If you’re someone who likes to drive their cars into the ground until they die, we’re with you. It’s a financial sound decision! But eventually you’ll have to let go of your car, else you will start spending more for repairs and maintenance than it’s actually worth. At some point, you will be unable to pass an inspection or even get the car on the road safely, so it will be time to find a new vehicle. But the question remains, “How do I sell my junk car in San Mateo, CA?” The answer is simple. Sell your junk car to The Clunker Junker because we pay cash for cars in San Mateo, CA and tow them away completely free.

You could try to sell your junk car on some auction or classifieds site, but that is never a guarantee. You could spend countless hours taking pictures and writing great descriptions without ever attracting a buyer. In some cases, you may even have to tow the vehicle to the buyer’s location to dispose of it. At The Clunker Junker we buy junk cars in San Mateo, CA because we don’t think anyone should ever have to pay to dispose of their junk car.

Another option is to trade in your vehicle when you buy a new one. If your car is pretty junky and going to require some improvements, you won’t get much money for it. The dealers and other buyers want a solid investment that they can re-sell on their lot, so your junk car is probably not going to be much interest to them. The good news is that we pay cash for junk cars in San Mateo, California, and it doesn’t matter what condition the vehicle is in.

How much is my car worth in San Mateo?

The current average value for vehicles near San Mateo, California is around $347 with haul away at no cost.

Obviously, your vehicle's exact offer depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell the vehicle at auction, it's worth more than metal values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Scrap pricing is often based on vehicle size .
  • Does the vehicle work correctly? Vehicles with good parts are sometimes worth more .

Can we pay cash for junk cars in San Mateo, CA with no title?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in San Mateo, 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 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 usually pick up most vehicles in San Mateo within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier handles all their own pick up schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

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

    1987 BMW 325

    "The car has been sitting for about a year, so it'll need a jump start. It was running great before I stopped using it. I needed something more presentable for work, so I bought a new car and stopped using this one. "

  • Melissa's 1998 Dodge Stratus
    1998 Dodge Stratus

    "The engine has been partially removed, but is on site. The tires are also on site. I had been having issues with it, and was made an offer on another vehicle that I couldn't pass up. I no longer need this Stratus."

  • Alexis's 2000 Buick Century
    2000 Buick Century

    "The breaks are not so good and I'm selling it because I'm having a baby. I hope to buy a couple of baby items and save the rest of the money. Thank you and I hope you can help us."

  • Willie's 1994 Mercury Sable
    1994 Mercury Sable

    "The car has been wrecked, but is still drivable. It just has some damage on the front end of the driver's side. It may need a jump start because it has been sitting in the yard since last year and the tires need air in them. The damage is minor, but I do not want to spend the money to get it fixed because my husband and I do not drive."

  • Marshae's 2000 Nissan Maxima
    2000 Nissan Maxima

    "The car runs perfectly fine. Everything is in great condition. No check engine light. No problems with anything. We bought a new battery. The interior is nice. The exterior is nice also. Just a minor scrape and dent on the rear passenger side from a gate. I just want to get a Honda because I'm an Honda fanatic. Please offer a legit price. Thank you."

  • Mildred's 2001 Nissan Maxima
    2001 Nissan Maxima

    "The driver's side window is busted out. I bought the car, but it's in my ex's name. I have the title with his name on it. He up and left and there is no way for me to contact him to switch it to my name for me to sell the car, so I would like it removed. I'm moving out of TX next week. It is drivable and I do have the keys. The filter also needs changing. You have to give it some gas for a few minutes to start it up and get it to stay on."
