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 Gaithersburg, 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 Gaithersburg, 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.

I’m sold, how does the cash for junk cars process work?

  1. 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 Gaithersburg, MD junk car buyer near you.

  2. 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.

  3. When our Gaithersburg, 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 Gaithersburg, 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.

Sell your junk car in Gaithersburg, and stay safe

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 Gaithersburg 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!

Our Gaithersburg junk car removal service always includes free tow away

When The Clunker Junker buys junk cars in Gaithersburg, 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.

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 Gaithersburg?

The current average offer for vehicles near Gaithersburg, Maryland is around $245 with pickup included.

Of course, your vehicle's exact value depends on various factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell the vehicle at wholesale auction, it's worth more than salvage values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Salvage pricing is often based on vehicle size .
  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with usable parts are often worth more .

How long does the process take?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Gaithersburg 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 their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash 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 moved to check for better book keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid by business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up all payments and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!
