We buy junk cars in Palmdale, so say goodbye to auctions and classifies.

We buy cars in Palmdale and dealing with us is the easy way to go because we seamlessly pay cash for cars without all the hassle. But you still may be tempted to try to make more money by selling to an individual. As you’ll quickly learn, selling your used or to private buyers is often way more work than it’s worth.

You will have to advertise and create ads and listings on several sites, answer emails and phone calls, arrange to show your vehicle to people who probably won’t show up anyway, watch strangers drive off on a test drive with your vehicle as you hope they return it. And you probably do not feel comfortable inviting strangers over to your home or place of work. This will go on for several weeks unless/until your asking price is low enough to attract a buyer. Our Palmdale junk car buyers are all fully vetted and background checked, so you never have to fear being scammed or harmed.

If you sell your vehicle to an individual, you may have to deal with DMV paperwork, and what if you or the buyer signs the title incorrectly? We’ve been doing title work in California and can help you through nearly any title situation. If you do not disclose your vehicle’s mechanical problems in your advertisements or to people who respond to your advertisements and your lemon breaks down on the buyer immediately after the sale, you may be slapped with legal action. There go your profits.

Salvage yards and junkyards often present their own set of problems. They are not interested in paying a respectable amount of cash for your car or offering free car removal in Palmdale, CA, so they may not pay you the amount of money they promised you, or they’ll show up without the check. They may have fly-by-night haulers who charge you to tow the vehicle away.

You’ve got a vehicle that you need to get rid of, but most of the options to sell it are riddled with problems. Let The Clunker Junker help. We buy junk cars and trucks and do it in an ethical manner. So what are you waiting for? We are paying cash for cars right now!

Can we pay cash for junk cars in Palmdale, CA without a title?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Palmdale, 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 Palmdale, 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:

Can you pick up my vehicle on the same day?

We can often pick up most vehicles in Palmdale within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer manages all their own pick up schedules, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the requirements of the local buyer who places an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid by check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!

    2001 Ford Expedition

    "The SUV has been sitting for a long time so the battery is completely gone. It started and drove up until the day it was parked. That's why I listed that it'll start but isn't drivable currently. "

  • Dee's 1992 Ford Taurus
    1992 Ford Taurus

    "The vehicle was given to me by deceased owner, uncle. I cannot find original title, but have an up to date registration. I have applied for a duplicate title. The car needs to be jumped to work, but then drives fine. It has been an outside car for years so the rubber washers and such are compromised. It has been repainted and detailed. The last inspection was in 2013. I have been informed that the upholstery of the inside ceiling needs work. I really want to donate it and have it picked up, rather than getting money for it."

  • Troy's 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis
    2001 Mercury Grand Marquis

    "This vehicle is in good shape just showing normal wear and tear. It was my elderly parents car and was looked after very well. Routine oil changes occurred on or about every 3,000 miles."

  • Phylesha's 2000 Saturn LS
    2000 Saturn LS

    "We are wanting to get rid of the car because the Windows don't roll up, the odometer isn't working, and there's no side panel on the driver's door. The interior isn't the cleanest. The plates on the car are Oklahoma plates. I do not have a registration either, but the car still runs. "
