    They'll only tow for repair, and the car has to display current registration, and is supposed to be insured as well. So likely, the answer is no.

    But a lot of recyclers will come pick up the car for free anyway.

    Kidney foundation will only pick up full cars, and most "will haul your car away for free" guys will only take full cars as well.

    this, and i dont think anyone will take scrap car shells away for free anymore as they arent profitable for recycling anymore (IICR), but i think its like 60-80$ to pay to get it picked up and recycled for a car shell

    I called the auto yard by my house and they arranged for a tow to come take it away. I think as long as you're nearby and the car has wheels they will take it away for free, since they get money for the scrap metal and what not.

    last i read, this was incorrect, the value of scrap steel greatly decreased and is worth next to nothing, IIRC

    i just had a car towed away for free with no engine in it, All it had was 4 wheels and the exhaust. I banged the shit outta it with a sledge, every body panel was dented and a spray painted shit all over it. The interior was half missing and the front windshield was busted in it plus the roof was dented in from me jumping on it.

    Some guy in the paper came and picked it up for free but said with out the engine and so on hed only get like 30$, dont remember the name of the place but just call around.
