How much is my car worth in Oakland?

Today's average value for vehicles near Oakland, California is $303 with pickup included. If you have a big truck like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is at $378, but could be $257 for smaller and mid-size vehicles like a Hyundai Accent. Obviously, your vehicle's exact offer depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell your vehicle at auction, it's worth more than salvage values.
  • How large is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Junk offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with usable parts are sometimes worth more .

Will you pick up my car on the same day?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Oakland within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier handles all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by cash or business 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, many have moved to check for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid by business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

It has a manual transmission with a Mitsubishi motor even though it's a dodge. Honestly it looks like it might run if given some TLC. I'd like it gone ASAP."
