    Here is how to sell junk cars in Arizona

    1. Have your vehicle's documents on hand

    If you're looking to unload your junk car for cash in Arizona, it can be done even if you don't have the title, but it will be slightly more difficult. To get a duplicate, just contact your local DMV office to see about getting a replacement. You'll pay a $4 duplicate title fee, but you'll get that back and more because the value of your junk car will increase by approximately $80.

    2. Find a junk car buyer

    The trickiest part of selling your junk car for cash is finding someone to buy it. If you're not sure where to start, there are a few options, including auto junkyards, sites like CarScrappers, or various cash for car services. Well talk more about this shortly.

    3. Get as many offers as you can

    Once you know the options in your area, you're ready to get offers. CarScrappers has a user-friendly online tool that gives you a free cash offer for your junk car without any hassle in Arizona. Other local options may keep you on the phone haggling over price, but if you prefer, give us a call for the same fast turn-around time.

    4. Choose and accept an offer

    Now that you've had your offers for your junk car, it's time to choose one! Please just don't mislead anyone by accepting multiple offers. Find the offer that will get you the most money and go with that.

    5. Set up your junk car removal schedule

    Get in touch with CarScrappers and make arrangements to get rid of your junk car in Arizona when it's convenient for YOU. We let you choose when and how you will be contacted. It's your vehicle, after all.

    6. Clean out your car

    Don't be embarrassed about the state of your junk car when you're selling it! Junkyard buyers don't care if your car is clean or not. So there's no need to get it 100% spotless. But you want to make sure that you get all your belongings before it gets picked up.

    7. Keep or throw the license plates

    You don't have to surrender your old license plates when selling a junk car in Arizona. You can still keep your plates as a souvenir or just toss them into the recycling bin.

    8. Sign over the vehicle title to the buyer

    Arizona requires junk car sellers to sign the title for transfer of ownership. It's simple. We'll show you how and help you out, if needed.

    9. Cancel your car insurance policy

    No more plates? Give your agent a call and cancel that policy as soon as you can. It should be an easy process, and if you don't have time to get it done before you junk your car, that's fine. You can always do it once that junk car is off your hands! soon afterward.

    10. Sell your junk car for cash

    Once the tow truck or flatbed arrives, the driver will check to make sure your vehicle is the one you specified. Then, you'll hand over the signed vehicle title and the driver will load up your junk car for proper and safe removal.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much are junk cars worth in Arizona?

    If you're thinking of junking your car Arizona, now is a great time to do it. You can get better scrap car prices than ever before. And if you're wondering what that might be like, here are the factors that can affect that price:

    1. Type of vehicle
    2. Its condition
    3. Age
    4. Value of recyclable parts
    5. Value of scrap metal

    Do you need a title to junk a car in Arizona?

    Yes. You'll need to make sure the title is in your name and that you can sign off on it. Just remember you won't be able to junk a car in Arizona if there's a lien on it. If you're looking to junk an inherited or gift car, you can also use a bill of sale.

    Should I sell my car parts separately?

    Selling your car parts separately takes a lot more work than selling the whole thing. If you go this route, we'd recommend finding a buyer for the parts before you disassemble it. Local scrap yards or folks that work on junk cars may buy them.

    Remember though, junk car buyers buy vehicles specifically for parts, so when you disassemble a junk car, the offers you get forĀ  that vehicle is going to be much less.
