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 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!

Get Paid in Cash for Junk Cars in Connecticut

Selling your car to The Clunker Junker is simple, and we pay top dollar for 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 junkyards.

  1. Step 1: Tell us the vehicle that you’re driving.

    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 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 cars with no title in Connecticut.

  2. Step 2: Accept our competitive cash offer.

    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 vehicle. We consider ourselves the best Connecticut car buyers because we pride ourselves on our quality offers and customer service.

  3. Step 3: Our buyer picks up the vehicle free of charge and you get paid

    Once you’ve accepted the offer for your car, we’ll send out a skilled Connecticut 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.

We buy cars in Connecticut, but how much can we pay?

You might be pretty surprised at how much your 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 cars in Connecticut, used cars, and we’ll even pay cash for 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:

Pure Junk cars

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.

Junk cars with some value

In-between 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.

Used vehicles

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.

How to sign your Connecticut car title

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".

  1. Be sure you are using the "Transfer by owner" section on the top of the back side of the title. Do not sign or print in the Re-assignment by licensed dealer sections!
  2. First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Signature(s) of Seller(s)" (see image).
    Always sign in pen on the seller line, and never sign in the dealer section.
  3. Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title, where it reads "Printed Name of Seller(s)". Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get a duplicate Connecticut title

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:

  1. Request the Connecticut Request for Duplicate Certificate of Title Application. Fill out the form when it arrives in the mail.
  2. A lien release must accompany the application if a lien was listed on the original title.
  3. Bring your duplicate title application to your local DMV or mail your application to the CT division of motor vehicles at:
      State of Connecticut
      Department of Motor Vehicles
      Attn: Title Unit
      60 State Street
      Wethersfield, CT  06161
  4. The fee for a replacement Connecticut title is $25.00. Requests through mail may take as long as 90 days.
