You know we buy junk cars in New Orleans, LA, but we are more than that!

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.

  • What class of vehicle is it?
    We generally consider three classes of cars that we buy. The first would be the real junkers that most people think of when they hear the phrase "junk car". For these cars prices are often dictated by current scrap metal pricing in the New Orleans area, and thus can actually fluctuate up and down pretty quickly. The next type of car would be ones that are mostly junk, but have a lot of usable parts left. These parts might be kept and the rest of the car recycled. Then there are the nicer used cars that run and are in good shape. We can re-sell these vehicles at auction and can pay over $10,000 in some cases.
  • How desirable is the car or the parts?
    If your car is pure junk, this may not matter much. But if parts are going to be stripped and resold, or the vehicle is going to auction, desirability for our buyers is a big factor in pricing. The hard truth is that buyers are more interested in cars like Hondas and Toyotas compared to an old Dodge Intrepid or Buick Century.
  • Do you have the title and is it clear?
    Did you know that sometimes we can buy junk cars with no title in New Orleans? It's true, but we make no guarantee for every vehicle. It is taken on a case by case basis. One this is for sure though, cars with no title sell for less money. There are risks involved and limited options for buyers to resell, so offers are low. If you have the title but it's salvage or rebuilt, offers can be a little bit less as well.

Flooded vehicles are a big problem in New Orleans

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 Clunker is the best choice when selling your car in NOLA.

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!

If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

What is the value of my vehicle in New Orleans?

If you have a full size pickup like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Nissan Armada, the average value is at $426, but may only be $289 for small and mid-size cars like a Honda Accord. Obviously, your vehicle's real offer depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell the vehicle at auction, it's worth more than metal values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Junk offers are often based on vehicle size .
  • Does the vehicle work correctly? Vehicles with working parts are sometimes worth more money.

How long does it take to tow away my vehicle?

We can often pick up most vehicles in New Orleans within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer manages all their own scheduling, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup time on the buyer'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 an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for better record keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid via check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!

  • John's 2003 Kia Sorento
    2003 Kia Sorento

    "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. "

  • Shana's 1999 Pontiac Grand Am

    "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."

  • James's 1993 Volvo 940
    1993 Volvo 940

    "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. "

  • Marie's 2002 Chrysler Sebring
    2002 Chrysler Sebring

    "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."

  • Tamara's 2001 Saturn SL1
    2001 Saturn SL1

    "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."

  • Peter's 1995 Chevrolet Lumina
    1995 Chevrolet Lumina

    "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."
