Your old clunker may be collecting more than just dust. By now it’s probably starting to rust and may not even be able to start and drive anymore. At this point it’s just an eye soar and is taking up precious space in your driveway or garage. Your neighbors start giving you dirty looks because they’re sick of looking at your junk car rotting away in your otherwise nice neighborhood. It’s time to sell your junk car in Owensboro, KY and The Clunker Junker wants to help!
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 Owensboro 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 Owensboro, KY 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 Owensboro, KY you can be sure our local junk car buyers will show up on time and maintain communication with you throughout the process.
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:
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 Owensboro 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.
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.
Get paid cash on the spot. If you accept our offer we’ll send one of our awesome Owensboro, KY 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.

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Owensboro within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer handles all their own pick up schedules, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the policy of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid via check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"Minor bad paint job, a few dents. It's been parked for over four months but, if charged up, it can run and drive unless the alternator went bad but it's still a good running car."
"It has a rebuilt engine, 56,000 miles, $1,600. New tires, $750. Leather seats. Complete body. Needs a jump to start. Needs new battery. Purchased new truck and need the Ford Explorer out of the driveway."
"Vehicle runs but needs a transmission. Two-wheel-drive. Has first and second gear but no third or overdrive. My son wants the wheels and tires because they're brand new."
"It has a leaking radiator, so it has been overheating. Now, it takes several minutes to start and it's drivable for about fifteen minutes before it stalls out."
"For the engine, I put that it doesn't start but I'm not sure because the battery has been dead for a while. I have no idea if it will start with a new battery or not, it hasn't been run in over a year. I put yes for flood damage, this is from a problem where the sunroof would leak into the paneling and come up into the rear passenger seat. No flood damage to the engine or anything like that."
"The car has been sitting since the end of February this year because that's when its inspection was up. I just cant afford to get it inspected. There is no sticker on the windshield due to the defroster constantly putting air up and around the sticker all winter and it fell off about a week ago. I am moving out of state tomorrow and need to get it out of where it is parked as soon as possible. Thanks so much! This car has been good to me and hopefully it can be of use to someone else. "
