Are you wondering how to sell your junk car quickly and easily? At The Clunker Junker, we pay cash for cars in Athens, AL and we make the process simple, fast, and awesome!
Do you have a junk car just sitting there, in your driveway or in your garage, doing nothing more than taking up space?
You might say that it’s valuable, and you have some ideas on how to get the most value out of it. If the car has been broken or damaged, perhaps you’re trying to save money to fix it up and put it back on the road. But you never seem to have the money or the time to find the parts and do the work.
Another alternative is to sell your junk car for parts. The challenge you’ll face here is finding the right buyers. Selling a car for parts and the scrap value of the metal is no easy task. You have to take the car apart, drain and safely dispose of fluids, separate and take inventory of the parts, and assess the quality of the parts. Then you still have to spend hours on the phone pitching your scrap parts to junk yard and auto recyclers or posting multiple classified ads, only to spend weeks getting the runaround and no firm estimate on the value of your parts and no interested buyers.
You could also end up spending money towing your car from one auto salvage yard in Athens to another only to find that you can’t get a fair price for both the metal and the parts.
You could try selling your junk car on Craigslist or eBay, which could turn you into a mini car dealership. You’ll find yourself waiting days or weeks for someone to respond to your ad. Then they’ll want to see it and test drive it, if you advertise that it is running. Then there’s price negotiations. A potential buyer might ask you to fix the car or reduce your price. Even if you do, they’ll want to think about it and get back to you.
Suddenly, you’ll realize that weeks and months have gone by and it’s still sitting there. In fact, you may have had a goal to sell that old car in a few days, and a year later it’s still sitting there.

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Athens within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own scheduling, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup window on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the requirements of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid via check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
"My radiator needs to be repaired as it's leaking. The windows are not working. There's a transmission issue in 3rd gear, it grinds. I just had the AC worked on ($400), the wiring worked on, ($800) and transmission looked at. ($900). The car was running before the radiator started to leak."
"The Forester is in excellent condition overall and well maintained, except one rod bearing has gotten stripped over time from a slow oil leak. It still starts, for now."
"The car's mileage is 143,000. I would need to have car towed because I do not want to spend the cash to get the car running again. I would rather just junk it."
"Theres a broken timing chain / bent valves. However I installed a brand new fuel pump (fuel tank inspected & cleaned), ECM, tune-up/plug wires and coil packs immediately prior to timing chain break. There is damage to the driver's front fender near headlight / front tire. The rear seat removed, but in the car with remaining parts in the trunk."
"I took the vehicle apart to rebuild it. The engine has been rebuilt, but the transmission has not, and I no longer have the time to work on it. All parts are accounted for, they are just not under the hood."
"The mileage is below 100,000. There's some front end damage, but nothing to the frame that I noticed. I'm getting rid of it because my tags are out of date and my apartment complex wants it out of the parking lot."
