How To Prepare Your Car Before You Sell It

When the time comes to sell your junk car for cash in Palm Beach County there are a few things we recommend you do to prepare your vehicle before calling a junk car buyer. Having the vehicle cleaned out and your paperwork on hand will speed up the process so you won’t have to scramble when the tow truck driver arrives to pick up your vehicle.

What To Do Before Junking a Car

It’s time to sell your vehicle which mean you should take some time to get it ready for the sale. Cleaning it out and having all of your documentation on hand are just two things you’ll need to.

By doing the following you’ll make the process quick and easy for everyone.

Grab Your Personal Belongings From Your Car

Make sure to remove all of your stuff from the vehicle. Check the glove box, middle console area, under the seats and inside your trunk. Remove any valuables from the vehicle like seat covers, custom fit floor mats and any other aftermarket accessories you have as most of these items can be resold separately on a marketplace.  You’ll even want to peek where your spare tire is kept to make sure you don’t have any tools or a jack you may want to keep.

Provide a Copy Of Your Vehicle Title & Registration

You’ll need to have a copy of your title to sell your vehicle in the State of Florida. Most junk car buyers want you to have a copy of your vehicle’s title so they can easily file the necessary paperwork with the state to salvage your vehicle. The title also allows the vehicle purchaser to verify ownership to ensure the person selling the car is legally allowed to do so. If you do not have a copy of the title, some junk car companies can use your vehicle’s registration and your personal ID to complete the transaction.

Remove The License Plate From The Vehicle

Unbolt the license plate from the vehicle before you allow the driver to load your vehicle on their tow truck. If you leave it on, there is a high chance that you will not get the license plate back because the vehicle could be crushed the same day at a local junkyard or salvage yard. The reason why you want to hold on to the license plate is because you can transfer it over to the next vehicle you purchase which will save you a few bucks. If you decide you won’t get another car, then by law, you have to surrender the license plate to your local Florida DMV office.

Have Your Driver’s License Available

You’ll need a valid ID to prove you are who you say you are when it is time to sell your vehicle. The junk car buyer will need to verify that your name matches the name on the vehicle’s title before they can pay you cash. If your name does not match the vehicle’s ownership information, you’ll need to make sure the person who legally owns the car is present.
