Can I sell a junk car without a title in Cincinnati, OH?


If you try to sell a car without a title, your choices might be more restricted than those of other sellers who have a readily available title.

  • If your car title is missing, lost, or stolen and you're wondering how to sell your car, you need to request a replacement title.
  • If your car is totaled, has a salvage title, has no title at all, or you have no way to obtain a valid title, car junkyards often buy cars without a title an pay you in cash. However, the lack of a title might lower your selling price.
