What is cash for cars?

Cash for cars is a streamlined car selling experience that benefits both the seller and potential buyer. Instead of having to deal with the hassle of listing, advertising, and showing your car - all which can be time consuming and costly - you can get an instant offer that takes the guesswork out of the process. By using cash for cars, you’ll know exactly how much money you will receive for your car on the spot. Plus, there are no haggling prices with cash for cars.

Selling privately in Pasadena can be very time consuming and costly. You must first determine an appropriate price for your car, advertise it, meet or talk to potential buyers, and then conduct the purchase transaction. You’ll also need to figure out how to handle paperwork such as title transfers. In addition, buyers may not have enough cash or check on hand at the time of sale - this could create problems if they decide to pay through other methods such as check or bank transfer that could take days or weeks to arrive in your bank account.

Using cash for cars eliminates all of these potential hassles and headaches by providing an instant guaranteed offer that you can accept right away and have cash or check on hand at pickup time. We also handle all paperwork so you won’t have to worry about title transfers or any other paperwork associated with selling privately. This makes cash for cars a much more attractive option than selling your car privately in Pasadena.

How does it work?

At The Clunker Junker, our cash for cars process is fast and simple. It starts with you telling us all the details of your vehicle. You’ll need to provide information such as the year, make, and model, vehicle mileage, condition, and location. The more accurate and honest your information is, the more accurate our offer will be. In some cases we may request photos of the vehicle to verify the condition of the vehicle.

Once we have all your information, we will give you an instant offer online or over the phone. You never have to wait for a callback or call back with an offer. If you accept the offer, we will schedule pickup with one of our carriers or Pasadena car buyers. Most vehicles can be picked up in a few days, sometimes even same day in some cases. However, we can’t guarantee any specific pickup time.

When the tow driver arrives, they’ll exchange payment for your keys, ownership documents, and vehicle. The vehicle is towed away for free as well! The buyer will handle all title paperwork but you should notify your DMV that the vehicle was sold. And that’s it! With The Clunker Junker’s cash for cars program in Pasadena, California it’s that easy to get rid of your unwanted car and get paid fast!

Eric's Expert Take

Eric is our founder and CEO and has nearly 15 years of experience buying and selling used and junk cars in Pasadena, CA. He is also a data nerd with a finger on the pulse of the cash for cars industry and salvage vehicle values.

Greetings! I’m Eric, the man behind The Clunker Junker. I’ve been taking a close look at the recent data related to our offers in Pasadena, California. On the whole, vehicles are going for an average of roughly $782. It’s intriguing to note that the average price for pickup trucks is a tad lower, at about $370. For instance, imagine a Ford F-150 with a few years under its belt - it might fall into this price range. In contrast, the small-sized vehicles, like the Toyota Corolla, are fetching our highest offers, averaging around $825. Somewhere in the middle, you’ll find SUVs, and crossovers, say, for instance, a medium-sized Subaru Outback, that are coming in around $705.

Let’s look at a few insights from The Clunker Junker. We’ve recently acquired close to 219 vehicles and dispensed over $200,000! It seems the Honda Accord, a comfortable sedan known for its reliability and fuel efficiency, is the hottest item in Pasadena. However, even the most popular vehicles like the Accord can have issues such as automatic transmission failure or problems with the power steering pump. At times, the cost of repairs can outweigh the car’s value. If you find yourself in such a situation, selling the car instead of repairing it might be a prudent decision.

Being entrenched in the “cash for cars” industry has given me an intimate understanding of used car prices. From what I see, there’s been a slight dip in Pasadena, with prices decreasing by about 3.6% each month over the previous year. The reason could be tied to an increase in new car inventories, which has inadvertently impacted used car values. Basically, the market is a bit uncertain at the moment. That being said, now might just be the opportune time to sell your car before prices potentially drop further. Be assured, I’ll continue to keep my finger on the pulse of the market to update you on any noteworthy trends.

    After having the main battery light go on in our "05 Prius (the last time it happened it cost us $3K to repair) and the catalytic converter being stolen out of it as well, it was time to let this car go! The dealer said there was no value to it as a trade in but they junk it for us. I decided to junk it myself. Within 24 hours the car was gone and I got a check for $865! $500 was the next best offer. Great service and a very easy process! Thank You The Clunker Junker!

  • Excellent customer service, they went above and beyond. They gave me the best price around to scrap it. Never junked a car before, so I was a little weary going about it. Received a call within 24 hours after I had accepted the offer. Spoke to Sue, who even though was her first day; made everything so easy. Shout out to Sue for that! Was extremely surprised how easy everything was. They called me before showing up and then that was that. Altogether between the application, phone and pick up tool maybe 10 mins. Highly recommend this place, they're amazing!

FAQs about selling your car in Pasadena, CA

Your questions, answered

Do I need a title to sell my vehicle?

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!

Does the title need to be in my name?

Yes, to legally sell your vehicle you must be the legal owner. That means a title or registration in your name. Any titles that are "signed over" to you cannot be used until ownership is fully transferred into your name.

Does my vehicle need a catalytic converter?

Stolen catalytic converters are an increasingly common problem. The converter is not technically required, but your offer may change significantly if it is missing or has been replaced with an aftermarket part. All offers are subject to change when the converter is missing or replaced with aftermarket.
