Make money fast and get your dream car in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021.
Money in Car Mechanic Simulator is a never-ending problem. This is especially true in the early game, where you will make lots of purchases and upgrade errors which can lead to a broken economy.
If you’re new to Car Mechanic Simulator, you must know the best ways to make money fast, as this will go a long way in making sure you can progress through the game as smoothly as possible.
This quick guide will show you how to make money fast in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021.
Making Fast Money in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021
There are multiple ways to make money in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021. Try out the methods we have outlined below to get money fast.
Disable Travel Fees
Traveling in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 costs money. If you haven’t noticed, you pay around 500 CR every time you visit the Junkyard, Auction House, or Barn. While those seemingly harmless Junkyard trips might not cost much now, those CR add up in the long run.
Fortunately, you can turn off Travel Fees through the settings menu.
- Click on Settings in the Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 Main Menu.
2. Click on the Gear Icon:
3. Switch ‘Enable travel fees’ to No.
Unlock Renovator Upgrades
Without the ability to fix parts yourself, you will have no choice but to visit the Junkyard for spare parts. This will cost you both Travel Fees and the cost of the parts you’re looking for.
Renovator Upgrades allows you to fix Parts, saving you money as you progress in the game. You will also get a small chance to instantly repair parts, which can speed up your repair process.
Increase Junk Car Value
Another great way to make money fast in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 is by purchasing junk cars and fixing them a little bit to turn a profit. You don’t have to fix the car back to perfect condition, just enough to make the car profitable.
A simple Car Wash can sometimes be enough to turn a profit on a junker. Other times, however, you’ll need to strip off parts from the car and repair them to make a profit.
That said, you must first unlock a few workshop components to make money off junkers.
Unlock the Car Wash, Work Bench, and Brake Lathe
The previous method will only work if the Car Wash and Work Bench are unlocked.
Unlocking the Car Wash will cost just 1750 CR, but you can easily make that money back after you wash and flip a few junkers. On the other hand, Work Bench will allow you to fix mechanical parts from junkers which can increase the car’s value before you sell it.
You might want to unlock the Brake Lathe to start taking on Brake Disc Repair jobs.
How to Cheat Money in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021?
You cannot use cheats to get money in your current Car Mechanic Simulator save file. You can, however, create a new game and use special profile names to get a CR and Level boost when you start the game from scratch.
Here are the profile names you can use to get bonuses when you start a new game in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021:
- cms2021promo: Jump to Level 36 and get $500,000 CR
- cm2021stage1: Jump to Level 5 and get $4,000 CR
- cms2021stage2: Jump to Level 12 and get $50,000 CR
You can use the profile names above in Easy and Normal difficulty. Do not pick Expert or Sandbox, as these cheats will not work on those modes.
How do you get a lot of scrap in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021?
The Junkyard is a reliable place to get scrap in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021. You can purchase parts off of junk cars from the Junkyard or purchase a whole chassis and then strip parts off of those to get the components you need.
Crates are another great source of scrap in the Car Mechanic Simulator. You can get these by completing transmission swaps and service jobs (changing/adding fluids). Alternatively, get the ‘Lucky’ perk for a 25% chance of getting an extra Crate after completing jobs.
You can also get Crates from Barns. Each one should have at least one Crate, so check every corner of every Barn to find Crates.
Money is only a problem in Car Mechanic Simulator in the game’s early stages. As you complete more jobs and unlock more perks, you should have a healthy pool of capital, allowing you to take on almost any job in-game.
Try out the money-making methods we have outlined above to get a better chance at surviving the early game in Car Mechanic Simulator 2021.
