We all love our cars, but sometimes we have to come to terms with the fact that it’s time to let them go. Selling an old car that you have become attached to can be heartbreaking, but deep down inside you know it’s finally time to sell your junk car. Well, The Clunker Junker is here to help sooth some of that heartache with cash for cars in Presque Isle, ME. We buy junk cars and pick up free of charge all while making the process as easy as pie!
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 Presque Isle, ME 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 Presque Isle 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 Presque Isle, ME 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 Presque Isle, ME 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 Presque Isle 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 Presque Isle, ME 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.

"Car is modified with a racing suspension, crossbars, and with a cold air intake. Aftermarket radiator, new transmission as of February of 2014. New starter and thermostat within the past six months. Car has a slight overheating issue, it ran great before then. It has a little over 180,000 miles. I'm leaving the states for work soon and won't need a car for a while. I was told it's possible that it needs a new engine or a gasket fix. This car is definitely worth fixing. Over $3,000 underneath the car alone. Trying to get as close to a $800 cash offer as possible (traveling expenses). Thanks."
"Front bumper has a big dent. Rear passenger door has a rust hole. Bought a new car, didn't trade it in. Now I need to junk it and the transmission is slipping."
"This van still runs. It is in very good condition inside and out. I just do not want to invest in a new transmission. However, it runs and that was the only thing I needed. The tire just has a slow leak. It's sitting in my garage. I want it out. I want the best cash offer. Thanks."
"The mechanic believes that the engine is dead. The car has four new tires, new wheel bearings, new brakes and rotors, new radiator and hoses. The left side window will not roll down. Other than that, car is intact."
"The front left headlight area took damage when it hit a rock and the rock went underneath that part and hit something that caused the car to be messed up. After the accident, I drove it home but it was not in good shape. It sat all winter, so that's potentially why it doesn't start. All damage was focused in that one area and from that one accident."
"Frame is rusted. Engine starts but it's out of gas. Not safe on roads because of frame rust but it drives. Strong engine and rebuilt transmission. Newer tires. Regularly serviced. "
