For more than 75 years, St. Petersburg reinforced its claim as Florida’s Sunshine City by giving away newspapers on any day that the sun did not shine. The city’s evening newspaper rarely had to come up with the free papers, but the offer put St. Pete on the map. But all of that sunshine and humidity has some drawbacks, especially when it comes to cars. Cars in St. Pete often have sun damaged paint, overheat sitting in traffic on I275, or grow mold on the interior due to excessive moisture during the rainy season. It can be difficult to sell a car in Saint Petersburg if it’s not in good shape, but The Clunker Junker can help by making you an instant offer no matter what condition your car is in.
Abundant sunshine in St. Petersburg on Florida’s West Coast invites everyone to experience the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and our cash for cars St. Petersburg offer gives you something else to enjoy. Public transportation can get you to the St. Pete Beaches if you have no car. However, you know better than anyone else that you have more fun and freedom when you drive yourself.

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Saint Petersburg within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier handles 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.
Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the policies of the buyer near you who places 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 tow drivers. When you are paid by business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"I have had this car for about six years. The front is not damaged, it just had a bad paint job, so now the paint is peeling. Last time I drove this car long distance, it overheated and cut out but, afterwards, I started it with no problem. I was already planning on junking this vehicle to get a truck, so I have not taken it to the shop to find out what went wrong. It could be an extremely easy fix but I don't know. Leather interior, premium sound, 135k miles, rebuilt title, crack in windshield but it hasn't gotten larger (about eight inches long)."
"Just a frame with the bed, cab, doors, and fenders attached. Engine is in the bed, it's no good. Transmission, axles, and transfer case are long gone. Interior is no good. My dad is looking for the title, as it is his and he bought it new. Can help load with a backhoe."
"Needs a fuel pump and possibly spark plugs. It was running up until a few days ago. It will not start now. It has a new battery purchased in December and the front tires are fairly new. Back tires are old. "
"Vehicle has relatively new clutch, holds all fluids, and does not overheat or die. The engine still runs decently well also and there's no antifreeze in the oil. It was in a fender bender from which the hood is all bent up and it's missing part of the front right. Also, the front right tire has been bent out of alignment and the front tires are pretty worn down. Front windshield is cracked but all other glass is fine. Steering is very loose and needs a new rack and pinion. It is drivable but would need a lot of work to pass inspection."
"It burns oil too quickly and I didn't put oil in it one time and now it knocks pretty badly. All it needs are new bearings but I don't have the cash for that and I just want a more reliable car. "
"The car has two brand new all-weather 90K tires on the back and a decent pair on the front. I can show approximately $5k worth of maintenance and upgrades since getting the car with very low mileage (redid the transmission, electrical, etc.). On returning from getting new tires, on the way to go get a new battery, the car appears to have lost function of one cylinder. It currently has a dead battery (which starts when jumped) and runs (but only on three of the four cylinders). I don't know how to check cylinders to see if it's just a spark plug or something but figured it worth mentioning because it is otherwise a great car for someone willing to keep it maintained with the basics, oil, etc., on occasion. Thanks for your cash offer."
