It depends on where the car is located. Some states absolutely require a title in order for a vehicle to change hands. In areas where you don’t need a title, all we need is a copy of a drivers license or other form of valid id and a copy of the registration, current or expired that matches the form of identification. Please inform of us as soon as possible if this is the case.
A basic rule of thumb to determine if you need a title or not is as follows: You do not need a title if you own the vehicle, the vehicle is 10 years or older, and if you have a registration in your name.
There are a variety of factors that go into valuing your vehicle. Depending on year, make, model, and condition, our offers typically range within the $100 – $15,000 range.

If the vehicle is as described then our online valuation will not change. We do our best to give our customers fair pricing on their vehicles. If there is a case where the vehicle we are picking up does not match the submitted description then we do have the right to change our valuation. If this is the case you will be informed and have the right to accept or reject the price change.
We salvage every vehicle we purchase. The process consists of draining all of the fluids, removing all electrical components, and refurbishing any still serviceable parts. Once everything is removed from the vehicle, the remainder is crushed for scrap metal.
Unfortunately we cannot purchase your vehicle if you still owe money on it. When you do pay the vehicle off you will receive a lien release from the financing company that will need to be attached to the title for us to purchase it. If there are old liens on your title you that have been paid off in the past, but you have lost the lien release you will need to go to your finance company and have them reprint this documentation.
Typically, newer parts will not increase the amount we can offer you, simply because we are look at it for its scrap value, rather than the parts value. If the parts are valuable and the vehicle still runs, we recommend you try to sell it as a used vehicle to maximize your return.
The value of each car is based on the year, make, and model. The more information you give us such as mileage and if there is any damage to the vehicle help us come up the highest most accurate price possible.
We prefer that the owner be with the vehicle, but we know that this is not always possible, so we are still able to pickup vehicles if all the necessary documentation is left with another individual. Please make sure that you let us know if this is going to be the case.
We pay our customers with cold hard cash. We can also make arrangements to pay you with a money order or check.

At this time, we do not sell or supply parts for vehicles.
Most likely. The easiest way to find out if we are picking cars up in your area is to give us a call and provide our representative with the zip code where the vehicle is located.
We do, however we recommend you call your local police station for special instructions on the proper paperwork needed for abandoned vehicles left on your property. All this information and paperwork will need to be done before we can dispatch a tow truck. Once again, if there are any questions regarding this issue we can be reached by email or phone.
If we need a copy of your registration to legally pick the vehicle up then one can easily be obtained from your states motor vehicle department website. Rules vary from state to state, it is best to call or email us to make sure that we can proceed with the vehicle pickup if no registration is available.
Having your keys makes removing the vehicle easier. That being said, if your vehicle is going to be recycled then there is no problem if keys are unavailable.
