If you are like most people, you may have been thrilled to drive your new car off the lot many years ago. The honeymoon phase with your car may have lasted for several months or longer, but the love affair inevitably faded over time. The car got increasingly older and less appealing. Even though your auto loan was paid off a long time ago, the car may now be costing you money in the form of large repair bills every couple of months. Perhaps you have already decided not to drive it any longer because it simply is not worth repairing at this point. I hate to break it to you, but you might have a junk car. The good news is that The Clunker Junker pays cash for cars in Dubuque, IA!

We are the easiest way to sell your junk car in Dubuque, IA

This, of course, leaves you in a difficult situation. Your junk car is in such bad shape that a dealership will not buy it from you, and finding a buyer through an online listing seems pretty far-fetched. However, you need to get rid of it, so it may have crossed your mind to pay someone to take it to a Dubuque junk yard. With this solution, you may be required to pay the salvage yard a large fee for the disposal of a vehicle and to pay a towing service to remove the junk car from your property. Many people who need to sell their junk car in Dubuque, IA see this as the only real option, and they decide to simply let the car fall into even worse condition sitting in their driveway or garage for a few extra years rather than to put even more money into it through a hauling or junk removal service.

How much is my car worth in Dubuque?

Today's average offer for vehicles near Dubuque, Iowa is around $312 with haul away at no cost. If you have a big pickup like a Chevy Silverado or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is at $390, but is only $265 for small and mid-size vehicles like a Ford Fusion. Obviously, your vehicle's real offer depends on various factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell the vehicle at auction, it's worth more than salvage values.
  • How big is the vehicle and how much does it weigh? Salvage offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Does the vehicle work correctly? Vehicles with usable parts are often worth more money.

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

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Dubuque, 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 Dubuque, 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:

How long does the pickup take?

We can pick up most vehicles in Dubuque within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

What form of payment will be made, cash or check?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the policy of the local buyer who places an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid by business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

It's been sitting in my work's parking lot for a couple weeks. It worked great but, because I couldn't get it started again without taking the wiring harness apart, I had to get a new vehicle. The right side mirror is missing and there is a crack in the windshield. All door panels are intact but the passenger side handle is missing. Front tires are only a year old, rotater cap is less then a year old. New driver side taillight, new drivers side headlight in the vehicle, and an aftermarket radio."
