I crashed my car :( Accidentally rearended a pickup :( It's not drivable because the radiator fell out, but I was told by the guy who towed it that the frame wasn't damaged. I don't know what to do with it now. I'd really like to avoid towing it all over the place trying to get the best quote, but I'm not sure I could get a decent quote from just the pictures: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0WYKxtipNPVT0g4dEtMV2tJNnM

Also, it's 2008 and has 60,000 miles and probably only costs 9000 or so, so if I'm not able to fix it for a decent price, I'd have to somehow get rid of it and buy a new one. Do you guys know what would be the best way to get rid of it to make as much money back as possible? I just put new tires on it too the day before :(

    It might be a good idea to tell us from which country you are from. Maybe the state also makes a difference.

    Based on the tags I was going to guess California. The other thing to consider is how much different any quote is going to be. If you shop it around and spend $500 on towing to make an extra $250... For your own sanity, get a reputable shop to give you a quote, just don't use a dealer unless you want to pay the max. Sorry you have to go through this. I've done it one and it's a pain no matter how you slice it.

If you have the space you could part out the vehicle or sell whole as is. With that amount of damage I can see the repair value is high. If you need it gone quick you will get quick price. IMO

Engine 200-400 Transmission 150-300 Doors 70-100 Deck lid 50 Fenders 50

Price can change but idea... These are typical junk yard prices. If you go this route then drain ALL FLUIDS yourself! Especially gasoline.

  • That doesn't seem like a lot... unless you're missing some zeros here and there... Why do I have to drain the fluids myself?

  • If you dont then other people won't care and you will have this and that all over the place. Those prices are tentative... You can charge what you like.

    I'm not sure what you're saying... Others won't care about what? And I was asking what you meant by "high" repair value, not prices per part, as I don't plan on selling them individually
