Benjamin’s Junk Cars gladly accepts all motorized vehicles, regardless of age, make, model, or condition. We buy junk cars, trucks, delivery trucks, SUV’s, vans, RV’s, semi’s, scooters, personal watercrafts, forklifts, construction equipment, golf carts, and anything else that runs on fuel. Whether old, totaled, rusted, or barely there, we will pay you cash on the spot for your junk vehicle!
Although it is not necessary to have a car title when selling a junk car, it is helpful since a vehicle with a title is worth more because of the potential to resell. If you have questions about your title, please reference the Bureau of Motor Vehicles Titles webpage.
If your car title is lost, stolen, destroyed, or faulty, you can apply for a duplicate at your local BMV branch. Here is what the Indiana DMV says about it:
“A person who owns a vehicle that has a certificate of title that is faulty, lost, or destroyed, or who is the possessor of an abandoned vehicle may apply to the BMV for authority to sell, give away, or dispose of the vehicle for scrap metal without applying for a certificate of title. An approved Certificate of Authority – Disposal of a Motor Vehicle – State Form 55018 must be provided to the automotive salvage recycler, or other appropriate facility when disposing of the vehicle.”

Benjamin’s Junk Cars can usually provide same-day business! If we cannot do business the same day, we provide next-day service, which means you will never have to wait longer than 48 hours for your transaction to take place!
The value of your junk car depends on various factors, mostly the quantity of scrapable metal within the vehicle. Additional factors that greatly how much cash you will walk away with include the current market value for steel and other metals, the quality and condition of metal in your vehicle, and more. Here at Benjamin’s Junk Cars, we use a combination of techniques to ensure a more precise evaluation. We combine our innovative technologies, like XRF analyzers and electronic platform weight scales, and a mathematic formula that calculates current metal values with the contents of a junk car, to develop a full and fair offer.
Whether or not you need to be present when our tow truck arrives to collect your junk car depends on your payment arrangement preference. Our general business practice is to pay cash in hand, which of course, would require you to be present. However, if you cannot be present at the time of pickup, we can easily make an alternative payment arrangement, such as online transfers or mailed checks. Just be sure to leave all necessary documents inside the car before we come.
Benjamin’s Junk Cars cannot collect an abandoned vehicle unless you have an approved Certificate of Authority – Disposal of a Motor Vehicle form. However, if you need more information on abandoned vehicles, you may get in touch with the local BMV customer contact center at 888-692-6841, anytime.
