Free junk car removal operators run into some problems when talking to potential junk cars sellers. One problem is that the junk car sellers do not know basic information about the vehicles that they are selling such as the year, make, and model of the vehicle and the mechanical problems.
Another problem that operators run into, other than car sellers not knowing the answers to simple questions, is people trying to junk vehicles that they do not have paper work for that are on their property. What these people do not understand is that you cannot get rid of a vehicle that you do not have paperwork for; it is not your vehicle. Operators, in this case, will advise the car seller that he does not have authorization to sell this vehicle because he does not have the paperwork. The paperwork shows ownership. So, no paper work means no ownership. Operators will inform the car seller that he has to contact a police department to retrieve a letter of abandonment. This letter will give him authorization to sell the vehicle.
Aside from potential car sellers who do not know basic information about their vehicles and who do not have the proper paperwork for their vehicles, free junk car removal operators also run into another problem: that of which is when the car seller fails to be truthful. For example, operators usually ask where the vehicle is located and if the vehicle has any flat tires. Sometimes the car seller will lie and say there are no flats. Answering these questions
truthfully is important because the operator has to know which type of truck to send to tow away the vehicle. If a vehicle has flat tires, a tow truck cannot be sent; a flatbed has to be sent. On the contrary, if a vehicle is parked in an underground garage, a flatbed cannot fit down there; a small tow truck has to be sent.
When operators do not answer questions truthfully, it causes problems. The “Free junk car removal” service winds up sending a tow truck driver to the location of the vehicle to only find out that that tow driver cannot tow away that vehicle. It costs people time and money. When junking a vehicle, be sure to answer all questions and be precise as to the vehicle condition and where it is located.
