Get Rid of Your Junk Car for Safety’s Sake

The National Safety Council (NSC) has named June as National Safety Month. One of the aspects that the organization focuses on is road safety. If you have a junk car that is way too old, either because it no longer runs as well as it should, or there are no safety features to protect you in a crash, Gershow will buy that unsafe vehicle from you.

For whatever reason, people hold onto their cars for as long as they can. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that the driver of an 18-year-old car is 71% more likely to be killed in a crash than someone driving a newer vehicle (three years old or fewer). If an older vehicle does not have safety features such as air bags, it is time to get rid of it and sell it to Gershow.

What may also make your junk car unsafe is the lack of driver-assist technology on the vehicle. This includes lane departure warning systems, anti-lock braking systems, automatic emergency braking, brake assist, forward collision warning and rearview cameras generally used for backing up.

But it’s not just that: a poor alignment will make the tire treads uneven. Once the tire treads wear down, they will no longer have any traction, which could cause the junk car to hydroplane and cause a crash. If your brakes are making pulsating, squealing, grinding or scraping sounds, it means your brakes are starting to fail.

Rust on your junk car is not only unsightly, but it could endanger yourself and your passengers. Some of the rusted parts could break off under impact. Rusted brake and gas lines could also pose a danger. Gershow will buy your junk car from you, regardless of its age or condition.

Contact Gershow to turn your old junk car into cash. Call (631) 371-2031 or visit https://clunkersintocash.com/.

  1. You made a good point on how you should stop using a car if it’s showing signs of serious wear and tear. My uncle has this old muscle car in his yard, and he has not used the car for years. I’ll probably suggest that he look for a junk car expert that can take this from him and get paid for it.

Chris was great. He gave me the exact amount quoted, no fuss at all, he even removed my plates from the car. He took off with the car and there were no problems whatsoever with the transaction. I highly recommend Gershow's services.

They were very good throughout the process. I was very disappointed that when they arrived they changed my quoted amount that was agreed upon previously. The tow truck driver was instrumental in negotiating and helped me get closer to the original amount.

Top notch experience all around: I was given a very good price for my vehicle, they came and picked it up and gave me cash right on the spot when I presented my title to them. The drivers were very professional and the customer service was very informative and pleasant to speak with.

I have been seeing different post about Mrs Anita Crypto Fx everywhere and a lot of traders keep on saying reach out to her, I eventually did and it turns out to be legit. I did an initial investment of $1000 and I received a surprised profit of $15,250 after 6days of trading, I followed her instructions with which i invested and within a week I got back my profit, I started seeing good results. Last week l made a successful withdrawal. Just stop worrying she will help you out. Thank you very much Mrs Anita. I would advise anyone seeing this post to contact her, I am responsible for the content I post here on Facebook, I am so serious about this you can inbox her directly via:

Amazingly easy process.I had a vehicle sitting for a long time, and in just a few hours it was all gone.They were very professional and the price was more than reasonable for the condition the vehicle was in (flat tires, dead battery, not started in over a year, etc.)Thanks Gershow for a pleasant, easy and professional experience!

I had a car that failed and the repair was more than it was worth. I decided to junk it and called Gershow, partly based on positive reviews. Response was prompt and friendly. The price offered for the clunker was very fair. The tower who came for it arrived exactly on schedule and was friendly and efficient. I’m very satisfied with all aspects of the process

Although much of the experience went well, I still have not received, to my knowledge, a SIGNED bill of sale or receipt showing that I sold the car.I was not asked to sign the title, and was paid in cash. Besides an Excel document, which I could have easily made myself, there is absolutely no proof that I don't still own, and am responsible for, the vehicle.This issue has been brought up several times.EDIT: I bumped it from 2 to 4 stars because after several contacts the did provide me with the documentation I needed.

Wow! I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful experience I had at Gershow Recycling! Everyone who worked there was friendly and inviting. Not only that but they treated my trade fairly and was happy with their estimate and the money they returned to me. Overall, it was a great experience and it was even really cool to be in a live junk yard! I felt like I was in a movie!
