How Selling Your Vehicle With CarBrain.com Online Works

Selling a vehicle with CarBrain.com begins with a cash appraisal. The accuracy of the cash quote depends on the accuracy of the info you provided. Remember to include images and as many details as possible! The process takes about 90 seconds end-to-end and is an easy service from start to finish.

After saying yes to our offer, setting aside a date for towing at a time that works for you is the next step. At CarBrain, we give our towing partners 24 to 48 business hours to tow the vehicle. We can also schedule the pickup at a time that is most convenient for you. This will all be worked out over the telephone, so that we can promptly pick up your vehicle and get you paid quickly.

What's The Fair Market Value Of A Non-Working Vehicle In Michigan?

Your car will receive a different appraisal depending on its year, make, model and other factors such as its present condition or its mechanical condition. Here are some considerations to keep in mind: Does the car's electricity operate correctly? Does the car have a seized motor? What is the mileage of the vehicle? This can help us determine your vehicle's market value.

What distinguishes CarBrain from local junkyards close to you is that we price out vehicles by taking all these little pieces of information into account, rather than merely considering basic details. This means we figure out your car's actual cash value, rather than a rough estimate based on size and weight. 

What About The Michigan Car Title?

Selling your car to CarBrain in Michigan is a fairly simple process. When you request an offer from us, we ask for the VIN. We might also ask for a photocopy, scan or picture of the vehicle title. This is to verify that the car is being sold by the legal owner of the car. If everything matches, you can then take out any personal stuff from the vehicle, wait for the driver to arrive and get your check! If you have additional questions, please check out this page.

I Misplaced My Vehicle Title. What Should I Do?

No worries — you can get a certified copy of your title to wrap up the sales process. The way this is done is by going to your state's DMV page. You will need to pay a small fee for a certified copy of the title. The following step is to upload a clearly visible picture of the title to CarBrain — and you've finished!

Things To Know

What Can I Get For My Scrap Car In Michigan?

If you want to recycle your car for cash because it can't be driven, you have options. Skilled vehicle buyers in Michigan can responsibly recycle the components in your car and extract metals like steel, aluminum and platinum.

The value of your vehicle's parts depends on its size, its current location and nearby market values for metals. You can get anywhere from $100 to $1,000 for a scrap car depending on the details listed above. 

Market rates can change day to day based on national and even international trends. The most hassle-free way to learn what you can receive for your vehicle in Michigan is to get a quote from CarBrain!

Where Can I Get FREE Junk Car Removal In Michigan?

With us! CarBrain loves junk vehicles, and we'll buy yours and tow it for free! For getting rid of a scrap car in Michigan, all you need is a certified copy of your title for the car. We will come to you, so you don't have to worry about bringing your car anywhere.

We work with network of licensed and vetted junk car buyers that can come straight to you in 24 to 48 business hours. All you have to do is show up and get money!

Can I Sell You My Vehicle If There's A Lien On The Title?

Our company will only purchase cars with liens on them if our offer 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.com. This would allow you to maximize the value received from the sale of the vehicle.

Are There Any Fees For Using CarBrain?

You will not have to pay anything to have your car picked up. CarBrain includes FREE towing in all offers made to clients. We always come to you.

We haul away your car as-is, where-is in two business days. Do not worry about removal or transfer of ownership — we will cover it all.

If you're accumulating fees, let your customer service agent know ASAP. While we do not cover fees, we can help you schedule a fast pickup to minimize the fees you are charged.

Can I Sell You A Car With No Engine Or Transmission?

While we can buy a car with engine or transmission problems, we cannot buy cars with missing engines, missing tires or missing transmissions. We also don't make quotes on individual car components.

With CarBrain, you can get a bid for cars with all sorts of problems. We specialize in less-than-perfect cars! That includes: cars with motor problems, cars with transmission problems, cars with body or frame damage, non-running cars, older cars, wrecked cars, salvage cars, rebuilt cars and more.
