Many people wonder if it’s possible to sell a junk car without a title in Massachusetts. The truth is the answer varies from company to company, but it is not illegal to sell without a title as long as the car does not go back on the road (aka no private party sales) and the last registered owner is present at the time of sale with a valid picture identification.
Here at 114 Auto Salvage, we’re experts in all things related to junk cars – including how to sell them without a title. We’ll walk you through the process step-by-step so you can get the most money for your car without a title.

Have Other Paperwork Ready
If you do not have a title for your car, you will need to have other forms of documentation of ownership at the time of sale. The next best documentation to have, in order to avoid NOT being able to sell your vehicle, is a valid or expired registration. The registration must be in the last registered owner’s name and you must be prepared to hand over the original registration and present a valid picture identification at the time of sale.
If you do not have a registration or a title, you will need to present a bill of sale or transfer of ownership documentations and a valid picture identification.
If you have no documentation for a vehicle or are unsure if you have sufficient documentation to sell your vehicle for salvage, call 114 Auto Salvage and speak to a buyer directly who can help you make the determination as to whether or not you can sell your vehicle for salvage.
Bring Your ID
When you sell your junk car to 114 Auto Salvage, we’ll need to see your valid driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID. This is for our records so we can be sure that you are the legal owner of the vehicle.
At 114 Auto Salvage we understand every situation is different. So,If you don’t have a valid picture identification please explain your specific situation to a buyer. We still may be able to help you out and help you sell your car without a title.

Get a Bill Of Sale
When the 114 Auto Salvage driver arrives at your location, he will fill out a bill of sale for you. A bill of sale is an important legal document that shows that you have sold your car to us.
It’s important to keep this document for your records. You may need this documentation in the future for proof of sale/salvage. Some cities and towns will require you to produce documentation of sale for excise tax abatement. Additionally, some insurance companies in Massachusetts require proof of sale/proof of salvage in order for you to remove the insurance from that car and cancel your registration with the RMV.
The bill of sale, or purchase agreement, will have your personal information, your vehicle information, including the vehicle identification number, transaction documentation for the sale and 114 Auto Salvage company information and phone number on it. Feel free to contact us after the sale if you require assistance with verification of salvage for your vehicle.
Double Check To Make Sure You Did Not Leave Any Belongings In The Car
Before the driver arrives, it’s always a good idea to do a quick check of the car to make sure you didn’t leave any personal belongings in it. It’s also a good time to remove any aftermarket stereo systems or GPS units that you may have installed.
Also, don’t forget to take off your license plates, or ask our 114 Auto Salvage tow truck driver to take them off for you.
