Questions And Answers

10/08/2019

My Car Title Has A Lien On It. Can I Still Sell It To You?

CarBrain will only purchase vehicles with liens on them if our estimate is equal to or greater than the value of the lien. Unfortunately, if your car has negative equity, we won't be purchasing it, as it wouldn't make sense for us to do so.

If your car was declared a total loss, you may be able to get a check from your insurance company, retain it, and then get a second check from CarBrain. This would allow you to maximize the value received from the sale of the car.

My Vehicle Is Accumulating Fees. Will You Cover Them?

CarBrain.com does not charge nor cover fees. If your wrecked vehicle is in a location where you may be accumulating fees, you need to let us know quickly so that we may try our best to accommodate your situation. 

While we do not cover fees you may be accumulating, we also not charge any fees for our service. You get paid for selling your vehicle to us — that's it. We always come to you in California.

How Much Time Will It Take To Remove My Car In California? It's Urgent.

Towing partners provide a range of time that they will come to pick up the car. You can ask to receive a one-hour heads up from the service provider if you want a more specific time.

Unfortunately, CarBrain can not guarantee same-day pick-up. However, please let us know if your car is accumulating fees. We will attempt to work with our towing partners in order to see how quickly we can pick up your car.

On some occasions, we can prioritize your pick-up and get your vehicle faster. Let your associate buyer know if you're accumulating fees so we can attempt to accommodate you.

What Is My Old Scrap Vehicle Worth In California?

You can get money for your scrap vehicle even when it can't drive. Even junk cars are still worth some money — after all, there are plenty of parts that can be harvested, melted down and reused by knowledgeable vehicle buyers. The heavier your car is, the more you can get out of it.

However, local values in California can change depending on local supply and demand. You could get anywhere from $100 to $1,000 for your car depending on the current market and your vehicle. The best way to learn your vehicle's value is to receive an estimate from CarBrain.com!
