Sell my Car in New YorkNew York City is one of the busiest, most exciting cities in the world, but it’s also one of the most crowded. That means miles and miles of stop-and-go traffic that can turn your unreliable car situation into a complete nightmare. No one wants to deal with a midtown breakdown in rush hour traffic, so if you can’t trust your car to make it across the George Washington Bridge, you might want to get rid of it.

New York’s junk car buyers will happily take your car off your hands—but they rarely offer more than scrap metal value (currently at historic lows). And trying to find a private buyer for your less-than-perfect car can take weeks or even months. So why not use CarBrain’s online pricing tool to get an instant, no-obligation quote for your car? It takes just 90 seconds to find out what your car is really worth, and if you like our offer, we’ll come out to pick up your car for FREE and put the payment in your hand within 24-48 hours.

What Do I Need To Sell My Car In New York?

Selling your junk car in New York City is easy once you’ve got the paperwork straightened out. You’ll need the car keys, the title, and a Statement of Transaction (Form DTF-802), which is essentially a bill of sale. If you’re wondering how to sell a car without a title, it’s only possible for vehicles from model year 1972 or older, and you’ll need a Certificate/Affidavit of Sale or Transfer (Form MV-51).

Once your paperwork is ready, remember to clear your personal items out of the vehicle, pull off the license plates, and remove the registration sticker from the windshield.

How do I Transfer My Car Title and Registration in NY?

To transfer your car title and registration in New York, complete a bill of sale, obtain an odometer disclosure statement (if the vehicle is under 10 years old), and provide the buyer with a signed title certificate. Both parties must fill out the Transfer of Title form (DTF-802). The buyer submits these documents to the DMV within 10 days, pays the required transfer fees, and can choose to transfer existing plates. The seller cancels insurance on the sold vehicle, and the buyer may need to visit a DMV office for finalization. CarBrain, a nationwide car buying service, simplifies this process by handling paperwork and offering a convenient online platform for selling your car.

How Much Can I Get When I Sell My Car?

As you can imagine in the “city that never sleeps,” New York’s junkyards are usually packed with junk cars.

They’ll still haggle and pressure you to sell at a low price. CarBrain’s experts are uniquely equipped to value your less-than-perfect car, though, and make sure you get the price you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions - CarBrain

How Can I Get Cash For A Car To CarBrain?

Selling a car with a bad motor starts with getting a pain-free offer through our website. To get the most exact offer, make certain to include as many details and descriptions of the car, as possible. Photos and thorough information about any damage also would help.

How Much Does A Crashed Car Go For In New York, New York?

When we evaluate a car, we take various components into consideration. For example — two cars with equal years, makes and models can be evaluated differently depending on things like if the vehicles have a broken engine, or the location of the cars. Normally vehicles in the north are valued to be generally less due to local differences in environment, nearness to international markets, and such. Therefore, even two identical vehicles can receive different market values based on a variety of factors.

CarBrain.com is truly without competition because its offer process is highly extensive and focused on far more than just your vehicle's scrap metal value or the year, make and model. We truly go the extra mile to provide our customers with the best possible appraisal.

The Vehicle Title Is Not In My Name. What Can I Do?

If you currently lost your title, you can still sell your vehicle to us. However, you have to get another certified copy of the title. The way you can do this is by going to your state's DMV page: NY Department of Motor Vehicles. You will have to pay a small fee for a verified copy of your title. The next step is to upload a high resolution photo of your title to CarBrain.com — and you're all done!

What Documents Do I Need To Sell You My Vehicle?

The type of documentation required to get cash for a vehicle to CarBrain.com is fairly straightforward. During the offer process, we ask for the vehicle identification number. We might also ask for a photocopy or scan of the title. This is to confirm that the vehicle is being sold by the legal owner of the car. If everything matches, you can then remove any personal stuff from the vehicle and receive your payment! If you have additional considerations please check out this page. New York Titles.
