Picture this: You have a junk car you’re ready to sell because it’s wrecked or no longer runs. “How hard could it be to find someone to pay cash for cars in Sarasota, FL?”, you think to yourself. You spend a few hours getting photos, writing up an amazingly detailed ad outlining everything that’s wrong with your car, and spend $25 or $50 to list it for sale on Autotrader and Craigslist. And then you wait. And wait..and wait some more. Nothing. After a week, you finally receive an email from a prospective junk car buyer in Sarasota, FL who seems interested and wants to come take it for a test drive. The only problem is, your car doesn’t start, which you already made clear in your ad; but of course no one read it thoroughly. Another couple of weeks go by, maybe someone finally says they’ll come out to take it and never shows up and you never hear from them again. This is a common experience for anyone trying to sell a junk car in Sarasota, FL, but we are here to help by paying cash for junk cars!
The Clunker Junker buys junk cars in Sarasota, FL and we pay top dollar and pick them up completely free. In many cases we can get all of this done in 48 hours or less. Does this sound too good to be true? Well, let us prove to you just how easy and quick we make the process of selling your junk car in Sarasota, FL. Not only that but we provide industry leading customer service and always go way above and beyond anything our competitors are able to do.
So how does all of this work? Here’s how to get cash for your junk car:
Describe your junk car. To make you an accurate offer, we’ll obviously need to know what kind of junk car you are selling and what condition it’s in. We’ve made our online questionnaire very simple with basic yes or no questions. Remember, we’re buying junk cars so we expect vehicles that do not run, have body damage and rust, or are otherwise not in great shape.
Check out your offer. You probably think someone has to review your submitted information and will give you a call back hours later, right? That’s what most of our competetors are doing after all. But you’ll be happy to learn that with The Clunker Junker we can give you an instant offer in seconds in most cases. No waiting or wondering.
Get paid cash for cars. This is everyone’s favorite part for obvious reasons. If you accept our offer, one of our local Sarasota, FL junk car buyers will reach out to you to come pick up your car. They’ll pay you cash or check right on the spot and then load the car up on their tow truck. As long as you accurately describe your vehicle to us, you never have to worry about the price changing from what you agreed to on the website.
That’s pretty much all there is to it! We weren’t kidding when we said we make it easy to get cash for junk cars in Sarasota, FL
If you have accepted our offer on your junk car you’ll need to gather and take care of a few things prior to and after the sale:
Make sure you have all your documentation ready. While we buy junk cars with no title in Sarasota, you’ll often get a higher offer if you have a title in your name ready to go. Please note that we never guarantee being able to buy a car without a title, but we can work with you within the laws set forth by the state of Florida.
Clear out all your junk from the inside of your junk car! You don’t want to leave clothes, electronics, or other personal belongings in your car when it gets towed away, right?
At the time of pickup you’ll want to have your keys, title (if required), and of course your vehicle ready to go.
After the sale you’ll be responsible for letting the DMV know you sold your car and to cancel your registration and insurance.
When we pay you cash for cars, we’ll also offer free junk car removal in Sarasota, FL with every offer. If you’ve ever tried to sell a junk car to a Sarasota junk car buyer or junk yard you might have realized that you have no way to get your vehicle to their facility.

Any offer you receive for your car from The Clunker Junker is always the exact amount you’ll be paid. We don’t have any hidden charges or fees to cover towing, title, taxes, or anything else. What you see is what you get.

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Sarasota within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer manages all their own scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policy of the local buyer who places an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for the safety of truck drivers and better book keeping. When you are paid via business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

"I need the cash, and the car has minor mechanical issues, but I don't have the resources to fix at this time. One of the side doors is stuck (off the track) and one of the front quarter panels (I think that's what its called) has a dent."
"I was involved in a hit-and-run about a week ago. The back bumper is severely damaged and the trunk is scrunched up only on the left side. However, the battery is less than a year old and I had a new alternator put in less than three weeks ago! "
"I just need it off the property becuase were moving and we have a camper so in not going to be able to take it with me. It is missing a battery."
"The transmission is going out in the car and makes it uncomfortable to drive. There is also an issue with the wire connections. The battery has to be unplugged in order to cut the inside dash lights off. The overall appearance of the car is great."
"Recently replaced almost entire front end and alternator to it and still have the receipts. It runs but I lost the key. I just want to junk it now."
