I recently had to junk a car, after MANY attempts to fix it, I just gave up, the motor blew up. I junked it at Oliphants. You have to have a title there. I had to re-apply for one at the clerks office.
Most junk yards require a title. If you don't have one, you can get one at the clerks office too.
I hope that helps.

You do not have to have a title at Crone;s or Tuttles.

You don't have to have a title at Scott's either. I junked one that had a title. I took off the license plate, took it and the title to the County Court Clerk Clerk handed them to the clerk and told them I had junked it. That way it was taken out of my name in case someone did decide to fix and drive it.

what if the person who is going to junk it doesnt even have thier name on the title? if they junk it and i have the title can they get in trouble because they didnt have my permission?

Probably. I would think if someone junked a car in MY name, they could get in trouble for that. Couldn't they??

I would think so. That would be theft of your property if your name is on the title as the owner.

Yeah you could get them for theft. My ex used to work at Tuttle's and I know he said you had to show proof and have your ID scanned for records if you sold a vehicle there. If the title is in your name or you hold a lein on the car/truck, it is still yours.

there is a way around it if you know how to put a storage lien or something of that matter on it and place an ad in a public paper for a certain amount of days...I can't remember honestly how it is done...

If a recycling establishment allows cars to be junked without the title (such as does Tuttle's), they should have a form that they fill out stating that the vehicle belongs to that individual, and the individual has to sign the form. Plus a copy of the individuals driver's license has to be obtained so that individual can be tracked down should there arise a question of their ownership of the vehicle. This form is EXACTLY how someone can get in trouble for junking a vehicle that does not belong to them.

This was more than 3 years ago. And, if you read my very first post about Oliphants, then you know that they require a title.

It depends on the age of the vehicle.

Well he prolly wants a title to a fixable car so he can fix it and make money. If its just junk only then he isnt going to care probably. Most places require titles if its less than 10 years old. Everything 10and older usually dont require one.

Do not give the junk yard the title!!!!!!!!!! Big mistake. You may be billed for taxes in a couple of years for the vesicle like I was. Someone several counties away had it on the road. Also I know of a case where a person with a wrecker was picking up stranded cars on the interstate and selling them for junk in Kentucky. They do not need a title. They do however have a camera on you at the junkyard. I make sure I junk my titles now.
