If you are trying to sell your junk car without a title, and you’re thinking, “I want top dollar for my car,” you might find limited options. You know you can’t just trade it in at a dealership or sell it on craigslist or eBay because, without a title, it’s nearly worthless to most people. If the car is not classic or desirable to a niche enthusiast group, then without state paperwork the car becomes a total liability. In fact, in many areas, you will get ticketed for having a junk car in your driveway or yard, or for not keeping insurance on it, so now it’s costing you money! But all is not lost, you do have a few options.
Give it Away!
If you are so rich you don’t care if you get anything for that junk car, you could give the thing away. Plenty of church groups or nonprofits like the Salvation Army or Goodwill have programs where you can gift your car to them and they use it to provide jobs and money for people in need. Also, some school auto or body shop programs take donated cars, then turn them around to sell at low rates after their students practice on them.
Part it Out!
You could decide to sell the car one part at a time. A Craigslist or Ebay listing could get you started on the path of becoming an auto salvage entrepreneur! However, you will have to be somewhat handy, have a lot of spare time to run the posts, and have a place to store the vehicle for months on end while you wait for someone to buy your “like-new” Civic seats or the fuel pump from your 1997 Corolla. If you were to stick with it, you might wring the most amount of money from your junk ride with this method, although it will be an eyesore that takes up space, and what is your time worth? Do you want to spend your Saturday mornings meeting some guy who really wants the dashboard out of your 1992 Ford Ranger?
