We buy junk cars in Decatur, so say goodbye to auctions and classifies.

We buy cars in Decatur and dealing with us is the easy way to go because we seamlessly pay cash for cars without all the hassle. But you still may be tempted to try to make more money by selling to an individual. As you’ll quickly learn, selling your used or to private buyers is often way more work than it’s worth.

You will have to advertise and create ads and listings on several sites, answer emails and phone calls, arrange to show your vehicle to people who probably won’t show up anyway, watch strangers drive off on a test drive with your vehicle as you hope they return it. And you probably do not feel comfortable inviting strangers over to your home or place of work. This will go on for several weeks unless/until your asking price is low enough to attract a buyer. Our Decatur junk car buyers are all fully vetted and background checked, so you never have to fear being scammed or harmed.

If you sell your vehicle to an individual, you may have to deal with DMV paperwork, and what if you or the buyer signs the title incorrectly? We’ve been doing title work in Illinois and can help you through nearly any title situation. If you do not disclose your vehicle’s mechanical problems in your advertisements or to people who respond to your advertisements and your lemon breaks down on the buyer immediately after the sale, you may be slapped with legal action. There go your profits.

Salvage yards and junkyards often present their own set of problems. They are not interested in paying a respectable amount of cash for your car or offering free car removal in Decatur, IL, so they may not pay you the amount of money they promised you, or they’ll show up without the check. They may have fly-by-night haulers who charge you to tow the vehicle away.

You’ve got a vehicle that you need to get rid of, but most of the options to sell it are riddled with problems. Let The Clunker Junker help. We buy junk cars and trucks and do it in an ethical manner. So what are you waiting for? We are paying cash for cars right now!

If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

How long does it take to pick up my vehicle?

We can pick up most vehicles in Decatur within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier manages all their own scheduling, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup window on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the policy of the buyer near you who places an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid by check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

  • Kelly's 1998 Mitsubishi Montero
    1998 Mitsubishi Montero

    "It's missing the front clip. I rear-ended someone in December. The radiator is busted and the oil filter was punctured and oil ran out. I have 22-inch rims on the car that I want to keep. I just had new alternator, brakes, and rotors put on. Had work done on the engine to repair oil leak this past summer. Have all receipts to show. Clean title. "

  • Ben's 2002 Ford Windstar
    2002 Ford Windstar

    "VHS entertainment center and six-disk CD player still fully operational. Sometimes it starts, sometimes it will not. The security system sensor is going bad and will occasionally trip the security and make it so the car won't start. If it starts, it runs great, no leaks."

  • Myhanh's 1998 Saturn SL
    1998 Saturn SL

    "I'm junking it because I just bought another car. I had the car for two years, it was my daily transportation. I don't have the title but I have the registration. It maybe need a new battery or jump and the interior smells like cats."

  • Chassity's 2003 Hyundai Accent
    2003 Hyundai Accent

    "It was my first car. It has an oil leak and the front seal on the transmission is broken, so the car can't move but it will start. I never paid taxes on the car, so I don't have original documents on the vehicle but I do have paperwork with my name on it and where it was bought from. I'm junking it because it's taking up space and I have another vehicle. "

  • Randy's 1994 Toyota Corolla
    1994 Toyota Corolla

    "Blew the head gasket but it still runs. Costs more to rebuild the motor and head than to just junk it and buy another running Toyota for some strange reason? Go figure. "

  • Marquisha's 2000 Buick Regal
    2000 Buick Regal

    "I bought it off someone online just for a point A to point B car. The lady lost the title for the car. She wanted $1,000 but I talked her down to $600 because of the title and the fact it needs a tune up. When I test drove it, it was driving okay, everything was fine until the next day. I went to drive it to my interview and, within five miles, it shut off on me and keeps doing it. I feel like I got jipped out of my money and now I just want to get rid of the car. "
