When you sell your junk car in Bloomington, IL you will need the keys, the title (if applicable), and the actual vehicle itself. If you are looking for cash for your junk car with no title, let us know. While we can’t guarantee anything we can sometimes buy vehicles with just a registration and photo Id.

We know that you have many options when it comes to finding a junk car buyer in Bloomington. Friends and family may have suggested that you try to sell that old clunker on Craigslist, but selling your car privately on the internet can lead to a multitude of problems. Using this method, you could get ripped off easily and you may not know what your car is worth to know if you are getting a fair price or not. Private junk car buyers are notoriously unreliable and it’s usually a waste of time trying to find a legitimate one.
Plus, you don’t want to run into another Craigslist killer again, do you? Just kidding…mostly.
Auctions are also an unnecessary hassle to try and get cash for cars, due to the unpredictable nature of the auctioning process. You may have even thought of taking your car to a local Bloomington junkyard. While this is many people’s first thought, a lot of these common junkyards have very poor business practices and people are easily susceptible to getting scammed by them. For instance, they may make you a guaranteed offer over the phone, and then when you have the vehicle towed to them they’ll make up some excuse to change it. What are you going to do? You just spent your money getting the car there, so they have the upper hand.
Don’t get scammed! We have an excellent reputation as a junk car buyer and we can offer real cash for junk cars in Bloomington, IL.
So don’t leave that old junker sitting around to take up space you could be using for other things. And don’t continue to pay insurance and registration fees year after year on a car that you may not even be driving at all anymore. We buy junk cars and we want to buy yours. Visit our website today to fill out the necessary information and get your quote. Who knows? You may like it and decide to accept the offer! You’ll never know if you never try, right?

Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policy of the buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers.

"The 4WD shaft was taken out by our mechanic (I don't know why) and is currently in the back of the car. Many scratches all over the car, paint has been spilled multiple times inside, glove box doesn't shut, smells kinda funky, doesn't like sitting at stop lights, gas guzzler, etc. On the bright side, the tires are relatively nice, new spark plugs, brand new radiator (still leaks coolant), and comes with a free new testament mini bible in the overhead compartment. "
"I'm looking for someone who buys junk cars. The truck runs, but I'm not sure it's safe to drive since the frame is damaged. "

It has brand new tires that were purchased last year. The gear shifter broke. It has a dent in the back passenger door from a hit and run. Air conditioner does not work but the heater works great. "

"New battery. Two new tires. New alternator. "Service engine light soon" is on. Car engine shuts off on idle (below 1,000 rpm), especially when A/C is turned off. Inside trunk release does not work. Fuse on dashboard light needs to be changed (dashboard light does not light up)."
