Do you have an old junk car with foliage growing around it? Maybe that old car you used to drive in high school is still taking up space in your Albany, NY driveway.

The Clunker Junker pays cash for cars in Albany, NY, so there is no excuse to hold on to that old clunker for a minute longer!

We’ve been buying junk cars in Albany, NY for almost a decade, so we already know what you’re thinking: “I could get more cash for my junk car by selling it myself!”. You know what? We won’t lie to you, you’re probably right. But ask yourself how much your time, energy, and sanity is really worth. Selling your junk car online can be a major headache. Here are some common pitfalls you’ll almost definitely run into if you try and get cash for junk cars in Albany, NY by selling to a private junk car buyer:
You’ll spend a good amount of time creating (And sometimes paying for) an ad on a classifieds site. You’ll need dozens of photos of the vehicle, and you’ll need to write a compelling ad that will catch people’s attention. All of these things take your precious time that could be much better spent spending time with family or friends.
Once your perfectly written ad is posted, you’ll start to get messages from potential junk car buyers in Albany, NY. Sounds great, right? The problem is that not a single one of them have actually read the ad you spent all that time writing, and you’ll get the same questions that you’ve already answered from multiple people every day. “How many miles are on it?”, “What’s wrong with it?”, “Will you trade it for an Xbox?”. You start to realize that getting cash for your junk car in Albany, NY from The Clunker Junker might have been a much better idea.
Finally, you have a buyer that seems serious and wants to come take a look at your junk car! You set an appointment to meet for Thursday at 6:30pm. When 7:00pm rolls around, then 8:00pm, you start to realize you just had your time completely wasted by another no-show junk car buyer. Unfortunately this is all too common, people will have absolutely no respect for your time and will gladly waste as much as you’re willing to give them.
At this point it’s probably time to throw in the towel. You gave it your best shot and learned a valuable lesson: When you want to sell your junk car in Albany, NY contact The Clunker Junker and let us pay you cash on the spot and tow it away free of charge.

You might be tempted to reach out to a local Albany salvage yard directly to sell your junk car, but like selling on Craigslist, this comes with its own set of headaches. Many of these salvage yards are owned and staffed by some pretty unsavory characters. Not only are they usually very rude and uncaring, but some of the worst ones will actively try and take advantage of you. They know that most people aren’t sure how much a junk car in Albany is really worth, so they’ll give you an unreasonably low offer. On top of that, they may even make you pay for the towing yourself! A common scam run by auto salvage yards is to offer you one amount on the phone, and then offer you less when you bring the car to them.
Selling your junk car to The Clunker Junker ensures that as long as your vehicle was described honestly and accurately, the offer you see on your screen is the amount you’ll see on your check, period.

We can often pick up most vehicles in Albany within 1 to 3 business days. However, your local buyer or carrier handles all their own pick up schedules, so we can't ever fully guarantee a specific time or day for pickup on their behalf. Same day pickups are sometimes possible, but never guaranteed.
Whether you are paid by cash or business check depends on the policies of the buyer near you who makes an offer on your vehicle. While many of our buyers do pay cash for cars, some have moved to check for the safety of truck drivers and better record keeping. When you are paid by business check, keep in mind that The Clunker Junker fully backs up every payment and will pay you the full amount if there is any issue with the local buyer!
"The vehicle was involved in an accident and flipped over. There is damage to the windshield and the front passenger side. It has one deflated tire. All components inside are still intact. The front or rear passenger panel is missing where the tire is, and part of the passenger door is damaged as well. Pictures can be provided. "
"The vehicle has one flat tire. It is missing the driver side mirror which has been replaced by another mirror that is not made for the vehicle. We will not be able to keep up maintenance on this vehicle, so we want to junk it. We are looking for a cash offer of $175 to $200 with free towing."
"The original engine and transmission were replaced at 200,000 miles. The van dies and does not currently run, and we have purchased another vehicle. It has a towing package and four-wheel-drive, a sun roof and leather seats."
"The rear suspension or shocks blew out and it cannot be driven with the current damage. The rear driver side tire is flat due to the shock damage. The front driver side tire recently received a plug but wasn't done well, so that tire is also flat after sitting around from the shock damage. There is a brand-new tire in the trunk. "
"The front bumper is off of the vehicle. I still have the bumper, it's just not attached. I put turbo in the vehicle but never drove it around. I'm taking the turbo out of the vehicle and putting the stock exhaust manifold back on it. I have all of the interior seats and belts, they're just not installed in the vehicle. I will put them inside of the vehicle. There's body damage on the passenger side fender, the front and rear doors, the hood is damaged and the rear bumper is scraped. The car has a five-speed, standard transmission."
"I also have a 1997 Nissan Altima. The motor is dead, body is fine, tires are good, glass, windows, door panels and battery are good. I have the key but no title or registration."
