Are you tired of looking at an old clunker sitting in your Bristol, CT driveway or garage? Many older cars can be sold to a private buyer, but the unfortunate reality is that it can take many long weeks or even months to find a private buyer for a very old vehicle. When a car is very old or in very poor condition, finding a private buyer on your own may be impossible; they are undesirable almost by definition. The dealership may not be interested in accepting an old, worn out car as a trade-in either. So what can you do when you need to sell your car quickly? When many people find themselves in this type of situation, there comes a time when they begin to wonder if they need to pay someone to haul the old vehicle away. Some may even procrastinate on taking action because they want to delay this seemingly inevitable expense for as long as possible. The good news is that you do not have to pay your hard-earned money to get rid of your old clunker. At The Clunker Junker, we are excited to pay you cash for cars in Bristol, CT. After you learn how to sell your junk car to us, you will wonder why you waited so long to contact us!
Before you pay a junk car removal service to haul the vehicle to a Bristol junkyard in town, contact us to request a free instant quote. We pay cash for junk cars in Bristol, CT regardless of condition. Some junk car buyers only pay cash for certain makes, models and model years, but this is not the case with us. As long as the car is complete, we are ready to buy junk cars regardless of their age, condition or model. In fact, the car does not even need to be operable.
Now that you know that you can get cash for junk cars from us, you may be curious to learn what your car is actually worth. If you have researched your car’s value online, you may have been disappointed to learn that sites like KBB and others are ineffective at valuing a car that doesn’t run or was in a wreck. However, your junk car has value to us. Here’s a basic rundown of how we value junk cars
What kind of car is it? As you can probably imagine there will be a big difference in price between a 2008 Cadillac and a 1995 Toyota Tercel. Year, make, and model is one of the biggest factors in determining your junk car’s worth.
Are there still useful parts on it? Desirability of parts is another factor to consider when you sell your junk car in Bristol, CT. Because so many are sold and are still on the road, parts for a Toyota Camry might be more in-demand and desirable than a unique vehicle like an Alfa Romeo.
Is it really a junk car? As you can tell from our name, we buy junk cars in Bristol, CT. But we also buy used cars that still have plenty of life in them. Maybe it needs minor repairs and you don’t want to deal with it, or just want some cash for your car so you can use it as a down payment. We’ll be happy to pay cash for used cars as well, and we can sometimes pay up to 20X more than a Bristol junkyard would!
If you want to learn how much your junk car is worth, you simply need to complete the online quote form at the top of this page. This form can be completed within a minute or two because it only asks you for basic information about the car. This includes its age, make and model, mileage, general condition and a couple of other factors. By taking this step, you may be thrilled to learn that you can get cash for cars in Bristol, CT. You may be even more excited to learn that our Bristol, CT junk car buyers can be at your home to take the vehicle off of your hands right away.
After you learn more about the process to sell your junk car to us, we will contact you to set up a junk car removal appointment. We have a strong network of junk car buyers in Bristol, CT, so we are able to make this appointment for a time within the next two days in many cases (sorry, we can’t guarantee any specific time for pickup). Regardless of where you live in the country, we are usually able to make this appointment very quickly. We always arrive promptly as scheduled, and we will bring the money with us to pay you cash for your junk car on the spot. If the vehicle cannot be driven away, we will be ready to tow it. You may think that you would need to pay us a fee to tow it away, but this is not the case. We never charge a towing fee for inoperable vehicles.
When we arrive, you should be ready to let us take the car from you right away. We will also need the car keys and the car’s title, if required. We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Bristol, CT but do this on a case by case basis. After we leave, remember to let the Connecticut DMV know that you have sold your junk car. You also should cancel your auto insurance policy for the vehicle.

The current average value for vehicles in Bristol, Connecticut is around $270 with haul away at no cost. If you have a full size truck like a Dodge Ram or SUV such as a Ford Excursion, the average value is at $337, but could be $229 for small and mid-size sedans like a Ford Fusion. Of course, your vehicle's exact value depends on various factors:
Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Bristol, CT. Sorry about this! Connecticut has very strict laws around vehicle ownership and we are at the mercy of following those regulations. You would need to obtain a replacemnt or duplicate title from your local DMV (see below). Once you have your title in hand we'll be happy to buy your junk car!
If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Bristol, CT 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:
We can usually pick up most vehicles in Bristol within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier manages 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.
Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the policies of the local buyer who makes a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid via business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"Just within the last two weeks my car didn't want to start up. It just cranks. My mechanic thinks it's the starter, but iI do not want to add anymore money. I recently replaced the fuel pump, fuel injector, crank shaft sensor and a brand new battery with two year warranty."
"The gauges, stereo, and drivers side window are missing. Everything else is intact. Truck in decent condition. Engine starts but has blown Pistons. No keys available."
"I'm pretty sure it's the fuel pump. The right turn signal works, just missing the cover to it. The interior is dirty but cleanable. Car was also rust free up until a year ago, it was only in another state. "
"There is rust underneath the engine and transmission that is deteriorating. Although the car is still drivable, it has difficulty starting engine in really cold weather. After a few attempts, it will start up again and run smoothly."
"Transmission was replaced three times. I’m not doing again! Radiator has a leak, which may have caused transmission problems (according to service manager at the dealer). Differential needs replacing. Battery is dead. Scrape along passenger side door. Otherwise, exterior is good. Alloy wheels are flaking. Leather interior, all power everything, and wireless headsets with DVD player. Engine was always strong. Have not run it in two years. Parts car or restore it. Most comfortable ride I ever had, especially for long trips. If I were well off, I would have everything done and keep it."
"All four wheels are mounted (as i recall). The driver front tire is off the rim and the rest of the tires are flat. The engine should start with a battery charge or a jump but the vehicle does not shift into gear. Not sure if the linkage broke or if there is an issue with the transmission. The last time it was driven, something snapped attempting to shift into gear and now the shifter moves freely and the vehicle is in neutral. "
