We Have Outlined Some FAQ’S On How To Scrap A Car Without The title

What is The Title of a Car?

A car title is a legal document that provides proof of ownership of a vehicle. The title will contain important information such as the owner’s name, the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), and such.

What to Do When You Don’t Have the Car Title?

In a private car sale, it is compulsory for you to transfer the title of the vehicle to the new owner. But if you choose to Sell Your Car to a Wrecker/recycler, then this is not necessary. If you don’t have the title of the vehicle, then you need to provide other documents such as the registration papers and your driver’s license to confirm ownership of the vehicle.

We need to confirm that you’re the legal owner of the vehicle. So, any relevant document that states that you’re the vehicle owner can be considered as proof. This is important as we will not accept stolen vehicles and hence need to establish vehicle ownership beyond doubt.
