Frequently Asked Questions

What is a junk yard?

Junk yards, also known as "vehicle scrapping" or "demolition car yards" are the places to which cars out of service are taken. There are junk yards for motorcycles, boats, airplanes, etc., but most of the junk yards we can find are for cars and trucks. These junk yards usually operate locally, being the final destination of cars that are towed outside the accident site or where they stopped working.

Do junkyards buy parts?

On some occasions deposits can also buy broken down vehicles from insurance companies, owners or the same cities where the vehicles are towed. They dismantle the vehicles that buy or acquire and save the usable parts that were in good condition or that were still functional and can be used by cars of the same manufacturer or similar. Unusable metal parts are discarded or sold to companies that are responsible for recycling metals.

Does my car need a salvage title for a junkyard to buy it?

The process to give a salvage title is started by insurers when they inspect the car after an accident and they determine that they have damages that exceed 70% of the value of the car, so they declare it as a total loss. Then, the state vehicle agency issues the salvage certificate, which indicates that it cannot be driven unless it is repaired. This title at no time is responsible for giving certain privileges of car sales in a junk yard.

How much can I get for a junk car?

If you want to sell a car in a junk yard the value that is offered to you will depend on several factors, starting with the deposit you are going to offer it to and the details and characteristics of your car: year of manufacture, severity of damage received, damage to the most valuable pieces, etc. You must have all these factors in mind and very present so that they do not try to pay you much less than you could actually receive for the car.

How do I sell my car to a junkyard?

There is some documentation that must be submitted when you want to sell a car to a junk yard: National ID Card, Data sheet, Traffic permit and Fees.

How do junkyards determine my car's value?

As we briefly explain in a previous question, deposits usually buy cars that no other person would buy due to the damage they have. But many people are left in doubt of how much they will pay for their car and how they determine the value of the car.

It is important that you keep in mind that in this aspect a subjective response can be given, since factors such as the age, the model of the car, its brand, its state, the state of the pieces, etc, come into play. The truth is that until a few years ago it was really complicated to be able to buy the price offered by each deposit, since they had to go to each of them, so that they could determine the condition of the car and its parts. Or, that someone from the warehouse moved to the place where the car is located.

Fortunately, today there are different alternatives to be able to price a car online and very quickly and easily. Even in some cases this can be done by WhatsApp, although it is clear that this may have certain disadvantages in terms of reliability and safety.

To get a clearer idea of what a deposit pays for a car you can visit the deposit website and enter some of the most important information about the car in question. It will also be necessary to send some pictures of the different parts of the car so that the people in the warehouse have a clearer idea about their status. Once this is done, the deposit will contact you and give you an offer with the value of the car.

Should I buy a salvage car?

This can be a good option to buy a car at a better price. However, it is important that you consider certain key points to make sure you are making a good purchase.

First, you must verify that the agency that invoices the sale corresponds to the data of the unit, in addition to that the original documents of the vehicle must be requested. On the other hand, it is also advisable to check if the car has been in a robbery investigation process and if so, that the case has already been regularized and terminated.

Finally, take care of validating the proper functioning of the car with a certified expert or a trusted person with knowledge that helps you to verify that the car you are buying is in a good condition.
