Question by : Is buying and selling junk cars an easy or practical way to make a few extra bucks?
I just lost my job and I need to make a few bucks until I get another.

I have a truck. I would need to buy a trailer. Otherwise, do you think I could make money buying and selling junk cars?

If I could just profit $ 300 – 500 a week, this would help me a great deal.

yes you can if you are willing to turn a wrench and get very dirty, you will need some room and you will make more money at this by selling parts only whenever possible, you can get an idea of prices by asking junk yards what they charge for certain things, then undercut them….you may even run across some gems
