FAQs about junkyards in Monroe County, NY

What legal requirements do I need to meet to sell my car to a junkyard in Monroe County, NY?

+
βˆ’

In order to sell your car to a junkyard in Monroe County, NY, you typically need to meet these legal requirements:

  1. Proof of Ownership: You must provide proof of ownership, which is usually your vehicle title. If you don't have the title, contact the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to obtain a duplicate.
  2. Valid Identification: You'll need to show a valid government-issued photo ID, like a driver's license or passport.
  3. Complete a Bill of Sale: Some junkyards may ask you to complete a Bill of Sale, indicating the sale price and stating that you're selling the vehicle "as-is."
  4. Release of Liability: Submit a Release of Liability to the Monroe County, NY DMV to remove your liability for the vehicle once it's sold. You can do this online or by mailing the appropriate form.
  5. Smog Certificate: Depending on the age and location of your vehicle, you may need to provide a valid smog certificate. Junkyards often handle this if required.
  6. Remove License Plates: Before handing over your vehicle, remove the license plates. You can either transfer them to another vehicle or return them to the DMV.
  7. Payment: Ensure you receive payment for the vehicle. The payment method may vary, so discuss this with the junkyard beforehand.
  8. Cancellation of Insurance: Contact your auto insurance company to cancel coverage on the sold vehicle.

Please note that specific requirements can vary depending on the junkyard and the condition of your vehicle. Always check with the junkyard you plan to sell to and refer to the New York DMV for the most up-to-date information and forms.

Can I sell a junk car without a title in Monroe County, NY?

+
βˆ’

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 you are still in the process of paying off a car loan, the likelihood is that the bank or lienholder still possesses your car's title. You must reach out to your bank to get a payoff amount. It's important to ensure that your car's selling price can cover it.
  • 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.

How long will it take to sell my car?

+
βˆ’

The amount of time it takes to sell your car to a junkyard will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • The condition of your car
  • The make and model of your car
  • The demand for parts for your car model
  • The number of junkyards in your area

In general, you can expect to sell your car to a junkyard within a few days or even a week. However, if your car is in poor condition or if there is not a high demand for parts for your car model, it may take longer to sell.

Can I get a destruction certificate for my car?

+
βˆ’

Yes, you can get a destruction certificate for your car. This is a document that proves that your car has been destroyed and is no longer in existence. You may need a destruction certificate in order to cancel the registration of your car or to obtain a salvage title.

To get a destruction certificate for your car, you will need to take it to a licensed junkyard or salvage yard. The junkyard or salvage yard will then issue you a destruction certificate once they have destroyed your car.

What happens to the parts of my car that cannot be sold?

+
βˆ’

The parts of your car that cannot be sold when you take them to a junkyard will typically be recycled or scrapped.

  • Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects.
  • Scrapping is the process of breaking down metal into smaller pieces so that it can be melted down and reused.

Junkyards have a variety of ways to recycle and scrap car parts. Some have their own recycling and scrapping facilities, while others contract with other companies like auto wreckers to do this work.

How do I negotiate the price of a used car or part?

+
βˆ’

Here are some tips on how to negotiate the price of a used car or part:

  • Do your research. Before you start negotiating, it's important to do your research and know what the fair market value is for the car or part you're interested in. You can use online resources like Kelley Blue Book or Edmunds to get an estimate.
  • Be prepared to walk away. If you're not getting the price you want, be prepared to walk away. This shows the seller that you're serious about getting a good deal and that you're not afraid to go elsewhere.
  • Don't be afraid to make an offer. Don't be afraid to make an offer on the car or part you're interested in. Even if your offer is rejected, it can start a negotiation process.
  • Be willing to compromise. It's unlikely that you'll get the exact price you want, so be willing to compromise. Be prepared to meet the seller halfway or to negotiate on other aspects of the deal, such as the trade-in value of your current car or the financing terms.
  • Be polite and professional. Even if you're feeling frustrated, it's important to be polite and professional during the negotiation process. This will make it more likely that the seller will be willing to work with you.

Do they have a return or refund policy?

+
βˆ’

Yes, many have a return or refund policy, but it can vary from junkyard to junkyard. It is important to ask about their return and refund policy before you purchase a part.

Some may offer a full refund on parts that are returned within a certain period of time, while others may only offer a partial refund or a store credit. Some may also have restrictions on what parts can be returned, such as electrical parts or parts that have been installed.

Do they offer part installation services?

+
βˆ’

Some offer part installation services, but not all. It is important to contact the business in advance to ask if they offer this service and to get a quote.

If you are considering having a junkyard install a part for you, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure the company is reputable and that their mechanics are qualified to install the part.
  • Get everything in writing, including the price of the part, the cost of installation, and the junkyard's warranty policy.
  • Be prepared to wait a few days for the installation to be completed. Junkyards are often busy and may not be able to install the part immediately.

If you are not comfortable having a junkyard install a part for you, you can always take the part to a mechanic or auto body shop. However, this will likely cost more than having the junkyard install the part for you.

Do they offer shipping?

+
βˆ’

Yes, many junkyards and salvage yards offer shipping services for the parts you purchase. However, it's essential to check with the specific yard you're dealing with, as policies can vary. Here's what you should consider:

  1. Local Pickup: Some yards may require you to pick up parts in person, which can be cost-effective if you're nearby.
  2. Regional Shipping: Many junkyards offer regional shipping, which can be relatively affordable if you're within a certain distance from the yard.
  3. Nationwide Shipping: Some larger yards provide nationwide shipping, allowing you to get parts delivered across the country. This option can be more expensive due to longer distances.
  4. Shipping Costs: Shipping costs can vary based on the size and weight of the part, as well as the distance it needs to travel.
  5. Shipping Time: Ask about the estimated shipping time to ensure it meets your needs. Before purchasing a part, inquire about the yard's shipping options, costs, and policies. Also, verify the condition of the part and its compatibility with your vehicle to avoid any issues upon delivery.
