How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Virginia

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Virginia 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 Virginia 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 Virginia

  1. To have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property, you must first use the 17-digit VIN number to locate the last registered owner and/or lienholder. You must begin the Abandoned Vehicle Process (AVP) at your local DMV with a $25.00 fee.
  2. The DMV will inform the last registered owner and/or lienholder via certified mail that they have (15) fifteen days to remove the vehicle.
  3. If the owners/lienholders of the abandoned vehicle fail to remove the vehicle in the allotted time frame, you may post a (21) twenty-one day long intent to auction the vehicle through the DMV website. After the posting period ends, you apply for the title the vehicle, sell it, or have it demolished.

Frequent questions we get in Virginia

Can I sell you my car or truck in Virginia if I don’t have the title?

Sorry, we would love to, but in most cases we can’t. Not many of our VA buyers are currently buying vehicles without a title. As the legal owner you’ll need to obtain a valid title before you can sell the vehicle to us, or to anyone else. Let us know if you need help with that process!

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

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

  • Zach's 2003 Honda Accord

    "I was in a bumper-to-bumper accident a few years ago. It didn't cause any serious damage, but the vehicle had a realignment as well as having a new ignition system and battery installed. Two of the tires are relatively new, and one is deflated. The car itself will run just fine, but it may require a few tune ups."

  • Judith's 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
    1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

    "I hit a guardrail and messed up the bumper and the wheel well. One headlight is dangling, and the wheel well rubs against the tire. It will start, but the battery needs to be charged. It has not been used for nine months."

  • Shanna's 2002 Pontiac Aztek
    2002 Pontiac Aztek

    "The engine had the knock of death sound. The top half was replaced but not lowered. Some pieces may be missing for repairs on the van that I also want to be junked. The battery and starter are inside of the cab but not installed. It hasn't been turned on in over three years, but it was still running before it was parked. The battery isn't in it, so it obviously won't turn on right now."

  • Sapphire's 1999 Oldsmobile Alero
    1999 Oldsmobile Alero

    "It's a good car, but I can't drive it because I need a new rack and pinion on it. I'm junking it because I can't get it fixed. The labor costs to get it done are too high. "

  • Lauryn's 2004 Saturn Ion
    2004 Saturn Ion

    "The vehicle has minor dents and one rear small window is removed. With some work, the car should be good to go, but I'm not wanting to put any more cash into it."

  • Alex's 1998 Toyota Camry
    1998 Toyota Camry

    "The only thing keeping the car from running is a wiring harness. The harness was broken today when the tire failed, and it ran great for 70 miles after that, but then the battery died. It only has 117,000 miles on it. "
