It has been widely reported that many people have not received their stimulus payment checks, or that some people have received it in the form of a debit card but threw it away, mistaking it for junk mail.

A member survey conducted by Consumer Reports listed the top 10 older cars with the most problems. Although the CR article states that many of today’s cars can go 200,000 miles before any major repairs are needed, those surveyed experienced faulty transmissions, engines and head gaskets before hitting that milestone. If you have an old car that is no longer reliable, sell it to Gershow Recycling and get cash for your junk car.
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.
With new car sales staging a comeback last month after a horrible showing the previous month, all signs also point to more people getting rid of their junk cars.
