If you're tired of pulling up to your property only to see your old junk car growing more weeds around it and housing more critters, then you will be glad to know that not only will someone come out to remove that junk car for you, but they will also give you cash for it. If you have the paperwork handy, you can get cash in your hand fast. Here are the steps you'll need to take to get money for junk cars:
Make an appointment – The first thing you want to do is to call the salvage dealer who you are going to be selling your junk car to. Ask them any questions you have and set up a time for them to come out to get the car. Make sure you give them good directions if you are in a rural area where GPS may be a bit fussy. When you call them they will likely want to know information on the car such as the make, model, year, condition, mileage, etc. So, try to have this information ready to give to them.
Clear out the car – Make sure the area around the car is free of debris that would prevent them from being able to get the car out quickly. This means removing everything in the path and cutting down weeds if they are very high.
Gather the vehicle paperwork – Make sure you have the vehicle paperwork available to give to the dealer when they come to get the car from you. You are going to need to have the title signed off by you. In some states, you need to have your signature notarized, so make sure you follow the requirements in your state for selling a car.
Gather any parts that go with the car – If you had taken off the hood at some point and it is now in the storage shed, you are going to want to get it and have it next to the car, this goes for anything else like this that is a part of the car.
Be there when they arrive – Make sure you are at your property at the appointment time, so they don't have to leave without buying your car; they have a job to do and don't need to waste their time. Plus, if you aren't there, you will miss out on the opportunity to get that quick cash.
Update the DMV – After you have sold your car, it will be your responsibility to inform the DMV of the sale, so they know you are no longer the legal owner. You can generally take care of this over the Internet.
