The current average value for vehicles in Lincoln, Nebraska is $270 with pickup included. If you have a full size truck like a Toyota Tundra or SUV such as a Nissan Armada, the average value is a bit more at $337, but is only $229 for small and mid-size vehicles like a Dodge Neon. Obviously, your vehicle's exact value depends on a lot of factors:

  • The year, make, and model. If we can resell your vehicle at auction, it's worth more than metal values.
  • How large is the vehicle and how heavy is it? Junk offers are often based on vehicle size .
  • What condition is the vehicle in? Vehicles with good parts are sometimes worth more money.

Will you pick up my vehicle on the same day?

We can often pick up most vehicles in Lincoln within 1 to 3 business days. Note, however, that your local buyer or carrier handles all their own pick up scheduling, 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 check or cash depends on the requirements of the local buyer who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, many have moved to check for the safety of truck drivers and better book keeping. When you are paid by business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you in full if there are any issues with the local buyer!

  • Matthew's 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis
    1997 Mercury Grand Marquis

    "Mechanic says the vehicle may have a cracked engine block. It overheats after a couple of miles. It has a cracked front windshield but it doesn't effect the view. The back passenger power window doesn't work."

  • Douglas's 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt
    2005 Chevrolet Cobalt

    "The car is going through engine failure. The engine has not failed yet but will soon and I cannot afford to fix it. I have a new car and would like to dispose of this one."

  • Hanna's 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    "The Jeep needs a new radiator. It died in on vacation in another state (and is still at the mechanics shop in that state) but we are back home now. I have the title for you but I can't be there in person when you guys pick it up. Any help would be much appreciated!"

  • Asya's 2008 Saturn Aura
    2008 Saturn Aura

    "The front passenger door was hit, so the door has scratches and is off the hook which doesn't close completely. Everything else is in great condition. Kept up maintenance and brand new tires and other components."

  • Nicole's 2004 Pontiac Grand Am
    2004 Pontiac Grand Am

    "Needs radiator and maybe cooling fans to drive without problems and needs hood, front bumper, driver side mirror, and headlights repaired. It just had $2,000 worth of work done to the front end before the accident. It also had four new tires put on with less than 30 miles of driving on them. I'm not sure of the trim but it's a four-door V6 with the chrome wheels, rear spoiler, and moon roof. Everything in the car works and it was driven after the front end accident but, without the radiator replaced, it will overheat. I have the hood and the bumper but they are off the car since I was going to fix the car originally. "

  • John's 2000 Saab 9-3
    2000 Saab 9-3

    "Car blew clutch last weekend. It will go into third gear and that's it. I bought it two years ago and it has a rebuilt motor, convertible top works, A/C works. I need to get my daughter an automatic for her 16th birthday. I don't want to put cash into fixing it or time into selling it for parts. "
