When turning over a vehicle to an auto wrecking firm, the title form (or registration on vehicles manufactured before 1974) needs to be completed. The name of the auto wrecking firm should appear on the title as the new owner of the vehicle.
The auto wrecking firm is responsible for providing a receipt stating:
- The car's make and model
- Vehicle identification number
- Date of transaction
- The auto wrecker's name
The receipt is proof that the car was disposed of legally and should be saved.
