What you need at the time of sale.

Before we can buy your junk car in Hayward, CA you’ll need to take care of a couple of things:

  1. Get your car ready for sale and remove all your personal items.
  2. Have your keys and your title ready if it’s required. We buy cars with no title in Hayward, CA but cannot buy every car in every circumstance.
  3. Contact the California DMV and cancel your registration. You’ll probably want to cancel insurance as well.

On arrival, our Hayward car buyer will check out the car and makes sure it matches the actual description and then hand over either cash or check in the agreed upon amount. Abandoned cars cannot be legally purchased, and we cannot pay any impound fees.

We buy cars in Hayward, CA to save your sanity

Let’s talk about your other options for a moment. You’re probably thinking, “I bet I can get more cash for my car in Hayward, CA” by selling the car myself. We won’t lie, you might be right! But at what cost? Here are a few things you’ll be dealing with when trying to sell your car on your own:

  • No matter how detailed your ad is, people will be bothering you with the dumbest questions you can possibly think of. “How many miles are on it?”…197,000 just like the ad says. “Can I come take it for a test drive?”… No, the ad says it doesn’t run. You may soon lose your faith in humanity.

  • Even though you’re advertising a junk car for sale, people will nitpick every single minor dent, scratch, and paint chip to try and get you down on price. When we buy junk cars in Hayward, CA, we expect them to be and never hassle you over imperfections.

  • You’ll run into multiple no-shows and time wasters. “I’ll be there at 6:30pm!” they’ll say. As 9:00pm rolls around, its clear you’re never going to hear from them again. It’s too bad you just canceled that dinner date and ruined your whole night.

Maybe you think having a Hayward, CA junkyard or salvage yard to buy your car will be better? That’s what they’re in business for, right? We would probably get carpel tunnel trying to write about all the horror stories we have heard over the years. Here’s a common scam they like to pull: You’ll call them up, give them accurate details about your vehicle, and they’ll give you a quote over the phone. So you have your vehicle towed to their junkyard expecting to receive that amount. What do you do when they hand over a check for $100 less than they said? You’re not going to pay to have your car towed back home, you’ll probably just accept that you’ve been scammed and move on. Bummer!

When you get cash for cars in Hayward, CA from The Clunker Junker, you can be sure the amount you see on our website is the amount you’ll be paid. That is the end of the story! We have been building our positive reputation for years and are very proud that we’ve become known as one of the most honest car buyers in Hayward, CA.

Can we buy junk cars in Hayward, CA without a title?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Hayward, 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 registration to prove ownership. Also note that offers for cars with no title or pink slip may be significantly lower!

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Hayward, CA DMV as seen below. Most states require a small fee for replacement and turnaround time can be anywhere from instantly to a couple of weeks:

How long does the process take?

We can pick up most vehicles in Hayward within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer manages all their own pick up schedules, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup time on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the policy of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid by business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

It had an oil leak that went unnoticed until it was too late. It may have under 100k miles. It has LED mileage and I didn't want to start it up. Turning the accessory on did not light up the mileage. If it is over 100k miles, it isn't by too much."
