About Philadelphia, Cars & Junkyards

The name “Philadelphia” derives from the ancient Greek words for “love” (φίλος) and “brother” (άδελφός), which is where the nickname “The City of Brotherly Love” comes from. It’s a city with over 1.5 million residents, a host of landmarks and museums, and more than its fair share of cultural hotspots.

If you have a junk vehicle waiting to be removed from your driveway and scrapped for payment, check out these salvage yards, all of which serve the Philadelphia area.

Philly Cash for Cars

A major Philadelphia junk car buyer that services the city, along with Bucks County and Montgomery County. You can get an instant quote online or over the phone, and Philly Cash for Cars offers free towing and hassle-free junk car removal.

The company has more than 30 years of combined experience and take most types of vehicle, including trucks, cars, SUVs, and more.

Most of the company’s reviews are positive, but we’ve seen a few complaints from users suggesting that they were quoted one price and then offered another. This is known as a “bait and switch” and it’s very common in the industry.

For example, one of the company’s reviewers suggests that they were quoted $200, only to be told an excuse about one of the car’s parts and given a smaller sum. It can be frustrating if this happens, but there’s not much you can do about it. Just remind them what you were offered, refuse to accept anything less, and take your business elsewhere.

It’s rare, from what we can see, but on the off-chance that you are given less than you’re quoted, just make sure you’re prepared to walk away and take your money with you.
