FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What documents do I need?

When you’re ready to sell your junk car, Rusty’s Auto Salvage takes care of most of the paperwork. We want things to be as simple for our customers as possible, which is why we’ve streamlined the junk car selling process. That said, you’ll need to have a few documents in order to sell your junk car. First, be sure you have either a driver’s license or a valid state-issued I.D. This ensures us of your identity. In addition to an I.D., you’ll need to have a copy of both your vehicle’s title and registration. These documents allow us to verify that you’re the owner of your vehicle, which protects everyone involved in the process. If you can’t find your title or registration, contact your local DMV office and ask about obtaining a duplicate.

My vehicle won’t start or isn’t driveable. Will you still buy it?

Absolutely! We’ll make an offer on any car, regardless of its condition. This includes vehicles that don’t run, or that aren’t roadworthy. Our towing services are included free of charge, which means we’ll be able to pick up your vehicle at no cost to you.

What if I do not have my keys?

If your vehicle is being scrapped, then no keys is no problem.

What if I do not have my title?

In most cases, no title is no problem as long as you have your driver's license and a copy of your registration. Please notify us of this information as soon as possible.

What if I lost my registration?

Get Extra Cash Fast

Have you been looking through your house for things you can sell to make some extra cash? Go ahead and take a look outside your window, do you see your junk car sitting on the street? You can sell your junk car and get cash fast. All you need to do is call us and answer a few simple questions about your car. Then our professional agents will give you a top dollar quote. If the quote sounds reasonable to you, then you can schedule a time for the tow truck to come and pick up your junk car. It does not matter where you're located. We work with tow truck drivers from all over the country. 

What Happens After You Call

Once you call us, our agents will ask you a few questions about your junk car so they can give you the correct quote. They will ask you questions about the condition of the car. They might ask what the body of the car looks like or if there is any damage on the inside of the car. Our agents might ask about the engine of the car to know if it can be driven or not. We will also want to know if the car is missing any parts like tires, windows, doors, or mirrors. In general, our agents are trying to determine how much your car is worth, so the more information you can give the better. After this information is given to our agents, they will be able to calculate your quote. If your car is still drivable we will reach out to our nationwide network of buyers, these buyers are sometimes looking for specific parts or new projects to work on. If your car is not drivable then we will sell it for scrap metal. In these situations the larger the car is the more cash we will be able to give you. Larger cars have more metal and are worth more.  After the quote is determined, you work with the agent to schedule a time for your car to be towed away. We can tow your car from anywhere. We can tow the car from your house or even from your mechanic’s shop. As soon as the tow truck driver arrives, you will fill out some paperwork and then he will hand you a check for the exact amount of the quote. We will never try to haggle with you at the last minute or pay you less than what you are owed. Once you have the check you can access the funds immediately. 

Important Documents

There are a few documents that you will need in order to go through with the sale. We recommend that you have a copy of your title and registration. We can offer you a much higher quote if you have these documents. If you do not have a copy of the tile or the registration you can always ask the DMV to mail you a new copy. If you have any questions about getting copies of the documents from the DMV, you can always call one of our representatives.
