Steps Before Junking Your Car

Posted on October 11th, 2018 by ncapmanage

Do you have an old or unusable car rusting away on your property and you don’t know what to do with it? Taking it in for repairs could end up costing you more than the car is worth. Your next step is to sell your car to New Cats Auto Parts to join other junk cars in Blue Island. Before you do this, there are some steps that you should follow:

Collect Personal Belongings

This might seem obvious, but our cars somehow end up with a variety of odds and ends from our daily life. At the end of years of faithful service, your car probably holds important documents or personal belongings. To ensure that no valuable personal belongings are lost when you junk your car, comb through the trunk and other storage compartments before handing it over.


Although it is possible to junk your car without the proper documents, you will get a lower price than you would with documents. You will need your title in order to transfer ownership to whomever or wherever you are selling the car.

Make sure you remove your license plates because some states require them to transfer ownership. Additionally, cancel your car’s insurance so you won’t have to make any payments before the policy expires. If you paid in advance, you’re entitled to a refund.
