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 Cottage Grove, MN 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 Cottage Grove 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 Cottage Grove, MN 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 Cottage Grove, MN you can be sure our local junk car buyers will show up on time and maintain communication with you throughout the process.

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 Cottage Grove 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 Cottage Grove, MN junk car buyers your way.

We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Cottage Grove within 1 to 3 business days.

Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the requirements of the buyer near you who makes a bid on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, a lot have started using checks for the safety of tow drivers and better record keeping.
