How to get cash for junk cars in Palatine, IL

By now you’re probably wondering how this all works. We’ve gone to great lengths to make our junk car removal service as easy as it can possibly be. It essentially breaks down into three steps:

  1. Tell us what kind of junk car you are trying to sell and where in Palatine it is located.
  2. Our website will generate an instant offer in most cases. If you accept the offer, we’ll get you scheduled for pickup as soon as possible.
  3. Our junk car buyer in Palatine, IL will arrive and pay you cash for your car right on the spot, then tow the car away.

Pretty easy, right? In order to get cash for your junk car, you’ll need to get a few things taken care of before and after the sale. Don’t worry, it’s pretty straightforward stuff:

  1. Clear out all your stuff from your car. You don’t want to leave anything of value behind!
  2. Have your title ready to go. You’ll need to sign it over to the local junk car buyer
  3. After the sale, reach out to the Illinois DMV and cancel or transfer your registration.
  4. You’ll also want to cancel your car insurance, you don’t want to pay insurance on a car you don’t own!

But what if you’re trying to sell your junk car with no title in Palatine, IL? Don’t fret, there may be options available. We’d live to work with you to get all the proper paperwork together.

Of course, your vehicle's exact offer depends on various factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell the vehicle at auction, it's worth more than scrap values.
  • How large is the vehicle and how much does it weigh? Junk offers are often based on vehicle size .
  • Has the vehicle been in a accident? Vehicles with good parts are sometimes worth more money.

Do you buy junk cars in Palatine, IL with no title?

Will you pick up my car on the same day?

We can pick up most vehicles in Palatine within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own pick up schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Will I be paid by cash or check?

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, a lot have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid by business 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!
