Our carriers are usually very flexible and can often do night and weekend pickups.
The friendly Jackson junk car removal specialist will arrive and pay you cash for your car right on the spot. They’ll exchange payment for your title (if applicable), keys, and vehicle. Please note that when we say cash, we really mean cash or equivalent which includes business check.

We already know what you’re thinking: “Can’t I get more money for my junk car by posting it on Craigslist?” That’s a good question, and you’re probably right. Remember, The Clunker Junker isn’t buying your car so we can use it to get to work everyday, or to take on a joy ride up and down West Capitol street. You’ll almost always get more from a private buyer on a local classifieds site, but it’ll also be a lot more hassle. First you’ll need to find a serious buyer who will actually show up when they say they will to look at the car. You’ll need to let a complete stranger test drive your vehicle and they’ll almost always try and say there is something wrong with the car to get a better price. Of course there’s always a chance they are looking to steal the vehicle from you or cause harm. The Clunker Junker’s junk car buying service in Jackson is safe, fast, and easy.
It’s important to note that when you sell your junk car to The Clunker Junker, we always include free towing and pickup in your offer. That’s right, we never charge to remove your junk car in Jackson. Local junk yards and salvage yards may give you an offer over the phone, but they’ll often leave out the fact that you have to pay to tow the vehicle there if it isn’t able to run. Worse, they’ll sometimes try and force you to accept a lower offer than they promised once you arrive! The Clunker Junker guarantees to never change our offer on your vehicle as long as the information submitted to us is complete and accurate.
If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

"After some severe roof damage, I cut the top off and used the car around my farm as a 4WD utility vehicle. I haven't used it for a couple of years now and just want it out of my yard."
"It has a new starter, new alternator, the battery is unused, and it has new cables with new drum brakes in the back, along with a new tire on the left front. We suspect it needs a fuel filter since the fuel pump is working. However, I have purchased a new vehicle and have no further need for this vehicle. "
"The front bumper is missing, the passenger doors are dented/scratched, and the passenger mirror is missing. There is no radio. The engine got water in it from a puddle, so it does not start. "
"Transmission is in need of repair. Body is in good shape with the exception of a dent on the passenger side front door, a single dent about the size of a fist. It has good tires. "
"This car has dents, rust, and the paint fading. The engine runs. All of the lights are on except the front left blinker."
"Just put a new starter in the vehicle and have had various problems with it in the past. Decided it was time to move on. Purchased a new car and went to drive the Mazda to my parents' house to put it for sale there and the right rear tire is not moving. I was only going to try to get $800 out of it, as it's a drivable car, so taking it into the shop to sink more cash into it is not in my interests."
