What Documents Do You Require To Purchase My Car?

To do away with your old car, all you need is to make sure that your title is signed according to state regulations. After that, you need to take out all personal items from the car and hand over the keys and title.

That's it. You will receive a business check once the transaction is complete, and you will be finally free of the burden of a salvage car.

I Don't Have My Vehicle Title In Hand. Is That A Problem?

If you currently lost your title, you can still trade in your vehicle to us. However, you will have to get another certified copy of the title.

The way you can do this is by heading over to your state's DMV website: CA DMV - Title Transfers And Changes.

You will have to pay a small fee for a certified copy of your title. The following step is to upload a clearly visible picture of the duplicate title to CarBrain — and that's it!

How Do You Calculate Your Quotes For Damaged Cars?

Along with considering your year, make and model, we also look at your car's present actual a seized motor, mileage, vehicle accident report and more. We'll consider any upgrades you've made to the car, as well as others factors like its current location (be sure to provide the right current address for your vehicle).

The best way to get the most accurate offer possible is to provide the VIN and photos.

Replacing pieces in your vehicle may not necessarily get you a better offer — valuable parts like the engine and transmission are costly to replace, and less valuable parts won't significantly increase your offer.

Additionally, cannot guarantee that your quote will increase if you wait to sell it. Quotes are based on current market rates, which can be unpredictable.

Towing is included in all offers for FREE — which means bringing it to us isn't necessary and won't affect your offer.
