Dh truck was totaled in the storm. The adjuster is coming for property and auto. We will probably need to junk the car and I have no idea how to do this.

There are people who will tow your truck away and even pay cash for it. You can also donate it. Your insurance company may have some suggestions.

When my car was totaled, it was towed to a salvage yard free of charge.

When my cars were totaled, the insurance company had them towed and disposed of.

We have had salvage companies take them. We've gotten about $100 usually. Years ago, we donated one to the fire company so they could practice rescuing trapped drivers with it.

When someone hit my DH and totaled his car the insurance company took care of it for us. We could have bought it back and fixed it but we chose not to.

My insurance company took my car when it was totaled. I'd be surprised if they let you keep it.
