Have you been searching high and low for a way to get rid of your old junk car? Some people hang onto an older car because they believe that it will one day be a classic car worth a pretty penny. Others drive a car into the ground so that they can avoid taking out a loan on a new car. In most cases, there comes a point when a vehicle can no longer reasonably be sold as a “used” car and it becomes a junk car. You may have already tried to get a trade-in offer from a local car dealership, and you may have already spent weeks waiting for a response to your online classified ad. The reality is that this vehicle has no value or use to you any longer, and it likewise seemingly has no value to other people. The one exception to this is The Clunker Junker. We pay cash for cars in Waterloo, IA.

How much will you pay for my car in Waterloo?

Today's average offer for vehicles in Waterloo, Iowa is $279 with pickup included. If you have a big truck like a Dodge Ram or SUV such as a Ford Excursion, the average value is a bit more at $348, but may only be $237 for small and mid-size cars like a Volkswagen Passat. Obviously, your vehicle's real value depends on a number of factors:

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

How long does the process take?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Waterloo within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer manages all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Will I be paid by cash or check?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who places an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better book keeping. If 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!

  • Daimion's 1993 Buick Park Avenue
    1993 Buick Park Avenue

    "I'm in the Marine Corps, fresh from a combat deployment. This was my car prior to the deployment and, now that I'm back, the car acted funny. I believe it's time for something newer."

  • Kyle's 1998 Nissan Maxima
    1998 Nissan Maxima

    "It is probably drivable. It has been sitting in my driveway for several months now. Last time I started it, it ran rough and blew some smoke, so I didn't try to drive it. The odometer broke at 114,000 miles last year and I probably put a couple more thousand on it. It has a slight dent in the front right bumper and has some rust on the rear wheel wells."

  • Angela's 2002 Mitsubishi Galant
    2002 Mitsubishi Galant

    "The car tries to turn over but won't. Just replaced the radiator and it has new tires. The alternator or the motor is locked up. Have purchased a new car and just want to junk this one. Has radio and all inside parts of the car are intact. "

  • Peter's 2000 Hyundai Elantra
    2000 Hyundai Elantra

    "The car is not completely gone but it is admittedly in poor condition. The rear windows fall down, the engine leaks, the (replaced) transmission is iffy, the driver's door won't open from the inside, the hood is dented and loose, one of the doors is scratched and dented, the windshield is cracked, the rear view mirror is gone, there's some flood damage inside, and it is very dirty on the inside and out. It may actually still drive if the battery and/or alternator is replaced but I just got sick of putting cash into it. I'm not expecting much at all. I just want to junk it!"

  • Marilyn's 1997 Buick Riviera
    1997 Buick Riviera

    "The paint on the hood, top of the car, top of the trunk, and driver side has oxidation blotches due to a custom wax job seven years ago where an electric buffer was used. The right side of the car was painted in 2009 when I scraped the side trying to park in a garage. The front wheel well chrome trim on the passenger side was bent in the car wash in 2012."

  • Leigh's 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix
    1999 Pontiac Grand Prix

    "Vehicle was broken into. They busted the driver window and stole the battery and radio. During the process of stealing the radio, the middle air vents were removed. Still have them. Car ran fine until the battery was taken. Had already bought a new car, so I have no use to fix it."
