IAA makes sure that any state taxes it owes are paid and that your name no longer appears on the title. This is important because the name that appears on a vehicle's title in some cases may be used by police, tax authorities, telemarketers, and lenders.
If you sell your car to a company other than IAA that does not properly transfer your title, and the car subsequently receives traffic tickets or parking tickets, you may be contacted by a collection agency for payment... perhaps years after you thought the car was no longer registered in your name.
You'll have peace of mind knowing IAA's 200+ title clerks have expertise processing millions of titles each year. Our title clerks have been cleared for direct electronic access to Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) computers in the majority of states that allow direct access to high-volume companies.
