We buy junk cars in Council Bluffs, IA and can pay more than junk yards

If you have a junk car, the first thing that probably comes to mind when you need to get rid of it is to call up a local Council Bluffs junkyard. This makes sense, but here’s the dirty truth: A lot of those junk yards are run by pretty sleazy characters. They’re trying to make a quick buck at your expense and have some tricks up their sleeves. First, they’ll offer you cash for your junk car over the phone and when the driver shows up, they’ll try and pay you less than you agreed to. This is called a “bait and switch” and is extremely common. The other downside is that salvage yards can really only pay what the vehicle is worth in parts and raw materials. In some cases, The Clunker Junker can beat those prices by up to 10 times because rather than crush and recycle your junk car, sometimes we can re-sell them at auction for much higher prices.

You might also search for a junk car buyer in Council Bluffs, IA on classifieds websites. This comes with a whole new set of problems. We’ve all tried to sell something online, and we all know how unreliable private buyers can be. Someone will show interest in your junk car and will all of a sudden stop responding to you for no good reason. Maybe you get so far as to schedule an appointment with someone to buy your junk car, and they never show up. When we pay cash for junk cars in Council Bluffs, IA you can be sure our local junk car buyers will show up on time and maintain communication with you throughout the process.

How to get the most cash for your junk car in Council Bluffs, IA

So how does all this work? We’re glad you asked! We pride ourselves in providing a really simple service. In general, it can be broken down into three parts:

  1. Enter your junk car details. To kick off the process we will need to let us know what kind of junk car you want to sell and where in Council Bluffs it’s located. We’ll also need to know what condition it’s in and whether you have the title for the vehicle. If you are trying to sell your junk car with no title, let us know. While we can’t guarantee we can buy every junk car with no title, we often can.

  2. Receive your instant offer. In most cases you’ll receive an instant offer for your junk car right on our website. Others will “call you back” if you’re lucky. We’ve invested in creating a software system that can instantly evaluate the value of your junk car based on the information you provide and various market forces like the price of scrap metal, parts inventory, and recent auto auction sales.

  3. Get paid cash on the spot. If you accept our offer we’ll send one of our awesome Council Bluffs, IA junk car buyers your way. They’ll quickly inspect the vehicle to make sure your description was accurate and exchange cash for your junk car right at the time of pickup. Of course, they will also tow your junk car away free of charge. There are never any hidden fees when you sell your junk car to The Clunker Junker

How much is my car worth in Council Bluffs?

Today's average value for vehicles near Council Bluffs, Iowa is around $278 with free towing.

Obviously, your vehicle's real offer depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell the vehicle at auction, it's worth more than metal values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how much does it weigh? Junk offers are often based on vehicle size .
  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with usable parts are sometimes worth more money.

We cannot pay cash for cars in Council Bluffs, IA without a title

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Council Bluffs, 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!

How long does it take to pick up my vehicle?

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Council Bluffs within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer manages all their own pick up scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on their 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 policies of the buyer near you who makes an offer 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. If you are paid via business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:

  • Candace's 1993 Nissan Quest
    1993 Nissan Quest

    "The van is in good condition, except for some power steering issues. It has a new alternator and windshield put in last year. All parts are working and can be sold for profit. We are busy professionals who travel a lot and don't have time to deal with repairs. Looking for a fair offer."

  • Brennen's 1991 Jeep Cherokee
    1991 Jeep Cherokee

    "I hit a deer with it. The front panels, driver side lights, and grill are broken. The radiator is busted and it got pushed back into the fans and belts. "

  • Vivi's 1990 Lexus LS
    1990 Lexus LS

    "Got a newer LS400 is the reason for junking it. The engine runs great. Power steering has a leak. Has damage on rear panel from accident. Has sunroof, radio, and heat that work. Some wiring affected by blowout but it's fixable. Has cool-looking tinted windows. Exterior needs painting."

  • Jeremy's 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
    1998 Pontiac Grand Am

    "I am junking the car because it is not worth it to fix when I can just take the bus. The exhaust pipe is rusted through, there is a flat tire, and there are engine problems that make it hard to start the car and have it stay started. There are also problems with the electric window and the radio display. A panel on the door is detached but it only contained the make and model of the car and is purely cosmetic."

  • James's 2006 Dodge Charger
    2006 Dodge Charger

    "The car is "somewhat" drivable. The reason I am junking it is because the transmission needs to be rebuilt (just don't feel like investing that cash). You can manually shift it but then it consistently pops out of gear and the only way to reset it is to turn the car off and on. There are some small dents and scratches on the front right side and the right side mirror is "glued" on. Other than that, the entire car is solid, physically. It also has 22-inch rims and tires that still have a good amount of life on them."

  • Jacob's 2004 Ford Ranger
    2004 Ford Ranger

    "The truck starts but doesn't drive at the moment. The current offers I've received already are $800, $1,002, and $750 without radio."
