Today's average value for vehicles near Detroit, Michigan is $330 with haul away at no cost. If you have a full size truck like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Ford Excursion, the average value is at $412, but is only $280 for smaller and mid-size cars like a Volkswagen Passat. Obviously, your vehicle's exact value depends on various factors:

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

How long does it take to pick up my vehicle?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Detroit within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own schedules, so we can never fully guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on the carrier'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 check or cash depends on the requirements of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have moved to check for the safety of tow drivers and better book keeping. If you are paid by check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you in full if there is any issue with the local buyer!

  • Andrew's 1992 Chevrolet 1500
    1992 Chevrolet 1500

    "Engine was rebuilt under 20k miles ago. Steering column is broken by windshield wiper, controls and brakes are going out. This is why I am going to junk it."

  • Jessica's 1999 Pontiac Grand Am
    1999 Pontiac Grand Am

    "I bought the car a month ago from a dealership. Now it will not turn over and, when you try, it makes a popping noise. The car otherwise is in good condition except for the passenger side mirror which I still have. "

  • Cathy's 2002 Ford Escort
    2002 Ford Escort

    "The timing belt broke and, due to having a stupid interference motor, it will cost more for a new engine than the car is worth. There is some peeling on the spoiler but no rust, just the shine is coming off."

  • Tabatha's 1999 Buick Century
    1999 Buick Century

    "Basically, it needs a steering rack, inner and outer tie rods, and lower control arms. I bought everything until it got to the steering rack, then I didn't want to spend any more than I already had on a used car, but the engine and everything are fine. Just front end body work needed. It doesn't have to be junked but I don't have the means or knowledge to fix it for a reasonable price."

  • Brandon's 2005 Nissan Sentra
    2005 Nissan Sentra

    "The car runs fine, but a spark plug is stuck in the head and I can't get it out. Other than that, its a good car. I just don't need it anymore."

  • Stephen's 2000 Acura Integra
    2000 Acura Integra

    "I've taken the engine out completely, along with my aftermarket struts and rear lower control arms and rear sway bar. The stock trunk is with the car but has no glass. No fenders or bumpers. All interior is stripped, the doors are not beat up and still intact with the glass, has front windshield, no tires are on the car, the rest of the suspension is there. I need to get this off the side of my street or the police are going to take it and charge me with the towing and everything else. An immediate response would be much appreciated."
