Step 2, Prepare your vehicle ownership

Locate your vehicle ownership document. You need the ‘vehicle portion’ that exists on the left part of the vehicle ownership document. At the back of the ownership document, you’ll need to put your signature and the name of the buyer later. Plus you need this information for getting a quote also.

If you are planning to scrap your car in Ontario, there are a few things that you need to do to make the process as smooth as possible.

Vehicle Portion of the Ownership

The first thing that you will need to do is get your hands on the vehicle portion of the ownership document. This document is essential for transferring the car’s ownership from you to the scrapyard. On the back of the ownership, you will find the vehicle transfer section. In this section, you will need to fill out the name of the new owner (the scrapyard), and their address, indicate the sale date, and finally – sign the document. You must have this document filled out correctly to avoid any issues down the road.

Used Vehicle Bill of Sale in Ontario

In addition to the ownership document, you will also need to fill out a Used Vehicle Bill of Sale. This document is important as it shows that the sale of the vehicle was made legally. The Used Vehicle Bill of Sale must contain all vehicle details including VIN, Production Year, Vehicle Make, Vehicle Model, and Colour. Additionally, both the seller and buyer information should be on this document.

With these two documents, you will have everything that you need to scrap your car in Ontario. Make sure to follow the steps outlined above and you will be able to get rid of your old car without any issues.
