How long does it take to pick up my vehicle?

We can usually pick up most vehicles in Santa Ana within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier handles all their own schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on their 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 business check or cash depends on the policies of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better record keeping. When you are paid via check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!
