What to do before and after you sell your car

We’ve made our car removal process in Rockford, Illinois pretty easy, but there are some things you’ll need to take care of both before and after the sale.

  1. You’ll want to make sure you remove all your belongings from the vehicle before it is towed away.
  2. Remove your license plates because you’ll need to return or transfer them later.
  3. When the sale is done, contact the Illinois DMV and let them know, so you can cancel your registration.
  4. While you’re at it, you should also cancel your auto insurance.

With that boring stuff out of the way, perhaps the most important thing you should do after you sell your car is go out and celebrate! Eat one of Abreo Restaurant’s creative American dishes or relax with a few drinks at Prairie Street Brewing Co.

How long does it take to pick up my vehicle?

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

What form of payment will be made, cash or check?

Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policy of the local buyer who places an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many 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 all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

  • Caley's 2007 Suzuki Forenza
    2007 Suzuki Forenza

    "I didn't get my oil changed for too long. I eventually did get it changed but, coincidentally, the oil light suddenly came on a few days later and the car started to sound funny, so I pulled over. I got it towed to a shop where they told me there was sludge in the engine (I think it was the engine) and that I would need a new engine to drive the car. The car is otherwise in good shape, it only had 85,000 miles on it. The driver's airbag warning light is also on but my airbag has never deployed, so I think that might just be a weird electrical thing a dealer would need to get rid of. "

    "Car has all parts and it runs and drives. Only reason for junking is due to it needing new brakes and I do not wish to spend anymore cash on it because I am going to get a new car. Just looking for a cash offer on how much I could get for junking it."

  • Ashley's 1999 Dodge Intrepid
    1999 Dodge Intrepid

    "It's drivable but overheats, plus water pump and radiator have small hole. Battery is in the car, the engine starts and runs but needs a jump. Engine and transmission complete and under the hood, over 2,000 miles. "

  • Julianne's 1995 Honda Civic
    1995 Honda Civic

    "We believe the head is cracked. We don't want to put the cash into it to fix it. We just spent a considerable amount on tune up, replacement parts, etc. "

  • Ronnie's 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
    1999 Chevrolet Malibu

    "Turn signals don't work and it runs a little hot. Good car for getting around town or first time driver to school or work. Not needed by our household anymore. "

  • Ashlee's 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass
    1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass

    "No longer starts, the battery is dead. The car is old and time to junk it since it is unreliable. The back of the car near the gas cap was hit, so there is body damage there. Inside, the stereo was replaced. "
