Since policies vary from junkyard to junkyard, ask about salvage preparation, title and registration requirements, and prices. Some junkyards prefer to dismantle the vehicle, while others offer more money if the vehicle is already dismantled. Shop around different junkyard locations for the best price. Provide information regarding the vehicle, such as its KBB and NADA value, its damaged parts and whether it is operational. Some states require junked or salvaged vehicle paperwork and proof of registration and title.

Junk My Car evaluates junk car values online and offers money instantly. Enter basic vehicle information, such as the car's make, model, year, trim and location. Answer details about the vehicle regarding its title, mileage and condition. Schedule a free junk car removal, and present the title. Receive payment for the vehicle if it passes inspection.

List junk car parts on online marketplaces to sell parts individually. Negotiate with potential buyers, strip parts that are sold, and ship the parts to the buyer. Private listings are useful for selling remaining parts after salvaging the car at a local junkyard. Sell any leftover parts to local scrap metal yards.
