What is the value of my vehicle in Riverside?

The current average offer for vehicles near Riverside, California is $254 with pickup included. If you have a full size truck like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Nissan Armada, the average value is a little more at $317, but may only be $215 for smaller and mid-size vehicles like a Saturn. Of course, your vehicle's real offer depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell your vehicle at wholesale auction, it's worth more than junk values.
  • What size 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 good parts are often worth more money.

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!

How long does the process take?

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

What form of payment will be made, cash or check?

Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have moved to check for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid via check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!
