How to get cash for your car in Waukegan

Essentially, the process of selling your 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 car in Waukegan:

  • 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, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace, but many times, these platforms don’t breed good 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 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 cars in Waukegan, 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 Waukegan car removal service is always free

Once you accept the offer, the only thing left to do is get paid! Depending on your zip code, we’ll dispatch our local Waukegan 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 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 car once and for all. Contact us today or fill out our easy-to-use form to get started.

Can we buy junk cars in Waukegan, IL with no title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Waukegan, IL with no title. In all cases you will need to be able to prove you own the vehicle. That is usually done by showing a photo ID matching a valid registration for the vehicle. In some cases additional paperwork is also needed. Contact us if you have any questions about what is needed to sell your car with no title in Illinois. Note that we can never buy abandoned vehicles under any circumstance.

How long does it take to tow away my vehicle?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Waukegan within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own scheduling, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on their 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 a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid by check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
