How long does the pickup take?

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Downers Grove within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier handles all their own schedules, so we can never 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 cash or business check depends on the policy of the buyer near you who places an offer on your vehicle.
