Do you have an old car parked somewhere on your property?

Well, now might be a good time to sell your car before the car loses all value or becomes a problem to keep around.

In this blog, we’ll talk about why you should sell your old car instead of keeping it around.

Decreases Property Value

Seeing an old car on your property is quite the eyesore. Simply parked away, rusting and disintegrating, the car will make your house and your neighborhood look bad. If you don’t plan on restoring the car, then you should look to sell it immediately. While some might think that it’s an asset that they paid for and should keep, you’re actually decreasing the value of bigger assets like your house.


An old car parked away will kill the value of your property and can even bring down the property values of your neighborhood. Selling it off will get you some money and restore the value of your house.

Attracts Pests

Old abandoned cars are a great place for pests to hide and even reproduce in. It’s a stationary object outside of your home that can provide a safe space for various rodents and insects to stay in. They’ll rip the car to shreds from the inside and actually reduce the value of the junk car even more.


The rodents are also then likely to attack your garbage bins or your kitchen when they look for food. It’s a problem that can quickly turn into an infestation. Ideally, selling your car before this happens will be the best course of action.

Health and Safety Hazard

Seeing rust on a car is a sure-shot way to know that it’s something that can cause accidents. The paint flaking off of the car is toxic and shouldn’t be something you or your children come in contact with. It’s also quite likely that the engine in it is old and can be a fire hazard.
