Can you pick up my car on the same day?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Carol Stream within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier handles all their own pick up scheduling, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer'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 business check depends on the policy of the local buyer who places an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid via check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

    2001 Honda Civic

    1996 Mercury Sable

    "The windshield is cracked about halfway down, needs a new water pump, and leaks oil and transmission fluid. Other than that, the car is great. I just don't have the cash to fix any of it. The car battery dies fast but, when the car starts, it keeps going without problems. I bought the car from my step-mom's niece and don't have papers for it, just old registration with her name."

  • Ryan's 1999 Chrysler Town & Country
    1999 Chrysler Town & Country
