  1. Get your car ready for sale and remove all your personal items.
  2. Have your keys and your title ready if it’s required. We buy junk cars with no title in Mankato, MN but cannot buy every car in every circumstance.

We buy junk cars in Mankato, MN to save your sanity

Let’s talk about your other options for a moment. You’re probably thinking, “I bet I can get more cash for my junk car in Mankato, MN” by selling the car myself. We won’t lie, you might be right! But at what cost? Here are a few things you’ll be dealing with when trying to sell your junk car on your own:

  • No matter how detailed your ad is, people will be bothering you with the dumbest questions you can possibly think of. “How many miles are on it?”…197,000 just like the ad says. “Can I come take it for a test drive?”…No, the ad says it doesn’t run. You may soon lose your faith in humanity.

  • Even though you’re advertising a junk car for sale, people will nitpick every single minor dent, scratch, and paint chip to try and get you down on price. When we buy junk cars in Mankato, MN, we expect them to be junk and never hassle you over imperfections.

  • You’ll run into multiple no-shows and time wasters. “I’ll be there at 6:30pm!” they’ll say. As 9:00pm rolls around it’s clear you’re never going to hear from them again. It’s too bad you just canceled that dinner date and ruined your whole night.

Maybe you think having a Mankato, MN junk yard or salvage yard buy your junk car will be better? That’s what they’re in business for, right? We would probably get carpel tunnel trying to write about all the horror stories we have heard over the years. Here’s a common scam they like to pull: You’ll call them up, give them accurate details about your vehicle, and they’ll give you a quote over the phone. So you have your vehicle towed to their junkyard expecting to receive that amount. What do you do when they hand over a check for $100 less than they said? You’re not going to pay to have your junk car towed back home, you’ll probably just accept that you’ve been scammed and move on. Bummer!

When you get cash for junk cars in Mankato, MN from The Clunker Junker, you can be sure the amount you see on our website is the amount you’ll be paid. That is the end of the story!

How much is my car worth in Mankato?

Today's average value for vehicles near Mankato, Minnesota is around $311 with free pickup. If you have a big pickup like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Chevy Suburban, the average value is at $388, but is only $264 for smaller and mid-size cars like a Dodge Charger. Obviously, your vehicle's exact value depends on a number of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can sell your vehicle at wholesale auction, it's worth more than metal values.
  • What size is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Junk offers are often based on vehicle size and weight.
  • Has the vehicle been in a wreck? Vehicles with good parts are sometimes worth more .

Do we pay cash for junk cars in Mankato, MN without a title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Mankato, 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 Mankato, 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:

Will you pick up my vehicle on the same day?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Mankato within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local carrier or buyer manages all their own schedules, so we can never guarantee a specific pickup window on the carrier'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 local buyer who places an offer on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of truck drivers. If you are paid via business check, don't forget that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you the full amount if there are any issues with the local buyer!

    "The front driver side lamp is not on the car but I do have the casing. There is an issue with the rear end of the car and it sways. The check engine light is on. I have the title but never transferred it over to my name. The vehicle was a gift from my former employer. "

  • Adrienne's 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
    2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

    "It has aftermarket alloy racing rims. Only one tire is flat from sitting idly. There's the usual wear and tear from seven years of ownership. A couple of Marine Corp stickers are stuck on the back window. The encasement for the anti freeze cracked causing a chain reaction of liquids to flow into the engine, causing the engine to seize. I could not afford a new engine. It has been sitting since February."

  • Jeremine's 1994 Mercury Sable
    1994 Mercury Sable

    "The reason why the car doesn't start is that it needs a jump. The last time I drove the vehicle, I left the hazard lights on and it drained the battery."

  • Ivy's 1993 Toyota Corolla
    1993 Toyota Corolla

    "The car still starts and is drivable, but due to a collision to the passenger side, the whole right side is pushed in. I'm tired of seeing it in front of my house. "
