If you are planning on giving away your old car to a junk yard so that they can turn it to scrap in return for money then you should try and be careful about a few things before you go on ahead with the whole process. Many people do not put in too much thought in to sending off their car to the junk yard but it could actually save you a lot of trouble if you take care of a few things before you actually have you car sent away.
First of all make sure that you have the title in order, and that the license plates have been removed and are ready to be submitted back to the relevant authorities. The reason both of these things are important is because they both put you legally in charge of the car even if it has been taken away from you by the autos junk yard. The title and papers of the car must be transferred over to the junk yard owners as they are now officially the new legal owners of the car, even if they are going to dismantle it, and anything they do with the car is not your headache. The license plates should also be removed for similar reasons along with the fact that you might need to turn in your license plates to the relevant authority before you can cancel the insurance on the car, otherwise you might end up with an insurance bill for a car you no longer own.
Next you should take special care to make sure that all valuable have been taken out of the car and that there is nothing that has been left behind that you will want or need later. To find out more about junking cars you can click here.
