How Do You Transfer Ownership When Using A Junk Car Removal Service?

Are you in the process of scrapping your old vehicle? Junk car removal services can help take any vehicle off your hands, whether damaged, unwanted, or simply too outdated for today’s road safety standards. But first, how do you know that the vehicle is transferred correctly?

Things To Do Before Going To A Junk Car Removal Service Provider

  • Clean Out Your Personal Belongings

Many owners forget to clean out their cars because they’re in a hurry to get rid of them. However, this step is one of the most important tasks before you junk your vehicle. So make sure to check every nook and cranny of the car, removing its documents from the glove compartment and trunk.

In addition, look under your vehicle’s seats and rugs and remove any trash you may have forgotten about in the past few years.

  • Transfer The Car’s Ownership

No matter how you choose to sell your vehicle, you must make sure to transfer its ownership beforehand. Otherwise, the car will still be under your name, and you will become liable for anything the new owner does to it.

But how do you transfer the car’s ownership to a removal company? In New South Wales, you will need to submit a notice of disposal within 14 days of the transfer. You must first check if you are eligible for the process and prepare the following:

  • Your car’s NSW registration plate number
  • Your NSW driver’s licence or Photo Card details
  • The new owner’s driver’s licence details or motor dealer’s licence number
  • The date of disposal
  • The sale price or market value of the vehicle

You can easily submit these requirements online through the Service NSW website. However, if you don’t have a licence, you may need to submit a paper form offline.

  • Run Out Of Gas

When was the last time you drove your vehicle? It likely still contains gas, and you need to drain it all out properly. Running your car out of gas isn’t a requirement when selling to a removal company; however, it helps speed up the process.

You can use a hose and an approved gas container to remove the gas or drive the vehicle until it’s almost empty.
