How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in North Carolina

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in North Carolina can be a difficult process. Unfortunately, you cannot just sell any junk car that ends up on your property if you do not own it. You'll need to follow the North Carolina abandoned vehicle removal procedures. We have given a general overview of what that entails below.

You can read more about selling an abandoned vehicle in North Carolina

  1. To have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must first contact local law enforcement. A (7) seven day warning sticker will be affixed to the vehicle.
    If the vehicle remains on your private property after the (7) seven day hold, you may have the vehicle removed by private tow.
  2. If the vehicle remains unclaimed for upwards of (30) thirty days, the salvage yard may begin the process of selling the abandoned vehicle through public sale/auction.

Will you buy cars with no title in North Carolina?

Yes, we have purchased many cars that didn’t have a title in North Carolina. However, the offers are much lower. You’ll also need to be able to prove you are the legal owner by presenting a photo ID like your license that matches a valid registration or insurance card.

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

North Carolina often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your North Carolina DMV.

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 DMV 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.

Is there anything else I need to do?

You may need to notify your local DMV that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.

Selling a car in North Carolina? Here’s how much you can expect

We buy cars in North Carolina, and you might be surprised by just how much we can offer you. However, we do categorize our cars into three groups when evaluating your clunker:

Nothing but Steel, Rubber, and Glass

Is your car now just a pile of scrap metal? Well, if that’s the case, it will be recycled or sold to North Carolina car buyers and junkyards for raw materials. Because of this, the car’s size and weight will determine its value. You can count on us to offer you something around $200 to $500 such a ride before we tow it off to an auto salvage yard.

Maybe Needs a Little Work to Get Running

Think your car would be good to drive after a few repairs? Then congratulations: you have what we call an “in-betweener.” It can be hard for us to give you an exact amount upfront, but you can expect these to fetch much money than complete junkers.

A Used Car

Did you still drive your “junker” to work and back every day? If that’s the case, then you can expect a cash offer of $100 to $10,000 from us.

    "A part of the trim came off on one of the sliding doors, and it is in the vehicle. The starter appears to have died, and I was told it sounds like a valve on a piston has cracked. The check engine light was on, and it kept stalling. There are fairly new components in the vehicle such as the fuel pump, filter, muffler and rack which were replaced no more than three years ago. New front brakes and a new front axle were put on about a year ago. Around the same time, new spark plugs, wires, and a coil pack were put in. One mirror is cracked, and there is rust. "
