How much can I sell my junk car for in Alabama?
Regardless of whether your vehicle resembles a rusted piece of metal rather than a car or it’s only lightly used, we’re willing to pay you cash for the car upon collection. At the Clunker Junker we pride ourselves on paying our customers fairly, which is why we’re confident that you’ll be quote surprised at how much you might earn for your scrap vehicle.
Real junk cars
If your car is a piece of junk with absolutely no valuable parts, we’ll typically pay you between $50 and $225 for a vehicle in this condition. These cars are usually priced based on their physical weight because they have no valuable parts and will therefore be crushed and sold for their scrap metal. Even with no title we’ll buy your junk cars for cash under some circumstances (see below). Scrap metal prices fluctuate every day, so our offers are only valid for a short time.
Broken down vehicles
We also buy junk cars that might not be classified as junk cars, but they might be broken down and in need of minor repair rather than rusted out. In this case it’s common that some of the parts may have some value if they are re-sold, in which case we’ll be able to pay you more handsomely than for a rotted piece of junk.
Despite our name, we also buy cars that aren’t junk. If your vehicle is used and still taking you from A to B, we’re willing to pay you up to $10,000 for a used car in a working condition. Get an offer today through our homepage form, your car might be worth more than you think and we’ll still pick it up completely free of charge.

Frequently Asked Questions in Alabama
Can you buy my car without a title in Alabama?
It depends. We can sometimes purchase cars and trucks in Alabama without a title if they are older than 2004. You will also need to be the legal owner of the vehicle and be able to provide a valid registration or insurance card that matches your photo ID. Also note that this is ultimately up to our third party buyers and they always reserve the right to deny any vehicle for any reason, including documentation issues.
What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?
Alabama often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Alabama DOR.
Do I need to turn in my licence plates?
Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local county title and registration office.
What should I do about my auto insurance?
You will need to notify your auto insurance company that you have sold the vehicle so they can either cancel your policy if the vehicle was sold, or transfer/renew the policy on your new vehicle.
Is there anything else I need to do?
You may need to notify your local DPS that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.

"The vehicle is missing the radio and the speakers. It has damage on the front driver-side fender from an accident. It's missing both of the front blinkers. It still runs, but it has a massive oil leak. I need it gone so that I can transfer the tag over to my new vehicle."
"I'm junking the vehicle because it was a project, and now I'm moving. The vehicle is somewhat torn apart. I was replacing a lot of stuff and didn't get the chance to finish it up. If nothing else, the motor, transmission and drive train are in good condition. I just need it to be gone ASAP. "
"The vehicle's leather seats are ripped, there's minor cosmetic trim damage, and the radiator, engine and motor assembly are damaged. It's a one-family car, and it's been in no wrecks. It has a rebuilt transmission, harmonic balancer, strut work, brakes, spark plugs and more in the last five years as well as a new starter. It's just time to let it go."
"The motor is locked up, but everything else is good to go. It has a new battery in it. It has a pretty nice cattle grill guard. It only has some surface rust on the bed of the truck. All of the tires and the spare are in good condition. The body has a few scratches and dents here and there. It was a farm truck for most of its life. It has good suspension. It has a clean and clear title that's in my name. The reason I need to junk it is because I don't have the time or tools to do a motor swap on it. "
"There is mildew damage inside of the vehicle. The damage is on the driver seat, steering wheel and passenger seat. The side step panel on the passenger side is off. The reclining couch/bed in the rear needs a cable. There are some minor dents and dings. The interior siding/fabric is loose and partially detached. It's a nice blue color, though. There are Captains chairs in the front and middle, and then there's the couch in the rear."
"The vehicle did start and drive, but currently it does not. I think it's the battery, but I'm not sure. It's just sitting in the driveway. It does have a salvage title which I didn't find out until after I purchased it. The paperwork was a huge mess with the car when the previous owner sold it to us. That's why I'm advertising it as having no paperwork and as a junk car."
