Scraping a vehicle


  • Download and fill out a Virginia DMV VSA 40 form  (Section 1, 3, & 5) 
  • Bring the Title. If the Car is 10 years or older we can buy the car without a title, however there is a $25 charge assessed by the DMV.
  • If the car is being sold without a title, we are required to obtain a picture of the seller with a hand on the car. 
  • Trailers follow the same procedures


  • Remove the battery. We will buy it separately. 
  • Drain the fuel tank and remove all the fluids. If you are not able to do this, there is a $25 processing/disposal fee.

  • The inside of the car must be clean and free from debris or other scrap metal.
  • If you want to remove the tires, make sure you bring your own lug wrench. 
  • Hybrids and Electric Vehicles batteries must have the batteries removed, and seller must be able to show visible proof.
