Selling a junk car to a reputable salvage yard in Indianapolis is easy to do, but it does require proof of ownership. If you are ready to sell your junked vehicle, but seem to have misplaced the title, continue reading to learn what options you have and how to get started.
Lost, Stolen or Faulty Car Titles
If your car title is lost, stolen, or flawed, you have the option of having it replaced. To replace an Indiana certificate of title under these conditions, you would have to visit your local BMV to get approval to sell the vehicle. According to the BMV, “A person who owns a vehicle that has a certificate of title that is faulty, lost, or destroyed, or who is the possessor of an abandoned vehicle may apply to the BMV for authority to sell, give away, or dispose of the vehicle for scrap metal without applying for a certificate of title.”
The BMV goes on to say that they must give you an approved Certificate of Authority – Disposal of a Motor Vehicle – State Form 55018 to give to the automotive salvage recycler as proof of ownership. Visit the Indiana BMV website for more information about car titles and to download this form.
Once you have proof of ownership, whether that be the actual car title, or alternative documentation such as the registration or a Certificate of Authority, you can get started on selling your junk vehicle.
