So, it’s established. You know your car is junk. But what’s the next step? You’re most likely going to contact a junk car yard (like ourselves). It may sound easy enough just to drop it there and take off, but there’s some info they might ask about your car, and info you need to tell them.
What you should ask your junkyard about before selling:
- Preparation requirements. Does the junkyard prefer to take apart the vehicle, or will it offer more money if you do it yourself? Should you get rid of tires and other non-metal materials, or will the junkyard handle that?
- Title and registration requirements. The junkyard might want to see the title and proof of registration. Be sure to check with your DMV before releasing these documents.
- Prices. Do research and look at prices for multiple junk yards in your area before choosing.
What the junkyard might ask you before selling:
- Whether the vehicle is operable.
- What parts of the car are damaged.
- The Kelley Blue Book (KBB) or National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) value.
- They may ask you to complete junked or salvaged auto paperwork. Sometimes this is called a Damage Disclosure Statement, and is included on the back of the title. When it’s not, your DMV will provide appropriate paperwork.
- Show the vehicle title and proof of registration.
- Relinquish the license plate.
