Aloha our Pacific island friends! Are you looking to sell your used or junk car? At The Clunker Junker, we’ll pay cash for cars in Hawaii and pick them up completely free of charge! Hawaii’s unique geography and economy can make buying junk cars difficult, but we will always try our best to help the where we can. We can usually buy cars without much problem in the more densely populated parts of the island, such as Honolulu, Pearl City, and Hilo. Smaller and more remote places can be more difficult, so unfortunately we cannot make any guarantees about paying cash for junk cars in every Hawaiian city.
From The Big Island to, Oahu, to Kaua’i, Hawaiians have one of the most unique cultures in the United States. The economy of buying and selling used cars in Hawaii is also unique. With the large expenses required to import and export both vehicles and raw materials, junk car pricing in Hawaii often leaves something to be desired. The same vehicle that would sell for $1000 at auction in the continental US might only sell for $75 or $100 in Hawaii! That’s a huge difference, and it can be difficult to predict.
So while it can be difficult for us to make high offers for junk cars in Hawaii, we try our best to make up for it with the best customer service in the entire junk car industry. When we buy junk cars in Hawaii, you can be sure you are working with an honest, reliable, and trustworthy junk car buyer. When you’re hanging out at your next Luau, we want to tell your friends and family: “Lu’WOW, The Clunker Junker made it super easy to get cash for junk cars in Hawaii, I would highly recommend them!”
From the tropical forests of Kauai to the white sands of Waikiki Beach, your beautiful state can be pretty rough on cars. Sun, water and even lava can really wear down a car. But don’t push your junk car into Mauna Loa – sell it to us instead! We pay top dollar for junk cars, even ones which don’t run. Selling your car is a simple three-step process:
Using our online form, tell us your car’s year, make, model and trim. Describe all damage as accurately as you can. Detailed information allows us to provide an accurate price quote.
Just provide your contact and location information to start the pick-up process. While we’re unable to offer guaranteed pick-up times here on our website, we’re usually able to arrive at your location within just a day or two. We can meet you wherever you like including a residence, commercial location or even public place.
Our Hawaii junk car removal specialists will pay you in cash or check directly on-site. Along with the vehicle, you’ll need to include the keys and title. You won’t be charged for any towing.
Forget about traversing the Road to Hana. What should you do if your car won’t even make it down the street? Sell it to us. Your junk car is worth cash – and probably more than you’re expecting. We buy junk cars in practically any condition including:
These vehicles are badly damaged, ugly to look at and probably don’t even run at all. They’re true junk cars which need to be towed away. The exact amount we pay varies based on the weight and type of vehicle but you’ll likely get between $5 to $50. We weren’t kidding, Hawaii is a tough market!
These cars aren’t in great condition, but they still have a value in parts. The total value will vary based on the type and quality of the specific parts, but generally these cars are worth several hundred dollars. Typically, it doesn’t matter if these cars run or not.
We buy cars which look great and run well. We’re often faster and easier than dealing with private buyers through an online ad and less of a hassle than dealing with auto salvage yards. We offer very competitive payments based on current auction value. Your car could be worth hundreds.
We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Hawaii 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".
The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Hawaii title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Hawaii you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:
Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Hawaii can be a difficult process. Unfortunately, you cannot just sell any junk car that ends up on your property if you do not own it. You'll need to follow the Hawaii abandoned vehicle removal procedures. We have given a general overview of what that entails below.

Unfortunately we cannot purchase any vehicles in Hawaii without a valid title. As the legal owner you will need to apply for a duplicate or replacement title through your local DMV office. Please also note that to sell your vehicle in Hawaii, you must have a valid and current registration. The state requires this to ensure that there are no registration fees left unpaid.
Hawaii often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Hawaii DMV.
Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local DMV office.
You will need to notify your auto insurance company that you have sold the vehicle so they can either cancel your policy if the vehicle was sold, or transfer/renew the policy on your new vehicle.
You should fill out a notice of transfer within twenty days of the sale of your vehicle

"It was a project me and my dad started, but we decided to junk it for some cash. We lost the title when we started it and never got it registered. I bought it from a guy for $2,000. He signed the title, but when it came to registering the name on the title, it turned out that he had left out his first name out of habit. Long story short, it's in pieces. We have it positioned to be picked up, and we just need it gone."
"The clutch has gone out, and the transmission is no longer in the car. It's in the truck. I'm just tired of messing with it and need it gone. The motor is in the car, but it is not fully mounted. It sits on bricks. The driver-side tire is also not on it, but it's in the trunk."
"The tires hold air for a day or so. I can pump them up, and it also has four snow tires in the back of it that I would love for you to take off of my hands. I can't find the title, and I move in a few days, so I can't get the title. It was last registered in my name. I drove it here a few months ago, but it doesn't drive anymore after sitting."
"I was in an accident a year ago that involved hitting a brick mailbox with the passenger side front of the vehicle. It currently has some damage to the front quarter panel, and from what I understand, it needs a lower control arm. It also needs a front tire on the passenger side. "
"The vehicle is not running due to a blown head gasket, and a friend didn't have time to work on it. It has been in two wrecks that did damage to the bed of the truck. The paint is peeling off, also."
"I've been having issues with the car for about a year. I was told it was the transmission, but I believe the reason it stopped working was because of a valve cover leak that I had. It will turn on, but it will not stay on. I'll be taking the battery out of the car before it's taken away."
