As long as you have a vehicle as well as ownership of the title, we will more than likely agree to the purchase of your vehicle. Even if you are trying to get cash for your car with no title, we still might be able to arrange the sale (we cannot guarantee this).

How to get cash for your junk car in Elgin

Essentially, the process of selling your junk car to The Clunker Junker involves simply sending a request and getting an instant offer. We will make a firm offer based on your car’s year, make, model, and condition. If you accept, this quote will not change as long as you are as honest and accurate as possible when answering our initial questions.

There are three key steps in the process of selling your junk car in Elgin:

  • Submit the details of your vehicle through our website at the top of this page
  • Accept our instant offer and arrange a time for pickup that is convenient for you.
  • Finalize the title transfer paperwork and receive your cash.

Skip the online classifieds and auctions.

One of the more traditional methods for selling vehicles is using online marketplaces such as eBay, Craiglist, and Facebook Marketplace, but many times, these platforms don’t breed good junk car buyer and seller experiences.

Sometimes, it’s not clear with whom you might be meeting, and there is no real guarantee the buyer will ultimately want to buy a junk car. Sometimes, the buyer won’t even arrive at the showing, which leads to waste time and wasted effort.

Selling with the Clunker Junker, where we offer real cash for junk cars in Elgin, IL, is as easy as clicking your mouse a few times! To get started and sell your junk car - simply provide your vehicle’s year, make, model, and trim, and then type your zip code to find the correct state branch to meet your needs. Disclose a few more details, including your full name so we know to whom to make the check, and you’ll be all set!

Our Elgin junk car removal service is always free

Once you accept the offer, the only thing left to do is get paid! Depending on your zipcode, we’ll dispatch our local Elgin junk car buyer to your location to complete the transaction. We’ll strive to always pick up and pay for your car within 1 to 3 business days, and we will tow your vehicle away for free after leaving our payment with you. Because our local junk car buyers manage their own scheduling, we can never fully guarantee any specific time or day for pickup.

Many other similar businesses actually charge a percentage of the final offer for this service, but you have our guarantee that our junk car removal service will always cost nothing and hassle-free.

So, what are you waiting for? Find out how our service of offering cash for cars can help you finally get rid of your old junk car once and for all. Contact us today or fill out our easy-to-use form to get started.

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

Has brand new alternator, starter, spark plugs and wires, and brand new power steering pump. Have not switched the title over to my name yet because I could never get it running well enough to keep it. Just want to junk it and get some of my cash back."
