    Diagnose Your Junk Car Woes in Phoenix With Cash

    What do I need to sell my junk car in Phoenix?

    To sell junk cars in Phoenix one must be able to prove ownership of the vehicle.  One can prove ownership of a vehicle by providing the valid vehicle title in their name.  If the vehicle title is missing the vehicle registration and bill of sale is required to sell junk cars in The City of Champions.

    The state of Arizona requires all vehicles to be titled regardless of status. A salvage certificate of title or nonrepairable vehicle certificate of title are actually the same title form used for all vehicles with a nonrepairable or salvage title brand added. Junk cars that were purchased in other states may be sold without a title depending on state. For some states a registration and bill of sale is needed, but in other states the vehicle owner might need to apply for a duplicate title in the state the vehicle was last registered.

    How does Phoenix define a junk vehicle?

    In Phoenix junk vehicle is called an inoperable vehicle. According to Phoenix Neighborhood Services Department (NSD) an inoperable vehicle is one that is not equipped with all of the parts needed to safely operate or cannot be driven under is own power.

    According to Section 28-4881 of the state statutes a junk vehicle in Arizona is one that is in such a state of disrepair or deterioration that it can’t be dismantled or salvaged for parts and cannot be profitably restored. In other words a junk vehicle is one that only has value as scrap metal.

    Arizona and Phoenix also call junk cars nonrepairable vehicles. According to Section 28-2091 of the Arizona state statutes, a nonrepairable vehicle is one that has no value other than as parts or scrap metal or is a completely stripped recovered stolen vehicle. Salvage vehicles are also junk vehicles in Phoenix. According to Arizona the definition of salvage vehicle is one that has been stolen, wrecked, destroyed, flooded, or otherwise damaged to the extent that it is not economical to repair.

    Most junk cars are at least 15 years old or have at least 155,000 miles unless they have been wrecked or otherwise damaged. Junk vehicles in Phoenix are also called decrepit cars, totaled cars, old cars, parts cars, scrap cars, clunkers, junkers, and jalopies. Scrap car shells left over from parts cars and vehicles that would cost more to repair than they are worth also belong under the junk car definition.

    What are the laws around junking a car in Phoenix?

    The laws for junking a car in Phoenix are set by the state of Arizona. Arizona requires all vehicles in the state to be titled, which is the motivation behind most of these laws. Here are the junk car laws in Phoenix you need to know.

    • Section 28-2094 lays out the process to junk a car in Phoenix. To junk a car in Phoenix the vehicle owner must sign the title over to the junk car buyer. The junk car buyer in Phoenix then submits to the DMV an application for a dismantle certificate of title to scrap, dismantle, or destroy the vehicle. The junk car buyer must submit the Arizona certificate of title, registration card, any license plates still on the vehicle, or other ownership documents issued by another state. A vehicle owner can dismantle a vehicle on their own but must submit the application for dismantle certificate of title before proceeding to salvage parts from the vehicle if the title does not already have a salvage or nonrepairable brand.
    • Summary of acceptable ownership documents to sell junk cars in Phoenix. Selling junk cars in Phoenix requires a certificate of title. The title could have a brand as a salvage certificate of title, nonrepairable vehicle certificate of title, or dismantle certificate of title. A vehicle title from another state can be used to sell junk cars in Phoenix if the vehicle was not in the state long enough to require registration in Arizona. When junking a vehicle with a title from states that allow other ownership documents such as junk titles or bills of sale in place of a title, proof of ownership for that state is required so that the junk car buyer can apply for the dismantle certificate of title to begin recycling the vehicle.
    • Auto dismantlers and vehicle recyclers are restricted in when they can process junk cars in Phoenix. In general auto dismantlers must wait 5 days from reporting the purchase of the junk vehicle to give the DMV the opportunity to stop the dismantling of the vehicle in the even that there is a lien, additional owner, or law enforcement interest in the vehicle. An auto dismantler or junk car buyer does not have to apply for a dismantle certificate of title if the vehicle has a salvage certificate or nonrepairable vehicle certificate of title, but the purchase must still be reported with a written request to dismantle.
    • Section 28-4882 lays out how abandoned vehicles are recycled in Phoenix. It is illegal to abandon a vehicle in Phoenix and the result is a misdemeanor charge. The state of Arizona prohibits Phoenix from seizing, impounding, or removing vehicles without the permission of the vehicle owner, unless said vehicle poses a public hazard such as on a highway. Instead Phoenix must follow a specific process to attempt notification of a pending junk car sale. Once the process is complete and if no vehicle owners have come forward to claim the junk car, the state of Arizona provides authorization for the private property owner to have the abandoned car removed as scrap. The abandoned car must fall under the definition of junk vehicle set by Arizona as described above.

    The most important junk car law in Phoenix is that Arizona requires a title. A dismantle certificate of title can be obtained from the Arizona DMV by a junk car buyer or auto dismantler even when there is not an Arizona title as long as there are appropriate ownership documents from another state and the vehicle was not required to be registered in Arizona.

    What is the penalty for breaking Arizona title laws in Phoenix?

    Selling a junk car without appropriate title or other ownership documents and appropriate paperwork is illegal in the state of Arizona. Breaking title laws or illegally selling junk cars for cash in Phoenix results in a misdemeanor charge. However a felony charge is possible if it is found that fraud was committed in selling junk cars for cash in Phoenix.

    Can I get cash for junk cars with no title in Phoenix?

    Yes, you may be able to get cash for junk cars with no title in Phoenix, but it depends on the circumstances. Arizona requires all vehicles to be registered unless they already have a nonrepairable or salvage status from another state. When selling junk cars without a title purchased in another state, you can sell the junk car for cash in Phoenix if you have the ownership documents required for transfer in that state. These documents are used in place of an Arizona title when the junk car buyer files for the dismantle certificate of title from Arizona. Note that Arizona titles are now being issued, stored, and transferred electronically through the AZ MVD Now self-service website for the Phoenix DMV. Having a paper Arizona title is not required for transfer as long as the junk car seller files a sold notice to the DMV to initiate the vehicle transfer.

    How to get a replacement title in Phoenix?

    The state of Arizona is eliminating paper titles and replacement titles with them.

    Is it a requirement to notify the DMV when you junk a car in Phoenix?

    No, it may not be a requirement to notify the DMV when you junk a car in Phoenix. It is a requirement to notify the Arizona MVD anytime a vehicle is sold in Phoenix. This cancels the registration, and any credit will be applied to your account to use on registering the next vehicle. However when selling a junk car for parts or scrap only the Sold Notice is not required. Instead the junk car buyer submits the application for a dismantle certificate of title, at which time the registration is automatically cancelled.

    Can I store junk cars on my property in Phoenix?

    Yes, you can store junk cars on your property in Phoenix as long as they are not visible from beyond the property line. In other words, as long as you have appropriate screening so that the junk car can’t be seen from the public sidewalk, street, or by other neighbors you can keep as many vehicles as you want in any condition. All vehicles must be registered or have a salvage, nonrepairable, or dismantle certificate of title in Arizona. Car covers, tarps, bamboo, shades, and similar materials are not acceptable screening. According to the Phoenix Neighborhood Services Department (NSD), fencing and screening walls must be structuraly sound and made from the same materials, in good aesthetic condition, and can be no more than 6 feet high in a rear yard. Junk cars cannot be stored in a front or side yard. Having junk cars on private property in public view is a nonmoving parking traffic violation.

    Can I sell my car for parts in Phoenix?

    Yes, you can sell your car for parts in Phoenix if you know how to remove, clean, and sell the reusable car parts. The city of Phoenix allows residents to dismantle junk cars on private property as long as it is not in public view. This means that if you can find the right buyers for used car parts you can sell your car for parts in Phoenix for more money.

    There are 4 steps to sell your junk car for parts in The Desert City. First, one must submit an application for dismantle certificate of title before beginning to remove the parts for resale. Second one must remove and clean the valuable parts. Third one must find and sell the used car parts to the buyers that need them. Finally one must recycle the scrap car shell by selling the junk car to a junk car buyer or auto recycler. This process takes quite a bit of time and effort, and for many it is easier to sell junk cars for cash instead of sell a car for parts in Phoenix. More about selling a car for parts.

    • Catalytic converter
    • Engine
    • Transmission
    • Tires
    • Battery
    Junk car buyers in Phoenix update the value of junk cars to take into account missing parts.  Removing the catalytic converter or engine may further limit your options when selling a junk car for cash in Phoenix. The majority of junk car buyers buy junk cars whole.

    Is it possible to junk a car with a lien in Phoenix?

    No, it is impossible to junk a car with a lien in Phoenix or another other city in Arizona. All cities and states in the US prohibit the sale of junk cars with a lien.
