Did you know that in 1982 oil was discovered near what is now Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles? In just a couple of decades Los Angeles was producing almost a quarter of the world’s oil! Things have changed since then, but one thing is still true: If you’re looking for cash for cars in Los Angeles, you’ll feel like you’ve just struck oil yourself when you sell your junk car to The Clunker Junker! That’s right, we buy junk cars in the City of Angels and pay top dollar. As a resident of Los Angeles, CA (aka “Angelenos”) you know that the glitz and glamor of Hollywood is merely a facade on the city. While the world knows Los Angeles for its movie stars and celebrities the truth is that most of the city is struggling to get by, just like anywhere else. When times are hard and you need some financial help, let The Clunker Junker pay you cash for your junk car in Los Angeles! Not only do we buy cars in L.A. but we also pick them up and offer free junk car removal as well! Intrigued? Read on.
Is your old junk car or clunker broken down and so far past the point of repair that even West Coast Customs wouldn’t be able to make it cool again? You might be tempted to drive it right off Santa Monica pier and into the Pacific Ocean, assuming you could even get it that far! But there’s a better way to get rid of your junk car in Los Angeles: sell it for some quick cash to The Clunker Junker! We make the process of selling junk cars in Los Angeles as easy as finding an aspiring screen writer in a Starbucks; okay, maybe it’s not that easy, but it’s close! Let us break down our Los Angeles cash for cars process for you. It’s really just three steps:
Ah yes, our most common question. “How much is my junk car worth in L.A?”. As you can probably imagine, this is a tough answer to give without exact details of your vehicle. A 2009 Mercedes-Benz is going to be worth a lot more than a 1993 Geo Metro. But in general we break down junk cars into three groups when we evaluate how much they are worth:
So why should you choose to get cash for your junk car in L.A. from The Clunker Junker? We can think of a few reasons. First, we pay top dollar for junk cars in Los Angeles. We know that the most important thing to you is getting the most money for your car, so we make sure our offers are as competitive as possible. When you sell your used car to us, we don’t want you to feel like you just got pick pocketed by a thief down at Venice Beach! The best part is that if your car is not ready to be recycled and crushed, we have the ability to resell your vehicle at auction which means we can pay a TON more for it than a local Los Angeles junk yard or salvage yard.
We know you also have the option of selling your junk car on the Los Angeles classifieds, but just thinking about that gives us a migraine. Who wants to deal with a constant barrage of phone calls, text messages, or emails from potential junk car buyers on Craigslist who will probably just low ball you and not show up when they say they will? Of course, that’s just the best case scenario. Worst case they want to try and murder you, and no one wants to be murdered over a junk car. When we buy cars for cash in Los Angeles, you can rest assured our local junk car buyers are all background checked and vetted as legitimate businesses. We make it safe and easy to sell your junk car in Los Angeles.
For one, you’ll need your junk car, that one is obvious. Additionally you’ll want to have your keys and title (or pink slip) available and ready to go at the time of pickup. In some cases we can pay cash for junk cars with no title in Los Angeles, but we can never guarantee this as it depends on a few different things. Once our L.A. junk car buyer hands over payment, you’ll want to make sure you file a Notice of Transfer and Release of Liability with the state. This lets the DMV know you sold the vehicle and that you are no longer responsible for it. We take care of the title transfer and fees, so you don’t have to worry about any of that.
When you finally have a minute to reflect on your experience with The Clunker Junker, we’re sure you’ll feel like you scored more than Kobe ever did with the L.A. Lakers. You’ll feel like such a star, you might as well leave your hand prints on the walk of fame! So what are you waiting for? If you need a fast junk car buyer in Los Angeles, reach out to The Clunker Junker today!

Today's average offer for vehicles in Los Angeles, California is $278 with pickup included. If you have a full size pickup like a Chevy Silverado or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is a bit more at $347, but may only be $236 for small and mid-size sedans like a Toyota Camry. Of course, your vehicle's real offer depends on a lot of factors:
We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Los Angeles, 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. 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 Los Angeles, 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:
We can usually pick up most vehicles in Los Angeles within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier manages all their own schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time 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 makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid via business check, remember 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!
"Will start with a jump or a new battery. Windows don't stay up without using a wedge or duck tape. Front headlight is duck taped. Needs blower for heater."
"It's missing the tailgate and the truck was used as a farm truck so its a little beat up. I have pictures if needed. It's not in terrible condition, but not the greatest. I bought as a fixer upper, but ran out of time. The vinyl seat is torn on driver's side. Do have a replacement rear bumper and seat that I never got installed too. "
"My car is a 1996 Saturn. It's my first car, I've had it since 2009, so I'm not sure where the title is. The engine makes a loud noise but I'm not sure how much of that is due to old age. The front bumper has a pretty decent crack across it and the car feels like it shakes when I drive it. I drove it around my trailer park briefly but, other than that, I haven't driven it in about three months. I want to junk it to free up space."
"It hasn't been started in four years. It has just been sitting in the yard. I'd like to get a nice cash offer for it. "
"The vehicle needs a water pump which I can't afford. It has brand new (one week old) thermometer and radiator. The middle seat is gone and it does not start cause it needs a working battery. Battery in it is now dead."
"I have had problems with the alternator and the electrical system. I have been driving it for five years, but I have decided to buy another used car instead of paying for more repairs on this Mazda. "
