If you have junk cars you'd like to get rid of, they may contain salvage parts that are valuable. However, before we pick up your car for the junk yard, you must have a valid title to the car. We cannot pick up junk cars without a clear or legal title, and we cannot accept donations of those types of junk cars.
If you don't have the title, there are companies that specialize in obtaining titles for vehicles, boats, trailers, etc., but they are expensive. It may not be worth it to spend the money to gain a valid title on many junk cars. However, you can still sell the car for salvage parts yourself, especially if the car is collectible or rare.
