How do I get cash for my junk car?

   First, tell us about the car you're selling.

Got a junk car you want to sell? Start by filling out our simple and intuitive submission form above. We'll ask you some questions about your car or truck such as its year, make, model, and trim. Next, tell us about the condition of the vehicle like whether it can start and drive, how many miles are on the odometer (high mileage vehicles are fine!), and what kind of ownership documentation you have. If you're trying to sell your junk car with no title in Cedar Rapids, IA we may be able to help you with that!

Finally, we'll ask if the vehicle has any exterior damage such as missing or loose bumpers and body panels, large dents or hail damage, and broken or missing lights, glass, and mirrors. Answer the questions accurately and honestly and our offers will never change at the time of pickup like many bait-and-switch schemes online. Our integrity is very important to us!

Junk Car Removal FAQ

Can you buy vehicles with salvage, rebuilt, or other title brands?

Yes, The Clunker Junker can and will buy vehicles will nearly any title brand. Additional paperwork, such as a salvage disclosure or affidavit may be needed in some cases. Please note that vehicles with unclean titles are worth less, and this is reflected in our instant offers. We cannot buy your car if you have a lien on the title. This is true in Iowa and nationwide.

Will I receive a receipt or bill of sale for my vehicle?

Generally it's the selling party (yourself) who provides a receipt to the buyer (us), rather than the other way around. However, The Clunker Junker and our partners will be more than happy to sign a bill of sale if needed. This is more important for newer vehicles than it is for older ones. Regardless, you should always notify the state of Iowa and your insurance company that you have sold the vehicle to remove liability from your name

When can you pick up my car? I need it gone today.

The Clunker Junker makes every effort to be or work with the fastest and best junk car buyers in Cedar Rapids. Once we collect all the required information (and photos in some cases), we'll forward it to our carrier or buyer immediately and they will reach out to you to schedule an exact day and time for pickup. Our carriers usually respond within a few business hours but can sometimes take longer. Because The Clunker Junker does not directly handle scheduling, we cannot fully guarantee any specific time or date. With that said, however, most of our junk car removals happen within two business days and many even happen on the same day as submission.

Will I be paid in cash or check?

The Clunker Junker cannot guarantee any specific payment method. Some buyers do pay in cash, especially for lower amounts, but not all of them do. Carrying large amounts of cash into an unknown situation can pose a serious safety risk for drivers and many buyers are opting to pay in via check. Please keep in mind that The Clunker Junker backs up all checks written by third parties 100% and is proud to have never had an unresolved payment issue.

Is The Clunker Junker the car buyer, or a third party?

Most true junk or scrap vehicles are sold to a third party buyer, dismantler, or recycler. We do not own or operate our own junk yard or salvage yard in Cedar Rapids. The Clunker Junker is always working to ensure our third party buyers operate with the highest business standards and ethics. However, The Clunker Junker does directly buy cars that have not reached end of life and we'll generally pay much more than a junk yard would for these vehicles.

Can I sell my car without the title in Cedar Rapids?

It depends on a few different things like the age of your vehicle and what other documentation you may have available. We can buy some cars without titles in Iowa, but you will usually need a photo ID that matches a valid registration and/or insurance card to prove ownership. We cannot purchase abandoned vehicles or vehicles that have active liens under any circumstances. We will also not pay for impound fees if they are required to release a junk vehicle.
