Welcome to our frequently asked questions page. Here we will explain our procedures and we will answer most of the questions you may have prior to junking a vehicle. When you schedule a junk car removal appointment, there are some things you can do before hand to be prepared.
Q. Do I need the title to junk my car?
A. No, you do not need to have the title and we still pay you top dollar. We take care of the necessary paperwork. See Title Help section below.
Q. So what do I need to sell my car Orlando?
A. To sell junk cars in Orlando, FL, the state requires that you have a valid ID or Driver's license. If you don't have one, then we simply will not purchase your vehicle. If you are missing the title, we must check the VIN number. The VIN will be on the dashboard on the driver's side. It is a small rectangular metal plate with 17 letters and digits stamped on it.
Q. How long will it take to pick up my junk or used vehicle?
A. The time necessary for pickup depends on what time of day it is, how many drivers we have available at the time and the location of the vehicle. We are located in Orlando, Florida and we cover a very large portion of Florida.
Let's say you call at 3pm on any day of the week, and you are located near Orlando. We will have a driver at your location within 1-2 hours or less. If you are located in the Tampa area, we might need around 2-3 hours or we can schedule it for the next morning if you are available. However, there are cases that we may already have a driver near your location and in those cases, we are able to pick up your vehicle within minutes.
Q. Do I need to be present when the tow truck driver picks up my car?
A. Yes. You will need to be available at the time of pickup to receive the cash and sign the bill of sale. If you are not available to meet us at your vehicle, we can set up special arrangements by email or fax and work around your schedule.
Q. If my junk car does not have an engine or transmission, will you still pick it up?
A. Yes, however, we usually charge you to pickup shells in the Orlando area. The scrap metal value is extremely low as of the end of 2016.
Q. If my junk car has water, mold or hurricane damage, will you still buy it?
A. Yes, and we pay top cash for junk cars, flooded vehicle and wrecked automobiles.
Q. Do you pay cash for my junk car? When do I get paid?
A. Always! Payment by check are a thing of the past. Get with the times, people! We bring cash money and pay once we finalize all of the proper paperwork.
Q. Should I sell my junk car or used vehicle with an open title to just anybody?
A. NO! That would be a bad move. You have to make sure that the company you are selling your vehicle to is a real licensed and insured auto recycler, otherwise many problems may arise later on down the road.
Q. How or where do I sign my car title? (TITLE HELP)
A. Please refer to our Florida Title Assistance page
Q. Can you pick up my junk car, truck or van with no tires and or rims on it?
A. Yes, but please let us know beforehand so we know which type of tow truck to send. The price will have to be lowered since the vehicle is incomplete. If there are parts missing from any junk cars or undisclosed damage or dismantling done to body parts, interior, engine or transmission, then we would likely need to adjust the junk cars price depending on the pieces in question, since we do sell quality used parts also.
Q. What are your hours of operation? (Business Hours)
A. We are open seven days a week. Monday through Saturday from 8am until 6pm. Sunday, we are open from 9am until 4pm. However, we pickup junk and used cars late, even until or after midnight.
Q. Anything else I should do before I sell your my junk car for cash?
Q. What happens to my junk car after I sell it to Junk Cars FL Junkyard?
A. The way we dismantle an old junk vehicle always ensures environmentally friendliness. We drain all of the fluids into containers. Once we remove all of the hazardous materials, we remove the engine and transmission and other large mechanical components and stack 2 or 3 vehicle shells into our auto crusher and begin to crush the vehicles.
Our main office is located in East Orlando in Florida.
We will pick up your junk, scrap or used automobile, (truck of van) for free and pay you cash on the spot. Thanks for taking the time to learn about the correct way to sell your vehicle to an auto salvage yard in Florida.
