We pay cash for cars in Pasadena, CA and our car buyers pick up in record time. With our full car removal service, you can increase your cash and decrease your stress in just a few minutes.

Getting cash for your car in Pasadena, CA is easy!

When you want cash for your junk car in Pasadena, CA, you don’t want to waste your precious time trying to sell it online. We’ve streamlined our car buying process over many years. Here’s how our junk car removal process works:

  1. The first step is to provide us details about your car. You will have to provide some basic information about what the kind of car it is (i.e. Chevy Malibu, Honda Civic, Oldsmobile Cutlass) as well as information about the condition of the car (i.e. Running, wrecked, status of the title). You can even upload photos of your car to get the most money possible. After you have submitted the necessary information, you will receive an instant cash offer on your car. The only thing left for you to do is accept and collect your cash!

  2. Once you have accepted the offer, one of our Pasadena, CA car buyers will call you directly to schedule a pickup time. Just let us know where to pick it up and how to reach you to arrange for pickup.

  3. We’ll tow it away for free! That’s right, you do not have to lug your car to some random location, our junk car buyers are going to come to you. They will inspect the vehicle and exchange payment, then they’ll tow that car away for free. Yes, free car removal in Pasadena, CA!

What do you need to sell your junk car in Pasadena, CA?

To ensure a smooth transaction, you should start to get some material together to sell your car in Pasadena, CA. Of course, you’ll need the keys and the car. Those are the obvious ones. You’ll also want to gather any ownership paperwork you have. Make sure to let us know if you don’t actually have the title, as that can change the offer and what’s needed to sell the car. While we can never guarantee it, we can often pay cash for junk cars with no title in Pasadena.

When the Pasadena car buyer arrives at the pickup time, you’ll hand him the keys and the ownership documentation. After the sale, you’ll want to let the California Department of Motor Vehicles know that you have sold the car, as well as see what steps are needed to cancel your registration. If there’s any insurance on the car now is the time to cancel that too. You certainly don’t want to keep paying insurance on a vehicle that you no longer own.

We buy cars and are proud of our long-standing positive reputation.

We get it, you’re a little skeptical of an online cash for cars program. Furthermore, we are not like the others. Some other salvage yards, or Pasadena, CA junkyards will tell you one price over the phone or online but then pay you less when they meet with you in person. Sometimes that in person meeting is after you’ve already paid to have your car towed to their location and are now stuck there. Not us! As long as your car matches the description you filled out on our online questionnaire, your offer is guaranteed. We’ve also got that free car removal. There’s no out-of-pocket expense to you for using our cash for cars service. We take care of it all.

You may be considering a private sale through eBay, Craigslist, or print ads. This process might yield you a couple more dollars, but at what cost? You’re going to need to create the ad, possibly pay for the ad, and then sit back and wait… and wait… and wait. There just aren’t that many individual people who buy cars in Pasadena, CA. Finally, someone will call or email you about your vehicle and set up a time to see the car, maybe test drive it. Does your insurance cover them during a test drive? Are you sure they want the junk car, and not to scam you? How do you know they’ll actually transfer the ownership out of your name after the sale? These are all valid concerns when trying to sell a car to a private seller. Working with private buyers can be especially difficult when you have a car. Simply finding someone who is willing to purchase the car could forever. Our cash for cars in Pasadena, CA program is safe, professional, and efficient.

There’s no reason not to use our cash for cars in Pasadena, CA service. Quit procrastinating and get cash for your car today!

Do we pay cash for junk cars in Pasadena, CA with no title?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Pasadena, 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 Pasadena, 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 usually pick up most vehicles in Pasadena within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on the buyer'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 business check or cash depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who places a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for the safety of truck drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid via business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

    "I just need get rid of the car ASAP. I have another car on the way and need to pay for titling and as well as some school tuition. I believe the transmission is going out and I can't afford that. Other then that the car is in perfect condition. The leather seats are perfect. The AC,heat,CD player and sun roof work great as well. Even has more then a half a tank of gas. "

    "I just stopped driving this car this past Saturday, when it got a new car. It does have a crack in the windshield but is still intact. Has a dent in the back. It runs. The mileage is 162,000."

  • Jay's 2001 Chevrolet Venture
    2001 Chevrolet Venture

    "The transmission is out, but it still drives in first and second. You can manually shift up to drive, but that won't last. It's still drivable not that I drive it. I stopped right away. It's in great condition 160xxx miles on it. Great heat and ac. Even the rear fits eight people. All the seats removable. Everything is original and in fair conditions on the inside."

  • Shanecia's 2000 Ford Focus
    2000 Ford Focus

    "I want to get rid of my car because I had repairs done on the car twice and then it only ran for a day, both times. I had the radio taken out and I am waiting on my title to come in the mail. I just paid $405 dollars to do a title and tag change so I'm still waiting for it in the mail. I was on my way to the school at 8:00 this morning and at a red light the car just turned off, I had to push it out of the road."

  • Daniel's 1994 Subaru Legacy
    1994 Subaru Legacy

    "The battery is dead but it should run otherwise. One side view mirror is taped on. It has three good tires, the fourth is flat and in the back seat but there's a donut on right now. The rear passenger door is smashed and will not open. There is also some issue with the exhaust on the undercarriage that would not pass inspection. I spent too much money on it already. What it needed to pass inspection was not worth it for me. I need a more reliable car."

  • Michael's 1997 Mitsubishi Galant
    1997 Mitsubishi Galant

    "The overdrive went out, I don't believe it is a transmission issue seeing how I drove it without overdrive for about a year and all other gears shift fine. I never had it looked at because every shop told me it was a transmission problem without looking into it. They told me I'd need a new transmission. It starts up every cold morning. Just got a new car last Friday and need money for the down payment and haven't had much luck posting it online."
