We buy cars in Cottage Grove, MN and can pay more than junkyards

If you have a 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 junkyards 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 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 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 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 cars in Cottage Grove, MN you can be sure our local car buyers will show up on time and maintain communication with you throughout the process.

So how does all this work? We’re glad you asked! We pride ourselves in providing a really simple service. In general, it can be broken down into three parts:

  1. Enter your car details. To kick off the process, we will need to let us know what kind of car you want to sell and where in Cottage Grove it’s located.

While we can’t guarantee we can buy every car with no title, we often can.

  2. Receive your instant offer. In most cases, you’ll receive an instant offer for your 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 car based on the information you provide and various market forces like the price of scrap metal, parts inventory, and recent auto auction sales.

  3. Get paid cash on the spot. If you accept our offer, we’ll send one of our awesome Cottage Grove, MN car buyers your way. They’ll quickly inspect the vehicle to make sure your description was accurate and exchange cash for your car right at the time of pickup.

How long does the pickup take?

We can pick up the majority of vehicles in Cottage Grove within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own pick up schedules, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on the buyer's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

Do you pay cash or check at pickup time?

Whether you are paid by cash or check 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 better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid via business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!
