I'm sure your state has a release of liability that you would mail in with new owners name.
Junk yard may actually charge you to take the car, I would call first.
My brother had his car totaled in a wreck.He posted a ad on craigslist
with pictures. He posted it for $500 but got so many calls he told the people best offer, He ended up with $900 bucks .
of course you will explain in the ad car was flooded and sold as parts car only.
plus craigslist ads are free.

the wrecking yard isn't going to give you very much for it, but it is quick and easy. Yes, that's about it---they pick up the car, write you a check, and you give them title.
You can advertise it as a PARTS CAR, as is, where is and you might get a bit more for it.
No car dealer will want it, so forget about that.

Is the junk yard(or whoever the buyer turns out to be) supposed to give me any sort of receipt. Or is the check proof good enough. Should I ask for a cashier's check? I also have AAA. I don't suppose they would be willing to tow the car to the junk yard?
thanks for all the great replies so far, guys.

Junk yard will give you a receipt, If you sell it on craiglist you give them a bill of sale, and fill out a release of liability

#2973 of 2979 Finding good low-mileage lease values
Feb 26, 2013 (10:41 am)
I want to lease a wagon, minivan, or SUV, but I will only put about 5000 miles/year on it.
How can I find out which companies/models offer credits or higher residuals for such low mileage?
