Remove any personal belongings from the vehicle. You don’t have to vacuum or wash it, but remove things like clothes, electronics, tools, etc. We can’t promise we’ll be able to get them back to you if you leave them in the car (but we would certainly try!).

Let your insurance company know that you would like to either cancel your policy or move it to a new vehicle.
After the sale, let the Minnesota DMV know that you have sold the car and cancel your registration. This will absolve you of liability so you don’t get things like parking tickets or registration fees.

Why use The Clunker Junker to get cash for junk cars in Forest Lake, MN? Why not use a junkyard or an OfferUp ad or something? Maybe you think an online or physical car auction will serve you better? There’s a myriad of reasons why The Clunker Junker is the top junk car buyer in Forest Lake, MN.
First and foremost, we have been buying junk cars in Forest Lake, MN for many years and have a solid reputation. Do you think junkyards have a good reputation? Of course not! Auctioneers are pretty shady themselves. Not to mention, the customer service that some Forest Lake, MN junk yards provide isn’t exactly the best in the world. You won’t want to deal with rude people, bait-and-switch pricing and other poor business practices.
If you think that’s bad, try selling a junk car on Craigslist. Most ads that say “cash for junk cars in Forest Lake” are really trying to offer an inferior service with much lower offers. On top of all that sometimes you have to pay for towing! Our junk car removal team in Forest Lake, MN has free towing! Auctions aren’t a viable option either. The simple fact is that selling a car at an auction is simply gambling your car away. There’s no negotiation and most certainly no guarantee that you’ll get a fair price when your clunker is sold off.

If you have a full size truck like a Dodge Ram or SUV such as a Nissan Armada, the average value is a little more at $366, but could be $249 for small and mid-size vehicles like a Ford Fusion.

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Forest Lake, MN with no title. In all cases you will need to be able to prove you own the vehicle. That is usually done by showing a photo ID matching a valid registration for the vehicle. In some cases additional paperwork is also needed. Contact us if you have any questions about what is needed to sell your car with no title in Minnesota. Note that we can never buy abandoned vehicles under any circumstance.
If needed, the legal owner of the car should be able to easily obtain a replacement title through your local Forest Lake, MN DMV as seen below. Most states require a small fee for replacement and turnaround time can be anywhere from instantly to a couple of weeks:
We can often pick up the majority of vehicles in Forest Lake within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local carrier or buyer takes care of all their own pick up scheduling, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier's behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policies of the buyer near you who places a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for better book keeping and the safety of tow drivers. When you are paid via business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!
"It needs a new fuel pump. Got it started yesterday and drove it to my mechanic but it was very jerky while running when I drove it over. It is over $1,000 dollars to get it fixed. I got a new car and don't think I would get my cash back if I fixed the Jimmy and tried to sell it."
"No motor or transmission due to being parted out. Lost the title during a move. No wheels due to selling them. It's on jack stands. Interior gone, all glass still there, just missing one headlight and back lights. Need it gone due to moving and need cash."
"The car is in good condition but there's a problem with the locks. When you're putting the key to start, the key doesn't turn it on, so you have to play with it for a while. You can make it start but not on the first try. Car needs one of the stop light bulbs."
"Previous owner of the house left the car when he moved and said I could have it and he would mail me the title. I have been unable to contact him for eight months now and it is in my driveway in the way."
"There is a dent on the driver side back panel the size of a fist, the front driver fender is damaged because the door clamped on it and moved it inward, and the hood has a minor dent. Just got new brake pads and there are tires that are like four months old on it. It's drivable with about 175k miles on it. I'm just looking to junk my car because I got a new one and it's taking up space and causing me to pay insurance on it. I have the pink slip. Thanks."
"The front windshield is cracked and the bumper has some scratches. Other than that, it's in overall good shape. I've owned the car for ten years and love it, except it has some electrical issues. I just don't want to spend any more cash on it trying to figure out what the problem is. "
