If you find yourself looking outside and staring at your old-faithful car in the driveway and feel the need to finally get rid of it, you are not alone.
There are a few things you need to know about selling your junk, wrecked or salvaged car.First, make sure you have a clear title with no liens on it. What is a clear title with no liens? Well, simply put, it means an original or certified duplicate title with no loans or liens on it. The title can be given with a lien release letter from the lien holder and that will work or the title itself can be signed by the lien holder as paid off and you are good to go. In other words, make sure you have paid for the vehicle in full and have the proof in writing. Again, make sure that you have a lien release letter signed by the owner or dealership releasing you from any financial responsibility if your title still has an unsigned lien on it.
Most junk car buyers will ask you to have your title and keys ready for the tow truck driver. So, it's in your best interest to have everything ready before calling for quotes so that you will have a negotiable product for sale at the time of speaking with us. Trying to sell a car with no title is very risky. It is like trying to sell a house without a deed. Who would buy a house with out a deed. Not many people. There is a place to get a duplicate title if you have lost yours at the Regional DMV at 1001 East Parmer here in Austin. All you need is $5.50 your ID and the Vin Number and they will print out a new title in a matter of minutes. Just be the person who's name is on the title and your good to go. There is usually not a wait at that office. And they are Regional so they work with cars titled in other Counties. It is helpful to know what is exactly where your car is as in address. Funny how some people get through the process of booking their car with us and then come to find out they do not know exactly where their vehicle is. We usually help with the computer and Google in front of us to find the shop or apt address. Also providing a back up phone number is good too as in this day and age there are so many answering machines, and phone numbers with no answering machine on it. Our drivers do their best to reach you in a timely manner but they can not schedule a tow if they can not reach you.
We try and pick up vehicles in the fastest manner possible. However, we are not AAA. There is a process to get your check written and to the driver before dispatch so that we have all our ducks in a row before we call you. In order to save fuel and the environment, if a car is far away out drivers can at sometimes group them (our trucks can usually carry 2 cars) so as to save fuel and time. This help also to keep our junk car prices as high as possible.
