    washington state laws suck

    ive been reading on this forum about scrapping cars... Well it aint all that easy in this state after the research i have done... If i wanted to scrap a car i would have to have a hulk haulers license... And i cant even remove parts... If i wanted to remove parts ie.. Cats trannies wiring harness etc... I would have to have a wreckers license.... And of course i would have to have the title.... Ive hauled in parts and that was ok but it seems its harder to haul in a shell of a car... And you cant cut it up unless you have a wrecers license... Does any other state do this???? When i google hulk hauler only washington state pops up..... ???? Illegal scrapping is a big problem in this state and they have made it hard for the legitimate scrappers... A person with a hulk haulers license can only sell to a wrecking yard or scrap yard... But here wrecking yards dont buy.. The laws here are screwy

    Sounds like the State found a source of revenue.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    -How far away from the border are you? You could take it across the border into Oregon or somewhere if you're close enough. Only problem is the possible legality.

    -Even if you did take anything off a car, who's to say you pulled it off? Maybe you bought it off a repair shop.

    -Is the law even enforced?

    -Is getting a liscense that big of a deal? Are there a million hoops to jump through to get one?

    A few things to consider
    There's nothing more fun and more effective than hitting something repeatedly with a sledgehammer

    That is messed up. My home state doesn't even issue titles for vehicles older than 15 years, so a law requiring titles for junking cars would be impossible.
    Where are you at? I'm looking at moving to Wenatchee area.
