We buy junk cars, trucks, and SUVs and pay cash in Saint Louis!

Have you been blasting 105.7 The Point or HOT 104.1 in an attempt to drown out the squeaks and squeals your vehicle makes on Highway 70? Or maybe you’ve been shoveling down gooey butter cake and toasted ravioli, like stuffing your face with STL’s finest will magically fix your car? It’s true that music and local fare might temporarily cheer you up, but they don’t change the fact that you need cash for cars in St. Louis as soon as possible. Not only will The Clunker Junker buy your car, but we’ll even go out to you and pick it up from your home or place of residence.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to sell your car in STL.

Let’s be real: What are you going to do if your car breaks down on the East Side at 3 a.m.? Sure, you can grab some food from that guy who barbecues all night outside the clubs, but how are you going to get home? Sometimes you can’t even get Domino’s to deliver to the East Side, let alone find an Uber driver willing to venture out there. You can prevent this headache by selling your car to a St. Louis car buyer instead of continuing to cruise around until it finally breaks down.

Yep, you read that right. You can sell your junk car in St. Louis instead of praying that it survives yet another rush hour on 270. Here’s what happens when we offer cash for cars St. Louis residents no longer want:

  1. We Evaluate Your Vehicle. Before we buy junk cars in Saint Louis, we ask sellers to fill out a quick online form. This form contains basic info about the make and model of your vehicle, as well as how many miles it has and whether it runs. Don’t be embarrassed to tell us you’ve got a hunk of junk in your garage; trust us, we’ve probably seen worse. Remember, we pay cash for cars in St. Louis for folks that need it gone in a hurry, and everyone has a different opinion about what gets classified as .

  2. We Make an Instant Offer. We don’t waste time when it comes to giving you an estimate on your vehicle. Generally, you can have an offer on your car faster than you can dial up Imo’s and order a large pepperoni pizza. While most offers are instant, some exceptions apply. However, we’ll keep you in the loop if you’re one of them. Our sellers rarely wait more than one or two business days for an offer.

  3. We Haul Your Vehicle Away. Tow trucks aren’t cheap, even if you’ve got free towing from AAA. You probably don’t want to attach your clunker to another vehicle and drag it through the chaos of downtown STL either. That’s why we make St. Louis junk car removal easy from start to finish. We offer fee-free hauling for accepted vehicles within 24 to 48 hours in some cases, and we can even collect your car on an evening or weekend.

Sounds good, right? Yes, but you still might wonder why you should choose a car buyer like The Clunker Junker over eBay, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace when you’re ready to get rid of your car in The Gateway to The West. Let’s break it down:

We’re a safe alternative when selling your car

There are some weird folks out there, and they really don’t need your address or any other identifying information. We totally get that, which is why we perform thorough background checks on our car removal specialists before we send them your way.

We’re the fastest junk car buyer in STL.

We keep things moving almost as fast as STL Cardinals pitcher Greg Holland’s pitches when a seller initiates the car removal process. As we mentioned earlier, we offer instant estimates for qualifying sellers, then we haul away your car in a day or two. You can finish the entire process in just a few days, as long as you have a clean title or registration.

We’re fair and honest when we buy cars in Saint Louis

If we can’t buy your vehicle, we’ll let you know rather than stringing you along for days. There’s a good chance we want your car, though. To date, we’ve made cash offers on more than 20,000 vehicles in Missouri. We’ll never pull the scam you’ll find with junkyard and salvage yards where you get one offer that sounds good over the phone, and then a much lower offer when the driver arrives to take your car.

We pay more cash for cars in St. Louis than anyone

We aren’t one of those shady chop shops downtown. We offer you what your vehicle is worth based on its condition, and we don’t pretend your car is in awful shape if it’s not. There’s a big difference between a 2002 Dodge Caravan with a missing transmission and a 2015 Kia Sedona with a crushed fender, so your estimate will reflect the true value of your vehicle.

So, why haven’t you called us yet?

When it comes to getting cash for cars, St. Louis, MO residents trust The Clunker Junker. Find out firsthand why our cash offers are hotter than a St. Louis summer when you request a car removal at your home or office.

If you prefer to get a quote over the phone, you can reach us at (888) 383-4181 during our normal business hours.

Can you pay cash for junk cars in Saint Louis, MO without a title?

Yes! In many cases (though not all) we can buy junk cars in Saint Louis, MO 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 Missouri. 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 Saint Louis, MO 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:

How long does the pickup take?

We can usually pick up the majority of vehicles in Saint Louis within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier takes care of all their own schedules, so we can't ever guarantee a specific pickup window on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.

What form of payment will be made, cash or check?

Whether you are paid by business check or cash depends on the policies of the local buyer who makes a bid on your vehicle. While some of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have started using checks for better record keeping and the safety of tow drivers. If you are paid by business check, remember that The Clunker Junker fully guarantees every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
