The current law states a fine has to be paid if you abandon your car on a public highway, so deregistration is an obligation.
In Bajavehiculos.com we collect your car at no cost at all to you to take it to the Authorized Treatment Facility (C.A.T) where the necessary paperwork will be handled in Tráfico (Traffic dept.) to provide you with the Certificate Of Destruction which is necessary to deregister the car.
When the requiered documents have been transferred to the C.A.T offices the data communication deregistering of the vehicle with the D.G.T (Traffic dept.) will be processed.
