What Do I Need to Sell My Junk Car in Chicago?

You need to verify ownership of the vehicle before you can sell it. In most cases this means you need:

We follow Illinois Secretary of State's Office guidelines when buying junk cars.

Can I sell my car with no title in Chicago?

But please note, even if we can buy junk cars with no title the offers will be significantly lower.

Does the title need to be in my name?

Yes, to legally sell a vehicle you must be the legal owner. The title must fully be in your name as well as registration.

Does my vehicle need to be complete?

While we buy cars with no catalytic converter or engine we prefer complete vehicles. Complete vehicles will net the highest offers.

How long does the process take?

Selling a junk car in Chicago only requires a few minutes of your time. Quickly receive an offer, schedule removal at your convenience, and simply hand over the keys and paperwork.

What happens to my vehicle when I sell it?

Your vehicle will be auctioned or dismantled for parts, with the metal recycled based on its condition and value.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Isaiah, 2006 Nissan Altima for $1000 - The car stopped running for me

Keevon, 2007 Ford F-150 for $955 - Radiator damage i believe. It would be easier for me to sell it because it would cost more to fix it.

Kenneth, Honda Accord 2000 for $440 - I work from home and don't need a car. Plus it's old even though it's been repaired

Bronya, 2008 Chevrolet Aveo Ls for $500 - I have a new vehicle
