    Here is how to sell junk cars in Nevada

    1. Prepare your vehicle’s documents

    No title? Your best bet is to contact your local DMV office about getting a replacement title. There will be a small fee (usually around $20). But here's the thing. The extra value of having the title in hand when you sell your junk car will likely end up being worth more than what it cost you to replace it. On average, we see the offers for junk cars increase by $80 when the seller has the title.

    2. Find a junk car buyer in your area

    The junk car selling process is different from the used car process. Even so, you still have lots of options for unloading a junk car in Nevada, including websites like Carscrappers, auto junkyards in your area, and online cash for cars services. We'll dive more into this, below.

    3. Get offers from buyers

    So, you know who buys junk cars in Nevada. Time to solicit offers! If you use CarScrappers, you'll love our quick and easy online tool to get a no-hassle offer, while giving you the option to call for an offer as well. Other local buyers will most likely require you call them to hammer out any offer.

    4. Accept the best offer for your car

    Once you've gotten a couple different offers, accept ONE. Don't accept multiple offers if you have zero intention of selling to them. Pinpoint the best offer and go with it!

    5. Arrange for your junk car removal

    After you accept our offer for your junk car, the CarScrappers team will arrange pickup of your vehicle according to your schedule. Getting rid of your junk car shouldn’t give you a headache, so we'll let you know when your carrier will get there and make sure you have their contact info.

    6. Clean your car out of your valuables

    If you've got a junk car, you might not be too worried about the trash in it, but make sure you've cleaned out all of your valuables! Sellers often forget about the things they left behind like car chargers, tire inflators, or car seats. Don't worry too much if it's dirty — junk car buyers couldn't care less if so.

    7. Remove the license plates from the car

    In Nevada, you'll have to surrender plates to the DMV or keep them to use on your next vehicle. You're allowed 30 to 60 days to accomplish this, depending on the type of plate you have.

    8. Sign over the vehicle title to the new owner

    The Nevada DMV requires title transfer whenever a junk car is sold in the state. The process isn't complicated and we're happy to walk you through it.

    9. Remember to cancel your car insurance

    Don't let a car insurance policy get in the way of selling your junk car for cash! Just surrender your plates to the DMV, then you can cancel your auto insurance without any trouble. Phone your agent and they should be able to get it taken care of quickly.

    10. Sell your junk car for cash

    Now that you're ready to unload that decrepit junk car for cash, there's just one more thing to do. When the tow truck or flatbed arrives, take a minute to verify the driver knows he's got the right car. Then sign over the vehicle title and watch as your car is hooked up and removed from your property.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much are junk cars worth in Nevada?

    When you're looking to sell your junk car, there are a few things to consider:

    1. Vehicle age
    2. Condition of your junk car
    3. Type of vehicle
    4. Scrap metal value
    5. Value of recyclable parts

    Scrap metal and used car parts are IN DEMAND, so now is the time to take advantage of skyrocketing junk car prices!

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

    Yes, but we understand that every case is different, so occasionally we can. You’d definitely need your registration and driver’s license.

    Should I sell my car parts separately?

    You can, but why would you want to? It's a huge pain to disassemble a junk car for parts, and the salvage value of your car decreases considerably when you do so most people don't waste the time.

    If you're sure you want to sell your car parts separately, though, we advise that you first try to find a buyer. You'll get a better idea of what they're really worth and whether or not you can actually sell them. Scrap yards and mechanics might be interested in the engine, alternator, or catalytic converter.
