"The truck has some rust, but the engine runs fine except that the Alternator went bad causing the battery to be drained. So both would need to be replaced. Also the brake lines will need to be replaced as well due to sitting for awhile without being used. "

As you can probably imagine, this is one of the most common questions we get here at The Clunker Junker. You have a junk car, and one of the most important things you need to know is how much money you’re going to get for it. While every car has a different value, and those values can range between $50 and $3000, we break our valuations down to three basic things, which happens to be two more than the number of Super Bowls “Da Bears” have won (yeah, we’re a little biter!).
"Put a lot of work into the car. New head gasket, radiator, rack and pinion, brakes, rotors, thermostat, starter, plugs and wires, battery, battery cables, catalytic converter, muffler, new tires with less than 200 miles on them, belts. Just bought a new car, got to get this thing out of my parking lot. "

One of the great things about selling your junk car to The Clunker Junker in Chicago is that our service always includes free pickup and junk car removal. Other companies will often quote you a price, and then try and charge you a tow fee to pick it up! So while their offer may seem higher on the face of it, watch out for those hidden fees in the fine print. We never charge to tow away your junk car. We have a sophisticated system that allows us to accurately estimate how much towing will cost and include that right in your instant offer.
I already know what you’re thinking though: “How long will it take to pick up my junk car?”. You’re not alone. Many of our customers need to have their car removed as quickly as possible. Maybe it’s at an impound lot and accruing fees. Maybe the city has threatened to tow the car away if it isn’t moved immediately. Whatever the case, we always try and pick up your car as quickly as possible. Unfortunately we can’t always guarantee immediate same day pickup, but on average most of our vehicles are picked up within 1 to 3 business days. Got a tricky schedule? Don’t worry about it. Our cash for cars buyers in Chicago can often pick up vehicles in the evenings or even on weekends.
We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Chicago, IL but we cannot guarantee it in all cases. It may depend on a number of different factors, such as the age of the vehicle and the exact location. Ultimately it is up to our local junk car buyers. If we can pay cash for your junk car with no title you will need to have a photo ID matching a valid regsitration to prove ownership. Also note that offers for cars with no title may be significantly lower!
If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Chicago, 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:
Chicago resident Stephanie, who makes a living as a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent, submitted her 1997 Buick Skylark Custom to The Clunker Junker recently. There were rims removed from the vehicle and her vehicle could start, however, it wasn't driveable. There is some moderate body damage on the car such as cracks, rust, paint damage, etc and the car had approximately 183,000 miles on it when she sold it. She did have her title ready to sign over. We hauled her car away for free around Aug 27 and paid her $150 payment on the spot at the time of pickup.
"Well I got the car as a gift from my dad. It was a first car and I didn't know how to keep up with it. I had a crazy ex girlfriend that slashed my tires and broke my back window. Now it's just junk and I want to sell it for cash. "
Here's what Stephanie had to say about her 1997 Buick Skylark and about us:
My car was all there, nothing removed from the motor, inside of the car, etc. Only some broken molding pieces.
Yup, it would start fine but it had a flat battery. You had to jump it
The car was not able to drive. It had a bad CV joint and would not move.
My vehicle had approximately 183,000 miles on the odometer when I sold it. Most of them were from some super fun road trips we took!
I was quoted $150 for my car. That was a lot more cash than the three other junk yards we requested offers from. Selling my junk car to The Clunker Junker was so much easier than trying to sell it online. Simply not needing to mess with flakes and non-serious buyers was well worth it.
"The vehicle starts half of the time, the tires may be leaking air, the tire rods are shot, its not drivable at all. The dashboard is out, except for the speedometer."
Jordan searched for Chandler car buyers to sell their 1992 Plymouth
"The car needs a new clutch. I just had it replaced about thirteen months ago, so it's not under warranty any longer. The a/c needs a compressor, and the passenger door needs to have two bolts replaced. Other than that, it was running fine. It has new brakes, alternator, radiator and fuel pump. The windshield does have cracks, but it was running just fine before the clutch went out AGAIN. "

"I don't want to invest any more money into the car. It broke down a month ago. A mechanic looked at it and told me he could get it running for $300, but there may be other damages. I don't really need a car right now, so I just didn't bother to get it fixed."
