New Jersey, say goodbye to your junk car

And say hello to cash! Holding onto a junk car is a recipe for disaster: there’s no reason to keep it around, as it’s just costing you money each month. No matter what you do, there’s an endless list of repairs to deal with. But selling it isn’t always easy. First, you try private buyers. They’re not interested, unfortunately. Next, you try calling dealerships. They offer you next to nothing for it. Finally, you ask around at scrap yards. They offer you pennies, and then try to charge last minute fees. What a headache! Don’t waste your time here in New Jersey: when you’re ready to sell your junk car, just call Junk Car Traders at 855-959-1325! We make it easy to sell your junk car in New Jersey.

How to Get an Operable Salvage Title in New Jersey In the state of New Jersey, specific requirements have to be met if you want to repair a vehicle that’s been severely damaged and labeled as “salvaged.” If your car has been in a serious accident and is in need of major repairs, it’s important to follow the necessary rules and regulations outlined by the state of New Jersey. You can’t simply repair your vehicle and put it back on the road without notifying the appropriate authorities. In some instances, it may be better to simply junk your car for cash rather than attempting to obtain an operable salvage title for it. If you’re looking to sell your junk car or salvaged vehicle for as much cash as possible, Junk Car Traders can help. First, though, let’s take a look at what’s involved in obtaining a salvage title in New Jersey, and how that title can then be converted into an operable salvage title. Getting a New Jersey Salvage Title If your vehicle has been heavily damaged in an accident, your insurance company may label your vehicle as a so-called “total loss.” If this happens, you have two options. First, you can take either a full or partial settlement from your insurance company. If you go this route, you’ll simply sign your vehicle’s title over to your insurance company, and they’ll take care of the rest. Alternatively, though, you can opt to keep your vehicle and obtain a salvage certificate. This can result in more cash in your pocket at the end of the day, as you may be able to get more for your vehicle in the form of scrap metal than the amount of cash your insurance company offers you. In order to get a salvage title in New Jersey, you’ll first need to fill out an Application for Salvage Certificate of Title, or form OS/SS-61. When submitting this form, it’s important to also submit Form BA-28, the Insurance Listing Sheet form (which your insurance company will have already filled out), along with the vehicle’s existing title. If you have a lien on your vehicle, you’ll need to settle the lien and provide proof of lien satisfaction as well. Finally, you’ll need to pay the fee associated with the application for a salvage certificate. How to Obtain an Operable Salvage Title for  a Junk Car in New Jersey After you’ve received your salvage certificate, you’ll have the option of trying to repair your vehicle and get it back on the road. However, this process is somewhat complicated in New Jersey. In order to receive approval to put your newly repaired salvage vehicle back into service, you’ll need to follow the information included in this guide from the New Jersey DMV. Essentially, you’ll have to submit your repaired salvage vehicle for a very thorough inspection. Be sure to read all of the information in this guide carefully, as you’ll need to account for a number of things including the parts used in repairing your car, before and after photos, and more. If the New Jersey DMV inspects and approves your repaired vehicle, you’ll receive what’s called an operable salvage title and be allowed to drive it again. In many cases, though, getting a salvage vehicle back into running condition might not be practical or affordable. If you have a salvage vehicle that you need to sell, look no further than Junk Car Traders. We pay top dollar for junk cars, and we’re ready to put cash in your hands for your New Jersey salvage vehicle today. Call us now at 855-959-1325!

Now it’s swelteringly hot out, and you’re AC is done for. You’re trying to run errands, but you’re falling asleep at the wheel because you’re so hot. The summer breeze is not so cool, and you feel just as hot whether the windows are up or down.

Unless a new battery is going to restore a vehicle to road ready condition and the rest of the vehicle is also in decent condition then it does not really make sense to just replace the battery in hopes that you will substantially increase the value of your car. As long as you tell us about any new parts that you might have recently replaced in your vehicle prior to selling it to us then we will figure that in and it usually means that you will at least get what you paid for the battery. However since we buy junk cars regardless of the condition and still work hard to get you the maximum amount possible.

You should give us the basic information about your junk car as well as additional information at the time that we quote you so that we can determine how many components can be resold or reused.

A missing title may put a kink in the sale process but we can overcome and still buy your junk car. If you do not have the title then you should call us for assistance or contact your local DMV to obtain a replacement. However if the vehicle is in such a condition that it will never be back on the road and is only going to be recycled for its metal that will be metals down as scrap metal then we do not need a title.

We make donating your junk car as easy as possible since we do not require but a small amount of additional paperwork for your to complete. Some sellers want to know if they can get a tax deduction or write off for their junk car donation and we honestly cannot give you a firm answer.

Selling a burnt car may seem impossible but it actually is not very hard. The first thing that you need to do is call us and let us know that your car has fire damage. Then we can tell you how much it is worth. We sell these types of cars for scrap metal so it may be worth quite a bit. Call us today to get the selling process started.

It is easier when you are present when we come to tow our car. Our tow truck drivers prefer it. However if you truly cannot be there then you can find someone who you trust a lot to be present. Call us today to get the selling process started.

You do not need to be present when we come to tow your junk car but we do prefer that you are. We are happy to reschedule to a different time if that makes things easier for you. Go ahead and give us a call and we can arrange for a tow truck to be present.

Yes we can. We give the highest average quotes for junk cars in the country. You can call around and see that our quotes are highly competitive. We will throw in free tow truck pickup as well. Give us a call you want to get the most money for your junk car as quickly and easily as possible.

If you have a heavily damaged car that was insured then you need to contact your insurance company to see if you are able to keep the vehicle in its current condition. Also until you have another vehicle to insure then you want to be sure that they turn off the requirement for insurance on that vehicle. But in most cases you will need to replace the title with a salvage title. Our professional agents are happy to help you with any questions. Once you have connected with your insurance company and received instructions on what you need to do then give us a call so that we can tell you how much we can pay you for the vehicle.

Payment for the sale of your junk car is transacted at the time that the tow truck operator arrives to pick up your vehicle. First you need to give us a call so that we can get started on the process. The sooner that you call then the quicker we can give you a free quote After you accept the quote then the next process to set up for free towing gets you closer to your guaranteed payment.

In certain cases we may be able to buy a car without the title. However the title is makes the sale process go faster and smoother. It is also the one document that is needed for us to give you the best price possible. Without it you will receive a lower price and also it can create additional work for us. We will be happy to help you to get a title replacement if you inform us that you are unable to locate the copy.
