5 Essential Things to Do Before Selling Your Junk Car

Maximize your payout with our efficient, trustworthy service. No hassle, just quick cash for your unwanted vehicles in St. Louis.

If you want to get rid of your old car, there is no better place than selling it to a junkyard. However, you may not know where to start with it. Moreover, it can be a time-consuming and challenging process to get the best deal for your scrap car. You might even be skeptical about the entire process due to no experience. But, if you handle things right, it can be a smooth journey.

Below, we have listed the top five essential things to do before selling your junk car in STL!

1. Remove your personal belongings- We spend a lot of time in our car while driving to work, shopping, school, or movies. Therefore, we are likely to keep our personal belongings in our car and eventually forget about them. You must remove all your personal belongings from the car before the buyer comes to pick up your vehicle. You may also find items you no longer want, but remove them from the car to avoid problems with the transaction.

2. Complete the paperwork- You must have a car title to prove your car ownership; otherwise, it will be challenging for you to sell your car without a title. Transferring the car’s ownership is essential to transfer the liabilities of your car to the dealer. You should also inquire with the local department to ensure that you comply with all the regulations. However, if your car is too old or if you have misplaced your documents, there are some junkyards where you can still sell your scrap car with no title.

3. Cancel your car’s insurance- If you are selling your junk car, there is no more need to insure it. Call your insurance provider and inform them about the same. Ask them to terminate your insurance plan when the dealer comes to pick up your car at the end of the day. The insurance company may refund the coverage you have paid for beyond that date.

4. Have all relevant information about your car handy- If you want to get the best deal for your junk car, you must have all the essential information about your vehicle handy to share with prospective buyers. You should know the following details about your car:

  • The model and year
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) present on the windshield or registration
  • Current mileage
  • Present condition, including the problematic areas

Additionally, wash your car before the dealer checks your vehicle, as it will look more presentable. If you upload photos online, include the exterior, interior, and hood. It will help your buyers know what to expect.

5. Remove the license plates- You must remove the license plates from your car before the dealer picks them up; otherwise, someone will steal them and use them on another car. What would be worse is you dealing with the police if someone commits a crime with that car.

After numerous mf calls to other companies thT basically wantef a title and a drop of my DNA , I called LBJC and I had the pleasure of dealing with Walter. The experience tho bittersweet was good because of how much he helped me. I junked a 2009 jeep cherokee Laredo. I was given a good price considering I had no title amongst other things. HE was very timely and kept an open line of communication. I am thankful I found him right when I needed to (called today and he came today)..Thanks Walter u have no ideal how you've helped me. Please call them if you want exceptional service, good customer service and good pricing for your vehicle.

I had an excellent experience with Lucky’s Towing. His time frame was on point. *ACTUALLY he arrived 15 minutes sooner than the time he gave. I expressed to him that I needed a vehicle moved off of my property as soon as possible, and he did just that. He gave me a more than fair deal for the vehicle, and I couldn’t be happier. I would definitely refer him and be using him again.

I had a 2008 Chevy Malibu I wanted to junk out. I literally called EVERY cash for junk cars company in The Metro East and Saint Louis area and Lucky had the highest offer with $300; a lot of the other companies sounded sketchy. The second and third offers from other companies were $200 and $150. I made the call and was offered pick up two days later. If you know of someone who has a car sitting around not running, I recommend them to contact Lucky.
