How long does the pickup take?

We can usually 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 scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup time on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policies of the buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. When you are paid by check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!

  • Sheila's 2006 Saturn Ion
    2006 Saturn Ion

    "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. "

  • Latresha's 1999 Dodge Durango
    1999 Dodge Durango

    "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. "

  • Tong's 1998 Acura Integra
    1998 Acura Integra

    "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. "

  • Amber's 1987 Chrysler LeBaron
    1987 Chrysler LeBaron

    "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. "

  • Kerry's 1998 Plymouth Neon
    1998 Plymouth Neon

    "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."

  • Austin's 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
    1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

    "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."
