Yes, unless you are transferring the plates to a new vehicle. You can return the plates to your local DMV office.

We buy cars in New York, here’s how much you can expect.

We buy cars in New York, and virtually every junker that comes our way is accepted as long as it’s a complete vehicle. However, we do separate our cars into three separate groups when we figure out how much to offer you.

Cars that Haven’t Moved in Years

If you can see the pavement through your car’s floor, then it likely belongs in our first category. These clunkers will probably be recycled by New York car buyers and junkyards for raw materials, so size and weight of the vehicle will determine the price. For these Flintstone-like rides, you might expect a $35 to $165 payment from us before we take it to an auto salvage yard.

Those ‘In-betweeners’ With Salvageable Parts

However, if your car isn’t entirely rusted out, then it might be what we call an “in-betweener.” These clunkers might still be drivable, but they at least have some parts we can sell off. However, we won’t know exact pricing until we get more info on your exact vehicle.

The Not-Exactly-Junkers That You Can Drive to the Store and Back

Are you still driving around your junker to do grocery runs at Wegmans? Then you probably have what we refer to as a “This car isn’t !” type of ride. Because of these cars’ could be driven off a used car lot, these can be worth anywhere from $200 to $10,000.

It’s time to sell your junk car for cash in New York

If you’re one of the growing number of New Yorkers that doesn’t need a car, then hawk over your unused ride to us for cash on the spot. Stop paying for that NYC garage space you really don’t need anymore, and get in touch with The Clunker Junker today!

    "I got into an accident back in February. It was a very minor accident, but my bumper popped off in one piece. It looks like it's directly from the screws, and my lights work, but the cover was broken off, and it used to run. I don't know if maybe something was left on, and the battery died, but after the accident, it was still running. There are two holes that I know of in the power steering container as well as the hydro one. Those are the only two things I've found to be wrong with the car. "

    "The car runs well and is still very reliable. The car has some physical damages that are repairable. It just had a tuneup and passed emissions. I also just payed for the registration for the year."

    "The car runs great. The body is damaged from both of my children learning how to drive in it. I have had the car for four years. It's an excellent, reliable car. I just want to junk it for cash for a new car."

    "The driver-side window no longer rolls up. We use a tarp everyday to protect it from the weather. The speedometer does not always work. We think the mileage odometer works, but we're not fully sure if it works right all the time. It shows about 160,000 miles."

    "The car was in an accident recently, and I only had liability insurance. The left front quarter panel is dented, and the bumper needs to be replaced in addition to some work being needed on the driver-side."

  • Manuel's 2003 Volvo S40

    "The vehicle will not start. We were told it could be the ignition switch. The car has been sitting for about a year, so we're not sure what else could be wrong with it at this point. We could not afford to get it fixed, and it's not worth it to us at this point. The car stopped turning on as soon as the car's title was transferred to us. We never had the title transferred, and the seller left the buyer section open. We are friends with the seller, so we can get any info necessary from them. "
