Your old clunker may be collecting more than just dust. By now it’s probably starting to rust and may not even be able to start and drive anymore. At this point it’s just an eye soar and is taking up precious space in your driveway or garage. Your neighbors start giving you dirty looks because they’re sick of looking at your junk car rotting away in your otherwise nice neighborhood. It’s time to sell your junk car in Tuscaloosa, AL and The Clunker Junker wants to help!
If you have a junk car, the first thing that probably comes to mind when you need to get rid of it is to call up a local Tuscaloosa junkyard. This makes sense, but here’s the dirty truth: A lot of those junk yards are run by pretty sleazy characters. They’re trying to make a quick buck at your expense and have some tricks up their sleeves. First, they’ll offer you cash for your junk car over the phone and when the driver shows up, they’ll try and pay you less than you agreed to. This is called a “bait and switch” and is extremely common. The other downside is that salvage yards can really only pay what the vehicle is worth in parts and raw materials. In some cases, The Clunker Junker can beat those prices by up to 10 times because rather than crush and recycle your junk car, sometimes we can re-sell them at auction for much higher prices.
You might also search for a junk car buyer in Tuscaloosa, AL on classifieds websites. This comes with a whole new set of problems. We’ve all tried to sell something online, and we all know how unreliable private buyers can be. Someone will show interest in your junk car and will all of a sudden stop responding to you for no good reason. Maybe you get so far as to schedule an appointment with someone to buy your junk car, and they never show up. When we pay cash for junk cars in Tuscaloosa, AL you can be sure our local junk car buyers will show up on time and maintain communication with you throughout the process.
So how does all this work? We’re glad you asked! We pride ourselves in providing a really simple service. In general, it can be broken down into three parts:
Enter your junk car details. To kick off the process we will need to let us know what kind of junk car you want to sell and where in Tuscaloosa it’s located. We’ll also need to know what condition it’s in and whether you have the title for the vehicle. If you are trying to sell your junk car with no title, let us know. While we can’t guarantee we can buy every junk car with no title, we often can.
Receive your instant offer. In most cases you’ll receive an instant offer for your junk car right on our website. Others will “call you back” if you’re lucky. We’ve invested in creating a software system that can instantly evaluate the value of your junk car based on the information you provide and various market forces like the price of scrap metal, parts inventory, and recent auto auction sales.
Get paid cash on the spot. If you accept our offer we’ll send one of our awesome Tuscaloosa, AL junk car buyers your way. They’ll quickly inspect the vehicle to make sure your description was accurate and exchange cash for your junk car right at the time of pickup.

"The vehicle has 161,200 miles. I replaced the timing belt in July and the brake pads and three tires in August of 2014, so there are some relatively new parts. Unfortunately, I am junking it because it developed a motor issue in September, a month after passing inspection, and the repair costs more than the car is worth (it is still running but performing noticeably worse). I have the registration but not the title because it is registered in another state where the title is not required for cars older than 2000."
"Rack and pinion is out, head is cracked, right front fender and right headlight damaged, moon roof leather seats, custom chrome rims, all parts and accessories are in working order."
"I'm trying to junk this car because I need extra cash. I was trying to sell all the parts off of it but don't have anyone to take the parts off me, so I'm looking for the best cash offer for it. It's a 2001 Toyota Avalon, it is completely totaled, the rear end is completely gone, the back window is gone, and the passenger rear door is jammed because of the damage."
"~185K miles. Engine is partially removed but didn't have time to complete the repairs. All parts are present, however. Car has been sitting for ~five years, so interior is a bit musty. Two extra passenger side doors also inside from previous replacement (front and back)."
"Junking it because it had over 150k miles and starting to have some maintenance issues. The cost of getting it repaired was more than I'd like. It has a brand new windshield and two new tires. There is one flat tire, front passenger, but I have the spare donut tire in the trunk. "
"The vehicle needs minor work. A new alternator but otherwise works well. It has 202,089 miles on it. I have a disabled child with a service dog along with two other children, so I'm needing a bigger vehicle."
