Old and Beaten

Age and condition have the most impact in deciding how much your car is worth. This category of cars include the vehicles that are rotted, unable to run, and don’t have any usable parts. These cars are still worth something even if they’re only used for scrap metal. We can often pay between $150 and $300 for these vehicles.

Moderately Damaged

Many people find themselves with a car that will cost them more in repairs than the car is worth. junkyards purchase these cars for their parts or salvage for scrap. Nearly 75% of these cars are reusable or have recyclable pieces. We pay top dollar for cars, even if they don’t run and have body damage.

Used, Not Junk

Cash for junk cars in Michigan isn’t limited to cars that are no longer drivable. You might have forgotten about that Toyota Camry in your garage that needs work. But, that doesn’t mean that it’s useless. The right buyer may be able to put your car back on the road or use it for other repairs.

  2. First sign the front of the title where indicated by "Signature of Seller(s)".
    Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
  3. Print (don't sign) your name on the front of the title, where it reads "Printed Name of Seller(s)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

Frequently asked questions about selling a car in Michigan

I don’t have my title, can you still buy my car in Michigan?

Yes! In some cases, we can purchase vehicles with no title in some cases. However, our no title offers are often significantly lower than offers with title. You’ll also be asked to prove that you own the vehicle. The buyer may ask for a photo ID that matches a current, non-expired registration. We do not guarantee purchase of any vehicle without a title.

What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?

Michigan often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Michigan SoS.

Do I need to turn in my license plates?

Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local SoS office.

What should I do about my auto insurance?

You will need to notify your auto insurance company that you have sold the vehicle, so they can either cancel your policy if the vehicle was sold, or transfer/renew the policy on your new vehicle.
