Abandoned Vehicle Title Process
In each state there is a specific process for obtaining a title for an abandoned vehicle. The instructions and forms are listed below.
In most states the process begins by filing a notice of abandoned vehicle form, and by sending a notice to the last known title holder.
The documents and instructions are provided below to do this yourself. If you would like assistance in filling in the forms and sending the prior owner notice, you also have the option of using our services as well for a flat fee of $119.
In some states the mechanic’s lien process is only available to towing and storage companies or property owners. In some cases the notice is required to be sent within a certain time period.
As alternatives to the Abandoned Vehicle Title process, you can consider the Bonded Title or Bill of Sale Title process also.
