What is the Difference between a Salt Water Flooded Cars and a Freshwater Flooded Cars?
What happens when car floods depend on if it is salt water or fresh water. The difference between a salt water flooded car, and a clean water flooded car is a lot. I wanted to take a minute to mention the differences between freshwater damage versus salt water damage to a vehicle. The main thing that a saltwater flooded cars do is rust out the car immediately. Saltwater flooded cars look like acid is eating them. Within days you can look behind the rubber on the door, and you will see rust starting to form. This is the salt starting to eat away at the metal of your car body.
Saltwater damages your electrical connections in your vehicle beyond repair. Within just a few days the electronic motors are trash, corroded beyond repair or use. It’s all most like taking your car and dropping it into a vat of acid and quickly pulling it out.
Freshwater flooded cars damage is bad but nowhere near the same as salt water. With fresh water, you can drain all the water out of your vehicle’s fluids, replace all the filters, and more than likely your vehicle will start and you will be able to drive it.
I don’t know of any junkyards that will purchase known saltwater flooded cars. The damage is just way too severe. Nothing is sold to the general public. The parts are either to corroded, or the parts just rust apart.
Salt Water Flooded Cars, Fresh Water Flooded Cars, Who Pays Cash for them
We tow and dispose of all saltwater cars free of charge. We do purchase these vehicles for salvage metal. None of the parts will ever be used or resold. If you need a quote on a salt water flooded cars or fresh water flooded cars, please Junk Car Buyer at 713-592-2576

Renters Left a Car on my Property How do I get a Certificate of Authority To Dispose of the Vehicle.
I get a lot of calls from homeowners with an old junk car that was left on their property from a tenant. I always advise the property owners the same thing. You have to do a certificate of authority also known as a COA. These are very easy to do and allow you to dispose legally of a vehicle, which is abandoned on your property. Once a COA is done the vehicle can never be put back on the road it is marked as salvage. This is a legal way of obtaining the authority to dispose of the vehicle. Once your COA comes in from the state, we can accept this in place of a title.
I have heard that a few people have placed a small claim civil suit on the former residents that abandoned a vehicle on their property, and the civil judge has issued or judged that the owner of the property has rights to this vehicle, but I have never experienced this.
Can I remove these without you going through any of this? Yes, but we will have to remove the vehicle and place it on a state approved storage lot. If I do this, I cannot pay anything for the vehicle. The storage lot directly pays my company for a tow. We are not able to retain the vehicle once it is placed in storage. By state law, it must be auctioned off.
If you need any help, then please feel free to give us a call at 713-592-2576

More from the State of Texas on Certificate of Authority. There is a Certificate of Authority form located here.

Beware of Junk Car Buyer Scams
Recently I have had a few complaints on a couple of companies that operate online and are purchasing cars in the Houston Area; these are online junk car buyer scam sites and businesses. We have had more than a few of our local customers, contact us. Normally we hear a few complaints about other junk car buyers, but we have listened to a lot more, than usual, about this scam going around.
How does the Junk Car Buyer Scams work?
Here is what’s going on, a person wanting to sell their car uses a search engine to find a junk car buyer. They then contact one of the results in the search engine. Searching terms like “Houston Junk Car Buyers” or similar terms. The company gives them an estimate on what they are willing to pay for the vehicle. (Usually more than what any local salvage company is willing or able to pay). If the person accepts the offer, the buyer then sends you an envelope containing a few pieces of paperwork for you to sign and return.
This is all fine, but the problem with this is that you have to return the title to your vehicle with the paperwork. The paperwork that you sign is paperwork that you are giving up all rights to your vehicle.
The companies tell you not to worry “We are sending a wrecker to pick up your car.” The thing is the wrecker does not have the payment for the vehicle or a way to pay you. The company says that they are going to send you a payment for the car in the mail. Since you sent them the paperwork, voluntarily this becomes a civil matter, not a criminal. Because the only way to get your money is to sue the company in court. Most of the time it is almost imposable to find out the legal owner or company. What’s odd is they will not send a wrecker until they receive your paperwork, then why can’t the wrecker at least bring the check? They are advertising junk car, buyer, cash!
I will not name any of the companies’ names due to legal reasons. My legal team says that it is not allowed.

Keep in mind we at Houston Junk Car Buyers will pay you on the spot at the time that we pick up your vehicle. We are your local junk car buyers! Top dollar for junk cars!

National Junk Car Buyer Scams
I want to touch base on a new trend in the junk car industry, National Junk Car Buyer Scams. These are companies that are located in another state and purchasing junk or wrecked vehicles in all states. This is done by contracting local towing companies to purchase the leads that these businesses generate. These leads can be sold to your local towing company anywhere from $25-250.00 a lead. This is a huge selling junk cars scam that everybody should be aware of.
There are several problems with this model. The biggest problem is that these national junk car buyers don’t care who they sell the leads to, they may even sell them to several companies. We get calls from these businesses all the time after talking to several of them I have discovered that they do not want a copy of my licenses or anything. All they are after is a credit card so they can get paid for the leads.
Ultimately they could be contracting to a criminal. These companies just don’t care. All they are after is the money per lead they make. This is a very dangerous situation. It is not right to put you or your family at risk.
Are These Junk Car Buyers Licensed
These national junk car buyers are not licensed in the states to purchase and recycle junk cars. For example, in order to have a license in Texas, you must be located in Texas and have a principle office here. How are these companies going to notify the state that the junk car or truck is no longer in your possession? This is how you are released from liability. This protects you from assuming responsibility once your vehicle is sold. These national companies sell these leads to anybody that wants the leads. Some of these people that purchase these leads are not licensed and fix the vehicles up. They resell the vehicle without the title getting transferred. What happens when one of these vehicles runs a red light, tool booth or gets into an accident? You got it; you are held responsible because the vehicle is still in your name.
Another downfall of these junk car buyers companies is that by them selling these leads, they are taking money from you. Junk car buyers pay for these leads this means that they have to pay you less for your vehicle. So you are losing the cost of the leads from your selling price. For example:
You are asking $500.00.
The lead cost the junk car buyers $150.00.
This means that your offer would be $350.00.
You are losing $150.00, and the National Junk Car Buyer is gaining your money. This is money that you don’t have to lose. You can earn these funds by contacting a local junk car buyer and selling your vehicle to them.
I am going to tell you ways to recognize if a company is national or local. The first and best way are to look at their website. If it states that they purchase vehicles in several states. Then they are a national company. Another great way is to look at their phone number. If a junk car buyer has a toll free number then more than likely, they are a national junk car buyer. A local company does not need a toll-free number because it would not be long distance for you to call them.

Junk Car Buyer Scams Happen Everyday!
I wanted to make a quick post about the most recent scam going around in the junk car industry. As I learn about these things I try to post them.
Recently I have been getting a lot of reports of two things the first, is people are calling other salvage car buying companies and getting very high quotes for their vehicle only to find out that the quote is not accurate.
Here is How the Junk Car Buyer Scams Work
You call the company to get a quote; the company is located anywhere. They then send you an envelope and request you to send them the title to your vehicle. After they receive the title, they have a towing company pick up your junk or old car. They then do a condition report on your vehicle and go down on the price that they quoted you. If you don’t like their new quote, then they expect you to have your vehicle towed back along with paying the original tow bill from the first tow.
I can’t believe that this has been going on without any criminal charges being brought against these companies. This is wrong to do, and it is having a horrible impact on the junk industry. We at Houston Junk Car Buyer will never participate nor be any part of this practice. In our opinion this is fraud!
I get calls all the time asking us if we offer these vouchers, no we don’t. We do not practice this fraud nor will we ever. Houston Junk Car Buyer has been in business for many years and is family owned and operated. Our motto is to treat others the way we would want to be treated!!
If you would like a quote on your old junk car or truck, please feel free to give us a call at 713-592-2576. We will provide you with a quote that we will stand by!! If you have any questions or comments, you are more than welcome to give us a call, even if we don’t buy your vehicle we will still answer your questions.
