  2. Next, we make you an instant cash offer. If you like the offer, accepting it is as easy as clicking a button on our website. We’ll need to know who owns the vehicle and where to pick it up. We may ask you to send us photos of the vehicle and the title. If you need to sell your car with no title in Hilo, HI we may be able to help (sorry, not guarantees).

The driver will inspect your vehicle to see whether the vehicle’s condition matches your description. You should have already removed your license plates, but have them at hand. If you have provided accurate information to us, things will go smoothly, and you’ll be paid cash for your car for the agreed upon price. There are no hidden fees or surprises.

We buy junk cars in Hilo, so say goodbye to auctions and classifies.

We buy cars in Hilo and dealing with us is the easy way to go because we seamlessly pay cash for cars without all the hassle. But you still may be tempted to try to make more money by selling to an individual. As you’ll quickly learn, selling your used or to private buyers is often way more work than it’s worth.

You will have to advertise and create ads and listings on several sites, answer emails and phone calls, arrange to show your vehicle to people who probably won’t show up anyway, watch strangers drive off on a test drive with your vehicle as you hope they return it. And you probably do not feel comfortable inviting strangers over to your home or place of work. This will go on for several weeks unless/until your asking price is low enough to attract a buyer. Our Hilo junk car buyers are all fully vetted and background checked, so you never have to fear being scammed or harmed.

If you sell your vehicle to an individual, you may have to deal with DMV paperwork, and what if you or the buyer signs the title incorrectly? We’ve been doing title work in Hawaii and can help you through nearly any title situation. If you do not disclose your vehicle’s mechanical problems in your advertisements or to people who respond to your advertisements and your lemon breaks down on the buyer immediately after the sale, you may be slapped with legal action. There go your profits.

Salvage yards and junkyards often present their own set of problems. They are not interested in paying a respectable amount of cash for your car or offering free car removal in Hilo, HI, so they may not pay you the amount of money they promised you, or they’ll show up without the check. They may have fly-by-night haulers who charge you to tow the vehicle away.

You’ve got a vehicle that you need to get rid of, but most of the options to sell it are riddled with problems. Let The Clunker Junker help. We buy junk cars and trucks and do it in an ethical manner. So what are you waiting for? We are paying cash for cars right now!

If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

We cannot buy cars in Hilo, HI without a title

You would need to obtain a replacement 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 Hilo, HI 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:

How long does it take to tow away my vehicle?

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

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policies of the buyer near you who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. If you are paid by business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

    "Truck is loaded with spare panels and parts, I just need it out of the driveway. Engine turns over and runs, then shortly after dies out. Plenty of new parts on it, just need it gone."

  • Kimberly's 1993 Lincoln Town Car
    1993 Lincoln Town Car

    "I think the car has electrical problems and the battery is dead and that is why it won't start. Honestly, at this point, I'd just like it to not be stuck in my driveway."

  • Zanonda's 1994 Acura Vigor
    1994 Acura Vigor

    "I think the transmission is shot. It refused to go into reverse. The CV boots are shot, so have not had the vehicle re-aligned. The tires are fairly new, purchased them last year. Did not want to fix the vehicle."

  • Paula's 2001 Dodge Neon
    2001 Dodge Neon

    "When we bought the car in cash and the guy signed the title, we went to go get it transferred, we were told it was never signed over to him and that we would have to get it bonded. I can't afford that."

  • Rick's 1999 Acura CL
    1999 Acura CL

    "The right driver side is dented on both the fender and the hood. It is drivable but only for a short distance, as it either has a bad radiator or hose. Inside has all the items except for the radio, as I am pulling that out because it is tied to a system. "

  • Jerry's 2001 Isuzu Trooper
    2001 Isuzu Trooper

    "Motor bearings/motor runs but knocks badly. Not drivable on the street in its condition. Vehicle in very excellent condition but will need a motor swap. All other parts are in excellent condition."
