How long does the pickup take?
We can often pick up most vehicles in Iowa City within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier handles all their own scheduling, so we can never fully 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 cash or business check depends on the policies of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle.

Here is what other cash for cars customers have said:
"The transmission won't go in reverse, the back passenger door handle is broken, the front passenger door is dented and hard to shut. The stereo system was taken out. It is a good winter vehicle. I loved it and hate that I have to junk it. "
"It's got a dent in the front-end, the hood is tied down, can't go faster then 55mph or the hood could come open. Other than that, it's a good running car. I could drive it in."
"Cadillac Seville STS with a great interior and exterior but a blown head gasket. The tires and rims alone should be worth $200 to $300 by themselves and the body is in very good condition. The wax has really protected it. Title is available and manual is included. It did start up and run until recently when I tried a head gasket sealant and the coolant seems to be mixing with the oil. Has a sunroof that can be opened manually, cruise control, rear speakers, CD player, and advanced anti-theft system. Temperature control, headlights, and radio are still working as well. Should be well worth the price in parts alone. This car is easily worth the price and I have been told the body itself could be worth double. "
"Driver-side seat belt buckle does not work. Needs a new wheel baring. Power locks no longer work. Has a new starter and new master cylinder. New battery. Cracked front bumper. Car has cost me too much cash and I need to junk it."
"Vehicle has been parked for five-plus years, rear airbag suspension is out, and there is some sort of electrical short in the steering column, from what we were told."
"The serpentine belt broke, the air ride went out, and the driver-side door is beat up. The left mirror glass is broken but, other than that, the vehicle is in good condition. "
