Now that summer is over, boat owners are putting their assets in storage for the winter. But if your boat has sailed it’s last season, there is no sense in wasting your hard-earned money on storage fees for the next several months. Even if you keep your boat docked for the winter, you still do not want to pay docking or club fees if you are going to get rid of it next year.
So what is the best solution? You should sell your junked boat to a scrap metal recycling center and put that cash toward a new one next year! Continue below to learn how to get rid of a junk boat in Kentucky.
Your first step to selling a junk boat in Kentucky is to find a trusted junk car buying company near you. You might be thinking that a junk car buyer does not purchase boats, but they do! They accept anything that runs on a motor and contains metal. But be warned; there are hundreds of junk car buyers to choose from in Kentucky, and many of them do not practice good business ethics.
So be sure you do your research and find a company that has a good reputation and offers several client amenities. Here in Kentucky, the leading source for high payouts and customer support in the junk car buying business is GC’s Junk Cars of Louisville! So skip the hassle of researching companies, and start by calling 502-804-5605 to request a free quote!
Your next step is to accept our offer! Once you receive our offer, if you accept it and wish to move forward, we will schedule a time to haul away your junk boat with our own in-house tow truck, at no extra cost to you!
Next, locate the boat’s title and sign it over to our Louisville junk car buyers. If your title is lost or destroyed, you will need to apply for a duplicate boat title, which can be done in person at your local County Clerk’s office, or by mail. Next, visit the Kentucky DMV website to learn exactly what you need to do to complete the process. So long as you have all the proper documentation needed, the process should be fairly simple.
While waiting for the pickup, remove all of your personal belongings from inside the boat. Take it a step further and siphon the fuel out of the vehicle and store it in approved fuel containers for future use commodities that take fuel, like lawn mowers.
When our driver arrives, simply hand them the signed title (or other documentation) and receive CASH ON THE SPOT! Whether or not you need to be present for the pickup depends mostly on the payment arrangement made. We may be able to work out an alternative payment arrangement with you, such as a money wire or mailed check. You can also pick up the money at a later time at our office. If you cannot be present at the pickup, just be sure to leave the appropriate paper work inside the boat.
