At The Clunker Junker we pay top dollar for junk cars in Connecticut and pick them up from you free of charge, paying you in cash on the spot. Why would you choose us, especially when you look at how complex it is to sell to our competition? The Constitution State is one of the most important in the history of America, having been the location where many decisions were made regarding the creation of the United States. With all of this history and talented locals, it’s shocking that doing something as simple as selling a junk car should be so difficult.
You’ll need to drive up and down Route 15 looking for a scrap car buyer between Stamford and Hartford, haggle for a realistic price and make the sale. You might as well mow their lawn while you’re there! Selling to a junk buyer is a hassle, which is why if you want to sell your junk car in Connecticut you should sell to the Clunker Junker. Not only do we pay cash for cars in Connecticut, but we’ll also tow them away!
Connecticut also has a rich history with automobiles. In fact, the very first automobile law was passed in Connecticut in 1901 limiting the maximum speed of vehicles to 12mph! A lot has changed since then. Cars have gotten bigger, faster, and more reliable. Even still, sometimes it’s just time to sell your car and get something new with the latest technology, and maybe a fresh warranty! Before you trade in that vehicle to the dealer, give The Clunker Junker a call, we may be able to offer more than trade in!
Selling your car to The Clunker Junker is simple and we pay top dollar for junk cars. We also realize that many of our sellers are doing so because they need the money desperately. For this reason, we make it our mission to pick up the vehicle and pay you as quickly as possible right on the spot. Most cars are collected in one to three business days, with some even the same day you accept your offer whether it’s located at home or in one of the local junk yards.
The first step to selling your vehicle is to let us know what you’ve got. Fill out our vehicle questionnaire by telling us the make, model and year of your junk car. We'll also need to know if the vehicle starts and drives, and if you have a title for the vehicle. Sometimes we can even buy junk cars with no title in Connecticut.
In most cases you'll receive an instant offer right on our website in seconds. It’s not our goal to shortchange you, which is why we give you a reasonable offer for your junk vehicle. We consider ourselves the best Connecticut junk car buyers because we pride ourselves on our quality offers and customer service.
Once you’ve accepted the offer for your junk car, we’ll send out a skilled Connecticut junk car removal team to collect it. Typically, this collector will pay you on the spot in cash or a check. Plus, unlike many of our competitors we charge you no fee for collecting the vehicle from your home or wherever it’s located.
You might be pretty surprised at how much your junk car could be worth. Depending on the condition of your vehicle you could be ready for a pay check of up to $10,000 for your car. We buy junk cars in Connecticut, used cars and we’ll even pay cash for junk cars with no titles in some cases. When we put a value on your car, it usually ends up in one of the following buckets:
We buy junk cars for cash, even those which have no valuable parts and are often rusted out and in a terrible condition are generally only worth their weight in metal. Therefore how much we can pay you will depend more on the weight of the vehicle than the make or model, or if it can run. Most of these cars are worth between $50 and $200.
In-between junk cars and used cars we have an odd middle ground where the car has a few valuable parts but is primarily ruined. For these we’ll be able to pay far more than for an equivalent heap of scrap metal, but not as much as a working used car.
Junk cars are our bread and butter, but we also buy used cars and can pay more than 20X what a junkyard would offer. We classify used vehicles as those that are still working, no matter how heavily used they are. In this case we’ll typically pay much more, up to $10,000 for the very best modern used cars with quality parts in a great condition.
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Connecticut title when you are selling your vehicle. If there are multiple owners listed on the title, they must all sign the title unless the names are separated with "OR".
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Connecticut title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Connecticut you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
State of Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles Attn: Title Unit 60 State Street Wethersfield, CT 06161

"The vehicle had a front-end collision that caused the insurance to total the car. The grill is missing, the front bumper is damaged, there's a minor hood dent, and the driver-side turn signal popped out, but it's still functional. There's also a pre-existing dent in the trunk lid."
"The truck stopped on me the other day, and I don't know what's wrong with it. I had it towed to the house. I've had the truck for four years, and this is the first time it has ever stopped on me. I have always kept up with the maintenance on it. I'm tired of putting cash into it."
"The heat stopped working a year ago, so I stopped driving it. Now, I cannot get it to start. I know it was low on gas, and it's been sitting for so long that the battery might be dead. "
"The vehicle has been at my house for about three years. I need to junk it. My daughter bought this car as a first car, and the car quit on her. We don't know how to get rid of this car. It's just been here going on three years, and I live in a townhome. The car needs to go, because I am getting complaints from my association."
"The timing chain went out on the vehicle and destroyed the engine. Other than that, the car is fine. There's no damage on the body except some small scrapes on the driver rear quarter panel. All windows are intact with no cracks. The tires are within a couple of years old, and the front tires are a year old. The car has about 127,000 miles on it. The interior is also in good condition. "
"I was in a T-bone, hit-and-run accident. The driver-side door needs to be replaced, and the rear passenger tire is flat. It comes with the spare tire and an extra full-sized tire ($100 value). "
