The Clunker Junker is the most dependable, honest, and friendly car buyer in Santa Monica, CA.

We know we’re not the only option you have when you need a car removal service in Santa Monica, 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 car for cash is that many other companies or even local junkyards will give you an offer, but either won’t tell 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 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.

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

We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Santa Monica, 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 Santa Monica, 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 pick up my vehicle?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Santa Monica within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer handles all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever fully 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 business check or cash depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid via business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!
