We buy junk cars in Champaign, IL, so stop listing it for sale online

You may be asking yourself, “Isn’t selling through a classified site online cheaper, easier, and faster than selling through junkyards these days?” The answer, of course, is a resounding NO. We are a trusted Champaign junk car removal company that has a heavy emphasis on fast, reliable, and easy service - every time!

Getting cash for junk cars in Champaign, IL isn’t always easy, and posting an advertisement on Ebay or Craigslist definitely has its difficulties. These types of sites have no enforcement of rules, no guarantee of payment, and often are buyer- rather than seller-oriented. They are also anonymous, often communicating only through text or email, which can lead to uncomfortable or unsafe situations. It can take weeks or months to get even a low offer on a vehicle on Craigslist; especially for a damaged, inoperative car or vehicle. However, we guarantee to give honest cash for cars without any of the scams, waiting, or self marketing required for online sites.

Selling your car to a Champaign salvage yard isn’t any better

Most junk and salvage yards are not maintained and are without a proper business structure, leading to environmental and toxic hazards linked to real health risks. Countless junkyards across the nation are illegal, unregistered, and thus unregulated. Furthermore, many will try to talk down your price or find a way to cheat you out of what you deserve, accompanied with general poor customer service. We are a highly regulated junk car buyer that adheres to all guidelines, with an unerring and honest pricing system. Not only that, but we have locations in Champaign and all over Illinois for your ease and convenience, happy sellers accepting hundreds of offers every single day. We buy junk cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. Not only that, we pride ourselves on being the biggest, best, and most trustworthy in the industry.

Tired of pulling your hair out in frustration over the technicalities of classified sites or the outdated tactics of run-down, overused junkyards? Our hassle-free, easy-to-use website keeps your hair where it belongs - on your head! Simply enter your information, make an account, and receive an offer from the comfort and privacy of your home, no strings attached. With us, you can rest assured that your beat-up old vehicle has been hauled away safely, in exchange for a padded wallet. It really is a win/win! Accept your quote today!

How much will you pay for my car in Champaign?

Today's average offer for vehicles in Champaign, Illinois is $288 with haul away at no cost. If you have a big pickup like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Nissan Armada, the average value is at $360, but could be $244 for small and mid-size sedans like a Dodge Charger. Obviously, your vehicle's real value depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell your vehicle at auction, it's worth more than scrap values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Junk offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with working parts are sometimes worth more money.

Do you buy junk cars in Champaign, IL without a title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Champaign, IL with no title. In all cases you will need to be able to prove you own the vehicle. That is usually done by showing a photo ID matching a valid registration for the vehicle. In some cases additional paperwork is also needed. Contact us if you have any questions about what is needed to sell your car with no title in Illinois. Note that we can never buy abandoned vehicles under any circumstance.

If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Champaign, IL 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 the process take?

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

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policies of the buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some 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 guarantees every payment and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Kristan's 1999 Hyundai Sonata
    1999 Hyundai Sonata

    "Here are all the details. All panels are on the car except the back bumper, which is attached with metal twist ties. It was in a wreck which beat up the bumper, broke the right taillight, and caused damage to the back right panel. There is some rust. The antenna is there but broken. The lock to the trunk has been popped out. The driver's side door handle has broken off. The turn signal/utility handle inside is still attached by wires but is dangling and therefore non-operational. It does still work to turn on/off the headlights. Seats inside are all worn but in good condition. We simply don't have the time or cash to fix the car up and we can't keep letting it sit in front of our house unable to start."

  • Melanie's 2003 Volkswagen Jetta
    2003 Volkswagen Jetta

    "Car doesn't run, could be the alternator. I just purchased a new battery in December. The car lost all power and doesn't have juice, even for the door locks. Could be alternator, just don't want to put any more cash into the vehicle."

  • Kelly's 2004 Chrysler Concorde
    2004 Chrysler Concorde

    "Collision into snowbank. Cheaper to buy a new car than repair the Chrysler. Parts under the hood are present but have suffered damage, uncertain as to which parts due to unfamiliarity with cars."

  • Scott's 1998 Dodge Stratus
    1998 Dodge Stratus

    "A/C does not work, the passenger side mirror is off, and passenger side front fender is dented. Has four good tires and no missing parts. All windows work and interior is like new. It's a standard and has a rebuilt transmission in it. "

  • Elizabeth's 1999 Audi A4
    1999 Audi A4

    "I am getting rid of the car because it needs a new axle wheel bearing hub. The back driver's side tire cannot be put on as a result, but it is there. "

  • Sara's 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
    1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

    "There is a problem with the exhaust, so the RPM's run high and the car doesn't move very fast. The body is in very good shape and there is little to no rust. The muffler is only a year old and the trunk won't stay closed as there is a problem with the latch. The interior is in very good shape as well."
