What Happens When You Sell Your Car to a Junkyard
Are you ready to get rid of an old car or a car that’s been wrecked? U Pull & Save pays top cash 4 junk cars in Fort Myers, FL. Here’s what selling your car to us will look like:
Find the Title
Whenever you sell a car, the title needs to be transferred. Doesn’t matter who you sell it to, you’ll need to title to make it legal, even when selling to a salvage yard.
And, to take it one step further, you need a clean title. You can’t sell a car to anyone if it has a lien. If you’re wondering how to resolve issues, give us a call, and we’ll walk you through what you need to do.
If you’ve lost your title, you can request a new one from your DMV. Just give them a call to get the request started.
Get Several Estimates
It’s always good to get several estimates before selling your car. The good thing is that most junkyards, including U Pull & Save, will give you a quote over the phone. Collect the basic info about your car – make, model, year, and condition – and then pick up the phone. You can get several price quotes for your vehicle in less than an hour without ever leaving your home.
When comparing the estimates, you obviously want to consider the offer price, but that’s not the only thing that will differentiate the offers. First of all, never pay for towing. If a yard doesn’t include towing, cross them off your list. Additionally, only do business with yards that pay cash. Some yards offer coupons or other incentives in lieu of cash, and these are rarely a good deal.
All other things being equal, you can research the yards online to see which one has the best reviews. After all this work, we’re confident you’ll find U Pull & Save on the top of your list.
Prepare the Car
Once you’ve accepted an offer and scheduled a pickup date, It’s time to get your car ready. Once the car goes to the junkyard, it’s gone for good, and so is every single thing inside. You need to clean out all your personal belongings; you won’t be able to get them back. And always remove the license plates.
This is also a moment to consider removing some of the more valuable components of the car. The GPS, radio, aftermarket additions, and other parts may have value outside your vehicle. If you remove them, you can sell them separately and increase the amount of cash you get for your car. However – and this is important – if the salvage yard quoted a price for your car with the understanding that those parts were included, removing them will change the deal. The salvage yard will make adjustments if they pick up the car and find those parts missing. Make sure you’re completely transparent about anything valuable you remove.
Finalizing the Sale
When the tow truck arrives to pick up your car, the car will be briefly inspected to make certain that the vehicle is as you represented it to be. You’ll sign over the title and receive your cash. You probably also need to report the sale to your state DMV.
But that’s it. It really is that simple.
