Selling an abandoned car with no papers?

If one has a scrap car, but doesn’t have the relevant documentation for it, like the title, the process of selling it to a cash for cars company requires that one communicate to the buyer why they don’t have these papers. Maybe the vehicle was left on their driveway by strangers, essentially abandoned. Maybe someone gave it to you to get rid of. Why they couldn’t do it themselves is a good question, but a digression none the less.

This does increase the difficulty you may experience trying to sell your car. But it isn’t impossible. There are still avenues you can go down that will allow you to safely and surely rid yourself of the old useless automobile that is taking up precious space on your property. There are still some handy solutions to the age old conundrum of finding ways to sell a vehicle when you don’t have a title.


Sell in a Wrecking Yard

One avenue is the junkyard option. Making phone calls to all the local auto wreckers and cash for junk car companies may yield a positive result. If you find one, then you are in luck, because some scrap yards are cash making and they often offer free removal of your automobile. This isn’t always the case, but often times it is.

Another advantage of this option is the fact that all the paperwork is taken care of by the buyer, which further eliminates any stress and hassle from the process. And if you are an environmentally conscious individual, then it will help you rest easy at night knowing that these people are experts in recycling.

Auto Dismantling at Home

If the used car buyers and Cash for Scrap Cars Company are showing no love, you can opt to take the vehicle to pieces and sell it off as spare parts and scrap metal. This takes some time and knowledge about the internal mechanisms of the average vehicle, but it is much more lucrative than the first option we discussed. The body of the vehicle can be cut to pieces using heavy machinery tools, and taken to the junk yard as scrap metal. The spare parts can be sold online in the relevant websites.

Calling City Officials

If you call the city officials to tell them that someone abandoned their cars and could they please remove it, they might do just that. A lot of cities have the policy of hauling away abandoned vehicles at no cost to anybody but the city. Towing companies can also be a possibility, and it won’t hurt to try talking to any and all of the local towing companies to see if any of them have policies when it comes to abandoned automobiles.

In conclusion, abandoned cars are a giant annoyance, and no-one would blame you for getting so mad at finding one on your property that you lose your temper and call the police. But calm down, count to ten and reconsider this article, and find the inner peace required to calmly take action.
