What you need at the time of sale.

Before we can buy your junk car in Coeur d’Alene, ID you’ll need to take care of a couple of things:

  1. Get your car ready for sale and remove all your personal items.
  2. Have your keys and your title ready if it’s required. We buy cars with no title in Coeur d’Alene, ID but cannot buy every car in every circumstance.
  3. Contact the Idaho DMV and cancel your registration. You’ll probably want to cancel insurance as well.

On arrival, our Coeur d’Alene car buyer will check out the car and makes sure it matches the actual description and then hand over either cash or check in the agreed upon amount. Abandoned cars cannot be legally purchased, and we cannot pay any impound fees.

We buy cars in Coeur d’Alene, ID to save your sanity

Let’s talk about your other options for a moment. You’re probably thinking, “I bet I can get more cash for my car in Coeur d’Alene, ID” by selling the car myself. We won’t lie, you might be right! But at what cost? Here are a few things you’ll be dealing with when trying to sell your car on your own:

  • No matter how detailed your ad is, people will be bothering you with the dumbest questions you can possibly think of. “How many miles are on it?”…197,000 just like the ad says. “Can I come take it for a test drive?”… No, the ad says it doesn’t run. You may soon lose your faith in humanity.

  • Even though you’re advertising a junk car for sale, people will nitpick every single minor dent, scratch, and paint chip to try and get you down on price. When we buy junk cars in Coeur d’Alene, ID, we expect them to be and never hassle you over imperfections.

  • You’ll run into multiple no-shows and time wasters. “I’ll be there at 6:30pm!” they’ll say. As 9:00pm rolls around, its clear you’re never going to hear from them again. It’s too bad you just canceled that dinner date and ruined your whole night.

Maybe you think having a Coeur d’Alene, ID junkyard or salvage yard to buy your car will be better? That’s what they’re in business for, right? We would probably get carpel tunnel trying to write about all the horror stories we have heard over the years. Here’s a common scam they like to pull: You’ll call them up, give them accurate details about your vehicle, and they’ll give you a quote over the phone. So you have your vehicle towed to their junkyard expecting to receive that amount. What do you do when they hand over a check for $100 less than they said? You’re not going to pay to have your car towed back home, you’ll probably just accept that you’ve been scammed and move on. Bummer!

When you get cash for cars in Coeur d’Alene, ID from The Clunker Junker, you can be sure the amount you see on our website is the amount you’ll be paid. That is the end of the story! We have been building our positive reputation for years and are very proud that we’ve become known as one of the most honest car buyers in Coeur d’Alene, ID.

We don't pay cash for cars in Coeur D'alene, ID with no title

How long does the pickup take?

We can usually pick up most vehicles in Coeur d'Alene within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own pick up schedules, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better record keeping. 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 is any issue with the local buyer!

Here is what other customers have said:

  • Cole's 2002 Ford Explorer
    2002 Ford Explorer

    "The a/c, front and back needs new evaporators. The relay switch needs replacement. Ball joints and struts need to be replaced in front and it needs new brakes on all four wheels. There's 192,000 miles"

  • Josiah's 1993 Honda Accord
    1993 Honda Accord

    "The car was stolen from my house and set on fire. I haven't personally seen it because it's been sitting at the Sheriff's impound lot, but I've been told there's only paint left on the back near the bumper."

  • Kenneth's 1993 Isuzu Rodeo
    1993 Isuzu Rodeo

    "There's an exhaust leak causing noise. A bad sensor on the intake manifold is causing a sluggish take off and uneven shifting. Until now it's been a daily driver and reliable. Dent is on bumper, on the rear passenger side."

  • Peggy's 1993 Pontiac Grand Am
    1993 Pontiac Grand Am

    "My daughter slid off road in a snowstorm and hit a curb. The force if impact messed up the front end suspension. The passenger side tire rubs on the wheel well. It has a new windshield and fuel pump. It runs well but isn't drivable. We have removed the battery and aftermarket stereo for another car. The mechanic told us it's not worth fixing, better off to part it out. The interior parts missing are radio and the interior passenger door panel that surrounds the door handle."

  • Jaynee's 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
    1996 Volkswagen Jetta

    "The car might have about 150k miles. I am getting rid of it because, although it does still drive, it's a little rough. I'd like to get some money from this junker to buy a new car. I already have a $150 offer from a competitor, but they had poor customer service. I'm really hoping you guys can offer more than that or at least treat me properly."

  • Jim's 1985 Chevrolet Van
    1985 Chevrolet Van

    "The van runs great. Only thing missing on the interior would be two of the backseats. It was originally a twelve passenger van, but two of the seats were removed when I purchased it. It runs great and only has 129,000 miles on it. The spark plugs and spark plug wires need to be changed in order to get it to run again. It just stopped starting on Friday. I replaced the distributor cap but I do not have time to get into the spark plugs and wires. I just need to sell it as soon as possible it is sitting at my work warehouse right now."
