Junk Car Recycling Questions and Answers

Planning on selling your junk vehicle? If so, you may wonder what to do with your license plates once the vehicle is sold.

The answer to this question depends on who you ask. In many states, it’s not uncommon for some owners to remove the license plates from their vehicles after they sell them. Doing this compels the new vehicle owner to register that vehicle in their name.

In other states, it’s also not uncommon for some vehicle owners to leave their plates. Still, by doing this, the owner of the sold vehicle has to stress the importance to the new owner of registering the vehicle in the new owner’s name immediately due to owner liability.

About Owner Liability

Owner liability is an important concept that every driver should understand, especially if they own their vehicle because, it doesn’t matter if money has exchanged hands between buyer and seller, as long as the vehicle remains in the name of the previous owner that owner remains liable for any accidents or injuries that vehicle was involved in. Besides applying to crime, owner liability also applies to any parking violations which are incurred by that vehicle or possible vehicle impound fees.

Tips on Transferring the Title 

Did you know that most states will use the title of a vehicle to track ownership? The vehicle’s title is directly connected to the VIN number that’s etched on every vehicle or its components. The title gives the Department of Motor Vehicles or law enforcement the ability to quickly access ownership records and track down the owner at a moments notice. Sadly, what many drivers don’t know is that transferring the title of the vehicle doesn’t always mean that one owner is transferring the plates over to another. If you’re planning on selling your vehicle within the coming months and are unsure about if you need to keep the plates on your vehicle or not, the easiest approach is to recommend to the buyer that he or she meet you at your local DMV so that you both can transfer the appropriate documents and or apply for a brand new title altogether. Doing this will ensure that both you and the buyer stay complaint with state regulations and eliminate the possible hassle of the buyer driving the vehicle before it’s fully registered in their name.
