How can I make money on Car Mechanic Simulator 2018?

I’ve been playing Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 for a couple of years now and I can never seem to really get a good cushion of money in my account, but my friends all seem to have fortunes. We all play about the same amount, so what do I need to do to make more money in the game?

There are actually quite a few ways to make money on Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 (CMS)! One of the quickest and most effective ways is to utilize the junkyard feature added in the 2018 game upgrade. You can not only buy whole cars for much cheaper than at auction, but you can also collect a lot of parts for just tiny amounts of money.
When you get back to your garage, you’ll pay a bit to repair the items that can be fixed. You can then use those repaired parts to build and repair vehicles without having to buy full-price parts. You can also choose to resell the repaired parts outright for an immediate profit.
But what about all the stuff that can’t be repaired? Don’t worry—you can resell those for more than paid at the junkyard as well, again, making yourself extra money fast. Obviously, the more fully upgraded your workshop is, the quicker and more easily you’ll be able to make money, so be sure you keep up with upgrades as you play.
Making extra money in CMS can be easy, but not as easy as it is to save money with
