Whether you’ve had a junk vehicle sitting in your driveway for years and you’ve been unsure about what to do with it or you’ve recently decided that you don’t want your car anymore, you’re probably wondering how you can get cash for your car in Columbus, IN. While you likely have a few options to pursue, several reasons exist as to why you should choose The Clunker Junker if you want cash for your junk car, truck, or SUV.
The Clunker Junker’s cash for cars service is a fast and streamlined process. If you’re thinking about cash for junk cars, you may have recently found yourself in need of fast money. Knowing that you’ll likely have the cash within the next two days can help to alleviate these financial concerns. Trying to sell your junk car in Columbus independently can lead to struggles that seriously lengthen the period of time before you make a sale.
For example, you might post your vehicle for sale online. In addition to waiting for potential buyers to show up and hoping that they do so at all, you also have safety concerns to consider. You don’t necessarily know who is going to show up and what that person is capable of. We buy junk cars so that you can have peace of mind with a trusted and established company.
Also, since we buy junk cars fast, you don’t have to waste the time looking for a buyer or making calls to different entities. The ability to connect and complete many steps of a transaction online is one that many modern consumers want, and we offer that experience. By inputting information about your junk car, you can have all of the details situated in just a few minutes. In fact, you don’t even have to worry about delivering your car to us; towing is provided for you to make the process even simpler. Espcially if your car isn’t able to start and drive!
You’ll be thrilled to know that getting your junk car removed by The Clunker Junker is not a process that’s going to take a great deal of time. You’ll follow some simple steps:
You will start by filling out information about your car. The point of this process is not to engage you in a grueling task; it is to provide us with basic information about your vehicle. Once you have done so, you’ll be given an offer nearly instantly in most cases. This process should not take more than a minute or so, so you don’t have to worry about sitting around and waiting for days or weeks. Once you have accepted an offer, a representative will reach out to you to arrange for pickup.
In general, one of our Columbus junk car buyers will be out to pick up the vehicle within 48 hours. You don’t even have to worry about bringing the car in by yourself. When our representative arrives, this person will take your car away and give you cash for your car right on the spot. Unlike other similar companies, we do everything we can to never change our offer at the time of pickup. As long as your vehicle is accurately described to us, there’s no risk of a “bait and switch”. Our reputation and integrity are extremely important to us!
After you have filled out the information and received a cash offer for your junk car, you may start to worry about how you will get your vehicle to us if it doesn’t run. Having a junk car, after all, may mean that you have no way to actually drive it to get your cash. For example, imagine that you wanted to bring the car to an auto salvage yard in Columbus. In order to do so, you would likely have one of two options. You could pay to have the repairs done to drive the car one last time for only a short distance, or you could pay a towing company to bring it to the salvage yard.
Our service does not require you to do either. Instead, a representative will come to you and tow your car away. When you’re trying to sell a vehicle, the process should not become more of a hassle for you. Also, if you are making money on the car and then need to pay a towing company, you are losing some, if not all, of that money you just earned. Our team takes away this negative experience and allows you to have your cash. As you are trying to figure out what your total gain will be from this transaction, you don’t need to worry about subtracting towing costs or other fees. When you are quoted a price for your vehicle, you will receive that amount of money.
If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Columbus within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own pick up schedules, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policies of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for better record keeping and the safety of tow drivers. If you are paid via check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!
