We make selling cars in San Francisco, CA simple, easy, and risk-free!

Parking space in the Bay Area is rare and expensive, so we want to help you get rid of the cars that are costing you stress, time, and money. To offer you the easiest and best experience possible when we buy your car, we’ve created a simple three-step removal process:

  1. In the questionnaire, tell us a little bit about the car you want to sell. To offer the most accurate price, we need the exact year, make, and model of the vehicle. We’ll also need you to tell us if you have the vehicle’s title, whether the vehicle starts and drives, and if there is any accident or body damage. We buy cars in a variety of conditions, so don’t worry if your vehicle is in rough shape!

  2. Once we have the details, we’ll give you our best offer - instantly. If you accept our offer, we’ll get in touch with our awesome car buyers in San Fran. Most vehicles are removed within 48 hours of accepting, but please be aware that we can’t guarantee the time or day that it will be removed. That being said, most of our junk car removal specialists are typically flexible and will often do pickups on nights and weekends if possible.

  3. When our car removal team arrives, you’ll get your full price in cash in exchange for your keys, title, and car. No matter the amount, we will always give you cash or an equivalent, including business checks. Once the transaction is over and the car has been sold, you’re free to use that money as you wish. Grab a meal at your favorite restaurant like Fiorella or House of Prime Rib. You could also spend a day at Fisherman’s Wharf, or, better yet, use it as a down payment on your new car!

We buy cars in San Fran regardless of condition

While The Clunker Junker is a catchy name, we buy cars in San Francisco in a wide range of conditions. Of course, we buy cars that are complete and will probably never see the road again. For these vehicles, the value is mostly determined by the size and weight of the scrap metal it is made of. However, we pay cash for cars in SF that are not at all! Used cars with plenty of life left that you just need to sell quickly are our specialty. We can also pay a lot more for these vehicles than most because we are a licensed auto dealer who can re-sell at much higher prices than our competitors.

Will I get more money selling my vehicle privately?

If money is all that you’re after, then yes, the classifieds are probably the better choice. At The Clunker Junker, we aren’t buying your car because we want to use it for trips down Highway 1 or even short trips down the street. A private junk car buyer might offer more money, but the process is also going to be longer and far more inconvenient. To sell through classifieds, you have to connect and meet with a serious buyer who is going to do their best to nickel-and-dime you to the lowest price. They’re going to want to test drive your vehicle, find every flaw, and create a hassle-filled experience to wear you down. With us, you’re guaranteed the best price for your car, no matter the condition. We’ll give you fast cash, pick up your car at no cost, and make sure your San Francisco car removal is a pleasant and successful experience.

If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

Can you pay cash for junk cars in San Francisco, CA with no title?

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

How long does the pickup take?

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

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policies of the local buyer who places an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid via check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!
