If you have a junk car that you want to sell, need to drop off or get hauled away, we’re here to help!

At Modern Metals Recycling, we help residents throughout East Baton Rouge, Ascension, and Livingston Parishes sell and say “goodbye!” to their junk cars that either aren’t running or just aren’t worth the cost of the repairs they need.

We pay cash for junk cars & trucks that are no longer running & have the gas tanks removed. If the car is older than 10 years old, you do not need a title. Contact us today to find out more.

Get Top Dollar for Your Junk Car in East Baton Rouge, Ascension, and Livingston Parishes

You may think your junk car is not only useless and has no value. This isn’t true!

As auto salvagers and scrap metal recyclers, we want the metal in your salvage car that you can’t trade-in, sell to a new owner, or don’t want to pay to repair. In fact, your junk car is worth so much to us that we pay you for it!

Making Auto Salvage Easier Than Ever

If you're tired of having an old, broken-down car in your driveway or yard, bring your car to either our Prairieville, Denham Springs or New Orleans location during our business hours. We make the process easy.

We weigh your car, then hand you a check on the spot. It’s that easy!

What You Need to Bring if You're Selling Us
Your 10-Year Old (or Less) Junk Car

Louisiana law requires us to verify that the person who drops off and sells us a salvaged auto is the legal owner of the vehicle.

To do so, we’ll need you to bring a copy of your junk car’s Louisiana vehicle title, along with a Louisiana or government-issued photo ID, when you come to our Prairieville or Denham Springs location to prove you’re the owner of the car.

If you can’t find your car’s title or you’ve lost it, don’t worry.

You simply need to fill out Louisiana Vehicle Application Form DPSMV1799. Complete instructions can be found on this state webpage. Once the required form is completed and notarized, you can request your duplicate title either in person at your local OMV office or Express Lane. You can also mail in your completed and notarized form DPRSMV1799 and receive your duplicate vehicle title by mail if going to the OMV in person isn’t an option for you.

Once you have the vehicle’s title in hand, we’re ready to buy the car from you!

We Make Sure You’re Free from Your Junk Car for Good

After you bring us your car and its title and sell us it to us, we’ll walk you through the process of signing the title over to us. Trust us, we’ve done this thousands of times and will complete all of the state’s legal requirements properly and quickly so you can walk away with your check and never need to worry about your junk car ever again!

How Much Is My Junk Car Worth in Greater Baton Rouge?

In the Greater Baton Rouge area, junk cars can be worth a few hundred dollars or more, depending on the year, make, and model of the vehicle.

For the most part, the biggest factor that plays into the amount of money you’ll receive will be the weight of the vehicle.

As you can imagine, a junk Chevy Suburban, for example, is likely to be worth more than a Honda Civic.
