I bet you’re frustrated, aren’t you? You have one or more junk cars taking up valuable yard or garage space and you just want to get rid of them as quickly and easily as possible. They are a relic from when your husband decided he was going to be a “car collector” or home mechanic and fix them up, but now they’re just sitting there rotting away. “I’ll fix up these junk cars and then sell them for a profit!” he said, five years ago. Well, we have some good news for you. The Clunker Junker pays cash for cars in San Marcos, CA and we’ll even tow them away free of charge! That’s right, we’re San Marcos’s top junk car buyer and we’re ready to make you an instant offer to buy your junk car. Before you try dragging those junk cars out and scrap them at the junkyard, contact us first!

Trust us, we get it. Selling your junk car can be a real headache. It’s not quite as easy as selling a nice used car because the pool of available junk car buyers is much smaller.

We buy junk cars in San Marcos and do it with integrity

The Clunker Junker is the most dependable, honest, and friendly junk car buyer in San Marcos, CA. You won’t find anyone else in the area who will pay you the most cash for your junk car, pay you on the spot, and pick it up for free. We know we’re not the only option you have when you need a junk car removal service in San Marcos, so we always try and go above in beyond to make sure our customers have the best possible experience.

One thing to watch out for when selling your junk car for cash is that many other companies or even local junkyards will give you an offer but either won’t tell you you have to pay for the towing, or will try and pull what’s called a “bait and switch”. They’ll give you one offer over the phone but when they show up they’ll point out minor problems or issues and try and force you into taking a lower amount. Unfortunately this is common in our industry, but when you work with The Clunker Junker you can be absolutely sure that the quote we give you on our website is the amount you receive when we come pick up your junk car.

Don’t spend even one more second trying to sell your junk car elsewhere. We put an end to low ballers, no-shows, and potentially dangerous people you might encounter on certain classified websites. Because we fully vet and background check every San Marcos junk car buyer in our network, you can be sure that you’ll have a safe and pleasant experience when they come and pick up your junk car.

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

How much is my car worth in San Marcos?

Today's average value for vehicles near San Marcos, California is $303 with pickup included. If you have a full size truck like a Chevy Silverado or SUV such as a Nissan Armada, the average value is a little more at $378, but is only $257 for small and mid-size sedans like a Honda Civic. Of course, your vehicle's exact offer depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell the vehicle at wholesale auction, it's worth more than salvage values.
  • How big is the vehicle and how much does it weigh? Salvage offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with working parts are sometimes worth more money.

How long does it take to pick up my vehicle?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in San Marcos within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier handles all their own pick up scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer's 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 policy of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have moved to check for better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid via check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
