What kind of car are you selling?
Knowing what kind of car we are buying is the first step to getting you an instant offer. Year, make, and model will be needed, and we'll ask some questions about the current condition of the vehicle as well.

No matter what you’ve got sitting out in the driveway, there’s a good chance we’ll take it and pay you cold hard cash for it. Take a look at what types of junkers we’ll take off your hands and what you can get for them.
The most ocean-whipped piles of scrap are worth somewhere between $50 and $150. If you point at one of the garbage cars in the parking lot of the Mariners’ stadium, we probably won’t ask any questions.
For the cars that still have some functioning parts, we’ll pony up between $100 and $200 depending on how serviceable the car is.
Not really junkers
The cars which are functional enough to drive but might be a bit unsightly could be worth up to $10,000 as far as we are concerned. We won’t ask you why you’re selling a perfectly good car for us, though!
How to sign your Washington car title
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Washington title when you are selling your vehicle. If there are multiple owners listed on the title, they must all sign the title unless the names are separated with "OR".
- All signing and printing takes place on the front of a Washington state title and requires three signatures and one printed name. Make sure you don't print or sign anything on the back of the title.
- First sign the front of your title where it says "Signature of first legal owner releases all interest in the vehicle described above".
- Next, sign the front of your title where it says "Signature of registered owner releases all interest in the vehicle described above".
- Then sign the front of the title in the section labeled "Assignment by registered owner" on the line that says "Signature of transferor/seller"
Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign in the dealer section.
- Finally, print your name on the front of the title where it says "PRINTED name of transferor/seller".
Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.
How to get a duplicate Washington title
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Washington title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Washington you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
- Fill out the Washington Affidavit of Loss form.
- Bring your duplicate title application to your local vehicle licensing office or mail your application to your local vehicle licensing office or quick title office.
- Please note that there is an eight to ten-week waiting period before a duplicate title can be issued, and the cost is $19.00. "Quick Title" service is $69.00, and you will receive your new title in the same day.

Frequently asked questions
Can you buy cars in Washington State without title?
Under some circumstances, yes. However, we cannot purchase every vehicle without a title. There are certain restrictions based on age and location. At minimum, you would need to produce a photo ID with a matching registration to prove that you legally own the vehicle. Sometimes buyers also require an affidavit in lieu of title as well.
What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?
Washington often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Washington DOL.
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 DOL 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 DOL that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.

"I will be removing the car stereo from the center console (it's a custom stereo). The battery is dead, but with a new battery, the engine will start and run with no issues. The car is driveable, but the catalytic converter broke at the weld, so it drags on the ground. "
"I bought the vehicle from a friend, and they said I could use their plate, but I got a newer car and haven't switched anything into my name. The only part of the title that's filled out is the seller part, so the buyer part can still be filled in. "
"The vehicle has a cylinder three misfire in the engine. It will start and everything runs smoothly except for Cylinder three which knocks because it's not igniting. The spark plugs need to be replaced, and one wire to the control box for Cylinder three. After that, this car would run perfectly fine. To a mechanic, this would be an easy fix."
"The vehicle needs an O2 sensor, a windshield washer fluid tank and motor, part of the bumper and a button for the gas tank and the trunk. It's leaking steering fluid, and there's a problem with some ball joint on the front axle. It could be fixed and driven with a couple grand if someone wants a project. "
"The vehicle does run, or at least it did two years ago when it was driven into our garage where it has sat ever since. There may be some frame rusting. It has one flat tire. I have a full, unmounted spare/replacement tire. "
"The title is under my mom's name, but it is my car, and she will bring the title if you guys can offer a reasonable amount of cash. The cash I get from this Nissan is going into my new car."
