If you have a junk car standing in your front yard and is no longer in a running condition, you cannot hope for many chances of selling it and getting a lot of offers. If you are very keen to get rid of it and you don’t have a title, the best you can do about it is selling it for parts. If you have a clear title for the vehicle, you can arrange to get it towed away to a junkyard or a company that works in the field of removing junk car. This way, you not only stand to earn some money, but also get rid of the clunker occupying space in your driveway.
What happens if you don’t have a title for the car?

Without a clear ownership proof, towing and scrapyard companies will not be too willing to go forward with a deal with you. In fact, you are also vulnerable to be scammed and duped. In you have a junk car without title, you can still earn some money in the following ways-
Selling its parts

If you have no idea about these parts, invest some time in research and you will come to know about the amount that can be earned on different auction sites for specific valuable parts. Take out some time, remove these parts from the car, get them tidied up and post them available for sale. It is important to add clear description of these parts in the listing clarifying its age and present condition. Also add the cost of shipping to the asking price. This will help you fetch good money from car parts.
Selling its tires
