comes up often. When it does, I’m on it; but if I’m honest it’s only because I met, talked to, and I write for the guys behind Car Buyer USA; and I’m truly impressed with these guys. I’ve never really had a reason to feel any kind of passion about selling or buying cars. My passion has always been about classics and muscle cars. Oh, and a Bugatti; I need a Bugatti. I’m meant to have a Bugatti sitting in my long driveway right outside my two 20 car garages housing my Superbird, ’59 hardtop convertible Corvette, Cuda, Dart, Comet, Charger, GTO, Barracuda, …you get the picture, which brings me to the reason for this post; “classic car damage”. It’s really so sad. The words damaged car and muscle don’t belong together, much less process. They just don’t compute.

I watch car auctions on TV and my friend and I’ll battle over do you drive it or do you cart it around? My feeling is part of the fun of having a badass street mean muscle of a classic is showing off. Ha. I’d want EVERYONE to not only see me rolling down the highway, but hear me coming. How does it go? “Got those highway blues can’t you hear my motor runnin’? Flyin’ down the road with my foot on the floor. All the way in town they can hear me comin’. Ford’s about to drop she won’t do no more. fa la la la la…” Yep, that’s me. And I can’t forget about “Gotta keep movin’ or I’ll lose my mind.” It’s just something you feel or you just don’t. I’ll never understand how those who don’t get “it”, don’t get it and it seems impossible a person wouldn’t feel it. But no matter, the rumbling of muscle gliding down the highway is the American way, period, and I’m as American as they come.

So, how did it make me feel when Tom told me his precious 1966 GTO was in a car crash? “My heart started achin’, my body started shakin’ and I can’t take no mo-ore!” and the room began to spin. Tragic. I couldn’t imagine. Give me a ’66 GTO and let Mother Nature so much as blow wind on her and she’d get her butt whooped. Let some guy hurt my baby… oh boy. Yeah, I have redneck hiding in me and I know where to find it when it’s needed. I think I’d be red in the face screaming before I realized it.

After I caught my breathe I moved the conversation to, “I know someone that buys accident cars for sale. I know who you could sell your car to if you’re looking to cut your losses.” The way Tom looked at me, “what is my car worth?” you would’ve thought I had three heads; and he didn’t have to ask if I was crazy. Rude. I already knew he wasn’t selling his GTO, I just shamelessly seized the opportunity to promote my guys. Car Buyer USA’s claim to fame, rightfully so, is “we buy cars in any condition anywhere in the U.S. and we do it fast, easy, and safe.” You can drop your car off at one of their preferred partners or if you need them to, they’ll come to you and have cash in your bank in no time. I’m not really sure if they’d buy a classic, but if you or someone you know has a 2004 or later vehicle that needs to be sold quick, they’re your guys. Jeez, now the Doobie Brothers and Whiteshake will be going off in my head all day. Could be worse though. It could be won’t you be my neighbor; and by the way, you know damaged car and muscle don’t belong together. It’s an oxymoron as much as the guy that hurt Tom’s GTO is a moron. Classic car damage is a sin. I’d hit a tree first.

Sell Damaged Car – What is My Car Worth?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, October 02, 2017

Has your car been in an accident? Has a tree crushed the hood? Was there a hit and run? Is the at fault driver’s insurance company giving you a hard time; do they even have insurance coverage?

The unexpected can happen to anyone; a negligent driver could come along or a tree could come crashing down. The wind could pick up your vehicle and rolled it around a few times or you could leave your car in neutral forgetting to put the emergency brake on. Then there’s always a freak accident that could happen – a bag of money falls from the sky and you don’t want to use it to pay for repairs… ok, that’s probably not going to happen so don’t count on it. Or any number of things can leave your car damaged.
