Massachusetts is one of several states that mandates the sale of junked cars to a licensed auto salvage dealer. Because this process can be complex and time consuming, we’ve compiled a list of essential steps and documentation required to sell your car to 114 Auto Salvage in Middleton Massachusetts.
By following the 7 Steps listed below, will make your junking experience super easy:
Step 1: Organize And Gather All Related Vehicle Documentation
The documents you need to to have in order to get the most money when you sell your car are the following:
-Proof of Insurance
Since we don’t put the vehicle back on the road, 114 Auto Salvage can sometimes just accept the registration. However, the vehicle has to be 15 years or older and registered in the state of Massachusetts so we can check if there are any liens (aka payments owed on the vehicle). If your vehicle is newer and from New Hampshire ,we will most likely require a title. Pickups without titles are picked up on a case to case basis, so please call us at 978-396-2448 to ask any 114 Auto Salvage buyers for more information.

Step 4: Decide Whether You Want To Get The Car Picked Up Or Drop It Off To Our Yard.
We are located at 297 N Main St Middleton Massachusetts 01940. The yard operates from 9am to 6pm Monday- Friday, and some Saturdays from 8am-12pm. We recommend that you call us beforehand to make sure someone will be at the office when you come with your vehicle so we hand you a bill of sale and hand you your cash in an envelope.
Step 5: Make Sure You Get A Bill Of Sale From One Of Our Buyers Or Drivers
The state of Massachusetts requires your car to have a bill of sale, so don’t sell it without one! Also, make sure the bill is free of grammatical errors. 114 Auto Salvage always provides you with a bill of sale when you sell your car to us. The driver will be more than happy to help fill it out.
Step 6: Transfer The Title
Like many salvage yards, we prefer to buy your car with a title, but can sometimes buy it without one since we do not put cars back on the road. If you sell us your car without a title, we can sometimes accept the registration as proof of ownership.
If you do have a title on hand, you can probably make a little more money when selling your car to 114 Auto Salvage. This is because having a clean title makes it easier to sell the parts off a car, especially if it’s 2007 or newer.
Step 7: Cancel Your Registration After Sell Your Car to 114 Auto Salvage
Please note that after selling your car, you cannot drive it on Massachusetts roads anymore. If you get caught driving with a canceled license plate or registration, this will lead to more issues like fines and impounding fees.
By selling your car to 114 Auto Salvage, you are already making the process of junking a car a whole lot easier. Call today for the best quote! 978-396-2448.
