Since we include towing and removal, you don’t have to worry about surprise charges.

How much is my car worth in Tampa, Florida?

The cash offer that you receive for your car will be based on many factors, so there is no way to give you a clear estimate without gathering some information first. However, if your car is only worth the value of its raw materials, you can expect to receive anywhere from $50 to $225 and they’ll likely end up at a local Tampa yard or auto salvage yard. You might get a bit more if some of the parts are still in demand because those can be removed and sold for more. As for cars that are still operable, their value is often based on however much similar cars are selling for at Tampa car auctions.

How long does it take to tow away my vehicle?

We can pick up most vehicles in Tampa within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own scheduling, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the policy of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better record keeping. If 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!

    1993 Volvo 850

    "The vehicle will start, but it won't allow you to drive very far. As for the title I haven't got the title due to not having the money to get the bonded title. And I don't have the funds to get it analyzed to find out what's wrong with it. We have a truck that we need to get fixed up, so as much as I love the car, we have to keep the vehicle that is running up an going! "

  • Brigitte's 2002 Saturn Vue
    2002 Saturn Vue

    "The A/C doesn't work. We replaced a fuse for the window but it will not go up and this vehicle has been a cash guzzler since we bought it. I need a reliable vehicle in the future. "

  • Patty's 2002 Ford Focus
    2002 Ford Focus

    "The car has some rust along the bottom. The passenger front door does not open and the passenger side back window does not open or close. Other than that, it's okay. As cold as it has been here, this car starts right up being outside and not plugged in. It's amazing, especially when many of my neighbors' newer cars did not start in many days. I'm going to junk it, as I'm buying a newer truck. I cannot get the next page to open but the answer to all the questions is yes. The mileage is at least 180,000."
