Are you tired of looking at an old clunker sitting in your Cedar Rapids, IA driveway or garage? Many older cars can be sold to a private buyer, but the unfortunate reality is that it can take many long weeks or even months to find a private buyer for a very old vehicle. When a car is very old or in very poor condition, finding a private buyer on your own may be impossible; they are undesirable almost by definition. The dealership may not be interested in accepting an old, worn out car as a trade-in either. So what can you do when you need to sell your car quickly? When many people find themselves in this type of situation, there comes a time when they begin to wonder if they need to pay someone to haul the old vehicle away. Some may even procrastinate on taking action because they want to delay this seemingly inevitable expense for as long as possible. The good news is that you do not have to pay your hard-earned money to get rid of your old clunker. At The Clunker Junker, we are excited to pay you cash for cars in Cedar Rapids, IA. After you learn how to sell your junk car to us, you will wonder why you waited so long to contact us!
Before you pay a junk car removal service to haul the vehicle to a Cedar Rapids junkyard in town, contact us to request a free instant quote. We pay cash for junk cars in Cedar Rapids, IA regardless of condition. Some junk car buyers only pay cash for certain makes, models and model years, but this is not the case with us. As long as the car is complete, we are ready to buy junk cars regardless of their age, condition or model. In fact, the car does not even need to be operable.
Now that you know that you can get cash for junk cars from us, you may be curious to learn what your car is actually worth. If you have researched your car’s value online, you may have been disappointed to learn that sites like KBB and others are ineffective at valuing a car that doesn’t run or was in a wreck. However, your junk car has value to us. Here’s a basic rundown of how we value junk cars
What kind of car is it? As you can probably imagine there will be a big difference in price between a 2008 Cadillac and a 1995 Toyota Tercel. Year, make, and model is one of the biggest factors in determining your junk car’s worth.
Are there still useful parts on it? Desirability of parts is another factor to consider when you sell your junk car in Cedar Rapids, IA. Because so many are sold and are still on the road, parts for a Toyota Camry might be more in-demand and desirable than a unique vehicle like an Alfa Romeo.
Is it really a junk car? As you can tell from our name, we buy junk cars in Cedar Rapids, IA. But we also buy used cars that still have plenty of life in them. Maybe it needs minor repairs and you don’t want to deal with it, or just want some cash for your car so you can use it as a down payment. We’ll be happy to pay cash for used cars as well, and we can sometimes pay up to 20X more than a Cedar Rapids junkyard would!
If you want to learn how much your junk car is worth, you simply need to complete the online quote form at the top of this page. This form can be completed within a minute or two because it only asks you for basic information about the car. This includes its age, make and model, mileage, general condition and a couple of other factors. By taking this step, you may be thrilled to learn that you can get cash for cars in Cedar Rapids, IA. You may be even more excited to learn that our Cedar Rapids, IA junk car buyers can be at your home to take the vehicle off of your hands right away.
After you learn more about the process to sell your junk car to us, we will contact you to set up a junk car removal appointment. We have a strong network of junk car buyers in Cedar Rapids, IA, so we are able to make this appointment for a time within the next two days in many cases (sorry, we can’t guarantee any specific time for pickup). Regardless of where you live in the country, we are usually able to make this appointment very quickly. We always arrive promptly as scheduled, and we will bring the money with us to pay you cash for your junk car on the spot. If the vehicle cannot be driven away, we will be ready to tow it. You may think that you would need to pay us a fee to tow it away, but this is not the case. We never charge a towing fee for inoperable vehicles.
When we arrive, you should be ready to let us take the car from you right away. We will also need the car keys and the car’s title, if required. We can sometimes buy junk cars with no title in Cedar Rapids, IA but do this on a case by case basis. After we leave, remember to let the Iowa DMV know that you have sold your junk car. You also should cancel your auto insurance policy for the vehicle.
We buy cars like yours regularly in Cedar Rapids, and we are your preferred source for junk car removal. Rather than pay for a removal service, you can get cash for your vehicle right away from us. We buy junk cars in all conditions at a fair price. In addition, we can complete the process quickly.

Spend a few minutes requesting a quote from The Clunker Junker online to see what the vehicle may be worth.

The current average offer for vehicles in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is around $244 with free pickup. If you have a big pickup like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is a bit more at $305, but could be $207 for smaller and mid-size sedans like a Honda Civic. Of course, your vehicle's exact offer depends on various factors:
Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Cedar Rapids, IA. Sorry about this! Iowa has very strict laws around vehicle ownership and we are at the mercy of following those regulations. You would need to obtain a replacemnt or duplicate title from your local DMV (see below). Once you have your title in hand we'll be happy to buy your junk car!
If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Cedar Rapids, IA DMV as seen below. Most states require a small fee for replacement and turnaround time can be anywhere from instantly to a couple of weeks:
We can often pick up most vehicles in Cedar Rapids within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer manages all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup window on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policy of the buyer near you who places an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. When you are paid via business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"We are selling this vehicle because at the last servicing the mechanic said it needs about $1000 of work. It has a slow oil leak so needs gaskets. Also needs some ball joint work on one front side, needs brake and transmission fluid flush and may need gaskets in those systems as well. The cassette deck has an mp3 adapter stuck in it and the radio/cassette power line has been rewired to prevent the stuck adapter from draining the electrical system. The age and growing maintenance costs are prompting us to sell."
"Needs a new clutch and battery. Needs new interior, door panels, needs a lot of cosmetic work, and I haven't found anyone to buy and don't have time to wait."
"The car is very well kept with a few very small stains, nothing a good shampoo won't fix. It doesn't leak or overheat. A great car that's been my daily driver for almost a year. I got something new so I'm trying to get a good deal for it."
"The two passenger doors don't open from inside door handles, only outside handles work. The driver side passenger window does not open. Check engine light is on due to sensors and the passenger side rear taillight is broken."
"Going to junk the car because we bought a newer, larger car to fit our family. Tension pulley broke this morning. Car is drivable but will need to have tension pulley replaced soon. Driver window not working, inside driver door handle also does not work."
"Vehicle stopped operating shortly after I purchased a new daily driver in 2006. Intended to repair but never got around to it. It has been sitting in the driveway. "
