By now you’ve probably looked at our name and assumed that we are only interested in buying junk cars in New Orleans. This is a common misconception, so let us clear it up. Yes, junk cars are our bread and butter, but we buy nearly as many used cars that are not junk! Why would someone sell a decent car to a junk car buyer? Perhaps it needs minor repairs and you don’t want to dump any more money into it. Maybe you are moving and need someone to quickly pick it up, or maybe you just need a down payment for a new ride. With such a wide range of vehicles, here’s how we determine the value of them.
The whole country remembers when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. It was a tremendous disaster that caused billions in damage and unfortunately took many lives. It also took many great cars with it. When the levees broke and flooded the city, cars parked on streets and in garages were ruined. Flooded cars are very difficult to buy and difficult to deal with, and we cannot always purchase them. Titles must be properly branded as “flooded” and this must be disclosed to buyers by law. Since flooded vehicles have many problems with rust and electronics, buyers will often shy away from them completely. Flood waters can even ruin the structural steel, making it less valuable!
The bottom line is that if you need to sell your junk or used car in New Orleans, you should turn to The Clunker Junker. We often have the highest offers, and always provide the best service. Could you try and sell your car on Craigslist or Autotrader? You certainly could, but you already know what kind of headaches that comes with. Private car buyers are unreliable at best, and down right evil at worst. They’ll be looking to take advantage of you any chance they get, assuming they even show up to look at the car.
And auto salvage yards in N’Orleans aren’t really any better. Just because they are technically a “business” does not mean they implement good business practices. Their favorite scam is to make one offer on the phone, and then try and pay less when you show up. When we buy junk cars in New Orleans, every offer we give is guaranteed not to change, as long as the vehicle is described accurately and honestly. It’s not hard to run a legitimate junk car business, yet many choose not to. We believe in honesty, integrity, and friendly service. That’s what you get when you sell your car to The Clunker Junker!

It may depend on a number of different factors, such as the age of the vehicle and the exact location. Ultimately it is up to our local junk car buyers.

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in New Orleans within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own scheduling, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policy of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping.

"This vehicle has remote starter and four new tires. I am junking this vehicle because the crank shift pulley came out and I don't have the time to reinstall it. Moreover, I have another car, so I just thought of junking it instead of repairing it. Besides, the engine is perfect. I drove this car across states/borders without any breakdowns. Prior to the pulley coming out, it had been my year long winter vehicle. "
"Old family vehicle. Got parked with the purchase of another vehicle. Well used. Window motors are bad, paint chipping, etc. Will jump start and drive, just very used."
"The car has a blown head gasket. At the moment, the engine is apart from a friend who was going to change the gasket and never did. If put together, car runs and is drivable. There's nothing wrong with the transmission or anything else, the car just needs the gasket to be back on the road. The reason I'm junking it is I got another car and have no use for this one. "
"Had just picked the car up from having it repaired. New lights in dash, headlight, three motor mounts, A-frame, ball joints, control arms, tie rods. Mechanic didn't check the fluids. It went 90 miles without a drop of oil in in it. Car runs well, it just needs another engine now. Transmission is good."
"It drives great. All it needs is the catalytic converter and then it runs like a champ and all windows are on the car, other than the back little triangle window on the back drivers side of the car. So, all it needs is that back little window and catalytic converter to be a great running car."
"The fans are wired through a fan switch in order for those to run and the brake lights are wired through a toggle switch in order for those to work. Also, if I'm not mistaken, it is all hardwired through the radio or into one of the fuse boxes. I'm not for sure, please respond either via email, phone call, or text."
