The Clunker Junker and most of our partners are still operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, customer dropoffs have been suspended until further notice. Our staff is also working remotely, please excuse any background noise in phone calls! We are doing our best to keep things running as smoothly as possible. Thank you for your business, and stay safe!
Sometimes cars act like those in cartoons by sputtering, coughing out fumes, and doing a death scene worthy of Bogart. The only thing left to do is call for a rental and have the car towed home. Maybe It goes into the back yard until you can find the time to sell your junk car.
For those who live in HOAs, condos, or apartment complexes, the resident manager breathes fire, his yelling mouth taking up the whole screen, “that piece of junk has to GO!” The car’s owner is cowering behind, hopefully, a fire-proof wall, meekly nodding, while inside thinking, “I need to find someone who pays cash for cars in Catonsville, MD, and fast!”.
Fear not! TheClunker Junker’s going to swoop in like Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest to give you cash for your junk car in Catonsville, MD. You need an eyesore removed. You need money to put toward a new car. We get it. We can’t wait to see the smiling happy face as you hold out your hand for the cash and waive goodbye to that old clunker.
How does it work? You’ll fill out a few facts on our website. It will only take minutes. No waiting for prayer-filled days for someone on Craigslist or the local penny saver magazine to see an ad and respond. No waiting for days while your fingernails get chewed to nubs waiting for the buyer to finally show up.
When you fill out the details of your junk car on our website, we’ll pop out an instant offer after just a few seconds. The our valuation software is making up its mind how much cash we can pay for your junk car based on the information you provided us. When you accept the offer, we will show up, usually within 48 hours, for junk car removal. The resident manager will stop breathing fire, the butterflies and birds will fly about happily tweeting, and you’ll have money to put toward a new car. Everyone lives happily ever after.
First, we need to know about your car. Is the body in reasonable condition, or do the tires and body point toward each other? Does the engine start? Can the engine move the car? Being honest will avoid any contention at the time of pickup. We’ll need to know the year, make, and model of your car (such as “the car is a 2015 Nissan Altima.”) Next, you’ll tell us your zip code so we can make sure the offer comes from the closest Catonsville, MD junk car buyer near you.
We make you an instant offer. You accept. Now we need to know about you. Your name, address, and phone, of course, are required. We need information about the car’s title. Sometimes we ask for pictures of the car and documentation. After all this is done, we’ll notify the carrier we use for a pick-up. We’re at the mercy of his schedule, so while they work quickly we can never guarantee a specific time or day for pickup.
When our Catonsville, MD junk car removal specialist arrives, they’ll check over the car to see if the application matches the car. You’ll hand over your keys and the car, hold out your hand for a check, and the carrier will exit stage left.
The Clunker Junker is here to help you. We buy junk cars in Catonsville, MD in most conditions (we’ve even bought wrecked and mangled autos.). We know you’re pressed for time as well as money. When we give you cash for cars, we’re taking off your shoulders the worry and the anxiety from time spent avoiding fire-breathing wives or property managers.
Let’s admit it: we’re Americans. We want what we want and we want it yesterday. The word instant means something to us. It means more when we have a no-joke property manager or homeowner’s association rep frowning in distaste as s/he gives us a pink slip. Get rid of it or I will.
If you put an ad in Craigslist or in the local penny saver magazine, you have to wait for someone to answer. Then you bicker over price. Next, you wait to see if they even show up when they said they will. Only then can you in good conscience give the buyer your keys and the title to the car. Not to mention, there are some pretty sketchy characters on Craigslist and you never know if they may want to scam you or even cause you harm. The Clunker Junker fully background checks all of our Catonsville junk car buyers so you can rest assured our service is compeltely safe.
Selling your junk car on the private market might take weeks or months. It might never happen at all. If it doesn’t happen, the city tows your car, leaving you with no car and no money. You might even get a bill for the towing and be responsible for impound fees. Yikes!
When The Clunker Junker buys junk cars in Catonsville, MD towing is free. We realize if your car isn’t running, you possibly aren’t working. No paycheck. No money for a tow truck. We get it. We have a carrier and don’t need to trouble you to pay for towing. We just give you cash for your junk car and then get out of your hair. And smile as we watch your happy dance in the rear view mirror.

Today's average value for vehicles in Catonsville, Maryland is around $299 with free pickup. If you have a full size truck like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Nissan Armada, the average value is a little more at $373, but may only be $254 for smaller and mid-size vehicles like a Dodge Charger.

Unfortunately we cannot usually buy vehicles with no title in Catonsville, MD. Sorry about this! Maryland has very strict laws around vehicle ownership and we are at the mercy of following those regulations. You would need to obtain a replacemnt or duplicate title from your local DMV (see below). Once you have your title in hand we'll be happy to buy your junk car!
If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Catonsville, MD DMV as seen below. Most states require a small fee for replacement and turnaround time can be anywhere from instantly to a couple of weeks:
We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Catonsville within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or check depends on the requirements of the local buyer who places a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid via business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees all payments and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
"The car is in good condition. The problem lies in the engine itself. The crank pulley is wobbling and because of that the timing belt isn't running the way it should. It basically needs a new crank. "
"Because of throttle problems, RPM is unstable. Also, because I am going back to my home country, I just want to estimate how much I can get. Besides for the throttle body, everything is perfect and in good condition. I changed the water pump and timing belt in the last six months and it has a clean title. I want you to give me an estimate on a cash offer. Thank you! Could you also give me an estimate on a GT? I'm confused about the model and whether it's a GS or a GT. "
"I need something more economical. The air conditioner has a slow leak, so it doesn't work very well. I purchased it when I had a lot of kids to drive around and now it's just too big for everyday use. "
"The car broke down two weeks after I bought it . I need it gone. "
"The car is perfectly drivable. It leaks coolant, has visible body rust, forward-to-back cross member has bad rust at fasteners, needs new O2 sensor, and there's probably something wrong with the catalytic converter (won't pass emissions without work). Should be available to junk in the next two weeks. "
"The solenoid clicks, but starter will not engage. The engine runs, but needs rear main seal. The transmission is smooth with no known issues. "
