So, whether your car is having trouble passing smog, has mechanical issues, or if its been damaged in a car accident, give us a call.

I Can't Find The Title, Can You Still Pick Up My Car? 

For the most part we can pick up a car without a title as long as you are the registered owner of the car and can sign some paperwork. If you'd like to get a replacement title before pickup, this can often expedite the process. For information on how to go about this, please check in at one of the California Motor Vehicle Department Offices. Another option is to download form 227 at the CA DMV website and then pick up form 262 from the Anaheim DMV office. Sign these forms as the seller and then hand them to the tow driver at the time of pickup.
