How long does it take to tow away my vehicle?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in DeKalb within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier manages all their own schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the carrier'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 business check or cash depends on the requirements of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid by check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

  • Maggie's 1995 Ford Taurus
    1995 Ford Taurus

    "The transmission seals are leaking and I can't afford to repair it. The front passenger side has a crumple near the light due to someone backing into me. The tires are maybe a year and a half old. I replaced the radiator last fall and had lots of repairs done. It should run well after the transmission repairs but, again, I can't afford to have them done."

    1988 GMC Safari

    "I also have the replacement engine and transmission that I need to get rid of as well. The only lights missing are the headlights. Three tires will hold air long enough to roll for a day but the fourth popped off the bead. It used to be a very nice honeymooner rental vehicle."

  • Kaitlin's 1991 Ford Taurus
    1991 Ford Taurus

    "It can start but I lost the keys. I would need to go to the DMV to get the title and the windshield wiper motor went out, which killed the battery. New clutch in 2009. It's been sitting for about two years. We can get into the car, though. Also, the car is parked at my sister's house in another state. "
