How our East Chicago, IN cash for junk cars service works

The process of getting cash for junk cars in East Chicago, IN is simple when you contact The Clunker Junker.

  1. First, just provide us some information about your car. We’ll need things like the year, make, and model. Of course, we’ll want to know what condition it’s in too. For cars that might not really be junk, we can often pay a lot more. Also let us know about the status of the title. If you want to sell your junk car with no title in East Chicago, IN just let us know and we’ll do our best. We can’t make any promises in that case.

  2. Next, you will receive an instant cash offer. If you decide to accept the offer we’ll need some additional information so that we can get in touch with you and assign the best East Chicago, junk car buyer near you. We may also need the VIN to verify the correct vehicle model and options were selected in step 1.

  3. Once this information is received our East Chicago, IN junk car removal agent will call you to schedule a pick up time. And the best part is that you will be given a cash or a business check for the agreed-upon amount the same time that your junk car is picked up. The East Chicago, IN junk car buyer will arrive promptly at the scheduled pick up time, inspect your car to make sure the description you provided us was accurate, pay you, load it up and drive away.

Getting cash for cars in East Chicago, IN really is that simple. Once the junk car has been removed it would be a good time to let the Indiana DMV know you’ve sold your car. They’ll likely require to you turn in and plates and/or cancel the registration. You should also cancel any insurance you have on the car.

Why should you sell your junk car to The Clunker Junker?

You might be thinking that the only option to get paid cash for junk cars in East Chicago, IN is by listing your car in the classified section of Craigslist or a similar site. I hate to say it, but, you’re wrong.

To begin with, it might take you months to find a buyer that will offer you any significant amount of cash for your car. There probably aren’t a lot of individuals who buy junk cars in East Chicago, IN. We know you wouldn’t be coming to our website unless you were looking to get cash for a junk car so we expect your car to be just that, wrecked, non starting, and looking ugly.

But why can’t you just take your car to the junkyard? The answer is that you can but you won’t want to. If your car can’t be driven to the junkyard, you will likely have to pay for a tow service just to get it there. By the time you subtract the cost of the tow from the amount the junkyard quotes you over the phone, your junk car might be more valuable as a lawn ornament. This isn’t even taking into account the haggling that will take place when you drop the car off, “Oh you didn’t tell me it was this much of a junk car.” Classic move to try and lower the price on you. When we offer you cash for your car in East Chicago, IN we guarantee that offer as long as your car matches the condition when you entered it.

Obviously, your vehicle's real value depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell the vehicle at auction, it's worth more than metal values.

  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with usable parts are sometimes worth more .

How long does the process take?

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

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the policy of the buyer near you 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 truck drivers.

    2005 Hyundai Accent

    "This vehicle has been driven by my daughter since high school and has been beat to hell. It has hail damage over the entire body and has been in several fender benders, so it has damage to front and rear but still runs. The best thing on the car at this point are the tires. We just want to junk it since she now has another vehicle."

  • Candida's 2002 Jeep Liberty
    2002 Jeep Liberty

    "The heater does not work and you have to force the steering wheel a little to the left for the car to go straight. The front passenger side fender is missing as well. Other then that, the car is good."

  • Jocelyn's 1993 Chrysler New Yorker

  • Elise's 2007 Toyota Scion tC
    2007 Toyota Scion tC

    "I got T-boned on the drivers side, so that side is smashed, but the drive train and everything are fine. It is a standard and I even drove it home, so frame is fine on it. All lights are good, just the windows on drivers side are smashed. Bumper is messed up and a little surface rust on the passengers fender but fixable. "

  • Doug's 2003 Buick Regal
    2003 Buick Regal

    "We are getting a new car. I am exploring options of junking this car before the end of March. It is in great physical condition and runs well. Leather interior. There are just some annoyances that I was okay dealing with and not repairing (gas gauge is a bit flaky and there are some intermittent electrical issues with driver window and dashboard lighting). Traction control is not currently working and ABS light just came on recently. Replaced transmission in 2011."

  • Jenifer's 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan
    1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

    "There are seats missing from the back of the van. We have them, they are at my parents' house in another state. Everything else is still in/on the van. The battery was taken out to be tested. I'm honestly not sure if it got put back in or not. It may be there but I selected no, just in case."
