Picture this: You have a junk car you’re ready to sell because it’s wrecked or no longer runs. “How hard could it be to find someone to pay cash for cars in Clinton, IA?”, you think to yourself. You spend a few hours getting photos, writing up an amazingly detailed ad outlining everything that’s wrong with your car, and spend $25 or $50 to list it for sale on Autotrader and Craigslist. And then you wait. And wait..and wait some more. Nothing. After a week, you finally receive an email from a prospective junk car buyer in Clinton, IA who seems interested and wants to come take it for a test drive. The only problem is, your car doesn’t start, which you already made clear in your ad; but of course no one read it thoroughly. Another couple of weeks go by, maybe someone finally says they’ll come out to take it and never shows up and you never hear from them again. This is a common experience for anyone trying to sell a junk car in Clinton, IA, but we are here to help by paying cash for junk cars!

Not only that but we provide industry leading customer service and always go way above and beyond anything our competitors are able to do.
So how does all of this work? Here’s how to get cash for your junk car:
Describe your junk car. To make you an accurate offer, we’ll obviously need to know what kind of junk car you are selling and what condition it’s in. We’ve made our online questionnaire very simple with basic yes or no questions. Remember, we’re buying junk cars so we expect vehicles that do not run, have body damage and rust, or are otherwise not in great shape.
Check out your offer. You probably think someone has to review your submitted information and will give you a call back hours later, right? That’s what most of our competetors are doing after all. But you’ll be happy to learn that with The Clunker Junker we can give you an instant offer in seconds in most cases. No waiting or wondering.
Get paid cash for cars. This is everyone’s favorite part for obvious reasons. If you accept our offer, one of our local Clinton, IA junk car buyers will reach out to you to come pick up your car. They’ll pay you cash or check right on the spot and then load the car up on their tow truck. As long as you accurately describe your vehicle to us, you never have to worry about the price changing from what you agreed to on the website.

If you have accepted our offer on your junk car you’ll need to gather and take care of a few things prior to and after the sale:
Make sure you have all your documentation ready. While we buy junk cars with no title in Clinton, you’ll often get a higher offer if you have a title in your name ready to go. Please note that we never guarantee being able to buy a car without a title, but we can work with you within the laws set forth by the state of Iowa.
Clear out all your junk from the inside of your junk car! You don’t want to leave clothes, electronics, or other personal belongings in your car when it gets towed away, right?
At the time of pickup you’ll want to have your keys, title (if required), and of course your vehicle ready to go.
After the sale you’ll be responsible for letting the DMV know you sold your car and to cancel your registration and insurance.
When we pay you cash for cars, we’ll also offer free junk car removal in Clinton, IA with every offer.

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Clinton, 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 Clinton, 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 usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Clinton within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own pick up schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific pickup window on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by check or cash depends on the policy of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better record keeping. When you are paid via business 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!

"The transmission went out in 2012 right after we put a new EUC in the van. We dropped a few thousand dollars into the van when we bought it in 2011 but, after the transmission went out, we put it to the side, planning on getting it up and running for the family when we could. After a few years, we are just done with it. We want it gone."
