Thank you for your business, and stay safe!
Do you have a car in the driveway that you’d like to put out of its misery? Are you ashamed to invite people over because of the eyesore in front of your house? Are your repairs going to cost more than your car is worth? Ouch. We feel for you. That’s a rough situation, but we have the remedy for it. We buy junk cars in Columbia, MD.

We buy pretty cars, ugly cars, stagnant cars, banged up jalopies and everything in between. No car is worthless to us. Every car has some value, so you can feel confident about working with us. We can’t say it any other way.
The process is fairly easy. The first thing you need to do is gather all the information about your car so that you can tell us what you have. You need to know who made the car, what year they made it, its model name and other details about the conditions and color.
We will research the value using or company protocol, and we will offer you what we feel we should offer. If you’re pleased with the offer we make, let us know by accepting it.

It’s your right to sell your car any way you like, but wouldn’t you like to get paid for it this year?
You’ll receive a tangible offer from us within minutes, not weeks, month or years. You don’t have to wait until someone sees your car on the side of the road with a sign on it, and you don’t have to relist it if no one bids on it. Most of all, you don’t have to feel embarrassed because of a no-show. When you deal with us, you take the easy route. Isn’t that the way it should be?

We also pride ourselves on our courteous attitude toward our clientele. We love people, and we love helping them to make their dreams come true. You deserve to receive award-winning customer service no matter what you’re selling or buying.

We can usually pick up most vehicles in Columbia within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier manages all their own pick up scheduling, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific pickup time 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 buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. When you are paid by business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"The transmission is bad, the rest of the car works fine. Within the last 10,000 miles I've replaced the catalytic converter, down pipe, valve cover gasket, spark plugs, spark plug wires, heating coils, cv shaft and a wheel hub."
"The car was in a wreck and insurance won't cover it. The battery was damaged in the wreck so the car doesn't start. Only the front right is damaged. I'm tired of seeing a car sit there that I cant afford to fix!"
"The car is intact, however it requires a new AC compressor. The cost of the replacement exceeds the value of the car. Other than that the car runs fine. It has some minor rust, some faded paint, and a baseball sized dent in the right rear quarter-panel. If it will expedite the process I can take photos of the car upon request."
"There's no radio or aftermarket intake. It was drivable, just had a bad engine head. I haven't tried turning it on since. There's one flat tire. I wanted to know a price. I believe it has about 130k miles"
"The freeze plug has gone bad and I can't afford to fix it. I called the dealership that owns the car and they have not come to get it yet. I will be moving soon and the car cannot stay at the property."
"The car has a damaged fender, bumper and headlight on front passenger side from a minor accident in a parking lot in April. It was driven daily prior to the accident and for some days after. To pass inspection the damaged light, windshield and brakes would need attention. Last Fall the compressor for the air-conditioner was removed and replaced with a pulley. "
