COVID-19 UPDATE AND INFORMATION

The Clunker Junker and most of our partners are still operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, customer dropoffs have been suspended until further notice. Our staff is also working remotely, please excuse any background noise in phone calls! We are doing our best to keep things running as smoothly as possible. Thank you for your business, and stay safe!

Sometimes cars act like those in cartoons by sputtering, coughing out fumes, and doing a death scene worthy of Bogart. The only thing left to do is call for a rental and have the car towed home. Maybe It goes into the back yard until you can find the time to sell your junk car.

For those who live in HOAs, condos, or apartment complexes, the resident manager breathes fire, his yelling mouth taking up the whole screen, “that piece of junk has to GO!” The car’s owner is cowering behind, hopefully, a fire-proof wall, meekly nodding, while inside thinking, “I need to find someone who pays cash for cars in Santa Clara, CA, and fast!”.

Fear not! TheClunker Junker’s going to swoop in like Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest to give you cash for your junk car in Santa Clara, CA. You need an eyesore removed. You need money to put toward a new car. We get it. We can’t wait to see the smiling happy face as you hold out your hand for the cash and waive goodbye to that old clunker.

How does it work? You’ll fill out a few facts on our website. It will only take minutes. No waiting for prayer-filled days for someone on Craigslist or the local penny saver magazine to see an ad and respond. No waiting for days while your fingernails get chewed to nubs waiting for the buyer to finally show up.

When you fill out the details of your junk car on our website, we’ll pop out an instant offer after just a few seconds. The our valuation software is making up its mind how much cash we can pay for your junk car based on the information you provided us. When you accept the offer, we will show up, usually within 48 hours, for junk car removal. The resident manager will stop breathing fire, the butterflies and birds will fly about happily tweeting, and you’ll have money to put toward a new car. Everyone lives happily ever after.

I’m sold, how does the cash for junk cars process work?

  1. First, we need to know about your car. Is the body in reasonable condition, or do the tires and body point toward each other? Does the engine start? Can the engine move the car? Being honest will avoid any contention at the time of pickup. We’ll need to know the year, make, and model of your car (such as “the car is a 2015 Nissan Altima.”) Next, you’ll tell us your zip code so we can make sure the offer comes from the closest Santa Clara, CA junk car buyer near you.

  2. We make you an instant offer. You accept. Now we need to know about you. Your name, address, and phone, of course, are required. We need information about the car’s title. Sometimes we ask for pictures of the car and documentation. After all this is done, we’ll notify the carrier we use for a pick-up. We’re at the mercy of his schedule, so while they work quickly we can never guarantee a specific time or day for pickup.

  3. When our Santa Clara, CA junk car removal specialist arrives, they’ll check over the car to see if the application matches the car. You’ll hand over your keys and the car, hold out your hand for a check, and the carrier will exit stage left.

The Clunker Junker is here to help you. We buy junk cars in Santa Clara, CA in most conditions (we’ve even bought wrecked and mangled autos.). We know you’re pressed for time as well as money. When we give you cash for cars, we’re taking off your shoulders the worry and the anxiety from time spent avoiding fire-breathing wives or property managers.

Sell your junk car in Santa Clara, and stay safe

Let’s admit it: we’re Americans. We want what we want and we want it yesterday. The word instant means something to us. It means more when we have a no-joke property manager or homeowner’s association rep frowning in distaste as s/he gives us a pink slip. Get rid of it or I will.

If you put an ad in Craigslist or in the local penny saver magazine, you have to wait for someone to answer. Then you bicker over price. Next, you wait to see if they even show up when they said they will. Only then can you in good conscience give the buyer your keys and the title to the car. Not to mention, there are some pretty sketchy characters on Craigslist and you never know if they may want to scam you or even cause you harm. The Clunker Junker fully background checks all of our Santa Clara junk car buyers so you can rest assured our service is compeltely safe.

Selling your junk car on the private market might take weeks or months. It might never happen at all. If it doesn’t happen, the city tows your car, leaving you with no car and no money. You might even get a bill for the towing and be responsible for impound fees. Yikes!

Our Santa Clara junk car removal service always includes free tow away

When The Clunker Junker buys junk cars in Santa Clara, CA towing is free. We realize if your car isn’t running, you possibly aren’t working. No paycheck. No money for a tow truck. We get it. We have a carrier and don’t need to trouble you to pay for towing. We just give you cash for your junk car and then get out of your hair. And smile as we watch your happy dance in the rear view mirror.

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

Today's average value for vehicles in Santa Clara, California is around $328 with pickup included. If you have a full size pickup like a Dodge Ram or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is at $410, but could be $278 for smaller and mid-size sedans like a Dodge Neon. Of course, your vehicle's real value depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell your vehicle at auction, it's worth more than junk values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how much does it weigh? Scrap pricing is often based on vehicle size .
  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with good parts are sometimes worth more .

Do you buy junk cars in Santa Clara, CA with no title?

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Santa Clara, 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!

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Santa Clara, 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 it take to tow away my vehicle?

We can pick up most vehicles in Santa Clara within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever 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 business check or cash depends on the policies of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. When you are paid via business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Tricia's 1997 Honda Accord
    1997 Honda Accord

    "The vehicle was in a side collision, pushing in the left rear door making it so it doesn't open. The frame around the left rear tire was also pushed in, almost touching the tire. The speedometer doesn't work anymore and sometimes the engine stalls out and shuts off (it's an automatic engine). The car is driveable, though insurance considered it totaled. I just have another vehicle and wont get this registered/inspected so it will be towed away. I'd like to sell it and get some money back. When my other vehicle was being worked on I bought this to get around and I just simply don't need it anymore."

  • Brian's 1990 Honda Accord
    1990 Honda Accord

    "The only reason it doesn't move is the battery and the clutch but I have a brand new clutch sitting in the back seat of the car. I traded my dirt bike for it. I have the bill of sale and proof of sales."

  • Josep's 1997 Toyota Avalon
    1997 Toyota Avalon

    "The only issue is the drive belt recently broke. Other than that, I have been driving the car for the past four years without issues and just bought new tires in the past month. "

  • Seth's 1995 Chevrolet Astro
    1995 Chevrolet Astro

    "Gear box is out, so steering is difficult but manageable. Replacement part wasn't worth it. Cv axle (hub bearing), idle arms, tie rod end and upper ball joint all just under two years old."

  • Persephonie's 2000 Mitsubishi Diamante
    2000 Mitsubishi Diamante

    "It was my daughter's car I bought her in high school. She traded it in for a lemon at a dealership for $800. We have to kill the deal, so I helped her get a real car loan and a reliable vehicle and did not trade it in. Now I need to junk it."

  • Marjorie's 2002 Kia Sedona
    2002 Kia Sedona

    "This vehicle has had a few fender benders and the a/c stopped working last summer. It needs a couple door handles replaced and the driver side window motor needs replaced. This van is running and can be driven to a drop off location. The battery has to be jumped and both front tires go flat every week or so. The rear tires are new and has had all the brakes replaced in the last couple years."
