We read your mind- we know you probably cannot wait to avail of our services and are wondering how to approach us. So let's get to the point! The process to sell your junk car for cash today to us is pretty simple. We need to see just a few formalities before you and your car can go separate ways.

Just follow the steps below.

Junk car removal in New York

1. What is the make and model of your car

To ensure that we can assess the correct value of your car, we will require you to provide us with basic information such as the make, model, and year of your vehicle. This is for you to get the best price for your car. In addition, it will help us to determine what your car is worth so we can pitch an appropriate price. This will also save you the hassle of coming down to our office multiple times. Let's make life easy for both of us! As promised earlier, whatever car you have and no matter what condition it is in, if you want to sell your junk car, we will take care of it.

2. Produce title and registration

This is a crucial step. We need to make sure that you are a holder of the title for the car and can produce evidence proving so. This is state law, and without proper title and registration, it would not be legal for us to accept your car. We're not saying that titles can't be lost or anything, but according to state law, we are legally obliged to refuse any deals if there is no proper evidence of ownership. So even though we deal with old, rusty cars, the paperwork still requires being rock solid. So always keep a good record of your titles and registration.

3. Know what your car is worth

That's it. After providing us with the necessary information; wait for us to provide an unbelievable offer for a scrap of metal you thought had lost all its worth. Yes, it is as simple as that. After receiving your information, it only takes a moment to enter it into our system and calculate the value of your car, throwing in a few extra bucks on top, and your quotation is ready. There is no wait-up like other scrap car dealers. No follow-up time since we understand the urgency you have to get rid of your car. Now all that is left for you is waiting for the company to come and take your car away.

4. The day of pickup 

If you liked our offer, which we are sure would be the case, you'd be provided with the option to schedule a pick-up at your convenience with our New York Junkyard dealers. They will require you to provide them with some information regarding the pickup, such as who to contact when they get to the location, the actual location of the pickup, and when would be the best time for them to show up in the next 1-3 working days. Now, sit back and relax while our team reaches you at your doorstep and takes that car off your hand, for free!

5. Payments

Imagine seeing your car being towed away while you are daydreaming of what all you can do with the cash in your hand! Yes, you heard right. As soon as you hand over your car and our team has finished the paperwork to see everything is in order, we will pay you your car's worth in cash according to the pre-decided quote. And again, there are no extra hidden charges! The amount you will receive will be the exact amount you were promised during the quotation over the phone.

Auto wrecker services

At Penguin Auto Wrecking, we provide our clients in New York with top-notch auto wrecker services. So if you think your car is no longer giving you the same thrill as it used to and you are wondering what to do with this junk, call us up! We will take your car away from your doorstep and pay you there and then! What else could one ask for?

So, what is the difference between a traditional car scraping service and an auto wrecking service? A car scrapping service will take your car and destroy its parts, with its primary goal being getting rid of scrap metal. 


On the other hand, an auto wrecker is to break down your car and decide which parts are salvageable and reused. And you do not even need to worry about taking the reusable parts away; the auto wreckers will take the responsibility of selling those parts and making sure they are going to someone who needs them more. This way, you are not only getting the chance to earn but also help someone else out!

Also, in today's era of increasing climate change, such an arrangement is ideal for people looking to sell my junk car today for cash and wanting to do something good for the environment as well. Our job is to make sure that parts of the car that can be salvaged and recycled are done to produce as little waste as possible.

Auto salvage yards

At Penguin Auto Wrecking, you also get state-of-the-art salvage yard facilities. So if you have been looking to get your car broken apart and sell the parts, we've got you covered. No matter how useless you think your car is, we see the worth in the most seemingly worthless things and will get you the money you deserve!

Auto recycling has been a huge part of our business, and we make sure that every bit of the car that can be recycled is properly taken care of. Our auto salvage yards are working 24/7 to ensure safety for all. We make sure that no inoperable vehicle is on the road while every damaged car can be fixed. At this stage, we presume you may be wondering what the difference between scrap and a salvage yard is, and we get you. We mean, aren't there enough scrap yards in New York already?

There is a very basic yet significant difference between the two, and it directly affects you as a client. A scrap yard breaks apart a car to recycle the whole thing, while a salvage yard will take out any part that can be used and sell it. This means that the profit we earn by selling salvageable parts makes you earn a profit from it. Hence if you choose an auto salvaging service, you earn more than sending your car to a scrapyard. People working at our salvage yards have a good eye at picking all salvageable parts and give you the money for it! Your car is in good hands!

Auto salvage yards

Automobiles junkyard

We understand that some cars may be beyond salvage. What would happen then? Do we still accept those cars? Can you still earn money off of it? The answer to both questions is yes!

As we mentioned before, we are the best scrap car dealers in New York. We do not take this claim easily. We have set up state-of-the-art automobile junkyards all over New York to help you take care of cars that cannot be helped at all. If you have an old rusty car at home, you are sitting on a gold mine! Call us today to get your quote and have your car picked up from your doorstep. All the while getting paid for something that was lying around in your garage anyway.

The best part is that our towing service is that it is free. However, if your car is not salvageable, it may not be able to be moved with a tow truck. You are also doing well for the environment by getting salvageable parts recycled. So what are you waiting for, call Penguin Auto Wrecking now and get rid of your old car! You can also be confident in who you're dealing with, we strictly follow the auto recycler association guidelines for processing and handling vehicles responsibly.

Junk car prices in New York

Since we've grown old with the business, we have acquired some old man wisdom on this business, making us adequately experienced to find the best possible offer for your scrapped car.

Deciding what the car is worth is not as simple as it sounds, and we consider a multitude of things before giving you a quote you will not be able to refuse. We look at the make and model of the car, the condition it is in, and most importantly, the proof of ownership. We do not believe in sugar coating or lying to our customers about the value of their car- it serves no purpose. Our clients are very important to us, and we promise to provide them with the best deal in town!

So what things might we consider before buying your old car?

Junk car prices in New York

1. Make and model of the car

Figuring out the make and model of the car is an important step in evaluating your car's worth. But why is that important, you may ask? Some make and models are sought out by enthusiasts or collectors, or maybe the model is hard to come by, and spares from it go for quite a high sum. We, therefore, would not want you to be losing out on any possible profit that you could be making. This is why knowing the make and model puts us in the best position to provide the best offer to you.

2. Condition of the car

Before you try to get an offer for your damaged car, you need to understand the extent of damages it has suffered. Are the damages external or internal? Is the car operable or not? Can anything be salvaged from the car? This will help us determine if your car is worth a lot more than what you have previously thought and properly evaluate it. Hence putting you in a winning situation. Imagine losing out on cashing a vintage car spoiler just because you weren't aware that it was salvageable and had a huge demand. We would never mind putting in the extra effort in evaluating your car so that you don't miss out on anything.

3. Proof of ownership

This is an extremely important step since we do not want you to be selling someone else's car. It protects both you and the company from any legal battle in the future. However, holding the title is a way to show ownership; it is not the only way. Even though the title as proof of ownership is the easiest to acquire, we acknowledge unforeseen circumstances and would be happy to accept any legal document stating you are the owner as an alternative!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you looking for answers to your many questions? Are you looking to sell your junk car for cash today? We have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions for your convenience. If you cannot find the answer to your question, feel free to call us up, and our representative would love to answer any other questions you may have.

Who are we?

Penguin Auto Wrecking is a nationwide junk car removal service that is bringing its high-quality services to New York. With the widespread partnerships we have curated with many other big names in the junk business, we are set in a very strategic position to provide our clients with top-of-the-line junk removal services.

We promise to provide the best possible offers for your scrapped and damaged cars in New York. We are very passionate about our work and have over the years developed a very strong team that excels in customer service and giving you the best experience of separating from a beloved possession. 

How to get a quote?

It’s as simple as picking up the phone and calling us to ask! It’s that easy to get an offer for your scrapped car. The customer service representative will ask about the most basic information such as the make and model of the car, the place of residence, the condition of the car, and proof of car ownership. As soon as you can provide all the necessary information, it will only take our representative a few minutes to enter the information on their system and produce the perfect offer for your car—no need for follow-ups. If you are looking to sell your junk car for cash, we are your people!

What if I don’t like the offer?

We take our promise of the best offer in the market very seriously. We pride ourselves on how satisfied our customers are with our offers. But, if you listen to our offer and are still confused, we wouldn't mind! The customer is king. You are always welcome to explore other options to see how their quote compares to ours. If you can find a better offer, we would be sorry. But, if you cannot find a better offer, we would be more than happy to offer it if you are looking to sell your junk car for cash!

Is having a title necessary? 

It is preferred that while looking to sell your junk car, you provide some evidence of ownership. While we understand that looking to sell my car for cash today may be a challenge, especially for older models where misplacing titles is a human error to make, we consider such cars without a title in these special circumstances. 


However, we request our clients to provide other means to prove ownership, such as a court order stating you as the owner. We at Penguin Auto Wrecking make it easier for you to sell your junk car for cash today.

Can I sell a car with a title under someone else’s name or from another state? 

A title from another state is usually not an issue- we deal with people who are looking to sell their junk car but have title registration in another state.

If the title is from another state, it will not affect the deal. However, you should make sure that you have ownership of the car while selling your junk car, and no one else's name is written on the title. Otherwise, you won't be able to sell that car legally in some circumstances; however, it would be possible, such as in the case of a deceased titleholder. But even in this case, there has to be some proof that you were the beneficiary and hold the right to sell your junk car for cash.

Is an offer fixed?

Due to the nature of the market for junk cars, our offers are volatile and subject to changing circumstances before the offer has been accepted. However, once the offer has been accepted, no matter how long and tedious the process of selling your junk car for cash today is, our offer will remain the same, even if it means us taking on a loss. You will get the cash you were promised.

How long does the process usually take?

After the offer has been accepted, the process can take up to 1-3 working days. This depends on the schedule of the towing service. Don't worry; the company will inquire about the ideal time and day of their arrival at your place. We are always at your service!

Can I reschedule the pickup?

Of course! It is you who we are serving, and your convenience matters the most to us. If the pickup time is not suitable for us, let us know, and we would be happy to reschedule! We can provide you with the next available slot at your convenience. We understand you want to sell your junk car for cash today, and we are there to make that dream a reality.

Getting paid — about the payment

Now we're talking business. We know you want to sell your junk car today and are looking for instant cash. Well, your wish is our command. Penguin Auto Wrecking makes immediate payments to all its customers as soon as the deal is verified. We can pay in cheque or cash, whatever is more convenient for you.

However, if your payment is a large sum of money, it may be unsafe for our towing company to hold this much cash. If such a case arises, you would be paid in cheque. Our company takes full responsibility for the validity of the cheque and if the cheque is rendered invalid due to any unforeseen circumstances. You will be given the entire amount in cash if that is the case.

What is the tow fee?

Nil! That’s the best thing about our service. There are no hidden or additional costs. If you are looking to sell your junk car for cash today, we will be there at your doorstep! There is absolutely no cost associated with towing.

All you need to do is book a time with the towing company who will pick the car from your doorstep. Towing charges itself could be a couple of hundred dollars and may impact the amount you have left in hand. But we take it upon ourselves to make “sell your junk car” as seamless as possible.
