FAQs about junkyards in Nevada

What legal requirements do I need to meet to sell my car to a junkyard in Nevada?

+
โˆ’

In order to sell your car to a junkyard in Nevada, 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 Nevada 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 Nevada 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 Nevada DMV for the most up-to-date information and forms.

Can I sell a junk car without a title in Nevada?

+
โˆ’

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 much money can I expect to get for my car at a junkyard in Nevada?

+
โˆ’

How much money can I expect to get for my car at a junkyard in Nevada?

  • The condition of your car.
  • The make and model of your car.
  • The current market value of scrap metal.
  • The demand for parts for your car model.

In general, you can expect to get between $100 and $500 for your junk. However, if your vehicle is in good condition or has valuable parts, you may be able to get more.

Do they offer shipping?

+
โˆ’

Yes, many of them ship parts. However, there may be additional shipping charges. Be sure to ask about shipping charges before you buy any parts.

How do I remove a part from a junkyard?

+
โˆ’

If you are planning on removing a part from a vehicle yourself, be sure to take precautions to avoid injury. Be aware of your surroundings and be careful not to overexert yourself. You should also ask the staff for assistance if needed. We recommend that you bring:

  • Pliers
  • Ratchets
  • Wrenches
  • Sawsall
  • Screw drivers
  • Hammer
  • Impact driver
  • Extensions
  • Sockets SAE and Metric
  • Breaker bar
  • Penetrating Fluid

What is the difference between a junkyard and a salvage yard?

+
โˆ’

While the terms are often used interchangeably, a salvage yard may focus more on recycling and reselling parts.

Can they ask me for an entry fee?

+
โˆ’

Some junkyards may require you to pay a small entrance or admission fee (usually a few bucks) in order to enter their facilities. With this money they can cover their administrative and maintenance costs and ensure that they receive customers who are truly interested in parts.
