Three Steps To Get Cash For Your Junk Car In Kentucky

We have a very simple process for getting you cash for junk cars in Kentucky. We make it easy to sell your junk car in the barbecue capital of the world. When you sell your junk car to us at the Clunker Junker, we’ll handle everything so that the only thing you need to do is reach out and say you want to sell your car. Here is a breakdown on how it works:

  1. What kind of clunker do you want to sell?

    We’re willing to pick up practically anything with four wheels and an engine. The amount of cash you’ll get may vary, but as soon as you have made the decision to sell, we’ll make an offer. Let us know what year, make, and model the vehicle is, and also its condition.

  2. Accept our cash offer for your car

    Let us know that you are looking to have your junk car removed from your home in Appalachia. We’ll give you an instant cash offer. If you accept the offer, you’ll be the proud new owner of a handful of cash.

  3. Our finest Kentucky Junk Car buyers pick up the car

    We’re masters at buying junk cars in Kentucky. We’ll swing by your home and pick up the junk car to whisk it away. You won’t need to worry about environmental protections on car disposal or finding a distant junk yard.

How Much Can I Sell My Junk Car For in Kentucky?

You might be wondering how much you will get when you sell your junk car in Kentucky – it’s hard to say with certainty, but here’s a quick guide. In general, you’ll make as much money selling your old car in the Cumberland Plateau as you would in the Jackson Purchase – no pun intended.

Real junk cars that are beyond repair

Kentucky junk car buyers are eager to pick up these cars. Auto salvage yards will pay by the pound for the valuable metals in the car. The car parts themselves can sometimes be sold for more than salvage value if they are still operating.

The stereotypes about the junk cars in Appalachia don’t matter much to us! Even if it’s a rusted mass of metal, we’ll be willing to swing by and pick it up. Don’t think twice about whether someone would want whatever clunker you’ve got.

You can expect between $50 and $225 for these wrecks.

The nearly-junk

Got a car that isn’t ready for the junk yard but you still want to sell it? We buy junk cars in Kentucky that still have some of their non-materials value. These cars will be much more valuable than the rusted hunks of metal at the scrap yards – expect to earn a bit more for these.

The used car

Even if your car is only a bit used but otherwise in good working condition, we’ll buy it. While we’re known for junking clunkers, we’re also happy to purcahse practically any other kind of car too. You can expect anywhere from $200 to $15,000 for these cars; the sky is the limit!

How to sign your Kentucky car title

Required: The state of Kentucky requires that all titles are signed in front of a notary public!

We have put together a simple guide and example for how to sign your Kentucky title when you are selling your vehicle. If there are multiple owners listed on the title, they must all sign the title unless the names are separated with "OR".

  1. In Kentucky, there are two different ways you might have to sign your title. If you have a Kentucky title and are selling your car within the state, you will need to sign and notarize the front of your title in the dealer only section (yes, really!). Please do NOT follow the image below. However, you should only do this if you are selling to The Clunker Junker. If you are using our website as a reference for a private sale, sign and notarize the back of the title instead.

    If you have a Kentucky title and are selling the vehicle outside the state, you will need to sign and notarize the back of the title. Use the image below as an example.

  2. First sign the back of the title where indicated by "Transferor(s) signature". This will need to be done in front of a notary.
    Always sign in pen on the seller line and never sign on the buyer or transferee line
  3. Print (don't sign) your name on the back of the title where it reads "Transferor(s) printed name(s)".
    Always include any and all middle names or initials that are used in the owner section.

How to get a duplicate Kentucky title

The process for getting a duplicate or replacement Kentucky title is fairly simple. If the vehicle was last titled in a state other than Kentucky you must apply for a duplicate title in the previous state. The registered owner should do the following:

  1. Fill out the Kentucky application for certificate of title.
  2. Bring your application to you local county clerk's office.
  3. The fee for a replacement Kentucky title is $6.00.

How to get rid of an abandoned vehicle in Kentucky

Getting rid of an abandoned vehicle in Kentucky can be a difficult process. Unfortunately, you cannot just sell any junk car that ends up on your property if you do not own it. You'll need to follow the Kentucky abandoned vehicle removal procedures. We have given a general overview of what that entails below.

You can read more about selling an abandoned vehicle in Kentucky

  1. Attempt to locate the legal owner of the vehicle using the VIN 17-digit number.
  2. Contact your local law enforcement agency to have an abandoned vehicle removed from your private property.
    You cannot apply for the title of the vehicle unless you are the towing company in possession of the vehicle

Can you buy vehicles in Kentucky without a title?

In some cases, we can! You will need to be able to prove that you are the legal owner of the vehicle by showing the buyer a valid photo identification that matches a current registration and/or insurance card. Please note your offer will generally be much less than if you did have the title, and we cannot commit to buying every vehicle in every city without title.

What if my title doesn’t look like the one pictured?

Kentucky often changes their title documents from year to year. If you have questions about your specific title, please contact your Kentucky DDL.

Do I need to turn in my license plates?

Unless you are transferring your registration, your plates should remain on the vehicle. They will be destroyed and disposed of by the company that purchases your vehicle.

What should I do about my auto insurance?

You will need to notify your auto insurance company that you have sold the vehicle so they can either cancel your policy if the vehicle was sold, or transfer/renew the policy on your new vehicle.

Is there anything else I need to do?

You may need to notify your county DDL that you have sold the vehicle. You can contact them with any additional questions or concerns about the transfer of your title.

    "The truck was bought in hopes of an off-road project. It's become an eye sore for my neighborhood, and I need it gone. The sun roof is missing, and the windows don't roll down. The truck starts and runs with a jump. The A/C blows ice cold. I tried selling it online but only get weirdos."

He is in agreement, since he will not pay for the vehicle to be shipped to him. It's not worth that much cash. The top engine cover leaks oil, and it is overheating. "

Everything else is in perfect condition, and it has a new hybrid battery and backup camera in the dash."

Currently, trying to get this vehicle back to another state is not in our best interest because of costs, either to get it running properly or haul it back. We're just looking to junk it for some cash and get it off of our hands."
