Before you get rid of your old junk car, it is important to clean it out and remove all of your personal belongings from the vehicle. This includes things like registration (if you are junking your vehicle with the title), insurance cards,electronic toll transponders, and anything else that may have sentimental value to you. Additionally, be sure to remove any large trash or debris from the car so that it is easier for the salvage company to process.
