When we say we buy junk cars in Costa Mesa, CA we mean it. Whether your ar is wrecked, broken, or is working but you just need to get rid of it, we will pay you cash for your car. The best part is that we’ve really simplified the process to make your life easier. Here’s how it works:
Share the details. First, you’ll need to tell us a few details about your vehicle. Don’t worry, it’s nothing too personal. Just basics like what kind of vehicle you’re trying to sell, hold old it is, and whether it starts and drives or has any major damage. We buy junk cars, so we don’t expect showroom quality, but we’ll need to know the condition to get an accurate offer.
Get your cash offer. Next, we’ll make you an instant offer. That’s right, no one will need to call or email you back hours or days later. Your car’s value depends on several factors. Offers are based on current market conditions that include thing like demand, comparisons to recent sales, auction prices, the distance to the buyer’s location, and the price of scrap metal. Keep in mind the cost of towing is included, even if it exceeds the value of your vehicle.
Fill your bank account. If you accept our offer our junk car buyers in Costa Mesa, CA will reach out to you to arrange a time for the transaction to take place. Buyers set their schedules independently, but in most cases, pickup is within a few days. Don’t worry. When our junk car removal team arrives, give them the keys and the title, if required, and collect your check on the spot.
Maybe — after you’ve racked up hours waiting for no-shows and dealing with strangers and tire kickers who never had cash to offer to begin with. Car buyers on Autotrader, OfferUp, or other marketplaces have thousands of cars to look at and if time is money, then you might waste yours waiting for a buyer that doesn’t want a junk car. At the Clunker Junker, we only have eyes for one car at a time — yours. No one pays more cash for junk cars in Costa Mesa, CA

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Costa Mesa, CA but we cannot guarantee it in all cases. It may depend on a number of different factors, such as the age of the vehicle and the exact location. Ultimately it is up to our local junk car buyers. If we can pay cash for your junk car without your pink slip you will need to have a photo ID matching a valid regsitration to prove ownership.

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Costa Mesa within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own pick up schedules, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup time on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the requirements of the local buyer who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid via check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"Driver's side headlight is somewhat crooked. Put in by a friend that did not know what they were doing. Minor body damage. Car runs, never has trouble starting, though it does need work. It makes a jet noise. It likely needs fuel line replaced. Military family and moving soon due to husband deploying, so second car is no longer needed. "
"I'm scared to drive the car. It slides in the rain, it needs new tires, and other work. The transmission is slipping. I had a friend renting it from me but he got his own car, so now it's just sitting. I'm not sure if it will pass inspection and I haven't really tried because I have another car but I don't want them to put an orange sticker on it. "
"Tire is inflated but not to the full extent, just enough for the vehicle to keep moving. Also, there is no audio deck. The battery is brand new and used only once. "
"Just has a firing problem, battery isn't staying charged. Don't have cash to do any work and I need the cash more. I may be wrong on the trim, the title is at home. It is a 1987 Chrysler LeBaron 4 door sedan four liter. New brakes and new wipers. "
"It doesn't run right now. I was told it needed a serpentine belt but my roommate replaced that and it still isn't running. I'm not sure what's wrong with it right now but it's probably an easy fix. This car is really easy to work on and cheap to find parts for. It's been sitting for almost a year now, so it doesn't look too good."
"Motor and trans are perfect. Vehicle has the usual body rust. Interior is in good shape. Reason for junking is that I'm joining the military and won't be needing a vehicle."
